for this please help me out.


1) Are you instantiating Excel server-side in VB.NET / C# etc, or
client-side using JavaScript / VBScript and ActiveX / WSH?

2) What version of Excel?

3) Please post the code you use to instantiate Excel and open the
workbook(s), plus the code you're using to (try to) kill it.

I'm using C# to instantiate Excel on server side.
Excel version is 9.0
Below is the code written for Excel.
Excel.Applicati onClass oXL = new Excel.Applicati onClass();
oXL.WindowState =Excel.XlWindow State.xlMaximiz ed;
oXL.ShowWindows InTaskbar =true;

//oXL.WindowActiv ate +=Microsoft.Off ice.Interop.Exc el.AppEvents_Wi ndowActivateEve ntHandler;
//oXL.Windows =Microsoft.Offi ce.Interop.Exce l.Windows;
oXL.EnableEvent s=true;
oXL.Visible=tru e;

//oXL.ShowStartup Dialog=true;
//oXL.DisplayExce l4Menus = true;
int hwndExcel;
oXL.Visible=tru e;
oXL.WindowState =Excel.XlWindow State.xlMaximiz ed;
oXL.Caption = "Some Caption For Excel Window";
hwndExcel = MyApi.FindWindo w("XLMAIN",oXL. Caption);
string Excelstr1 = hwndExcel.ToStr ing();

System.Diagnost ics.Process [] processArr2=Sys tem.Diagnostics .Process.GetPro cessesByName("E xcel");
int process2cnt,pro cessid=100000;
for(process2cnt =0;process2cnt< processArr2.Len gth;process2cnt ++)
{
if(processArr2[process2cnt].MainWindowHand le.ToString()== Excelstr1)
{
processid=proce ssArr2[process2cnt].Id;
//processArr2[process2cnt].Kill();
break;
}
}
// Form1 oform1 =new Form1();
//pid=oform1.GetP rocessID(oXL);
//ewclass oewclass =new ewclass();
//pid=oewclass.Ge tProcessID(oXL) ;

if(pid!=100000)
//{
Process.GetProc essById(pid).Ki ll();
}
}

It's not recommended that you create Excel isntances from a server process
like this. Excel wasn't designed for this. However, I do go over the
techniques involved in this article in case you feel like breaking the
rules. As you'll see, killing the Excel process requires a lot of code.
The article also covers other techniques that are less likely to cause
problems.

Hi all, I'm trying to access the most recent instance of Excel so I can paste data. What works for me is if Excel isn't already opened, I open it and can paste the data where I want to. What isn't working for me is if there are multiple instances of Excel open. I'll explain: Say I have 3 instances of Excel opened, each with one workbook. Instance 1 = Book1, instance 2 = Book2, and instance 3 = Book3. I want to paste my data to Book3,...
