Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Paste Excel elements into PowerPoint, part of Data-Driven Presentations with Excel and PowerPoint 2016.
- [Instructor] My work in Excel is done,…everything I do from this point forward…is really going to be focused on PowerPoint…and this presentation, my 2017 Update.…There are different slide layouts available in PowerPoint.…The default is that the first slide will be a title slide…and all of the remaining slides that we insert…will be titles and content.…However, I'm going to change this to one of two options.…If I want to include a title on the slide itself…I will choose Title Only,…and if not, I will select Blank.…
When I have a blank slide or a slide of any layout…when I click under it and press Enter…I get another slide of the same type,…so it's really easy to insert one slide,…get it right in terms of its layout,…and then modify the remaining slides.…Let's swing over to our Excel workbook,…which is called Copy Paste,…and grab the first object that I wish to insert…in my PowerPoint presentation.…And that is the number of units that were sold…expressed as a chart.…
Select it, right-click, Copy,…Alt + Tab, back to PowerPoint,…
