Need to bring Excel Window to the front

I have a routine that loops and creates (Saves) a .pdf file with each loop. I have chosen to open each .pdf file as it gets created.

During the loop phase a Msgbox may popup if there is an exception with data in the file. The problem is the excel Window & new popup are hidden behind the previously opened .pdf file windows. Is there a command I can have just prior to the Msgbox code section that will bring the Excel window & popup to the forefront?

I've tried the following, but it doesn't work:
Code:
    Application.WindowState = xlMaximized
    Msgbox "............."

Round to nearest half hour?
Use =MROUND(A2,"0:30") to round to nearest half hour. Use =CEILING(A2,"0:30") to round to next half hour.

I don't know if there is a more direct way, but I found that this works:

Code:
    Application.WindowState = xlMinimized
    Application.WindowState = xlMaximized
    Msgbox "............."
