There are some examples using DDE with MS Word and Excel on the MixW web site. There are also examples of using it as an ActiveX component.
I've played a little bit with it as an ActiveX component, but I so far haven't found the type library, so since I don't know all the methods it exposes, it's somewhat limiting. I've sent an email to Nick, but no response so far.
If you are successful in finding out the methods available, please let me know!
