Switch Documents

Are you working with a lot of opened Microsoft® Word documents? This macro can be used to switch quickly between documents. In addition this macro shows the document name in the status bar.
tested with MS-Word 2000, 2003 and the ribbon in office 2010. Seems to be a great idea as this functionality is now build into Office 2013.
