I'm making a small program that I can see my ".doc" files without having to navigate to each folder they're in. I have a number of them that I have in 3 different locations {including an external drive} and prefer they remain that way.

Anyway, the program is mostly done except for a small problem.

When I have ANY MS Word document open and active I want my program to be "Always On Top" but would like it to Minimize/Hide when I minimize a document. If I have more than one document open and a 2nd becomes active then I want my program to remain up. Then I'd like it to return when any MS Word document becomes active. Also to close when MS Word is completely closed.

I can create a couple Macros in VBA to Minimize & Restore my program using the "Tasks" command then put those in a couple buttons. I'll probably do that for now, however I'd rather it did this on it's own if at all possible.

If there is a way that this can be done in VBA automatically {without me having to press a macro button I mean} that would be good too - though preferable to be coded into my program if at all possible.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Peace to you and yours,
Matthew "Dra'Gon" Stohler
