how to get Word doc on top of Access
Posted on 2002-05-10
I have a function in an Access 97 db that opens a (or creates a new) Word document and fills in its bookmarks with information from the database.
I recently updated the database to change some things and now when it opens/creates the Word document, Access is always visible on the screen while Word is in the background and on the task bar. Whereas before when Word was open it was the active program (not Access).
Does anyone know what I did that made this switch? Even a suggestion of where to look would be helpful. Does anyone know any code that will bring Word to the front and Access to the back?
Thanks for any help you can give!
