I know it wasn't used much, also it was a PC only technology, however....
If OLE happened to solve a problem you had, then it was magical.
That said, I have a database that stored word documents as OLE objects.
When the users wanted to view or edit a document, they just double clicked on the container and it opened in Word.
When they were done, just close the document and it saves back into the database.
They have converted to 12 and long for this functionality again.
What are the other 3 of you that used OLE doing now that this was depricated in 12?
