How DDE Links Convert Between WordPerfect and Word


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word for Windows, version 6.0


Word 6.0 for Windows fully supports the conversion of dynamic data exchange (DDE) links to and from WordPerfect versions 5.1 and 5.2 for Windows.

To facilitate proper export of DDE links, the converter provides separate options to convert to WordPerfect 5.0, WordPerfect 5.1 for MS-DOS, and WordPerfect 5.x for Windows formats. Selecting WordPerfect 5.x for Windows format will ensure that DDE links are retained.

Earlier versions of Word do not retain DDE links in conversion to or from WordPerfect.


The WordPerfect products mentioned here are manufactured by a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding these products' performance or reliability.

For more information or support with WordPerfect, contact WordPerfect Customer Support at (800) 228-1029.
