How do I:   (1) find if a task is running (2) make the task visible if it is invisible and (3) maximize the task (make it the active window)?

Tasks are MSACCESS.EXE and/or WINWORD.EXE

An additional need is  if the task is WINWORD.EXE, and there are several documents open, how to make one of the documents visible and the active window?    (ex: Doc1, Doc2, and Doc3 are all open and let's say I want to make Doc2 the active visible document/window)

Regards.
