Lesson 1: Object Linking and Embedding
Objective # 1 Object Linking

Object linking and embedding is a technology which allows a group of linked computer programs to share date or information. It is very useful in the real world, and is utilized quite often. You may even be using OLE without even realizing it!
Objective # 2 Uses of Object Linking and Embedding
OLE is very useful for creating a compound document. It can be used to import a clip art picture from the Microsoft clip art gallery, or to create a headline using Microsoft Word Art. OLE is especially useful in a business environment. Many times it is used when preparing documents which are part of a proposal. If you are drawing up a proposal, and would like to include a graph of statistics with your document, Object Linking and Embedding, or OLE allows you to do this. You would create the graph in Microsoft Excel, and then insert the saved file in your Microsoft Word document.
Objective # 3 Compound Documents
A document containing data which is received from several different programs via Object Linking and Embedding is known as a compound document. Similar to Object Linking and Embedding, Compound Documents are found quite frequently in the office environment. This is due to the fact that compound documents are created with the help of OLE.
Objective # 4 Types of Programs
Compound documents can have image files downloaded from the internet, Excel spreadsheets, Access databases, as well as images developed in other graphics programs.
