This seems like an interesting thread to bump.
I have recently decided to move a lot of my trading to excel environment and would appreciate any inputs on different excel technologies that IB supports (DDE vs ActiveX). Especially, stability, performance, number of tickers that can simultaneously get data without any effect on performance etc.
Use the ActiveX version if you can.
That is their advice.
The DDE version is only kept around at all because there are a few situations relating to networking or Windows/Excel versions where the ActiveX version cannot be used.
