Microsoft Office 2010 lets you compile content from different programs into one file for your communications. Create a new PowerPoint presentation or insert a saved presentation into your Word document to help illustrate and support your data, for example. Applying a combination of text, graphics and animation with a time-saving theme template in your PowerPoint presentation can help your clients analyze your work in one convenient Word document.

Open the Microsoft Word program to display your document.

Click in the Word document where you wish to insert the PowerPoint presentation.

Click the “Insert” tab on the command ribbon.

Click the “Object” button in the “Text” group to display the scrolling pane on the Objects dialog box.

Click “Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation” or another PowerPoint object on the list to select.

Click the “OK” button to close the dialog box and embed the PowerPoint presentation in your Word document. The Word command ribbon converts to a PowerPoint ribbon.

Type your information and insert graphics or other elements with the PowerPoint commands.

Click outside the PowerPoint box to work in Word. The PowerPoint command ribbon converts to a Word command ribbon.

Save this Word document.


To insert a saved PowerPoint presentation, click the “Create from File” tab in the Objects dialog box. Click the “Browse” button to open the Browse dialog box with the file locations. Navigate to your saved PowerPoint file, click the file, and then click the “Insert” button to close the Browse dialog box. Click the “OK” button to close the Objects dialog box and to insert your saved PowerPoint presentation in the Word document.

To delete the PowerPoint presentation from your Word document, click in the PowerPoint box, and then press the “Delete” key on your keyboard.
