When I double-click a linked object or embedded object, a "cannot edit" message occurs.
I want the object rather than an icon to appear in my document.

- On the Edit menu, point to Linked object name Object for a linked object (for example, Linked Worksheet Object) or object name Object for an embedded object (for example, Worksheet Object, and then click Convert.

In my document, large linked or embedded objects are cropped.
I can't open an Excel object from Word.

After I save my Excel worksheet in Word, I can't open it in Excel.
In Microsoft Word, you can import a Microsoft Excel worksheet or range by opening the workbook it's stored in. However, in Word you can't save the worksheet in Excel format. If you save the worksheet in Word format, Excel can no longer read the worksheet (or the workbook that contains the worksheet).
To edit and save changes to an Excel worksheet, don't save it in Word. Instead, open the worksheet in Excel, and then edit it and save your changes. Then, you can open the worksheet again in Word.
I can't find the Select method check box.
The Select method check box has been replaced. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the General tab. Select or clear the Confirm conversion at Open check box. When you select the check box, the Confirm Data Source dialog box opens when you open a data source.
