Set up an OLE object to run during a presentation

Use this procedure after you insert an Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) object, such as a Microsoft Office file, in your presentation by clicking the Insert Object command.

To set up an OLE object to run during a presentation, do the following:

  1. On the slide, select the icon or link to the OLE object that you want to open.

  2. On the Insert tab, in the Links group, click Action.
    On the Insert tab, in the Links group, click Action

  3. In the Action Settings dialog box, do one of the following:

    • To click the embedded icon or link in order to open the program, click the Mouse Click tab.

    • To move the mouse pointer over the embedded icon or link in order to open the program, click the Mouse Over tab.

  4. On either tab, select Object action, and then in the list, click what you want to happen. For example, to display an Excel worksheet, click Open, but if you want to change or work on the worksheet during your presentation, click Edit.
