Chapter 12. Sharing Data Between Applications > Creating Document Shortcuts

Creating Document Shortcuts

Document shortcuts enable you to quickly navigate to a particular location in a document. You can, for example, create a document shortcut on the desktop to a cell in an Excel worksheet so that you can open Excel and the target worksheet from the shortcut, and the cell will be selected. You can create a shortcut to a location or selection in any OLE 2.0- compliant application. You can keep these shortcuts on the desktop, or you can place them in a folder on the desktop if you don't want to clutter up your desktop with shortcuts. Using folders to store your document shortcuts also can help you organize them.

You might use document shortcuts to save time, for example, if you're spending a lot of time navigating from one location to another in a particular document. To reduce navigation, you can create document shortcuts to key locations in the document. You can then collect all the shortcuts for a document into a folder so that it becomes a computerized table of contents that streamlines navigation.
