 Running Programs in DOS Shell

I am writing a program in VBA that calls another program in DOS to be
run interatively.  I have it so that it calls the program and keeps it
minimized, but everytime the DOS program restarts the DOS shell becomes
the focused window so if I am typing in Word, the cursor is moved to the
DOS shell.  Is there a way to make it so the program is called in DOS
totally in the background?

You may want to look into the IWShell objects surfaced by...Microsoft
Scripting Runtime (?).  These objects not only give you Shell()
functionality to run other apps, but also let you control whether those
other apps are to be run synchronously and visibly.
