Hi, what is the exact error code you receive? If you can provide the exact error code or message, will narrow down troubleshoot. To get around the problem, try starting Excel in safe mode. The command is "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\EXCEL.EXE /s".
To run the command:
1. Copy the above command without inverted commas.
2. Click Start and paste by pressing "Ctrl + V" and press the Enter key.
See if this open Excel. Thereafter, exit Excel and try opening Excel again in normal mode without the "/s" switch at the end.
If still having issue, suspect some of the system files may be corrupted. Run Office setup and hit Repair when prompted.

To automatically update the table in the presentation when changes are made to the source data in Excel, click Paste link. Both of these options also preserve the Excel formatting, even when the formatting features that are used are not supported in PowerPoint.

Something happened to your autosave add-in. You don't specify Office version, so I must be vague: you have to find an "Add-ins" option in the Excel menu, and disable the Autosave Add-in. If you want the autosave function, you'll have to reinstall Office.
Highlight and copy the text in the telephone directory PDF, paste it into excel and use the excel text to columns tool to justify the mess of text into the appropriate columns.
id say the delimited by spaces option would be the go with this one, though PDFS often have issues when trying this method.
You may need to pre clean the pasted data before putting it into excel with notepad using find and relace to remove double spaces and wierd charcaters.
Well the best info i can give you is to use the directional keys or the tab button to select the image. (or you can cheat by using ctrl-a..that is the keystroke for select all)
After you have selected the image (you can tell it has been selected when there are little boxes that appear at the corners of the image) You can then hit ctrl-c to copy. Open or switch to the file you want to copy the image to then hit ctrl-v which is the keystroke for paste.
Good luck let me know if this helps by rating my response!!!
