Hi
I am using createObject() method to open a program. When the program stop running, to close the program, I need to click on any key. Is there a way to use VBA to automate this process?

Thanks for you help

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

Hi,

have you tried using the quit command?

eg. if you have called the object MyProg then MyProg.Quit
