Any way to embed a SharePoint list into a word document? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello - 

    Currently, I'm trying to create a Project Status Report in Word 2013.  In our PWA environment, Risks and Issues are stored in separate SharePoint lists (SharePoint 2010).  Currently, I have found that I can export that SharePoint list to Excel, and then using that data, I can copy and "paste special" as an Excel Worksheet Object.  This creates a link between the word document and the data, that updates when it is updated in the Excel sheet.  So basically, the data flow is SharePoint List -> Excel Worksheet -> Word Document. 

    The end goal of this document is to automate the status report as much as possible so that the project managers do not need to update much manually.  What is the best way to cut out the Excel step, and embed the list directly into the word document so that it updates when a new Risk/Issue is added?
