If you would like to create a quick view of just a few records from Microsoft Access, you can simply copy the data from a datasheet view in Access and then paste the data into Excel. If you would like to have a static copy of a large amount of data from an Access database, you can save the data from an Access table, form or report and copy it to an Excel worksheet. These methods work well when you do not need to refresh the contents of the Excel worksheet every time there is a change in the Access data. If you would like the data in the Excel worksheet to be linked to the Access data so that every time the data in the Access database changes, the Excel data refreshes too, you might have to create an Office Connection. For example, you might store all your employees payroll data in an Access database and only include monthly summaries in an Excel worksheet.

In an analysis of multiple studies dating back to 2008, Marketwatch reported last year that almost 90% of Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets contain errors.

A popular desktop programme that is often used in conjunction with this product is MS presentation software PowerPoint. PowerPoint gives you the opportunity to create professional-looking files that contain data in many forms, including numerical and pictorial. If your presentation could benefit from being bolstered by figures than you may like to book a training course that can help you get to grips with how MS Excel documents can be shared. The process of moving data from your worksheet to a PowerPoint file is straightforward. While in PowerPoint you need to identify the area of the document that you wish to receive the MS Excel file, then you simply use the Paste Options button to import data. In addition to adding your spreadsheets to the presentation programme, you can also copy and paste tables and charts, which can help bring your presentation to life.
