Lesson 22. Sharing Data with Office Appl... > Linking and Embedding Objects

Linking and Embedding Objects

You can use Windows OLE to share data between Office applications. Object Linking and Embedding is a feature that most Windows applications support. OLE enables you to share data between a source application and a destination application, ensuring that all documents are updated automatically and in a timely fashion. For example, you can link an Excel worksheet to a mail message to ensure that the data you send with the message is up-to-date and accurate. You can also embed objects into mail messages in Outlook.

One of the biggest advantages of using OLE is that you can edit an object by double-clicking it. When you do, the file is updated in both the source and the destination applications with the changes you've made. You can use existing files or create new files for both linking and embedding.
