Word document that was opened does no remain visible


In reply to what CajunCenturion send me has help with the word file I added the Documents.Close statement to my program. The automation problems is hereby resolved, but the Word.document is opened and immediately closed without seeing it on screen (it flashed by). Is there any program step I can add so that the file remains visible untill I close the document?

RE: Word document that was opened does no remain visible

You might try placing all the code to open Word in one subroutine and all of the close code in another.

How will the program 'know' when it's time to close the Word document?  Add into the program a call to the close routine when the time comes.

Good Luck
