Are you want to create the control button in VB or in Word2000. The code for navigation is

activewindow.Next.Activate   'this is in vba

Step:
1.   From word menu, Tools->Customine, then select Tab Commands
2.   Choose All Command from the Categories listbox
3.   Then choose the command "NextWindow", click on the command in the command listbox and drag it to the toolbar, any toolbar can.

Thanks & Cheers

Sorry, I am not sure how to do that yet.

However, you can activate the window with name
Documents("my.doc").Activate

Thanks,

my.doc is just the document's name you want to activate. You can passed integer index as well like this,

Documents(2).Activate. I am not sure how to activate the last document. May be you have to post another topic out there.
