Chapter 23. Linking to Other Applications > Using Object Linking and Embedding

Using Object Linking and Embedding

OLE, short for Object Linking and Embedding, might be more appropriately named Object Linking or Embedding. The simplest explanation for what can be done with the concept of OLE is right in the Word Help file written by Microsoft:

"You can link or embed all or part of an existing file created in an Office application or in any other application that supports linking and embedding. You can also create a new object and then link or embed it. If the file you want to use was created in an application that does not support linking and embedding, you can still copy and paste information from the file, but you may not be able to link or embed from it."
