Excel and Word

Posted by Mark O'Donnell on September 04, 2001 8:39 AM

Is there a way of linking a word document to part of an excel spreedsheet? In an ideal world I am wanting to be able to click on Sheet 2 and for it to bring up a word page, rather than excel. Or is this just asking too much from Microsoft?

This is close to your ideal: In Excel, Choose Insert>Object> and select Word Document. This will embed a word document in you Excel file. When you double click the document, Word will activate and you can edit it. When you click outside, you eill return to Excel. You can also go the other way and embed an Excel sheet in Word.
