A document, such as a word processing document, that contains one or more linked objects from other applications.
Any document containing more than one data type, typically rich text, synthetic graphics and raster images.
(see Integrated Document)
a document (preferably a word-processor document intended to be printed) containing embedded data presented as pictures
a document that appears to be a single unit, but which is in fact made up of information from more than one program
a way of storing data in multiple formats such as text, graphics, video, and sound, in a single document
A term from document management, denoting the fact that a document is typically made up of components -- e.g., a header, body, footer, a spreadsheet, some images. Note, however, that the term implies that the document is the organizing entity -- and that the components are the exception: a top-to-bottom view. In contrast, Web content management systems typically use a bottom-to-top view, organizing atomic components -- templates, content, images, hyperlinks -- to create pages.
A document that contains data in different formats created by different applications. Compound documents are created in a container application, such as Microsoft Word, and information from another application, such as a spreadsheet from Microsoft Excel, a sound clip, or a bitmap, is either embedded in or linked to the container application.
Compound document features provide the ability to create document-to-document relationships that quickly organize documents into logical groups. This allows you to link related documents together that would not be stored in the same folder.
A document that contains components built by more than one application. See also document-centric computing.
A document that contains, in addition to text, graphics, images, or other non-textual components.
A file that has more than one element (text, graphics, voice, video) mixed together.
A compound document is a document that uses more than one XML Namespace. Compound documents may be defined as documents that contain elements or attributes from multiple document types.
Compound Document Architectures@@ See also: document
A document that contains data from two or more applications. For example, a word processing document that contains a chart from a spreadsheet program is a compound document.
A compound document is a set of one or more pages that consists of a mixture of text and images, for example pdf or html.
In computing, a compound document is a document type typically produced using word processing software, and is a regular text document intermingled with e.g. spreadsheets, pictures, digital videos, digital audio, and other multimedia features. It can also be used to collect several documents into one.
