Automation to 2 Word Documents

P: n/a
I am trying to send information to 2 different MS Word 2000 documents from
automation code in Access 2000. I have simply added an extra transfer text
command and an extra line to open the document with the data text file for
the merge data. What is happening is that only the 2nd of the two letters
is opened. Why doesn't the first one open? Is there a way of having two
(almost) simultaneous Word documents opened from within a module in Access?

The only way I know to do this is to have 2 separate Word Objects.

Set objWord1 = CreateObject("Word.Application")
Set objWord2 = CreateObject("Word.Application")
