NT EXE Based Indicator

I currently have a Esignal Indicator, that takes data from Esignal and uses DDE to stream the data into MS Excel. Within the spreadsheet, based on what the DDE data has, it will color bars different colors, IE GREEN / RED, etc. and other things like this. I simply open Esignal, and run the Indicator, and then minimize it, and then open NT app.

Its a pain as I have to open up Esignal, (which I only use for the indicator), then open up Excel, and then open up NT. So my computer is quite busy processing all the data....

I am in the process of getting this code over to NT, and I wanted to know if there is a way I can build an EXE program, that I can run to pull the data from Esignal, but have the EXE running, to display the data in the program VS the Excel Sheet?

OR is there a built in feature within NT that would allow me to customize the fields, etc. and run this from within NT?

I can explain any of these items in further detail, but just wanted to provide a brief overview of what I am looking for. If anyone has any ideas, I would be glad to hear from you.
