An entity, such as a file, folder, shared folder, printer, or Active Directory object, described by a distinct, named set of attributes. For example, the attributes of a File object include its name, location, and size; the attributes of an Active Directory User object might include the users first name, last name, and e-mail address.

Changes you make in the object in the first document will not be updated in the second unless the embedded object is explicitly updated.
