The Ultimate Guide to
OneNote

OneNote allows you to insert all kinds of information into notebooks, including other Office files. Adding an Excel spreadsheet to your OneNote page is a great way to create a copy of your Excel data to view in OneNote, so you don’t have to switch back and forth between applications.

There are a few different ways to embed your spreadsheet shown in the video above. Begin from the Insert tab in OneNote:

  1. To insert a blank spreadsheet, select Table -> New Excel Spreadsheet or Spreadsheet -> New Excel Spreadsheet
  2. To insert an existing spreadsheet, select Spreadsheet -> Existing Excel Spreadsheet.

Note  This process is best done when you don’t have further changes to make to your Excel spreadsheet. Changes made in OneNote won’t appear in the original Excel file, and vice versa–changes made in the Excel file won’t appear on the OneNote page.
