In Depth Information
A chart pasted from Excel into an email message looks exactly the same as the original.
Can you edit text or other data after pasting it into a message? Generally speaking, yes. Pasted text
and tables can be edited just as if you had typed them directly into the message. Other pasted
items, such as charts, will be more or less editable depending on the program they came from.
Right-click such a pasted object to view a context menu that will contain any available editing
commands. However, it is almost always preferable to perform necessary editing in the parent
application before copying to the message.
Note that copy and paste is a two-way street — you can copy data from Outlook and paste it into
other programs as well.
Not Just Office Programs
You are not limited to pasting data into messages from only Microsoft Office programs. Essentially
any Windows application has the ability to copy data to the Clipboard from where you can paste
it into a message.
