IB Excel DDE internet connection error

    I'm using excel to automate my trades. My system is for swing positions therefore I don't need real time data. I am getting data from yahoo that refreshes every 10 minutes.

    Every once in a while I get an error similar to this: "Could not refresh 'web address' because the internet connection timed out."

    If my system misses a piece of data, it doesn't really matter. What matters is that I don't want excel to stop running every time there is an error. I tired displayalerts = false but that doesn't suppress these for some reason.

    Anyone out there have a fix for this?
