I have used Excel Worksheets embeded in Word documents for years. With Word 2016, I am getting a weird view of the spreadsheet and am unable to work within the spreadsheet as I have in the past. I have attached screenshots to illustrate my issue.

HI ergenbgr,
Obviously that is not the expected behavior. Can you tell me more? Are you using O365? How did you do the insert? Have you checked for updates and/or done a repair?

I've tried experimenting with Word to see if I could reproduce anything that looked like the screen shots you attached and could not do so. I am able to easily insert a table or excel spread sheet into the Word doc.

I'm not sure how you have been doing it up till now, but to insert a spread sheet (and even be able to create multiple sheets in the spread sheet) use the "Insert" tab and select "Excel Spreadsheet" from the drop down under "Table". This will insert a Spread sheet into the doc. the double clicking on it will allow you to edit it. I've added the file that you uploaded, but with a spread sheet added on the second page.

Thank you both for your responses. My city office still uses Word 2007 so that is where I work most frequently. However at home I have Office 365.

Karen F.:  In Word 07 I click on INSERT\OBJECT\MicrosoftExcelSpreadsheet. Doing so embeds a spreadsheet into my Word doc. Do that in Office 365 and you get the results I showed in my screenshots.

Michael M: The method you demonstrated works. I was not aware that Microsoft changed the manner in which you embed spreadsheets.

Thank you for your assistance. My problem is resolved and I will award the points.
