Link Pivot Table in Word from Excel

Hi there,
I need to copy a pivot table from Excel, past it to Word and keep the link in a way that when the Pivot table changes (Expands or shrinks as well as data inside it), the modifications are replicated in Word.

The main problem when I tried this is that the size does noy update when you make changes in Excel, for example by expanding the Pivot table.

The office version I am using 2010.

Any idea

This is what I tried yesterday but it doesn't work. After copying the pivot table in word, when you extend it in excel it sort of extends in word but only for the first 2 or 3 rows.

Actually I don't know if the instructions are complete because they're saying that "You should see a note or an icon showing you that the pivot table has been copied to the clipboard" and I just haven't!!!

So,  I just copy it as normal, and in the word option I right click and select paste, and the scroll over and use one of the linked options.

The select in the table options this checkmark.  

I haven't found that it's perfect, but I think it's as good as you get. Selection box in 2010
