Switch focus between multiple word applications

    Hi,

    I would like to copy text from word document A to word document B using VBA.

    The problem is, that document B is always in another word-application than document A (so in the task manager I see 2 WINWORD.EXE lines).

    Is there any way to switch focus between the 2 applications, without having to close one of the applications?

    Thanks in advance,
    Remco

    I don't think there is a way to control two instances of Word via VBA... You
    could try asking in the programming forum in the Microsoft Community
    (http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...postedBefore=&threadType=All&tm=1390951472367)
    or possibly in the Word Developer forum at MSDN
    (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/home?forum=worddev).
