I would like to paste a entire Word doc (not the text) into an Excel cell. Can someone tell me how to do this? Cut/Paste doesn't work.

In Excel, click on the "Insert" tab, look in the Text bar for "Object", click on it. In the new window that opened up click on the "Create from File" tab. Browse to the Word document you want to insert.

You also have the option to just link to the file or show it as an icon.

Thanks! This is what I have been able to find out as well, the problem being that the word document doesn't get embedded into the cell so it will not remain associated with the row and therefore if the cells are sorted the document lives on a different layer and will be left "behind". Also this does not allow me to have someone open the document if they had the spreadsheet with no access to where I have stored the files. But I've decided to create a SharePoint site storing the documents there and referencing those documents as links in the cells. Which means that this data will be limited to a very small group rather than what I was hoping.
I appreciate your help and response.

Have you considered that a =HYPERLINK() function might do what you need?
