Chapter 30. Using Programs Together > Using Word and Excel

Using Word and Excel

Word and Excel work really well together, especially for documents that require you to display numerical data in an organized way. This section describes copying and linking Excel information into Word and also inserting a Word table into Excel. Of course, you can also copy text from Word and place it in Excel. We'll cover that in "Copying Text from Word to Excel or PowerPoint," later in this chapter.

To copy a range of numbers:

1.
Arrange the Word and Excel documents so that you can see them both (Figure 30.1).

Figure 30.1. Open Word and Excel so that you can see both windows at the same time.


2.
Select the range of numbers in Excel that you want to add to the Word document (Figure 30.2).

Figure 30.2. Select the range of numbers in Excel that you want to copy.


3.
Click and drag the Excel object to the Word window (Figure 30.3).

4.
Release the mouse button to drop the Excel object into the Word document (Figure 30.4).
