  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN Forum.

    As far as I know, it's stored  in a slide level tag called Timing. The contents of the tag looks like this

    It is the delimiter and the numbers indicate the interval in seconds between each mouse click. I think you can access the Rehearsal Timings via it.

    Hope this can help you.

    Best Regards,

  • Leo_Gao makes a good suggestion, however it may be that what you're looking for is the AdvanceTime property of the SlideShowTransition object; which in turn is a property of each Slide object.

  • This is not what I am looking for.  Using the method you suggested will modify the timings values as seen in the Animation Pane.  If you use PowerPoint's "Rehearse Timings" feature, the timings that it sets do not affect the values seen in the Animation Pane.

  • The AdvanceTime property only affects the duration of a slide.  I need to control the timings of each animation in a slide.
