VBA Word Change Unsaved Document Name "Document 1"

I have a system that outputs a report as a Word Document so the user can modify and print without actually saving the document.
Users are opening multiple docs and their taskbars are getting cluttered with Word docs called "Document 1", "Document 2" etc. There's often the need to keep them open for a while, but at no time is there the need to save them!
What i'd ideally like to do is change that default name without saving the document (ie to the Customer Name or similar). I've tried changing the BuiltInDocumentProperties("Title") property but that doesn't change what's shown in the taskbar.

Any ideas?

Hi,

Try using the activewindow caption
Sub ChangeWindowName()

  ActiveDocument.ActiveWindow.Caption = "MyCustomName"

End Sub

Open in new window
