Good day,

I realize that this is partly a Word question but it is partly an Excel question too.

I want to link a cell in Excel to a part of a sentence in Word. For example, I calculate a result in Excel; say I get $100. Then I switch to Word and want that result to appear as part of a sentence. For example:

"An analysis shows that the result is $100."

Obviously, if I change the analysis and the result becomes $110, then I want the text in Word to change to:

"An analysis shows that the result is $110."

automatically.

Does anybody know how to do this?

Thanks for your help,
Michael

What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.

Hello,

Do a search in the Word Help file on 'linked objects, Microsoft Excel'. I tried it and found that the RTF selection works nice in the "As box".

PS. Make sure to Click Paste link in step 6.

Cut the cell in Excel, paste in Word;

Edit > Paste Special > Paste as Link (Unformatted Text).

The next time you open up Word, it will ask you if you want to update links. Say yes.
