How can I create a link to an embedded object?

If you're using Windows®, you can create a link from an HCL Notes® document, or another OLE application, to an embedded object in Notes®.


  1. Open the document in Edit mode and click the embedded object.
  2. Click Object Menu > Copy External.Object Menu refers to the new menu that appears in Notes® when you click an object.
  3. In the application or the Notes® document, click where you want the link to appear.
  4. Click Edit > Paste Special.
  5. Click Paste Link (or equivalent).
  6. Select the object.
    Note: To create a link to only part of an embedded object, open in Edit mode the document containing the embedded object. Then double-click the object, select the data you want to link, and follow the above steps.
