Object linking and embedding

Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) is a technology that lets you share data between applications and is supported for Microsoft Windows.

OLE lets you link or embed data from other applications, such as a Lotus 1-2-3® chart, Word Pro® document, or Freelance Graphics® presentation, in an IBM® Notes® document. The collection of data you embed is an object.

You can embed or link part of a file or a whole file. You can also embed an object in a Notes® document and use the object's application to enter data in Notes®. For example, if you have 1-2-3®, you could create a blank 1-2-3® spreadsheet object and enter 1-2-3® spreadsheet data in a Notes® document.
