Embedding objects into drawings
Embed an object into your progeCAD drawing when you want to keep all the data you work with in one file or if you want to transfer the file to other computers. You can embed data from programs that support object linking and embedding.
For example, if you want to distribute data about a department's computer equipment along with an progeCAD drawing of the department's floor plan, you can embed a Microsoft® Excel spreadsheet into the floor plan.
When you embed data from another program, progeCAD becomes the container for that data. The object embedded in the progeCAD drawing becomes part of the progeCAD file. When you edit the data, you open its program from within the progeCAD drawing.
Any changes you make to the embedded data exist only in the progeCAD drawing, so it is not necessary to keep that data in a separate file. If the data does exist in a separate file, the original file does not change when you modify the embedded object in progeCAD. Also, changes to the original file do not affect the embedded object in the progeCAD drawing.
