You can incorporate documents, spreadsheets, graphs, charts, and data from other applications but related to your financial model on the OLE (object linking and embedding) tab. You embed or link items with the model:

  • Embedded objects are stored within the financial model.

  • Linked objects are stored in source files, but referenced from the financial model.

Use object linking to link data from external spreadsheets to Strategic Finance. Linked data automatically updates whenever you change the source.


You can only link and embed objects from applications that fully support OLE.
