    I have embedded a Word document into my Excel workbook. It is multiple pages long. I had no issues with it on the day that I inserted it and typed it, however now, when I went back to add something in, the document jumps to the top page after EVERY edit. For example, I type a word in and a few seconds later the document jumps to the top of the first page. I insert a single letter - it does the same. It is after every single edit, no matter what that may be.

    This is very frustrating having to constantly scroll back down the page every time I enter something new or change something I had.

    Anyone else experience this or know the cause/solution?

    Thank you.

    Until someone responds with a direct solution to your problem, you may find this helpful. Scrolling down the page of a long document is a pain, but if you're always wanting to go all the way to the end (and it sounds like you are), press Ctrl-End.

    Home key puts you at the beginning of the line the cursor is on.
    End key puts you at the end of the line the cursor is on.
    Ctrl-Home puts you at the beginning of the document.
    Ctrl-End puts you at the end of the document.​

    MAYBE it has something to do with whether you have your Excel calculations option set to Automatic or to Manual. Try setting it to Manual and see if that works.
