Working with Objects

An object 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, special displays such as the Network Diagram view or the Gantt Chart view 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.

It is common to refer to the application that generates an object as the server application and the application that has the object pasted in it as the client application. The client document is also sometimes called the container document. These terms are used in the following discussion where they help clarify.
