After reviewing the letter with the embedded pie chart, Caitlin decides that the pie
chart would be more impressive if it were rotated so that the pie slice showing the per-
centage of total referrals to Lifestyles appeared in front. Because you embedded the chart,
you can use Excel chart commands from within the Word document to modify the chart.
Modifying an Embedded Object
When you edit an embedded object within the destination program, the changes affect
only the embedded object; the original object in the source program remains unchanged.
When you double-click an embedded object, the destination program’s menu bar and
commands change to the menu bar and commands of the embedded object’s source pro-
gram, which you use to modify the embedded object.
Now that you have embedded the pie chart in Word, you can rotate the chart so that
the Lifestyles pie wedge appears in front.
