Reducing or Enlarging the Display of a Worksheet in PowerPoint
By Ryan Menezes
Microsoft PowerPoint slides can embed worksheets that access all the functions of an Excel spreadsheet. The slide doesn't have to display all of the worksheet's rows and columns. For example, if the first ten rows of a worksheet contain raw sales figures, the slide might show only the following rows, which contain the results of calculations on the data. When you open the spreadsheet for editing, you can expand or contract the sheet's cell array to enlarge or reduce the part of the sheet displayed on the slide.
Double-click the worksheet in your slide to edit it.
Hover the mouse pointer over the black square in the sheet's lower-right corner to turn the pointer into a double-headed arrow.
Click and drag to the right to show additional columns or click and drag to the left to hide columns that are currently visible.
Click and drag downward to show more rows or click and draw upward to hide rows.
Click a blank area of the slide to stop editing the worksheet.
