Linking text frames, DTP-style


I'm trying to link two text frames in WordPerfect X3 so that text flows automatically from one to the other. Can this be done? I can't figure it out.

Any and all help gratefully received.

Put a table or floating cell in them.  Set the formula in one to point to the other.  One the master (first one) is changed, you will need to press the Calculate button on the Formula toolbar to update the referenced cells or play a macro to execute a Calculate.
