Detailed Description

describes all items of a DDE connection used in formulas.

A DDE connection consists of the DDE service name, the DDE topic and a list of DDE items which may contain results cached from the last update.

The formula that would need this information for example would contain =[1]!'R1C1' or =[2]!'Sheet1.A1' where [1] is an external link with DDE service name "excel" and the topic "X:\PATH\[FILE.XLSX]Sheet1", and [2] contains service "soffice" and topic "file:///X:/PATH/FILE.ODS". The service name is stored in DDELinkInfo::Service, the topic is stored in DDELinkInfo::Topic. Note that if the DDE item contains single quotes they are escaped by doubling them, as usual, for example =[2]!'''Sheet name''.A1' in a "soffice" service.
