Chapter 13. Sharing Data > Copying Data from Other Programs

Copying Data from Other Programs

WordPerfect can do many things, but it can't do everything. You will occasionally have to switch to another application for a project. You can have the best of both worlds because you can pull that information into a WordPerfect document. You can do a simple copy and paste, or you can set up a link so that if the information is updated, the changes are automatically reflected in the document. Either way, it's simple to set up in WordPerfect.

Using the same techniques you learned in the “Moving and Copying Text” section in Chapter 4, “Revising Documents,” you can copy information from another program and paste it into WordPerfect. The Windows Clipboard acts as a go-between, temporarily holding the cut or copied information until you can paste it in a WordPerfect document.
