To run this test case evaluate the following:
DdeSpreadsheetClient new open
This opens up a window with a menu named DDE. Next start Microsoft Excel (Excel version 4.0 is used in this example) and fill in two cells with numbers. Under the Microsoft Excel menu Formula choose Define Name. This option enables these cells to be named x and y, respectively. Save the spreadsheet with the name ddesrvr.xls. (The DDE client looks for a server with this name.)
The window in this test case provides a menu for the following:
Connecting to the spreadsheet
Hotlinking, warmlinking, and coldlinking to the two items
Requesting the items from the server
There is also a menu option for bringing up a dialog showing the available servers, topics, and items.
