I think this shipped with Office 2003 but not later versions.

Try downloading owc11.exe and running it. See if that installs the .ocx file you need. NOTE If this is not just personal use you should read the license if you do not have a 2003 license for Office.

Hi JSRWilson,

Thanks for your reply, but I did not understand very well.

This means that I can not insert an Excel spreadsheet as a control in a slide in Powerpoint version 2010, or have another way to do it?

If you mean aSpreadsheet 11 Object as in your screen shot then it will work in 2010 if you download the tools which were originally included with Office 2003. (At least it did here)

The site i linked to has the license details
