Default Word don't get connect external DDE

Good afternoon.


I have a word direct mail DDE connected to excel.
The first document I did work perfectly, but I had to change some things, and now the informations come wrongly.
I already checked the box in excel to ignore others apps DDE, but doesn't worked.
How to fix it please?
Change the registry key doesn't work too, I think I did correctly.
Thanks.

Since you haven't told us what the problem is, other than giving a description of it, I don't know how you can expect anyone here to help resolve the issue.

There is no need to change any registry key for this. And, since we don't know what you changed, we're unable to comment on the effect of that change.

Default DDE conection

Good night and I'm sorry if I wasn't clear.
What was happening is that the Excel formatting was not brought the same to Word, for example:
In Excel the date is 25/05/2021...when it was inserted in Word it appeared 05/25/2021.
But now the situation has worsened because not even the window with the connection options (those that include the DDE connection) is showing up in Word.
Now only a window appears to insert the Excel table directly, without any options.
Did any windows update cause a conflict with this Word feature? Because on another notebook I have, where this connection worked perfectly, the DDE connection window no longer appears either.
Thanks in advance.

You need to study how issues such as mailmerge connections and date formats are handled in the Mailmerge Tips and Tricks 'Sticky' thread at the top of this forum:
https://www.msofficeforums.com/mail-...ps-tricks.html. As you will see from the discussion there, there is no need to use DDE.
