VB.Net And API Problem

VB.Net And API Problem

VB.Net And API Problem

Hi, I have a vb.net Parent form which contains a child form, on the click of a button on the child Microsoft Excel is opened and, using some API calls and the handle of Excel and the vb.net Parent Form, Excel is then set as a child of the vb.net Parent.

The problem I am having is that when you minimize my application and then click on the taskbar to restore my application it is restored and given focus but remains behind the currently open windows, I suspect it is because I have these two applications (Mine and Excel) 'tied' together and it is having problems restoring both, does anyone have any ideas as to how I can solve this problem.
