Using Object Linking to Link Data

You link data from a source analysis into the Accounts spreadsheet tab—Strategic Finance updates the data whenever you change the source file. You can link blocks of accounts, individual accounts, or items. The source must support OLE functionality and the source account structure must match the Strategic Finance account structure.

Linked values attach to a Strategic Finance cells, with cells defined as accounts in time periods within scenarios. Strategic Finance treats each cell as a hotlink. If you break the link with one cell and the source, the other cells remain linked. You add rows by activating accounts in Account Groups, and columns by changing time period detail in Time Periods between hotlinked cells—each cell remains linked to the source application.
