Further investigation revealed one workstation with Office XP still
operational. Both versions seem to behave the same way-- the link can be
edited in design mode of PowerPoint but not in slideshow mode! Looks like I
was chasing that non existent solution after all.

This may all stem from my my confusion over how I think it should react and
the way PowerPoint is designed to respond . I have tried at least 6 different
methods of creationg the "linked data".
What I just found furthers my confusion. The "link", when clicked on in
PowerPoints design mode, opens the file in Excel and does allow editing. This
edit is then displayed in the PoewerPoint slide when the Excel edit session
What my co-worker and I expected is that we could edit the linked data from
the slideshow screen. This does NOT happen-- Click, Ctrl Click, Alt Click,
Shift Click all either advance a slide, back up a slide, or have no effect.
IS this the behaviour I should expect or is there a way, short of a
hyperlink, that will allow me to edit the linked file from the slideshow
mode? Or am I chasing a solution that does not exist?
Thanks for your response. Clarification appreciated.
This issue was presented to me as a difference in behaviour between Office
2002 and our new Office 2007. Unfortunately I no longer have an '02 version
to test against.

A coworker asked for some help on this one-- once excel data copied into
POwerPoint the data within the powerpoint cannot be edited. I tried my old
friend Paste special>as link and found that I can not edit the excel data
either. Has 2007 lost this capability? or am I just missing something
Thanks for your pointers
What happens when you try to edit the data?
As a matter of fact, how are you trying to access the data?
