DDE, MS Access send request to Delphi App want response.
Posted on 2004-08-11
Well Hello Again,
I know I should be using OLE or COM but I don't know how, and at the moment don't have time to fit the learning in. So here's my teaser.
I want to send a DDE message from Access to my Delphi App and receive a response back in Access. How do I do that? If I use DDEExecute then Access only receives notification from my app that the data was received successfully. DDEPoke does'nt work.
I want to send a request saying 'are you busy', I want my Delphi App to respond. My Access App can then send a second DDE command depending on the result.
As always help is mucho appreciated.
