Modifying Links

When you modify a linked object, it is usually updated in the destination document. However, if it doesn’t automatically update, you can update the link manually. All Office 2007 programs give you some control over the links you have established. You can convert a linked object to another object type. For example, if you linked an Excel 2007 worksheet to a PowerPoint 2007 presentation, and then later wanted to save it as a PowerPoint 97-2003 presentation, you can convert the linked Excel object to an Excel 97-2003 worksheet.
