You can copy cells from an Excel workbook onto PowerPoint. You can turn your text into a table that's directly editable from within PowerPoint, as an embedded workbook, as a photo, or a text box with no formatting. Staff author Jess Stratton demonstrates each method and how to work with the data once it has been pasted to PowerPoint.
- [Voiceover] With my Excel data open I can copy this data…onto a slide in PowerPoint.…The first thing I'm going to do…is select all the data in Excel,…right-click on the data and choose copy.…From here, I'm going to open up my PowerPoint presentation,…right-click to insert a new slide,…and inside the slide area I'll right-click…and choose paste.…I have some options,…I can choose to paste using destination styles,…meaning it's going to choose a color scheme…that matches that of my presentation.…
It looks a little small here,…but you can see that the data is indeed purple,…and it was not purple in Excel.…I can choose to keep the source formatting,…which will paste it as a table also,…but it will be clear,…which is how it was in Excel.…I can choose to embed the data,…which has a lot of the considerations…that I showed you in the last video,…meaning your file size will be quite large,…however you can work with this Excel sheet…right in PowerPoint,…you can also paste it as a flat picture.…
