Using Word with VBA, I have a program that creates a document similar to another open document. To distinguish the two, I add some code that specifies a tan page color (excuse the bad formatting; my fault):
        ActiveDocument.Background.Fill.ForeColor.ObjectThemeColor = color:
        wdThemeColorBackground2 color:
        ActiveDocument.Background.Fill.ForeColor.TintAndShade = -0.1
color:
        ActiveDocument.Background.Fill.Visible = msoTrue
        ActiveDocument.Background.Fill.Solid.

It does not seem to change the background at all as shown on the screen, yet when printed or when viewed in Full Screen Reading, the tan color shows clearly.
What am I doing wrong?
