How can I insert a fully functional Excel 2010 spreadhseet within a Word 2010 document?

How can I insert a fully functional Excel 2010 spreadsheet within a Word 2010 document that I can modify, edit, and add to directly while I am viewing the Word 2010 document?

I need to have actual Excel 2010 spreadsheets with data (contained in rows & columns) that I can actually add to or edit on the fly. Each of these Excel 2010 spreadsheets contained within the Word 2010 documents must be an actual separate Excel spreadsheet file that is embedded within the Word 2010 document.

I don't want to simply copy the Excel 2010 files and then paste them into the Word 2010 documents as file attachments; these Excel 2010 documents must be actual "living" Excel databases that I can modify within the Word 2010 document itself.

Please provide me with the exact steps as well as additional online documentation that explains how I can do this.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Open the Excel Worksheet, copy the section you want, then in Word, Paste Special -> Spreadsheet Object.

I keep my stuff in old format even though I use Office 2010, so ignore the 2003 reference. It all works.

Caution: do not make the spreadsheet too large or it will bog down severely. .... Thinkpads_User
