I have copied a series of tables from my Excel workbook into a Powerpoint presentation. This presentation is to be used on a monthly basis. Is it possible to update the data in the workbook, and it will automatically update on the Powerpoint presentation? Please advice.

Thanks in advance..!

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

Hi gymwrecker,

It will update automatically if you paste the Excel tables into Powerpoint using Paste Special > Microsoft Excel Worksheet Object. But before clicking OK on the Paste Special dialog select the Paste Link optionbutton.

Keep Excelling.

Great! One more question, do I have to save the PPT presentation and the Excel workbook all in the same folder for this to work?

No, don't have to put them in the same folder. But if you put the linked-to file one place, then move it later to another, the link will be broken. So it is important to put it in a permanent place.
