I have a simple macro that commuincates with another program by using a dde
connection. the problem is that I get an error message almost every time time
I run the program fo rthe first time (ie a DDE connection was not established
prior to my running the macro). Thus it may be that the connection is not
"ready" the first time I try to communicate throught it. This is really
annoying..Is there any way of checking that the connection is OK? I open my
connection with:
channelNumber = Application.DDEInitiate(app:="BLP", topic:="S")
and then i get a message box that I need to click Ok. (i communicate with
the bloomberg professional if that may be of any help). thanks alot for any
help!
