How can I close DDE connections?

If I am testing macros that are opening DDE connections to Excel, is there a way to force all of the DDE connections to close if something crashes? I have noted that the macro becomes unstable if I have to run it more than once and I think this is what is happening.

Bonus question, is there a way, assuming nothing beyond MS Office XP (2002) and Windows XP standard software, to see what DDE connections are open?
