DDE Support


I am having trouble using a DDE formula in my application. I always get an error or the value of the cell gets set to =#N/A. Any help or workarounds would be great. Here is my code...

Dim cells_license As Aspose.Cells.License = New Aspose.Cells.License


Dim workbook As Workbook = New Workbook

Dim worksheet As Worksheet = workbook.Worksheets(0)

Dim cells As Aspose.Cells.Cells = worksheet.Cells

Dim cell As Cell = cells("A1")

'cell.Formula = "=PROPHETX|QUOTE!\'CZ0[DTN:CBOT]?Last\'"

cell.Formula = "=PROPHETX|QUOTE!'CZ0[DTN:CBOT]?Last'"


workbook.Save("C:\Users\Cletis & Kerri\Desktop\test.xls", FileFormatType.Excel2003)

cell = Nothing

cells = Nothing

worksheet = Nothing

workbook = Nothing
