    Linking Excel to Powerpoint (Office 2000)

    Has anyone ever successfully linked an excel workbook to a powerpoint slide? I have successfully linked my powerpoint slide to my excel spreadsheet but I can't find out how to get it to go back. I know I can simply exit or minimize excel but I was trying to be slick about my presentation.

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    You can create a hyperlink to a specific slide in a presentation, for example


    will link to the 5th slide in MyPresentation.

    In my experience, it doesn't work very well, though - it opens a read-only copy of the presentation, and you may end up with many instances of the same presentation. I'd just exit or minimize Excel - less fuss, no problems.
