Creating links to other applications or data

You can create links to data in other applications; to other HCL Notes® documents, views and applications; or to embedded objects by creating a linked OLE object in a rich-text field.

A linked object is a direct gateway to the data in the source application, so you can see any changes made in the source application when you open the link in Notes. To create a linked OLE object, both the original application and your operating system must support OLE technology.

When you click a link, a new menu appears in Notes. The name of the menu reflects the type of application you are linking to.
