Default Embedding vs. Linking an Excel File

Hi,

If I want to email a word file to my friend with excel charts embedded inside, he will be able to edit them, which is great. Unfortunately, each embedded excel chart in the word file is individual and not linked together.



So I figure creating a link to an excel file is good for this, except the linked excel file is stored on my computer and I can't email that to my friend to allow him to edit (the paths get all messed up).

Is there any way to achieve both these? I.e. Email a word file, with multiple excel charts, which are embedded inside, but are also all linked. So in updating 1 embedded excel file - all excel charts would be updated.

Is this possible?? Thank you!
