Chapter 19. Sharing Data in Windows 98: ... > Editing a Linked or Embedded Object

Editing a Linked or Embedded Object

If you need to make some changes to a linked or embedded object, you can use the container application to launch the server application and load the object automatically. (Remember, too, that for a linked object you can always run the server application and work with the object directly.) How you do this depends on the application, but here are a few methods that work for most OLE containers:

  • Double-click the object.

  • Select the object, pull down the Edit menu, and then select either Linked ObjectType Object (for a linked object) or ObjectType Object (for an embedded object). In both cases, ObjectType is the type of object you selected (for example, Bitmap Image or Worksheet). From the cascade menu that appears, select Edit. If the server application supports visual editing, this will launch the object in place.

  • Select the object, pull down the Edit menu, and then select either the Linked ObjectType Object command (for a linked object) or the ObjectType Object command (for an embedded object). In the cascade menu that appears, select Open. For servers that support the Open verb, this will launch the object in a separate window.

  • Right-click the object, select either Linked ObjectType Object or ObjectType Object, and select either Edit or Open.
