I reccommend simple TAB separated ASCII text files every time. Excel and
Access both import that format very easily.

If you use DDE with some particular application, you VEE program is
locked in to using that application. If, however, you write to a simple
ASCII file, you're free to use different applications to read/process
the generated data.

Hope this helps.
