Create OLE Objects

Use the Insert Graphic Object dialog to insert an OLE (Object linking and embedding) object, which means "link and embed external files from other applications". Which files you can embed using OLE depends upon the program source in which the foreign file was created. As a general rule, all modern Windows programs (e.g. Excel files) can be embedded using the OLE data exchange component. The advantage of inserting OLE-objects is that embedded files can be subsequently modified in the original program.
