How to Embed a Word Document in Excel
Embedding a Word document in Excel allows you to insert a Word document into an Excel workbook as an object, so you can view and edit the document within Excel. This can be helpful if you want to include a Word document in a spreadsheet or presentation, or if you want to view and edit the document without having to switch between applications.

To embed a Word document in Excel, follow these steps:

Open the Excel workbook in which you want to embed the Word document.

Navigate to the sheet where you want to insert the Word document.

Select the cell where you want to insert the document.

On the Insert tab, click the Object button in the Text group.

In the Object dialog box, select the Create from File tab.

Click the Browse button and navigate to the location of the Word document that you want to embed.

Select the Word document and click the Insert button.

Click the OK button to close the Object dialog box.

The Word document will now be embedded in the Excel workbook as an object. You can double-click the object to open and edit the document within Excel. You can also right-click the object and select Edit to open the document in Word for editing.

Note that when you embed a Word document in Excel, the document becomes part of the Excel workbook and is saved with the workbook. If you make any changes to the document, those changes will be reflected in the embedded object within Excel. However, if you want to edit the original Word document, you will need to open it in Word separately.

In summary, embedding a Word document in Excel allows you to insert a Word document into an Excel workbook as an object, so you can view and edit the document within Excel. To do this, select the cell where you want to insert the document, click the Object button on the Insert tab, and select the Word document in the Object dialog box. The Word document will be embedded in the Excel workbook as an object, which you can double-click to open and edit within Excel.
