Link and Embed Data (OLE)

With the Microsoft Windows OLE feature, you can copy or move information from one application to another while retaining the ability to edit the information in the original application.

Object linking and embedding (OLE) is a Windows feature that combines data from different applications into one document. For example, you can create an Adobe PageMaker layout that contains an AutoCAD drawing, or you can create an AutoCAD drawing that contains all or part of a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.
