Is it possible to update a variable in Writer from the value of a cell in Calc?

I know we can DDE Link a cell in a Writer, but it takes up the entire line.

I need to reference a value used in text so wondering how to best do it.

Perhaps by linking a cell by DDE, keeping that cell hidden and then update a Set Variable based on that table cell?

That would work for me as well if that can be done as I have a tables already DDE linked and I could get the vaue from one of those cells - is what I really need in my paragraphs.

Or a totally different approach?

Appreciate your help with this matter.
