Bring userform in front of all windows

Bring userform in front of all windows

I'm creating a WORD macro to read data from an excel workbook for using in a userform.
The excel sheet needs to stay open.
When I open the userform after the excel application, the form is opened behind the excel application and is not visible.
How do I open the userform in front of all windows ?

RE: Bring userform in front of all windows

What is the userform in? Excel?
It would help to see your code.

RE: Bring userform in front of all windows

No, the userform is in WORD.
Opening an excel application within the userform will take the userform to the background (behind the excel application).
I've solved the problem now by opening the excel application hidden...


xlApp.Visible = False
