Link Excel Sheet to an Existing PowerPoint Presentation

Do you think there is another way to link the new data source (for client 2) into the original PowerPoint presentation template created (for client 1) besides choosing ‘edit data’ and using the data linked (from client 1) to revise for client 2?

How can I link an excel sheet to an existing PowerPoint presentation, and will the charts change automatically?
