Linking Documents--Part 2 of 5: Accessing the Server Document
In a previous tip, we introduced you to the concept of linking documents using Microsoft's Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) technology. Now let's say you're working in a client document that contains an automatically updated telephone number, linked from a server document somewhere else on your system. All of a sudden, you remember that this telephone number has changed, and you need to access the server document to change it (remember, you don't want to break the link by editing the number on the client document).

You can open the server document immediately by right-clicking on the linked text and selecting Linked Document Object, Open Link. The server document opens and positions the insertion point at the place where the linked text occurs.
