ActiveLink - Display Live Spreadsheet Content

RR Donnelley & Sons Company
ActiveLink inserts live links from Microsoft Excel into your Microsoft PowerPoint slides.

ActiveLink for Presentations displays content from your Microsoft Excel workbook on your PowerPoint slides. Provide ActiveLink a URL to your Excel workbook and it will display a list of tables, charts, and named ranges that can be inserted into your presentation. Links are automatically refreshed when opening the PowerPoint file, or on demand.

This initial version (v1.0) has some known limitations regarding the formatting of tables and named ranges. Future versions will render with Excel styles intact.
