Understanding Linking

When you link data from an application to your document, the linked object maintains a reference or pointer back to the originating file. Then, when the original file changes, the modifications also appear in your document.

For example; you copy data from a spreadsheet file containing your yearly budget into a word processing document and link the data to its source spreadsheet. Any new data you add to the spreadsheet file at the end of the first quarter will show up in your word processing document. Likewise, anyone else who linked the spreadsheet data to their own documents will also receive the updates to the spreadsheet.
