    Excel file in active sheet (2003)

    I am trying to use an existing spreadsheet in a presentation. I need to be able to edit the spreadsheet while in the slideshow mode.
    I have tried- copy and paste, file- import Microsoft object, import a file with and without linking, All I get is a representation of the spreadsheet but am not able to manipulate data. I can use the spreadsheet while in the design mode but not in the presentation mode. Is this possible or am I spinning my wheels?

    You can do the following, but it may not be what you want:
    - Switch to Normal view.
    - Right-click the Excel worksheet object.
    - Select Action Settings... from the popup menu.
    - Activate the Mouse Click tab (if necessary).
    - Click the Object Action radio button.
    - Select an action (Edit and Open seem to do more or less the same when in presentation mode).
    - Click OK.

    Thanks Hans. That does allow editing of the Excel file. I was hoping that it would open in the slide instead of opening Excel.If that is the only way ... so be it.

    I don't think that it's possible to edit a worksheet in the slide itself while in presentation mode.
