Assigns a value to a specific item in a remote application.


procedure DDEPoke (out tErrCode, inout tServ,\
in dde_item, in dde_val)


tErrCode longint, an error code
tServ longint, connection handle
dde_item char, item name
dde_val char, value of the item


DDEPoke assigns a value to a specific item in a remote application. Consult the documentation of the remote application for information on what constitutes an item. The value of an item is always given as char.

The filename is ddepoke.pgm.


For example, given that DDE_Err and hServ are of type longint, to set the value of row 1, column 1 in the current spreadsheet, enter the following:

DDEPoke (DDE_Err, hServ, ‘R1C1′, ’25’)

This example “pokes” the value ’25’ into row 1, column 1.
