Linking Selected Data Between Applications

The copy operations described in the preceding section produce static copies in the destination document; the pasted copy of the data does not change if the source data changes. However, you can also paste a value from another application that is a linked reference to the data location in the source document. The linked reference can be updated to reflect changes in the value that is stored in the source document.

Linking Microsoft Project Data Fields to External Sources

You can paste a link to an external data source into a Microsoft Project table. The external source can be another application (such as an Excel or Word file) or another Project document. For example, an Excel workbook could serve as the source for resource names and cost rates in a Project document. You could also link the constraint date for a task to a date in another file if you wanted the task to start or finish on that date.
