Microsoft PowerPoint/PowerPoint 2010


Hello! I am trying to create a test in PowerPoint 2010 where each slide has a question and 4 radio buttons for an answer. When the user selects an answer I display a modal box indicating if it is correct or not. What I would like to do is keep a running score and display that on each slide, however, I cannot figure out how to carry the number correct/incorrect from slide to slide. Is that possible? I do not know if one slide knows what was on the previous slide if that makes sense. Thank you!

Scott - the only thought I have is to use Paste Special Link .  This would automatically update from the original so I am not sure that will work in a progressive slide show.
