Application.DDETerminate Method

Office 2007
You can use the DDETerminate statement to close a specified dynamic data exchange (DDE) channel.

Syntax

expression.DDETerminate(ChanNum)

expression   A variable that represents an Application object.

Parameters

NameRequired/OptionalData TypeDescription
ChanNumRequiredVariantA channel number to close, refers to a channel opened by the DDEInitiate function.

Return Value
Nothing

Remarks

For example, if you've opened a DDE channel to transfer data between Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Access, you can use the DDETerminate statement to close that channel once the transfer is complete.

If the channum argument isn't an integer corresponding to an open channel, a run-time error occurs.

Once a channel is closed, any subsequent DDE functions or statements performed on that channel cause a run-time error.

The DDETerminate statement has no effect on active DDE link expressions in fields on forms or reports.

If you need to manipulate another application's objects from Microsoft Access, you may want to consider using Automation.
