<<Richard Dickinson asks>>
Based on the documentation I've read (SAS 6.11 for Windows), SAS is
always the client in a DDE situation. This means that another
application cannot send any commands to SAS. Is this limitation being
addressed? What about later releases of SAS? Anyone on the list dealt
with a situation where they needed SAS to be commanded by another
SAS 6.12, under Windows 95 and Windows NT, can act as an "OLE Automation
Server" and have other applications send commands or submit programs to it. I
believe that this capability may also be present in experimental form in 6.11.
