Cannot insert Excel in Word

When adding an Excel object in Word, it failed and getting the error something like you need to install Excel app. But I do have already installed the Excel app! Here are my steps:
Open the Word document where Excel spreadsheet has been placed.
Click and Insert option and select Object to Text section
Then, select an option Create from file and browse to Excel document that has been inserted
After that, click Ok button

I have also tried to reinstall Office 365 suite but have no effect. Anyone has any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Did this problem appear in all Word documents? Try to create a new Word document and check the result.

    Then go to Control Panel- Programs and Features, please check if there are more than one Office apps are installed in PC.

    I also suggest you to create new Windows User account and check if embedded Excel file in Word document works as expected.

    Try these methods and let me know the result.
