Ok here is what I found

All members of Exel.Global

Property DDEAppReturnCode As Long (read only)

Sub DDEExecute(Channel As Long, String As String)
Function DDEInitiate(App As String, Topic As String) As Long
Function DDERequest(Channel As Long, Item As String)
Sub DDEPoke(Channel As Long, Item, Data)
Sub DDETerminate(Channel As Long)

Hope this is what you're looking for.
PS. if you want to supply your email I could send you some examples of how to use these commands (in Dutch) :O).
