I have a macro that I've been working on for a while now that basically pastes a document as unformatted text, and reapplies formatting, footnotes, everything. I'm using the Range property to copy paragraphs and everywhere else. Toward the end if the macro I'm closing old document, reopening it (invisible to end-user) and evaluating more formats.
The problem is when the macro is done, my new document is not active. I've set my ranges to nothing, told new document to activate, but nothing works. I can see the document, but can't type, use arrows. Word just beeps at me. My toolbars are not active either. If I click another document or application on the task bar and come back to my new document, then it becomes active.
