I have a VB application which is generating a Word document. It uses Selection.Information(wdVerticalPositionRelativeToPage) to assist in it's processing. It works fine when Word is visible and not minimized, but when we minimize Word (for performance reasons - our benchmarks indicate it does generate faster), the information returned is not always correct, causing erroneous processing. Can you suggest a workaround. BTW, I did try the Microsoft knowledgebase, but didn't find anything.
