    Cannot Insert Excel Worksheet From File into PowerPoint

    Using Office 2010 when I insert an Excel worksheet from file into PowerPoint, the worksheet will appear but when I double click on it I get the following error message: “The server application, source file, or item can't be found, or returned an unknown error. You may need to reinstall the server application”.

    Also I can insert a blank worksheet, but when I double click on it the screen goes a little crazy for a second or two – like it is refreshing or something?

    Any ideas on what to do?

    Thanks!!

    Hi,
    have you try to copy the file in on other directory and give it another name?

    Hello,

    I have tried this, but it did not make any difference. Ordinarily I would re-install Office 2010, but the disks were lost during a recent move. The good news is that we just bought Office 2013 for $20 - the bad news is I now have to upgrade to Windows 7 or 8!

    Thanks for the reply!

    OK,

    but if you want try again, you can link the excel file on your slide. Maybe in this way could be work.

    Have a nice day!

    2. Just copy the excel file and click Paste Special and paste as a file or a link
    3. In powerpoint go to Insert - Click Object - Create from file - pick ur excel file and attach it.
