Copying Word and PowerPoint Data to an Excel Worksheet

Whereas Excel data can be a valuable addition to Word documents and PowerPoint presentations, the reverse also is true—you can realize significant savings of time and effort by using existing Word and PowerPoint content in Excel worksheets. Following are some examples of how you can use Word and PowerPoint content:

  • If the data's first appearance is in a PowerPoint datasheet, copy it to an Excel worksheet to avail yourself of Excel's superior formatting and calculation tools. If the data is valuable beyond the scope of the presentation, you'll get much more out of it in Excel.

  • If a table containing a valuable list already exists in Word, bring it into Excel for quick sorting and filtering. Whereas these features are available in Word, their Excel equivalents are much more powerful and easier to use.

  • Reuse clip art or drawn objects from PowerPoint or Word in an Excel worksheet. If the graphic images you need already exist in another file, don't reinsert or redraw—paste them!

  • Copy an individual PowerPoint slide into your Word document. If you've created a visually pleasing slide that conveys something valuable for your document, don't waste time re-creating it. Using slide content in your Word documents also contributes to an overall visual consistency between your files.
