Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Insert Excel data in PowerPoint, part of PowerPoint Quick Tips.
- [Instructor] If you ever need to display data…from an Excel spreadsheet in your PowerPoint presentation…you can embed it as a linked object.…That way, if the data changes in the spreadsheet…it will automatically update…in your PowerPoint presentation as well.…Start on the slide where you want to embed the Excel file.…Under the insert tab click object,…then select create from file…and then browse to find your Excel file.…Make sure you click the link check box here.…If you leave it unchecked…the Excel file will still be embedded…but changing the original file…won't update the data in PowerPoint.…
Click okay.…The Excel data appears and you're free to resize…or move it as needed.…And again if a change is made to the original Excel file…and you can actually double-click the Excel data…here in PowerPoint to open it in Excel,…once you make that change in Excel and save it…you'll see that change reflected here in PowerPoint as well.…
