I have an application where I Show a Common Dialog Box.  The user selects either a Word or Excel File, then my program opens the appropriate File.  Once the user is finished with the Excel or Word File, I need to know when they have closed down the application(Excel/Word).  Then, I would like to pop up my Common Dialog Box again.

Thanks in advance,
