Changing the source for a linked file

One way to change the content of a linked OLE object is to change its source file. If the new source file is the same file type as the original source file, then changing the source might be a simple way to change the content of the OLE object without changing its position. For example, you can substitute one image for another. However, if the selected OLE object is only a portion of a file, or if the new source file is a different type of file, changing the source file may have unexpected results.

To change the source for a linked file

1 Select the OLE object with the Pick tool.

2 Click Edit, Links.

3 Click Change Source.

4 Browse to the folder where the file is located.

5 Double-click the filename.

6 Click the Close button.
