1. Can you apply conditional formatting to the cells in Excel and then export the data to those cells instead? The conditional formatting will follow.
2. Otherwise, as you export the data, you can check the value and apply the back ground colour. This assumes you're using PUT statements to export your data. If you use PROC export this won't work.

I wouldn't use DDE - it's very old, awkward to work with and I believe no longer supported by Microsoft anyway. There are some better options detailed here using Proc Print, Proc Report etc.
