Working with Objects

The preceding sections focused on sharing data values as text between applications. As we saw, a group of cell entries in an Excel workbook can provide the task names and durations in a Microsoft Project document. Or, if you paste Excel data as text into Project's Resource Sheet view, each cell will be placed in a separate field in the table, as you saw in Figure 20.10.

An object, on the other hand, is a representation of data (usually a group of data or a special format for data) that is formatted by another application. The most frequent use of objects is to show graphic data (for example, Excel charts, artwork, PowerPoint slides, or special displays such as the Network Diagram or the Gantt Chart from Microsoft Project) in an application that doesn't normally generate similar formats. You can also paste media formats such as sound files or video clips.
