'Usage
Dim instance As LinkFormat

Use the LinkFormat property of a Shape, InlineShape, or Field object to return the LinkFormat object.

Not all types of shapes, inline shapes, and fields can be linked to a source. Use the Type property of a Shape or InlineShape object to determine whether a particular shape can be linked. The Type property for a Field object returns the type of field.

You can use both the Update method and the AutoUpdate property to update links. To return or set the full path for a particular link's source file, use the SourceFullName property.
