Hey there,

I'm trying to get a sub to run when an external app
updates the value in a linked cell.

The Worksheet_Change() event functions fine if I
manually change the cell value,  but it doesn't
fire when the cell value is updated via a DDE link!

What gives?  Any workarounds?  The sub to be
called alters another page in the workbook.
