the reason for my desire to reuse open win COM objects aims to use many other COM Objects and winword/excel is just an example anyone knows. Of course in winword you can save the file and open it in a second session.
But I have some scenarios where it would be fine to having let the object opened and just interact with it.
It is just an idea to think about during a coffee break ...

Just curious - why would you need to do this instead of just creating a new
object? The reason I ask is that you can successfully link to currently open
instances of applications (I'm thinking MS Office primarily) to manipulate
them from multiple independent scripts. That is, you can use VBS with
createObject to launch an instance of Excel, say, and get a sheet started,
and then later use another VBS with createObject to add data to the same
worksheet in Excel.

That would be nice! :-)

Sorry, haven't done anything with that... maybe someone else can chime in...
