Inserting a Microsoft Word Document

If you need to create a chart for backwards compatibility with Power-Point 97-2003, you can embed a Word document object for Word 97-2003. You can insert a Microsoft Word table into PowerPoint by inserting the document as an embedded object in a slide. When you insert a new or existing Word document, a Microsoft Word document opens in the PowerPoint slide. A Ribbon will also open which assists you in creating and formatting the document. Double-click your embedded object to open Word and edit the document. You must have Microsoft Word installed on your computer to insert a Word document.
