Most Microsoft Office apps play nicely together, and Word and
PowerPoint are no exception.
In this lesson,
you'll learn how to add a Word document to your PowerPoint presentation.
The first way that you can do this is to go to the Insert tab and choose Object.
Let's choose Create from file, and
then browse to where our Word document is stored.
For our first example, lets tick this Display as icon and then press OK.
Now, you can see there is a word document icon here in the presentation.
This file is actually inside the PowerPoint file now.
And you can double click it to open it up inside of Word.
Even if you send this presentation to someone else,
the Word document is inside and they can access it.
Another way that you can work with a Word document is to insert some
of the content from inside it into the presentation.
Let's follow the same steps here but
this time we won't check the Display as icon option.
When we press OK,
we'll actually see a text box with content from inside the Word file itself.
It might need some reformatting or reworking, but
it's still far faster than recreating it from scratch.
Don't forget these options when you need to work with Word and
PowerPoint documents in tandem.
