Copying Excel Data to a PowerPoint Presentation

PowerPoint presentations often contain numeric data in the form of tables and charts. Charts are perhaps the more prevalent form in which numeric data is presented—they’re highly graphical, and if set up properly, easy to interpret. Because presentations are generally best when they contain more pictures than words, charts are an important component.

PowerPoint presentations can display Excel data as cell blocks (which appear as tables) and as charts. You can build the chart in Excel and then copy it to the presentation slide, or you can use Excel data to build the PowerPoint datasheet, which in turn produces a PowerPoint chart.
