Chapter 12. Sharing Data Between Applications > Creating Compound Documents

Creating Compound Documents

In this section you will learn how to create compound documents. Compound documents are documents you create using multiple types of data pulled in from various applications. The technology used to create compound documents is Microsoft's OLE.

The basic building blocks of a compound document are objects. Objects are embedded into the container or client application, which contains one or more embedded objects. For example, you can embed a graphics object from a graphics application and a data table from an Excel worksheet into a Word document, which acts as the container for the objects. An application that supplies an object is referred to as a server application. The server application provides OLE services to the client application.
