"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try this code:
    Dim WApp As Object

    Set WDoc = WApp.Documents.Open(Filename:="C:\tmp\test.docx", ReadOnly:=True)
    WApp.Visible = True

Open in new window
