Ok I attempted to brew a Heffeweisen previously and made my starter with DME. This DME is wheat extract malt. I dont have any other type DME at the present time, and will be brewing a german alt from N.B. Is the wheat DME acceptable to use to make a starter with my wyeast 1007?

I understand I would need to decant off as much as I could before pitching.

Should be just fine. I wouldn't think twice about it, if it's all you got on hand.
