1. In Excel, select an area and then choose Copy from the Edit menu.

2. In Word, choose Paste from the Edit menu.

3. Click on the Paste Options smart tag button (an example is shown below) and choose either Keep Source Formatting and Link to Excel or Match Destination Table Style and Link to Excel.
