Chapter 22. Exchanging Data with Other Programs

No application is an island. Sooner or later, you’re probably going to want to take your carefully crafted Excel data and insert it into a completely different program. Maybe you want to bolster a presentation slideshow with some real data or give some heft to a report. No matter what the reason, you need a flexible way to share Excel tables and charts with other software programs.

Fortunately, the modern Windows operating system was designed with exactly that idea in mind.

You can also perform the same task in reverse, incorporating objects from other applications into your worksheets.
