I am looking for a way to display specific cell ranges from an excel spreadsheet in a word document. For example, the ranges for a pie chart and the table the chart is drawn from. 'Insert object' does not seem to have this capability. Can it be done somehow via scripting?

Thanks,
Nick D.

If you copy the cells in Excel and paste into word, they will most likely go in in cell form. The computer I'm working on does not have Excel so I can't test that.

I need to paste the charts and tables as linked objects. So that when the spreadsheet is updated, the objects in word are updated. I can insert an excel worksheet, but it picks an arbitrarily-sized window an you cannot control what parts of the spreadsheet show up in the window, or the size of the window.
