officeIf you work with Microsoft Office you know pretty well that its tools (Word, PowerPoint, Excel…) have some weak-points. In fact, sometimes they miss some useful options which could make your life easier when it comes to creating  documents. But, are you sure that that option is missing or it is you who don’t manage to find it? For example, how many times have you wished to attach a file to your Word and Excel documents? Well, believe it or not, but such feature does exist in Office. The only issue is that it is  “buried” among hundreds of options available!

  1. Open Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel.
  2. Click the Insert tab, located on the upper-left side of the window.
  3. Click Object.
  4. A dialog window will appear on the screen.
  5. Click the Create from File tab.
  6. Browse and select the file you want to attach and embed to your document.
  7. Choose one of these two option:  Link to file or Display an icon.
  8. Click OK.

    I would only add that if you click on the icon, the file will be opened in the new window.

    Also have in mind that if you send this file to somebody else, the link will not work unless the file is in the exact relative position to the document as when you created it.
