VB Macro dialog box has focus

Hello,

I have a template that runs a dialog box on run which allows the user to enter specific details into a form which is then populated into the document itself.
In Word 2003 we could have another Word doc open, copy and paste content from this document into the dialog box - now we have upgraded to Word 2010 it will no longer let us open another Word document while the dialog box still has focus.

Any ideas around this?

By default, Userforms are opened modally. If a form is thus opened, nothing else can happen in the application until it is dismissed.
To change that behaviour, open form with code like this:
myForm.Show vbModeless

Open in new window
