PowerPoint graphics. Presentations are
quite graphical—meaning they’re usually
driven by pictures, more than text. Well,
a good presentation is, anyway, because a
good presentation isn’t filled with
paragraphs and long bulleted lists. It makes
its point with quick bursts of text (“Sales
up in Third Quarter!”) and then
substantiates that with pictures—photos, clipart,
and drawn shapes. To bring any graphic
from PowerPoint (or Word, for that matter)
into Excel, simply click on it to select it,
copy it to the Clipboard (Ctrl+C) and then
jump back to your worksheet in Excel and
paste it (Ctrl+V). Graphics are placed
above the spreadsheet (they float on top
of it), so you can move and resize the
graphics once you bring them into the
worksheet, using the handles on the
corners and sides. Figure 14-32 shows
that process under way.
Figure 14-32
Grab and drag from a corner handle to make
your graphic larger or smaller, and maintain its
width-to-height ratio at the same time.
What, no PowerPoint charts? Given that PowerPoint already fires up an Excel window when
you create a PowerPoint chart, it makes more sense to copy that chart data into Excel and then
use Excel’s charting tools to make any chart you want shown in an Excel worksheet. To do so,
double-click the chart in PowerPoint to open an Excel window displaying the data that made
the chart, and copy that to the Clipboard. Then go back to your Excel worksheet and paste. You
can then use Excel’s charting tools (see Chapter 11 for the whole process) to make an Excel
chart that can be instantly updated whenever the supporting data is changed.
