I need to minimize access application so there is just my Desktop displayed.

I'm trying to automate reports from a shelled program, as this program has no automated controls and can't be controled by send keys. I've writen a short VBA program to control the mouse, this works fine in excel as i can minimize the whole application. But i can not achive the same effect in access.

e.g in excel Application.Minimize
the docmd.Minimize just minimizes the database window not the whole application.

Thank you
