DDE command, Omnis as client. This command sends a request to the server asking to be advised of any changes made to a specified data item. An error occurs if the channel is not open. The command takes the Omnis field name and the server data item name as parameters. The data item name can contain square bracket notation.

Whenever Omnis is advised of a change in field value, that value is changed providing your library is in enter data mode.

The flag is set if the command is successful.

You can use a control method to detect the arrival of data from the server using evSent.
