Edit an object

For editing purposes, you can open the source (source: The location where moved, copied, imported, or exported information originated; can be a view, table, document, or other program. In OLE, the document or program that furnishes information to a linked object in a destination, document, or program.) program of a linked or embedded object (embedded object: Information [the object] inserted in a file [the destination file]. Once embedded, the object becomes part of the destination file. When you double-click an embedded object, it opens in the program it was created in [the source program].) directly in Microsoft Office Project 2003.

  1. To edit an object that contains data such as a text field, document, spreadsheet, or graphic, double-click the object.

To edit an object that performs an action such as a sound or video clip, select the object, click the object name on the Edit menu, and then click Edit.

  1. Use the source program's commands to edit the object.
  2. If you edit the object in place in the open program, click anywhere outside the object to return to Project.

If you edit the object in the source program in a separate window, click Exit on the File menu to return to Project.

 Notes 

  • To edit an object with a different source program, point to Object on the Edit menu, and then click Convert. To convert the object to the type selected in the Object Type list, click Convert to. To open the object as the type selected in the Object Type list without changing the embedded object type, click Activate as.
  • You cannot edit an object that performs an action (such as a sound or video clip) in a task, resource, or assignment note.
