Editing Linked Objects

After you have created a linked object, you might want to edit and update the information in the object. At this stage, you realize the full benefit of an OLE link because you can edit the object one time, and it is updated in every document to which it is linked.

You can edit a linked object in two ways. The first is to start at the source file, using the server application to make changes to the object. The second is to start at the container file and let the link information lead you to the correct source file and server application. With the second method, you do not have to remember the name of the source file or even which server application created it. In the next sections, you learn how to edit objects using these two methods.
