I have a line chart that has multiple points of data on it that shows growth from 2008 - 2013.  I'm going to be giving a presentation to show this growth, but I want to emphasize a point in the middle (around 2011) where the growth skyrocketed.  To do this, I want to click...the chart builds using the Build In feature but then stops on 2011.  I'll talk, then click again, and the chart will finish the growth going up to 2013.  I've googled this till I'm blue in the face but I can't seem to get a straight answer. 

 

My only thoughts are to build two charts...one that has data up to 2010, and one that has data the rest of the way, and then do a dissolve or something on click to show the growth.  Here is what my chart looks like in it's present form...help!!

    That's the way I have to do it also as there are no built in controls to animate the graph line.

     

    I use a left to right wipe which looks more convincing.
