    It's been a while, but i think it goes like this:
    Code:
    dim thedoc as object
    set thedoc = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    thedoc.Documents.Open FileName:="c:\urfile.doc"
    thedoc.Visible = True
    thedoc.Active
    A mind full of questions has no room for answers

    using the shellexecute function should work too !!

    Code:
    ShellExecute hwnd, "open", "c:\the\word_file.doc", vbNullString, vbNullString, SW_SHOW
    you might need to declare some stuff

    Code:
    Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long
    Private Const SW_SHOW = 5
    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI.

    Only one problem with this code:

    thedoc.Active

    should be changed to

    thedoc.Activate

    Later,
