Excel DDE Embedded reference

Hi Folks
I have the following DDE link in a cell in a spreadsheet:

=RSLINX|TOPIC_NAME!TAG_NAME

This works correctly :-)

Is it possible to get the topic and tag names from another cell ?
Something like:

=RSLINX| & Sheet1.Range("A1") & "!" & Sheet1.Range("A2")

Regards Simon
