Chapter 24. Integrating Excel with Other... > Managing Objects and Links

Managing Objects and Links

Once you have embedded an object in a workbook, you may need to make changes to the object. You can change the position and appearance of the object in the Excel workbook or work with the data from the server application

Formatting and Positioning Objects

If you have placed an object in Excel, you have several options for changing the appearance, location, and size of the object. It is important to understand, however, that Excel does not have complete control over the appearance of the object. When you place an object, the server application is responsible for defining the general appearance of the object. For example, a Word object looks like a Word document and a PowerPoint object looks like a PowerPoint slide. If you want to change the appearance of some internal aspect of the object, such as its font, color, or the actual contents of the object, you must first activate the server application. You'll learn to activate an object in the section, "Activating an Embedded Object."
