With a word macro (VBA) I wrote data in cells of an Embedded excel sheet  in a word document. After this the macro makes some changes in word document itself. But the application focus is still on the Excel Application, not on the word application.

Why activate the embedded object?

Sub EditSheet()
Dim Doc As Document
Dim wbk As Object
Dim wks As Object
Dim i As Integer
Set Doc = ActiveDocument
For i = 1 To Doc.InlineShapes.Count
    If Doc.InlineShapes(i).Type = wdInlineShapeEmbeddedOLEObject Then
        If Doc.InlineShapes(i).OLEFormat.ProgID = "Excel.Sheet.8" Then
            Set wbk = Doc.InlineShapes(i).OLEFormat.Object
            Set wks = wbk.Sheets("Sheet1")
            If wks Is Nothing Then
                MsgBox "Problem creating sheet object"
            Else
                wks.Range("A1") = "Top Left"
            End If
        End If
    End If
Next i
ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.SeekView = wdSeekMainDocument

End Sub

Just cut out this line from your previous code:

Doc.InlineShapes(i).OLEFormat.DoVerb wdOLEVerbPrimary

just a note, DRJ's solution only works if the embedded object has previously been activated/edited.

if it hasn't you will get a run-time error '430'
