Thumbs up Answer: how do i insert a clickable icon excel file into word

Sure, I can help you with that! Here are the steps to insert a clickable icon for an Excel file into a Word document:
  1. Open the Word document where you want to insert the icon.
  2. Click on the "Insert" tab in the ribbon at the top of the screen.
  3. Click on the "Object" button in the "Text" section of the ribbon.
  4. In the "Object" dialog box, select the "Create from File" tab.
  5. Click on the "Browse" button and navigate to the Excel file you want to insert.
  6. Select the file and click on the "Insert" button.
  7. Check the box next to "Link to File" if you want the icon to be clickable and linked to the original Excel file.
  8. Click on the "OK" button to insert the icon into your Word document.

Now you should see the icon in your Word document. If you checked the "Link to File" box, you can click on the icon to open the original Excel file. If you make any changes to the Excel file, they will be reflected in the Word document when you update the link. To update the link, right-click on the icon and select "Update Link" from the context menu.

Select the menu item Insert Object. Click the tab Create from File. Browse
to and select the Excel file you want. Check the box for "Display as icon".
(If you want the file itself embedded in the Word document instead of just a
link, leave the "Link to file" box unchecked.). You probably should click
the Change Icon button and shorten the caption to just the file name, so it
isn't truncated. Click OK.

Double-clicking the icon will launch the file in a separate Excel window.

We have done the instructions below. But when we click on the link in the
word document, it moves the link around and doesn't open. Is there something
we are doing wrong?

Jay said to _double_-click. If that doesn't work, did you try Ctrl-
click on the link? There's a setting somewhere in the options for
changing how links work.

Before you can insert a clickable icon into an Excel File, you must among us first create a link to the icon file. To do this, navigate to the folder containing the icon file framed game and click the “Browse” button. In the “Choose File” window that appears, click the “Browse” button and locate your icon file. Once you have found it, click on its name to select it and then click OK.
