DDE Paradox to Peachtree

DDE Paradox to Peachtree

DDE Paradox to Peachtree

The foloowing code sucessfull esecutes a dde poke from paradox v9 to Peachtree Complete Acctg v7. (I doubt that the dde syntax has changed in later versions.)

My problem is that when I activate the password feature in Peachtree, of course the dde poke no longer works.  Does anyone know the syntax of poking the password.

If      ddeLink.open("peachw","incspec")  then
    ddeLink.setItem("File=General,Field=StartDate")        tmp1=ddeLink                        ddeLink.setItem("File=General,Field=EndDate")        tmp2=ddeLink
ddeLink =InvDate
ddeLink = CustNum
ddeLink = InvNum
ddeLink =DatDue
ddeLink = (AcctNum + " \t" + SubTot +" \t"+" \t" +"\t"+TotDescrip+" \t"+" \t"+TaxType+" \t")
;ddelink = ("21025" + " \t"+ SalesX +" \t" +" \t"+ " \t" +SalesXDescrip+" \t"  +" \t"+" \t"+" \t" )
ddelink = ("40350"+ " \t"+ BillFreight+" \t" +" \t"+ " \t" +"Billable Freight"+" \t"  +" \t"+"4"+"\t")

Any help greatly appreciated.

P.S. Randy Bell formerly of Executive Software (last known tel #303-771-8181)is an expert in theis area.  Does anyone know how to reach him??
