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

(OP)
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:

URL
WEBURL
WEBSITEURL
WEB
WEBADDRESS
CUSTOMERWEBSITE
WWW
WWWADDRESS
WWWURL
CUSTOMERWEB
CUSTOMERWEBSITE
CUSTOMERURL
URLADDRESS

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:
