can't bring Outlook dialog window to foreground with Office 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to switch the focus to an Outlook dialog pop-up, but haven't been able to get that to work.

        Set olDialog = olApp.Session.GetSelectNamesDialog

    If anyone knows how to bring the Outlook dialog window to the foreground on a Windows 7 64 bit computer running 32 bit Office 2013, I'd love to hear from them. It seems to work ok with Office 2010, but not Office 2013.

  • Is Outlook running at the time your code is executing?

    Does it work if you bring Outlook to the foreground first by calling Application.ActiveExplorer.Activate?
