I've searched around but couldn't find a satisfying answer.
Can I have a python script that access DDE data like Excel does? Are there any scripts floating around that do that?
I'm having difficulty accessing DDE data through Excel as it crashes every time, and Java is a likely problem. I've tried changing permissions, firewall, user account settings, stopping Chrome etc. One suggestion had to do with java 32 bit vs. 64 bit on windows 7 64-bit installations.
So, if a Python script won't suffer from Java interference/connection problems of DDE, then I'd like to do that.
Windows 7 Ultimate (&Pro)
Java 7 32 bit & 64 bit
