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 letting you cut, copy, and paste several objects as a group or one at a time.

Despite all that power and convenience, the pasting process is limited. For example, after you paste an Excel chart into your PowerPoint slide, the pasted chart doesn't reflect any changes you make to the original Excel chart or its data. 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 kept in sync with the source.
