Chapter 19. Integrating with Office XP > Linking Office Objects

Linking Office Objects

By now, you've probably used the Clipboard to cut or copy content between and within Office applications. The Clipboard is one of the most significant tools that Windows offers, and Office makes it even more powerful by giving you the capability to cut, copy, and paste several objects as a group or one at a time.

For all that power and convenience, however, the pasting process is limited. For example, after you've pasted an Excel chart into your PowerPoint slide, any changes made to the Excel chart or to the data that supports it are no longer reflected in the pasted copy of the chart in PowerPoint. Simple pasting establishes no connection between the copied chart and its source. To establish such a connection, you must link the source and the target so that the target can be updated when opened to reflect changes in the source.
