Microsoft Office to OpenOffice Migration Guide
Previous Page Home Next Page

Linked files

Cells copied from Excel and pasted special, linked and with RTF format, into Word are imported into Writer as a normal table. This means that when the document is imported, the link to the Excel file is lost.

Similarly when a chart is copied from Excel and pasted special, linked into Word, and then the file imported into Writer, the chart is imported as an embedded OLE object but is not converted into a Calc chart. On saving the file in Word format and then opening the file in Word and trying to edit the chart by double-clicking, it displays an error message.

Caution

Links in Microsoft Office files between Word and Excel are lost when the Microsoft office files have been edited by OpenOffice.org.
