Error description

  • instead of an OLE object you will see a DOORS URL pointing to th
    e source object of the last link created.
    
    reproduce the following:
    
    - create a module with an OLE object in it and some blank object
    s
    - create a link from one of the blank objects to another using e
    ither the context sensitive menus (start link -? make link from
    start) or the items from the link menu  (start link -? make link
     from start)
    - save module
    - export to Word
    
    Workaround:
    The way that links are created is important - if you create a li
    nk using drag and drop then the problem doesn't happen
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When you create a link either by right-clicking or using the
    Link menu, and then export the module to Word, any OLE
    objects in the resulting Word document are replaced by URLs.
    

Problem conclusion

  • When you create a link either by right-clicking or using the
    Link menu, and then export the module to Word, any OLE
    objects in the resulting Word document are no longer
    replaced by URLs.
