Creating Links

To create a link from a source document to the document you have open:

  1. Start the application that created the source file.

  2. Open the source file.

  3. Select the data you want to copy. Choose Edit, Copy.

  4. Switch to the document to which you want to add the linked data.

  5. Position your cursor (insertion point) where you want to place the data or item.

  6. Choose Edit, Paste Special. The Paste Special dialog box appears (see Figure 7.2).

    Figure 7.2. The Paste Special dialog box is where you have the additional option of displaying your link as an icon.

  7. Select Paste Link.

  8. Choose a display format in the As box.

  9. If you'd rather see an icon in your document instead of the linked data, select Display as Icon. Figure 7.3 shows an example of an icon in a document. If you don't choose Display as Icon, the linked object appears in your document, similar to Figure 7.4.

    Figure 7.3. A pasted link displays as an icon. Double-click the icon to open the link.

    Figure 7.4. The linked data displays in the document.

  10. Click OK.
