Object Linking and Embedding in Windows 2000

The Clipboard works fine when you want to take information from one document as is and place it into another, breaking the connection between the data and the source document. However, there are many situations when this isn't the ideal system for information transfer. These fall into three main categories:

  • You expect the information in the source document to change and you want the destination document to reflect those changes whenever they occur.

  • You want to be able to edit the transferred information directly in the destination document. In other words, you don't want to have to reopen the original document, make your changes, and then recopy and repaste the data into the destination document.
