Sometimes a DDE/Suitelink object will get disconnected from a DAServer. If this happens there isn't an automatically reconnection function.
We monitor this connection and reconnect if needed using a script inside of the DDE/Suitelink.
- Open your DDE/Suitelink object. Click on the scripts tab
- Create a script called Reconnect
- Configure the script as below
Scripts: Execution type: Execute (default) and locked
Expression: Me.ConnectionStatus <> 2
Trigger type: WhileTrue (default)
Trigger Period: 00:00:05.0000000
Script body Me.Reconnect = true
- Save your DDE/Suitelink and redeploy
Now anytime the DDE/Suitelink disconnects it will try to reconnect to the DAServer every 5 seconds.
