Clicking the Browse button on the Create From File page opens the Browse dialog box,
from which you can browse to the folder containing the file you want to link to. After
you locate the file, double-clicking it closes the Browse dialog box and adds the file’s
name and path to the File Name box of the Object dialog box. To create a link to the
file, select the Link To File check box, and click OK. When you do, the file appears in
your workbook near the active cell.
If you want to link a file to your workbook but don’t want the file image to take up much
space on the screen, you can also select the Display As Icon check box. After you select
the file and click OK, the file will be represented by the same icon used to represent it in
Windows. Double-clicking the icon displays the file.
