Sorry to post again so soon but is it possible to open excel using the
command

		winexec "C:\program files\microsoft office\office\excel.exe"


but keep stata in the foreground as the main active window.  The reason for
this is that I open different out files in Excel during a do file, but need
to have stata on the screen until the do-file has finished.

Thanks again for your time,

Christopher D Fergusson
