Double-clicking on link does not activate the DDE link in V8.5.x as it didin prior version of V8.There was a way to "jump-start" DD E Links when linking text to designfrom an Excel file so that when you made changes in Excelit would automatically upgrade the link in MicroStation. What ishappening now is when you double-click on the link text in MicroStationthe text editor opens and it no longer jumpstart the link.Product: MicroStation V8 2004 EditionVersion: 08.05.01.25Area: DDE/OLE
What you will need to do is to open the Excel spreadsheet that the linkis made from. You will then need to go to the Edit>DDE Links and selectthe "Open Source" button. Once this button is selected any changes thathave been made in Excel will now be applied to the link in MicroStation.
