Managing OLE objects

Microsoft Windows applications can use embedded objects, which are also referred to as OLE objects.  An OLE object is a document part that is created by another Windows application. An OLE object, like any other graphical object, is an integral part of a document. The only difference is that those objects are edited in another application, the one where they were initially created.

To create an OLE object:

  • On the main menu, point to Table, point to Pictures, and click Insert Object.
  • Use the mouse to draw a rectangle where you want to insert an OLE object.
  • Select the object type.

Then a Windows application for editing objects of this type is opened. At that, the Designer window layout changes: commands specific to the new application are added to the main menu, context menus, and the toolbar.

Warning! Programs for OLE object creation are not included in 1C:Enterprise distribution kit. These are separately licensed Windows applications. To obtain help for these applications, refer to the documentation supplied with the applications.

  • Edit the OLE object if required.
  • Finish editing the OLE object by clicking anywhere in the spreadsheet work area outside of the object.

An OLE object shares all the properties of graphical objects. You can move or resize it, copy it using the mouse or the clipboard, combine it with other objects, or delete it. For more information, see Using graphical objects.

To edit an OLE object, double-click it. This opens the Windows application where it has been created.
