    Hi,

    I am trying to link an excel column into numerous fields with a word document. For example: If I have an elaborate excel speadsheet with many rows & columns, and I have a MSWord document with over 70 fields, can I associate an excel column to a specific or numerous MSWord fields? I would love the ability to click on an entire row within excel, copy the data, then paste it into Word in the appropriate fields that I designated for each column. Hopefully what I am asking is making sense - Can it be done?

    Thanks
    Mike

    Boy, there are a lot of ways to skin this cat, but I'm not sure of the manner you want (eg, pasting an excel column into a number of pre-existing different fields). Some ways that you could play with are:

    1. Copying an Excel cell, and paste special (paste link unformatted text) into a place in a word document. That will create a linked field between the spreadsheet and the word document.

    2. Paste-link a column of Excel data into a Word document differing ways (RTF will give you a table, unformatted text will give you a list of linked fields with hard-returns.

    3. You could put the spreadsheet right into the Word document by pasting it as an Excel object.

    You need to tinker around with the different means of paste-linking the two apps in order to find out what best suits your needs.
    Good Luck,
    Tom
