Object Linking and Embedding

Object Linking and Embedding
   Abbreviated OLE, pronounced "[oh-lay]." A Microsoft protocol for application-to-application exchange and communications using data objects. From a user standpoint, the main benefit to OLE is that it allows any OLE-compliant application to display information created in a different application. Data objects can be either embedded or linked. If the source data in its original form is actually stored inside the other application program's data file, the data is embedded. In this case, there are two separate copies of the data: the original data and the embedded copy. Any changes made to the original document will not be made in the compound document unless the embedded object is updated.
   If the data still exists in a separate file and a set of pointers to this data is stored in the other application program's data file, the data is linked. In this case, only one copy of the data exists; any changes made in the original document will be made automatically in the compound document.
   To determine whether an application supports OLE, check the Edit menu for commands such as Paste Link, Paste Special, and Insert Object. If these commands are present, the application supports OLE.
