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.

Perform any of the following tasks related to embedding data.
