    I found the link below with instructions for how I could put a link to a Powerpoint presentation into a OneNote notebook.

    Sounded like just what I needed. But I followed the instructions (I thought) and got no link.

    I tried finding something on Microsoft's site, but couldn't seem to do so.

    Am I just not reading the site below right, or is there a pice missing? r ???

    Regards,

    Hi Chuck,

    I can see why you're not getting what you want from this!

    If all you're looking to do is add a hyperlink to a PowerPoint presentation to a OneNote page, then you don't need all of that - select the text or image you want to use as the hyperlink, right click and choose Link or hold down Ctrl and press K. Click the Browse for File button at the end of the Address text box, navigate to the file that you want to link to and click OK. You might find that the dialog box disappears, but just click on the page again and it will re-appear. Then click ok, and your link is there.

    The link you found is referring to OneNote's ability to create a direct link between a document and a corresponding page so that you can make notes on or about that document and have OneNote understand what you're referring to.

    Does that help?

    Mike.

    Mike, OK, now, being a troublesome sort:

    What do I need to do if I want to embed something (Word, excel, PPoint) into OneNote?

    Is it an "Insert"?

    It doesn't seem that you ever have to save OneNote changes -- that they are automatic -- so I'm a bit skittish about "just trying it."

    Hi Chuck,

    What do you mean by embedding in this case?

    As opposed to just a link Mike, is there a way, sort of like a single file web archivepage (MHT) saves all the page "parts" into the archive, the OneNote file would actually contain the page.

    ?

    You have the possibility to insert a whole file into a One Note page. The result is an icon that you can click to open the full document. Is that what you want?

    Rul, that will work. Thanks.

    It would be even better to be able to add the page "full-blown" . I see that I can add it into its own section, but then there would end up being "billions" of tabs across the top. Being able to just add it to the side listing would be even better.

    For instance: If I go to a seminar, and in that seminar they have a Powerpoint display, I can, assuming I have the file, link to it. But what if I didn't want all 307 slides, but rather just the one or two? Could I then link to or insert just the one or two slides?

    I am assuming as well, that I can insert Word or Excel files; if it's a web page, would I first save it as an archive and then insert that in order to get all the graphics etc. included?

    And also, I am assuming that, aside from "Undo", what I put into OneNote is "auto-saved", so I cannot close the file and re-open it to my previous version of the file?

    Chuck,

    What I like when doing this is that OneNote becomes the sole source for your info, as you don't really need the original file (you can simply delete it). Not sure what Office version you are using, on OneNote 2010 all you need to do select the Insert tab, choose Attach file and pick the file you want. After doing this, you can even right click the resulting icon and choose Insert Printout and all the pages of your document will be added to the page you are working on. If you do this, you will have a copy of each page of the document or each slide, etc, into a single page of your OneNote notebook, so no million tabs as you described.

    Of course, when you want just a few of many slides, a simple suggestion would be to delete all the slides you're not interested in and attach or link just to the resulting file.

    I have done this mostly with Word, Powerpoint and Zip files, but OneNote lets you attach pretty much the files you want.

    While Undo is indeed the option to remove something you have done, you can also select and remove anything else you add to a OneNote page. In a quick test , after Insert a word doc printout, all I needed to remove the 34 printout pages was to click Shift + End to select them all and press Delete, so no big effort to remove that either.

    That'll do it. Thanks Rui!

    Chuck,

    If you want the whole of a document inserted, then I'm with Rul on the Insert Printout one - that's good.

    If you're looking for just selected slides or cells, then the other option to bear in mind is the OneNote Printer Driver. If you choose that in the print dialog from any application and 'print' it (once you've chosen whether to print the whole thing or just the selected slides/cells/pages) then you can choose which page of which NoteBook you want to 'print' it to.
