DDE Errors w/ Data Transfers via Citrix
« on: September 03, 2008, 02:06:28 PM »
Just finished spending some time diagnosing some problems a customer was having transferring data via a /QRD to Excel.  On a dedicated connection, no problem.  Over Citrix, nothing but problems.  Apparently it worked some times, but the customer never knew when or why it would work.

Cutting to the chase, we recompiled TU.PC.DOWNLOAD and the transfer started working.  How we got to that conclusion was a protracted effort, but in the end that seemed to be the silver bullet that solved this problem.
Accidents "happen"; success, however, is planned and executed.
