    You can use the Select Start/End tool under Range on the Chart Workbench.

    Use the drop down calendars to select your start and end dates, then you can advance the dates bar by bar by clicking on the right facing arrow at the end of the long slider adjacent to the date windows (circled red below). The left facing arrow on the left end of the slider moves the dates one bar backwards.

    You can ignore the "21" in the Extra Bars window.

    If you have presentation software like PowerPoint you can right click, copy image, and paste into slides and play slide show to replay the charts in sequence if that helps.
