DDE Commands

Question asked by VRFuser on Jul 26, 1999

I'm currently using DDE to communicate with Excel with Vee 5.01.  We have
Excel 95, and Excel 97 (set up to save in Excel 95 format).  When a file is
saved by Excel 97, and it is opened in Excel 95, I get an additional prompt
asking me if I want to open it as read-only.  This causes my program to
crash.  Does anyone have a way around this?  Or does anyone have a list of
the commands that I can use to open/save/close a DDE application.  I have a
few, but most of these commands are not documented very well.
