You can send array from VEE to Excel
to describe only row or column name in 'item';
For example, if you want to put array in a first row,
you can write 'item' as "R1".
But you have to change 'Data Formats' of the
To/From DDE object, which is in 'Edit Properties'
of object menu.
Set 'End Of Line' as "
" and 'Array Separator' as "     "(i.e. TAB).
In a same way, you can put data in a column
by item "C1" and then you have to set 'End Of Line' as "     ",
'Array Separator' as "

Sorry for my poor English.
Good luck for your job.
