Timeout occurred while waiting for DDE response
The other application in a DDE conversation did not respond in the time specified by the LinkTimeout property.
The other application is not responding because it is waiting for a response from the user. Switch to that application and close the dialog box or take an action appropriate to the message it is displaying.
The LinkTimeout property is set to a value that is too low. Try increasing the value.
The other application is too busy to respond to DDE messages. Try calling the DoEvents function before performing this DDE operation.
