Hi ,

I am getting an error while exporting an data using DDE. The steps taken to resolve this issue:
1. Opened an new sas session
2. Closed the excel sheet and ran the program.
3. Opened the excel sheet & minimized and ran the program

But still am getting an error as below,
ERROR: DDE session not ready.
FATAL: Unrecoverable I/O error detected in the execution of the data step program.Aborted during the EXECUTION phase.

Please let me know how to resolve this ERROR.

Thanks in Advance
