Embedding data in a Notes document

You can embed data from another application into a rich-text field in an HCL Notes® document.

An embedded OLE object is a copy of data, so changes made to the original file are not reflected in Notes. To create an embedded object, both the original application and your operating system must support OLE technology.

When you click an embedded object a new menu appears in Notes that reflects the type of application.

Once you have embedded the data you can expand and view it in the Notes window. You may also be able to change other attributes of the object.

For more information, see Modifying an OLE object or ActiveX custom control using Notes properties.
