Universal DDE

Postby chi jeongki » 27 Jan 2008

A question on limitation of handling DDE string by the Universal DDE data source.

If I use =GMSH|FC?101C3!TRDPRC_1 in excel, it reads price data.
But the same string in Universal DDE does not pass test button in Universal DDE setting dialog box. (price: Wait, Tick Count: 0)

If I put =GMSH|FC?101C3!TRDPRC_1 into R2C1 cell of excel and use =EXCEL|goodi.xlsx!R2C1 in universal DDE, then it reads price data from excel and can chart the price.

What is the additional limitation on using DDE string in Universal DDE ?
The fact that a DDE string works fine in excel does not guarantee that it will work in universal DDE ?
