powerpoint and excel.
Posted on 2014-09-12
I asked an excel/PowerPoint question yesterday to a problem that I'm facing but I'm not sure if it will work for me.
Let me explain what I'm trying to accomplish....
I have a computer that will be running a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation in a loop. This presentation will show a bunch of production numbers to workers. My plan was to have management change these numbers in an excel file (daily based on performance) and link those excel changes to that PowerPoint presentation. The problem that I'm facing is whenever I want those new production numbers to show up on the PowerPoint presentation I have to close the PowerPoint and reopen it and then click OK to enable links updates since I'm pulling the numbers from excel. Is there a way to set this up so once the numbers are changed in Excel the PowerPoint automatically grabs the numbers? Or should I be using a different problem to accomplish this? Any suggestions? please & thank you.
