Title:

Error 60, TCB=-16389, using DDE with Visual PRO/5

Description:

An error 60, TCB=-16389, can occur if the command being sent to the other application is not terminated by a $00$. Although the command might be executed, it can result in strange behavior. 

Here's an example: 

005 OPEN (1,MODE="DDECLIENT")"EXCEL:SYSTEM" 
010 REM OPEN (1,MODE="ddeclient")"Excel:d:\My Documents\test1.xls" 
020 LET CMD$="[OPEN(""d:\My Documents\test1.xls"")]"+$00$ 
030 WRITE RECORD(1,KEY="DDE_EXECUTE")CMD$ 
040 CLOSE (1) 

Note the $00$ appended on the end of line 20.
