Hi All,

I hope some one may be able to come up with a solution to this one.

I create and open a word document from a form and then use .Activate to bring it to the front like so:

System.IO.File.WriteAllBytes(Directory.GetCurrentDirectory() &
"\document.docx", Document)

Dim WordApp As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Application

WordApp.Documents.Open(Directory.GetCurrentDirectory() &
"\document.docx", ReadOnly:=True)

WordApp.Visible =
True

'bring Word to the front
WordApp.Activate()


So, with word 2007 it works fine, with 2013 (on Win 8) the icon just flashes at the bottom. Does anyone know how I can change this to come to the front instead?

Much thanks
