Using Objects in Excel

Sharing data between applications is called Object Linking and Embedding, more commonly known as OLE. This may sound complicated but it isn't. It means there's an object in a document in one Windows application that is linked to or embedded from a document in another Windows application. Many Windows applications let you link and embed information in any of these applications. For example, you can copy a Microsoft Excel chart and put it into a Microsoft Word document.

If the object is linked, it appears in your Office document but it is stored outside of your document. Your document holds the link, which is like an address, and when you want to view or print your document, Excel reads the address, fetches the object, and provides it. If the original object is changed, the next time you link to it, you see the changes.
