Hyperlink PowerPoint Presentation to Word

Client is using XP

He creates a presentation, saves it, then File | Send to | Microsoft Word.
He selects to Paste Link.

He gets the slides and comments in Word. However, they do not update when
the presentation is changed and saved. I tried both changing Comments
(which he wants to see updated) and the slides themselves. I have closed
the original Word document and reopened it after being sure the "Update
automatic links on Open" is checked in Tools | Options | General.

Are we doing this incorrectly or does Word NOT update when the presentation
changes?

Everything you are asking for or wanting to do you can already do in
PowerPoint, so I do not know why you would want to do this extra step. If
you do not have PowerPoint, you can download a viewer.

But to do what you are seeking, in Word, go to Insert, then Object…, then
the Create from File tab, then check Link to file check box, click the
Browse… button to find the PowerPoint file.

I do not understand the comment " Everything you are asking for or wanting

PowerPoint, so I do not know why you would want to do this extra step."

The user wants his presentation and his notes, linked so they update, in
Word. I'm looking for any way that will accomplish what he wants. I tried
the process you detailed below and I do get the presentation and it updates,
but I do not get the Notes at all.
