As long as you're using Excel 2000 onwards just show the form as vbModeless i.e.

UserForm1.Show vbModeless

i'm using xl97, which know you can't have modeless forms in (although i have seen a workaround for this, but couldn't download the 6mb file). is there a piece of code that could tell windows (nt4) to activate excel on the Taskbar. If you do it manually it only brings up the form (what i want).
