Including an Office Document in an Excel Worksheet

A benefit of working with Excel is that, because Excel is part of the Microsoft Office program suite, it is possible to combine data from Excel and other Office programs to create informative presentations. Just like combining data from more than one Excel document, combining information from other Office files with an Excel workbook entails either pasting another Office document into an Excel workbook or creating a link between a workbook and the other document.

There are two advantages to creating a link between your Excel workbook and another file. The first benefit is that linking to the other file, as opposed to copying the entire file into your workbook, keeps your Excel workbook small. If the workbook is copied to another drive or computer, you can maintain the link by copying the linked file along with the Excel workbook, re-creating the link if the linked file is on the same network as the Excel workbook. It is also possible to use the workbook without the linked file. The second benefit of linking to another file is that any changes in the file to which you link will be reflected in your Excel workbook.
