DDE fields- how to access the Customer 'website' field

DDE fields- how to access the Customer 'website' field

DDE fields- how to access the Customer 'website' field

I looked in the sample Excel programs and the help screens, but did not see a way to access the "website" field for a customer.  

Is there a way in DDE to "dump" out the variables available for a particular record type (customer, sales journal, etc) ?

I did find that there are more DDE fields than documented !!  The customer email field is not documented, but can be accessed via the EMAIL fieldname.

- still looking for the customer's website address- I have tried all these fields and they are not valid field names:


Does anybody have suggestions for other names to try or perhaps someone has discovered the magic name for this field ?

RE: DDE fields- how to access the Customer 'website' field

I don't know about DDE, I did not think Peachtree supported DDE.  It does have .ddfs - Data Definition Files - that allow the data to be read by Crystal Reports, among others.

Try reading the fields with crystalif you have it available.  I will be back in my office Friday and can give you a definate answer then, but I cannot right now.

mcarey101,  DDE gas been supported by Peachtree.  Don't know how to do it myself, but see this link for an example:
