Sharing a PowerPoint Presentation or an Excel spreadsheet on a webpage or blog is now simple to do thanks to Office Web Apps. With a free Office.Live.com account teachers or speakers can embed a PowerPoint or excel file on their webpage and teams can share schedules or calculators easily by embedding the file right on a shared website.

- Create the presentation you want to share like normal.
- Upload it to Office.Live.com in your public folder
- Copy the Embed code from the “More” drop down as shown below.
- Paste that code into the HTML section of your web page or blogging software.
You can see a sample of what an embedded PowerPoint file looks like below and find more detailed instructions on embedding a PowerPoint on a blog or detailed instructions on embedding an Excel file on your web page.
How to Embed Office Web Apps in WordPress:
You can’t embed an Office Web App on a WordPress.com blog, but you can embed it in WordPress by adding the <code> embed info </code> in the HTML editor of a post.
When it comes to embedding Excel files, you can choose to embed the whole file, a sheet or just a graph giving you a good deal of control. Another cool thing is that, unlike uploading a copy for your reader to download, the embedded version will stay up to date with any changes you make.
