How can I insert Excel in Word on a Mac?

Asked by ckinyc (1158points) March 11th, 2009

I know on PC you can insert a new table as a FULLY functional Excel worksheet. I looked everywhere on my Mac version but I just couldn’t find a way to do this. Can anyone help please?

What are you trying to insert it into?

ckinyc's avatar

On PC, you can have a fully functional Excel file inside your Word doc. You can edit it anyway you want anytime. I just couldn’t find a way to do the same on the Mac version.

It could be a simple table of a few items with calculation.

Oh I guess you did say Word in your question.. oops, missed that. :) Yeah it should be in there. I’ve read also that you should be able to copy/paste your spread sheet in.

But that will rendered it as text only. You can no longer able to change part of the data and have it calculate the new total for you automatically.

This is the best (but crappy way) to do something similar. Unfortunately both apps have to be open. It was easier to make a video.

@johnpowell: That’s great! I tried something similar but couldn’t get the table to be exact size of the data from Excel. I need to follow this closely. Thank you so much of making a video! This is over the top nice. thanks again John!

No problem. I hate typing. The video was easier to do. And hopefully more helpful.
