Excel-to-Word Document Automation Add-In
How to Get Started
- To get started, in Excel, select the "Insert" tab on the ribbon. In the "Add-ins" section, select "Store"
- In the search box, enter "Excel-to-Word Document Automation", then select "Add"
- The add-in icon should appear in the ribbon on the "Home" tab on the right side. Select it to activate it.
Insert Sample Content
To see how it works, on the "Start" tab of the add-in in Excel, click "Insert Sample Content", then follow the simple steps there. Use the destination documents below -- these Word and PowerPoint documents are linked to the sample Excel content. You can modify inputs in the Excel workbook to see how content changes in the Word and/or PowerPoint documents after you submit/update.

Download Sample PowerPoint
The add-in contains further instructions, including how to link documents to automate Word and PowerPoint content updates (from Excel calculations, data, and charts).
Note that you cannot add new add-ins to protected Excel workbooks (in Windows). You must first add the add-in to a new or unprotected document (you only need to do this once). Then open your protected workbook, then you should be able to activate the add-in from the ribbon "Home" tab.
