When you embed a Word document in PowerPoint 2000, you may link directly to the Word file from PowerPoint. Any changes you make to the source file will also appear in PowerPoint with this option. If your Word document contains several pages, only the topmost page will appear in PowerPoint. Since an embedded document may stretch beyond PowerPoint's margins, it helps to adjust the document so it fits properly. You can also edit the contents of the embedded document if you need to.
