Inventory Items and DDE

There's even more fun if you're working with inventory items via DDE. You can only extract the quantity on hand from Peachtree via DDE (that field isn't available for text import). Fair enough, but you can't export the current item cost for a stock item via DDE. That gem can only be extracted from Peachtree via text file. So, if you need both the Quantity on Hand AND the Item cost, you get to create a solution that involves both DDE and exporting via text file. It's just a blast!
Update: Version 8.02 and later of Peachtree allow you to export the Quantity on hand to a text file.
