Part VIII: Using Word with Office and Ne... > Using Word with Office Applications

Chapter 36. Using Word with Office Applications

  • Copying and pasting data between applications

    Use the Copy and Paste commands to transfer static copies of information from one application to another.

  • Embedding data into a Word document

    Embed data into a Word document when you want the data to become part of the Word file, independent of the source document. You can edit the embedded object from within Word.

  • Linking data with Word documents

    Link data from one application to another when you want the information in the destination document to automatically update when the source document changes.

  • Using the Microsoft Binder

    Use the Office Binder to bring together documents from different Office 97 applications. Binder makes it easy to collate, edit, and print a project made up of different documents.

One of the unique advantages of Windows applications is their capability to exchange and link information easily with other Windows applications. With Word 97, you also can import or link to files from many DOS applications, such as Lotus 1-2-3, AutoCAD, or dBASE. Through the use of Microsoft Query, you even can insert or link your Word documents to data found in an SQL server or mainframe. Figure 36.1 shows a letter with an embedded Microsoft Excel chart.
