This appendix described how to integrate Office products by sharing data files among the programs. One of the most elegant ways to copy or move data from one Office program to another is to use drag and drop. By holding your right mouse button, you can control how the drag-and-drop operation sends the data from one document to another.
Word and PowerPoint share data files easily as long as you use the proper heading styles. Presenters often use Word documents as a basis for a PowerPoint presentation, and you will appreciate the automation Office provides. After you convert your Word document to a PowerPoint presentation, you can adjust the presentation's format and add slides if you want.
When importing Access data into Word, you must be selective. Databases are often huge, and you usually want to import only a small part of the database into your Word document. Make sure to indicate to Word what data from what table you want to import so that you get only the data you need.
