Switching to a specified open application window...

P: n/a
MLH
I seem to remember a post in the distant past
discussing how to switch to another open application
window. IE, if WordPad is running, some API function
that'll allow me to switch the focus to that application?

Ring any bells with anyone? I have searched Google
for "switching to an open application from code" and
"switching applications". But all I found were a few
blurbs about ALT-TAB.

AppActivate WILL work for me, but only if I suspend
code processing for about 3 seconds while other running
apps complete certain of their tasks and THEN execute
AppActivate. I have a later post on the subject giving
specific details.
