    Word vs PowerPoint (XP)

    Hi there
    I have a PPT presentation linking to a Word document, let's say on slide 5. On the second page of the Word document I need to link back to slide 5 of the PPT presentation. Is this possible? I was thinking of creating another PPT presentation that starts on slide 5 so that I can link the Word doc to this one.
    Thanks! <img src=/S/bubbles.gif border=0 alt=bubbles width=31 height=17>

    Hi Rhonda,

    You can insert a PowerPoint slide into a Word document as a linked object and you can insert a hyperlink to a PowerPoint slide.

    To insert a PowerPoint slide into a Word document as a linked object:
    1. Switch to outline view in PowerPoint
    2. Copy the slide
    3. Go to the insertion point in your Word document
    4. Use Edit|Paste Special, choose the 'paste link' and 'Microsoft powerPoint Slide Object' options.

    To insert a hyperlink to a PowerPoint slide into a Word document:
    1. Copy the slide
    2. Go to the insertion point in your Word document
    3. Use Edit|Paste Special|Paste as Hyperlink.

    Cheers
    Cheers,

    If you only wanted to return to the same place in powerpoint then just using Alt-Tab or exiting Word should do the same thing.

    To create a hyperlink in Word that takes you to a specific slide in powerpoint you create the hyperlink to the ppt file as per usual and add #5 at the end of the address (where 5 is the slide number you wanted to jump to).
