Closing Excel from VBA

Posted by Jason Daniels on November 08, 2000 3:14 PM

Does anyone know how to close excel from a macro. I know how to close a workbook, but am looking to automate some reporting (java calling excel with macros to format input file then save report out) and don't want to leave the excel process up all the time.

Thanks for your help!

You should be able to close Excel with the following :-


However, be careful. If you have add-ins that need to run some Auto_Close code, it might cause Excel to crash.
Also, do not put any code after Application.Quit since it will probably not be run.
So, if required, make sure you put code to save all workbooks before Application.Quit
