Dear Experts:

from the current worksheet I would like to have the following action using VBA:

1.) Start Word for Windows (2007) if it is not already open and ...
2.) create a new Word document (Word 2007) based on the normal template or alternatively based on a user-defined template (called MyTemplate.dotm located directly under C:\).

Help is much appreciated.

Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas
