    Question Troubleshooting DDE

    I'm not a C programmer but I need to troubleshoot a problem with some C code that does DDE peeks and pokes with Excel.
    The peeks work fine but when poking, only the left 5 characters of any string are poking. The only thing I can think of is that a variable involved with the poke is not typed correctly. Any suggestions on what I should look for?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Wow, not a real great discription, but maybe you should see about the size of the string you're putting it into. If you the size is too small, it won't store those x amount of last chars.

    Troubleshooting DDE

    Thanks and sorry about the weak description. Fact is.. I won't see the source until next week but I hoped to get as much advice as possible because I won't have long to resolve the problem.
    As for the string size, that is what I meant by "typed wrong", including size with type. Sorry for the confusion.
    Anyway I will review the sizes of all variables.
    Thanks again.
    Dave

    No problem. Tell me if that works when you get the source.
