Chapter 2. Working with Windows Programs > Linking and Updating Information

Linking and Updating Information

When you want to keep source and destination files in sync with each other, you can link the source file that created the object with the destination file that displays the object. Linking displays information stored in one document (the source file) into another (the destination file). You can edit the linked object from either file, although changes are stored in the source file. Only a representation of the object appears in the destination file; any changes made to the object are done in the source file, whether you access it by double-clicking the object in the destination file or by opening it in the source program.

Link an Object Between Programs

Click where you want to embed the object.

Click the Insert menu, and then click Object.

Click the Create From File option.

Click Browse, and then double-click the file with the object you want to link.

Select the Link check box.

Click OK.
