Task 3 How to Insert an Object

If you have a picture file from another program, you can insert it into your Office document, worksheet, database form, e-mail message, or slide. You can also insert objects such as scanned images, Word tables, Excel worksheets, and other types of visual objects. You insert objects in different ways, depending on the program you're using. One way is to use the Insert, Object command. This opens the Insert Object dialog box, where you can access a variety of visual objects.

  1. Open the Insert Object Dialog Box

    Choose Insert, Object to open the Insert Object dialog box.



  2. Choose Create from File

    To insert an existing object file in PowerPoint, click the Create from file option. If you're using Word or Excel, click the Create from File tab.



  3. Open the Browse Dialog Box

    To find the object file you want to insert, click the Browse button to open the Browse dialog box.



  4. Locate the Object File

    Locate the picture file or other visual object file you want to use. When you find the file, select it and click OK (in PowerPoint) or click Insert (in Word and Excel) to return to the Insert Object dialog box.



  5. Click OK

    When you're ready to insert the object file, click OK in the Insert Object dialog box.



  6. View the Results

    The object appears in your file. You can now resize or move it as necessary.
