Iam not sure that I got your question correctly

All the DDE fuctions we see in VB and MS Access are essentially calls to WIN API (16 or 32)

Whole of the API is natively available to any C or C++
Programmer

So you can do everything in C++ that you can do with
VB or VBA

You can use the raw message-based DDE, the DDEML API, or some higher level C++ encapsulation like the one detailed by Nigel Thompson in the technical article "Implementing DDE Using C++ Classes" (available on MSDN).
The last seems appropriate for your request.

The full MSDN Library CD is also available online at http://www.microsoft.com/msdn. You must register to get access, but the registration is completely free.
Maybe you'll be able to get the source code from there.
If not, send me your E-Mail address and I'll attach you the whole thing - but please search the online MSDN before, I'm not sure whether forwarding MSDN articles violates any copyright.
