You need specs and/or examples.  One of the biggest shortcomings of DDE is
that it is there is no way to ask an application what operations it
supports.  Worse, there is no particular standard for the format of DDE
messages, so even if you know the function you want to perform, you can't
guess what the message and its parameters should be.

What DDE app are you trying to control?
