    I need to put together a powerpoint presentation and I have an excel file I'd like to use as part of the presentation. Is it possible assign a macro to open excel from powerpoint, and viceversa? Going back to powerpoint wouldn't ba a big issue since it would already be open ("Application.activatemicrosoftapp xlmicrosoftpowerpoint" I think), but can I open a closed excel file from powerpoint??

    Another option (that i don't like so much) is to have excel running before I start the powerpoint presentation, but I will need to access 3 or 4 different excel files, so opening the files is better than activating them.

    Any Ideas?? (Is this the wrong forum for this question??)

    Use Insert, Hyperlink, then point to the Excel workbook you want displayed. When you close Excel, you automatically return to the PowerPoint slide containing the hyperlink.
