What Is OLE?

Object Linking and Embedding, or OLE, is a way to ensure that your documents are always up-to-date. When you import or paste a graphic, chart, or other object into a presentation, the pasted piece is "dead"— that is, it never changes. In contrast, when you link an object to a presentation, the object stays "alive" When you open and edit it in its native program, PowerPoint reflects those changes in its copy of the object.

Linking or Embedding: What's the Difference?

Linking and embedding are actually two different things, although few people really understand the difference.
