Import Tables in PowerPoint

How to Import Tables in PowerPoint

If you have a table that you've already created in another program, like Word, you can just import it into PowerPoint instead of recreating it.

Import a Table

  1. Click the Insert tab.
  2. Expand the Text group.
  3. Select Object.
    Import Tables
  4. Select the Create from file radio button.
  5. Click the Browse button.
    Import Tables
  6. Select the file with the table you want to import.
  7. Click OK.
    Import Tables
  8. (Optional) Select the Link check box.

    If you link the table, it will automatically update in PowerPoint if a change is made to it in the other program.

  9. Click OK.
    Import Tables

The table is imported to the slide and can be moved and resized just like any other PowerPoint object.
