Prevent DDE link checking

Version: 2022b

Type: Features

Category: Data Handling

Subcategory: Worksheet

Jira: ORG-17394

Sometimes user copies Excel data and paste link in Origin. Save Origin project file (opju) and share with others who doesn’t have access the to original Excel file.

When such opju file is opened, Start DDE link dialog will popup for each link and there is no way to remove the links.

In Origin 2022b, new system variable @DDEN is added to allow preventing DDE link establishment.

Default value is 0. Change it to 1 and then open the opju will prevent the Start DDE Link dialog from openning.

Then user can choose Edit: Remove Links… (also new in Origin 2022b) to convert all links to values and resave the opju for future use.
