Insert a Table from Microsoft
Open a presentation in PowerPoint.
In Normal view, under the Slides tab, select the slide on
which you want to insert a table from Excel.
In the Ribbon, click the Insert tab. In the Table group,
click Table and choose Excel Spreadsheet from the
dropdown palette. Your table is inserted on the slide, as
shown in Figure 10-7.

Click in a cell and enter your data as desired. Resize the
table by dragging a corner sizing handle; click and drag
the table to reposition it.
When you insert a table from Excel, you’re embedding it as an OLE
object so that you can benefit from the added functionality of Excel
tables (such as calculation capabilities), but you’re limited in
formatting the table in PowerPoint.
