I reopen this thread as I have the exact same question asked above. Why choose excel active X over DDE?
IIRC, DDE is aged and slow. Might even be obsolete on some platforms.
FIX is the standard, which would use a FIX engine -- there was one that I believe was DDE for excel -- I downloaded a demo years ago and I don't recall it ever working.
Disclaimer: I didn't realize this was an IB thread (I checked last post first) -- I thought it was the excel thread I posted on a few days ago. Still, DDE is old, was old 5 years ago.
