Is there a method of initiating the execution of a macro in an
Excel spreadsheet from PowerBuilder?  I'd like to populate a
spreadsheet with data from a PowerBuilder datawindow via DDE,
and then have an Excel macro be executed.

I'm making a small appplication in access2 and i
want to transfer some data to an Excel Sheet from
a DB2 server. I have a macro in Excel that makes
the Query. But I can't start this macro from Access
because i'm not sure what DDEExecute command to
use. Perphaps this isn't the best way to solve the
problem so if anybody got a better solution.......
