Insert An Object In An Office 13 Program

Have you ever wanted to insert an Object in an Excel Spreadsheet, such as a Word Document, a PowerPoint Presentation, a PDF file or any other kind of file? The reason for attaching an Object into a spreadsheet is that we can access it more easily and quicker during a meeting. When we insert an Object this way, we can include a clickable icon in the spreadsheet, which is linked to the file, or even create a new file. In the example below, I will be using to insert an Object in an Excel Spreadsheet. The same procedure is followed also for other Microsoft Office 13 programs.

In order to insert an Object in a spreadsheet we must follow the steps below.

Security Warning in Office 2013

In the previous post of mine I mentioned about how Office 2013 and Windows 8 protects us from files that we wave downloaded from the Internet or received one as an a attachment from Outlook.

Some files that we have downloaded from Internet or received as an attachment from Outlook contain active content with links. When we open a file like that, a Security Warning line appears below the ribbon as we can see in the image below. The Security Warning informs us that Automatic Updates Of Links Has Been Disabled. If we are sure about the file we can press the Enable Content button in order to edit and view the file.

Security – Unblock An Office 2013 File

In a previous post of mine I mentioned about the Protected View in Office 2010. Now with Office 2013 and Windows 8 things are much more secure.

First of all let’s refresh our memory about Protected View. Protected View appears when we download files from the Internet, or when we open attachments from Outlook basically.

When we open a file either that came from the Internet or an attachment from Outlook, a Security Warning line appears below the ribbon which notifies us that Be Careful-Files From The Internet Can Contain Viruses. Unless you need to edit, it’s safer to stay in Protected View as shown in the image below. If we are sure about the file we can press the Enable Content button in order to edit and view the file.
