Some DDE servers can execute commands. These commands are identified by command strings, which can be sent to them within the current conversation.

To send a command to a DDE server:

ยท Call:

DdeExecute(<service>, <topic>, <string>)

"Service" and "Topic" identify the conversation in which the command is sent. This conversation must be started with:

DdeConnect(<service>, <topic>)

and may not have been finished with:

DdeDisconnect(<service>, <topic>)

"String" is the command to be executed by the server.
