Understanding the Data-Sharing Capabilities of Windows 98

Windows 98 enables you to share date in three ways. At the simplest level, you can transfer data from one application to another by using the Clipboard to copy and paste. When you exchange data with this method, no link is established between the source and destination documents.

The second way to share data between applications is to establish a link between the source and destination applications. Windows 98 and many Windows applications support object linking and embedding (OLE), a technology that lets you use data from a source or server application in one or more other destination or client applications. If you link data and then update the source data, the destination data is automatically updated also. For example, you can have a live data feed of stock prices continually update an Excel worksheet.
