You can create a PowerPoint presentation or a Word
document that contains an Excel worksheet you can
edit without leaving PowerPoint or Word. This means
you can demonstrate different business scenarios
as you give your PowerPoint presentation or do
sophisticated mathematical calculations while in
Word. To use this feature, you must embed your
worksheet into your PowerPoint or Word file. You
can use an existing Excel file or generate a new
Excel file entirely within PowerPoint or Word.
When you embed Excel documents, the Excel
worksheet becomes part of the PowerPoint or Word
document and is accessible only through PowerPoint
or Word. Embedding differs from paste linking. When
you make changes to an Excel worksheet embedded
into PowerPoint or Word, changes you make only
affect the PowerPoint or Word file. When you paste
link a worksheet into PowerPoint or Word and make
changes to your file from Word or PowerPoint, Office
also updates the Excel file.
Open the PowerPoint
presentation in which you
want to include a worksheet.
Note: This example uses
PowerPoint. You can open
Word and follow similar steps to
embed your document in Word.
