OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) - Definition

OLE is an abbreviation for Object Linking and Embedding. It is a way to transfer and share information between applications by pasting information created in one application into a document created in another application, such as a spreadsheet or word processing file. OLE uses a fat client architecture, which means that the file type or the application which is being embedded must be present on the machine which is being operated upon. For instance, if a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet is to be manipulated or even viewed, then there must be a copy of Microsoft Excel or Excel Viewer installed on the user' machine.
