Hold tight to that Excel formatting — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
You need to make two decisions: formatting and linkage. If you spend a great deal of time formatting your data or chart in Excel, you may want to keep that look as it goes into your document. Also, if you’d like to update the table or chart each time you update the original Excel file, choose one of the options that links it to the source file. These will have a little chain link on the paste format icon. Make these choices in the Paste Options box that appears just after you do the paste operation.
