I didn't think Excel's support for the 4 Required AEvents worth
mentioning either. And I can find no use for DDE.

Some MicroSoft voice #s: (800) 426-9400, (206) 882-8661, (206) 454-2030.

I can pass these on to anyone who needs them. Or contact Claris:
(408) 727-9054, <CLARIS.TECH@applelink.apple.com>, "Claris" on AOL
(also a bulletin board), or 76004,1614 on CIS.
The Tech Notes are written in a tutorial style and include source.
I also have a slick demo from Claris of HyperCard sending data to
Resolve and having it format, display, and chart it, via AppleEvents.
The HyperCard side could be ported to MCL quite easily.
