Word and access 2013

Still having trouble opening word in access 2013. I have the following

Dim db As DAO.Database, rs As DAO.Recordset
    Dim search
    Set db = CurrentDb
    search = "SELECT * FROM tblConfig WHERE [ConfigID] = " & 1
    Set rs = db.OpenRecordset(search)
    DocLocation = rs.Fields("DocumentLocation")
    OrgID = Me!txtOrgID
    Organisation = Me!txtOrgname
    DocFileName = "HO" & OrgID & Organisation & ".docx"
    If Right(DocLocation, 1) = "\" Then
        path = DocLocation & DocFileName
        path = DocLocation & "\" & DocFileName
    End If

   Dim wrdApp As Word.Application
   Dim wrdDoc As Word.Document
    If Dir(path) <> "" Then
           Set wrdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
           wrdApp.Visible = True
           Set wrdDoc = wrdApp.Documents.Open(path)
           wrdDoc.Application.WindowState = wdWindowStateMaximize
            MsgBox ("There is no Document for this project"), vbOKOnly, "Message"
    End If

At the moment wdWindowsState is maximised, I have tried Normal When I run word opens in the background (Underneath the opening form)
Before I introduced the line wdWindowsState word would open minimised. I just want word to allways open over the access form. I have made form Popup and model = no. If I transfer the code and run access 2003 there is no problems. Any help appreciated
