Switching between active windows with VBA

Switching between active windows with VBA

I'm not certain whether this question belongs in Access or in Office, but I have a project involving an Access form and a Word window. I know how to switch the focus to the Word window using the Activate method, but I want to be able to automatically return the focus to the Access form(make it the active window) without closing the Word window. Can anyone suggest something?

For Each myTask In Tasks
If InStr(myTask.Name, "Access") > 0 Then
myTask.WindowState = wdWindowStateNormal
End If
Next myTask

Of course Access must be the in the Systray
