Use Excel within Word Document

Although tables are readily available in Word, I want to use Excel capabilities within a Word document. The Word .doc file will be more polished and easier to format. How can I do this?

Open the Word document

Place the cursor where you want to insert the Excel spreadsheet

Click Insert tab / Tables group
Select Tables

Go down to the bottom of the dialog box
Click on Excel spreadsheet

The Excel spreadsheet will open

When you are finished with the spreadsheet (do not save) return to Word, simply click outside of the spreadsheet.

To edit the spreadsheet Double-click the spreadsheet and it will open
Edit as needed (do not save) return to Word, simply click outside of the spreadsheet.
