Why can't I format linked data from excel in powerpoint?

By valeriestiles ·
Why can't i get the excel data to look "cool" in powerpoint once i have mapped it? It works perfectly as far as reflecting what is in the master excel sheet but i'd like for it to have a more sleek look than just an ordinary excel database

#1, Excel is not a "database"...

It's a spreadsheet.

You are linking to the Excel spreadsheet so any formatting changes you would like to make would have to be made in Excel.

If you "copy" the spreadsheet & paste in in your PowerPoint presentation you would have the ability to format the static spreadsheet.
