In your Writer document place cursor where you want the table. Click Insert > Object > OLE Object.... In the dialog that opens check the radio button "Create from File", tick the box labelled "Link to file", navigate to the spreadsheet file by clicking on the Search button, click Open, then click OK.

Size the object to suit. To access the links you will have to double-click the object after which you can Ctrl+click any of the links. Note: Export to PDF does not retain the links

Thank you for the answer, but this solves not the problem in the pdf export
