Working with objects
Explanation
You can insert content from other applications into Word and maintain the ability to edit
the content in its original application so that it’s updated in the Word document. To do
this, you must use applications that support Object Linking and Embedding (OLE).
When you insert content in this way, that content is referred to as an object .
You have several options for adding content as objects. You can insert a file or part of a
file—such as an Excel worksheet—into your Word document. This file can be either
linked to the source file or embedded as a standalone object. You can also insert a new
object—such as a blank Excel worksheet—and then add your content.
Creating objects
To create a new object in a Word document:
1 In the document, place the insertion point where you want the object to appear.
2 Click the Insert tab.
3 Click Object to open the Object dialog box, shown in Exhibit 2-1.
4 In the Object type list, select the type of object you want to insert (for example,
Microsoft Excel Worksheet). The items in the list will vary based on the
software you have installed that supports OLE.
5 Click OK. An object appears in your document, displayed in the environment of
the application you’ll use to create the object. (If you insert an Excel Worksheet
object, for example, a blank worksheet will appear, along with the Excel
Ribbon.)
6 Add your content. (For example, enter your data into the worksheet.)
7 Click outside the object to return to the Word environment.
After creating an object, you can modify it in the application you used to create it. Just
double-click the object and make your changes. Then click outside the object to return
to the Word environment.
