Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Link and embed data and objects, part of Data-Driven Presentations with Excel and PowerPoint 2016.
- [Instructor] When I'm copying data…from Excel and pasting it into PowerPoint,…in addition to the five major methods…that I showed in the last movie,…we have some additional ways that we can…copy and paste information.…I'm going to select a table again,…and copy it here in Excel.…Then switch over to PowerPoint…and open a new presentation.…See what the design is of our new presentation…Office theme used by all slides.…This is a slightly different drop down…than we saw in Excel, but the same basic information.…
If I go to my second slide,…and just so this is very easy to understand,…let's make it a blank slide.…There's nothing on it.…Here are my five standard ways that I can paste.…Let me show embedding first which we…skipped in the last movie.…When I embed, I am embedding an entire workbook.…Remember that all I selected was a table,…but I'm going to click Embed.…If I double click, notice everything has changed.…First, I have an object, and if I scroll around here,…you'll notice that this is a lot.…
It's pretty big.…
