Chapter 6. Office in Overdrive: Sharing ... > Inserting an Object from Another App...

Inserting an Object from Another Application

Using the Office or Windows Clipboard to copy data from one application to another is simple, but both methods suffer from three major problems. First, if the data gets changed in the original application, the document containing the copy will become out of date. This has two consequences:

  • If you know that the data needs to be updated, you have to repeat the whole copy-and-paste procedure to get the latest version of the data.

  • If you don’t know that the data needs to be updated (for example, if someone else changes the original data without telling you), you’ll be stuck with an old version of the info.
