Chapter 12. Sharing Workbook Data > Linking and Embedding Files

Linking and Embedding Files

Information created using other Office programs can be shared among them. This means that data created in an Excel workbook, can be included in a Word document without being retyped. This makes projects such as annual or departmental reports simple to create. Information can be either linked or embedded. Data that is linked has the advantage of always being accurate because it is automatically updated when the linked document is modified.

Create a Link to Another File

Open the source file and any files containing information you want to link.

Select the information in the source file, and then click the Copy button on the Standard toolbar.

Click the insertion point in the file containing the link.

Click the Edit menu, and then click Paste Special.

Click Paste Link.
