About this task

You can embed a whole file as an object in an IBM® Notes® document.


  1. Open the document you want to add the embedded object to.
  2. Click where you want the object to appear.
  3. Click Create > Object.
  4. Click Object from a file.
  5. In the File box, enter the path to the file and the file name, or browse to find the file you want.
  6. (Optional) Click Display as icon to display the data as an icon.

    Note: If you're using Windows®, you can use drag and drop to embed a file created with an application that supports OLE 2.0. To do so, click Start > Programs > Windows Explorer, right-click the file, drag the file from Explorer, drop it into a rich-text field in the Notes® document, and click Create Embedded Object here from the menu that appears.
