Embedding and Linking an Object

PP07S-2.2.1, PP07S-2.3.2

You can embed or link objects in several ways. If you are creating a new object you want to embed or link, use the Insert Object button. If you want to embed an existing file, you can also use Insert Object and specify whether you want to also link the object. If your object is already open in its source program, you can copy the object, and in some cases, paste it onto a slide, automatically embedding it. Finally, you can use the Paste Special command to paste link a copied object—pasting and linking it at the same time.
