Combining Two or More Data Types in One Document

After you get beyond simple letter writing and number crunching, you get to the really interesting aspects of Office as a unified system. For maximum effect, you can build compound documents by combining data created in a variety of sources—starting with a Word document and integrating an Excel worksheet into it, for instance, or incorporating an Excel chart into a PowerPoint presentation.

The most common example, of course, is a corporate report, in which financial data from Excel (or tabular material from Access) is blended into a Word document, as shown in Figure 6.6. Or you might use Word to generate explanatory text for an Excel worksheet. You can store résumés from job candidates as Word documents in a field in an Access database. PowerPoint presentations almost routinely are compound documents with slides containing charts and tables from Excel.
