An attorney preparing a memo, may find it helpful to include data from spreadsheets tracking more complex numbers. Setting this up is quite easy. If you select & copy a cell with a SUM or other formula in Excel, it's possible to paste the active value into a Word document. In Word 2016, just right click and choose the option to 'Link & Merge Formatting'. A gray field will be added to your Word document ( directly in a Table cell if you like). With the 2016 versions of Word and Excel, any edits in the spreadsheet will show up immediately in the Word document.
