Linking a sheet's content into a Word document

Hi.  I have a Word document and an Excel document.  Some of the
content of the Word document merely duplicates the content of the
Excel document.  What I would like to do is to set up the Word
document so that it automatically retrieves the text from the Excel
document.  Similar to doing a '=D5' in an Excel spreadsheet, so that
it just harvests the contents of a particular cell (in this case, D5)
and transplants it to another place.

Is there a way to implant text from the Excel spreadsheet (which is in
another file) into the Word document, so that it automatically opens
the Excel spreadsheet in the background and harvests the correct
text?  Or is there a way to insert the Excel sheet into my Word

I have tried Insert menu->Object, but Word simply tries to squish the
whole sheet down onto a single page, which makes it unprintable and
unusable.  And it still doesn't allow me to extract the content of
individual cells within the Word text.

Thanks in advance,

Sorry that I neglected to mention... my document(s) may be used by
people using oldish versions of Office, so I'd prefer a solution that
doesn't rely on using the latest version.  Thanks,

I have a form with a subform in it.

Formula involving different sheets
Hi Using Excel 2003. In sheet 1, cell A1: =200/1200 In sheet 2, cell B2: =300/1200 In sheet 3 in a cell, I want to do =200/1200 + 300/1200 by cell reference. How do I do so? Thanks. Your formula would be: =sheet1!a1+sheet2!b2 The best way to create these formulae is to get Excel to do it. 1: Type = into your cell 2: Navigate to your sheet1!a1 cell. You will notice in the formula bar that Excel is adding its address to your formula 3: Type + 4: Navigate to your sheet2!b2 cell. 5: Hit enter Once you learn this, you will never type a cell address again.
