DDE Info from IE (displaying Microsoft CRM

I have an application that (in part) integrates with Goldmine and is fairly simple.  I send a text box to this function and it does the following (which makes the orders being displayed change as the user changes companies in Goldmine).

 oCompanyField.LinkMode = vbLinkNone
 oCompanyField.LinkTopic = "GOLDMINE|DATA"
 oCompanyField.LinkItem = "Company"
 oCompanyField.LinkMode = vbLinkAutomatic

My question is this:  We are moving to Microsoft CRM, which run in IE.  How can I perform the same operation?  Can I DDE info from an IE "field" being displayed on the screen?

See attached code and screenshot for better idea of what I am describing.
