  • Hi,

    This problem may occur if the Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) setting in Excel is selected.

    Try the following method:

    Microsoft Office Excel 2007
    1. Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Excel Options.
    2. Click Advanced, and then click to clear the Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) check box in the General area.
    3. Click OK.


    Sincerely
