Starting and Quitting Excel

I've seen questions of how to check if Excel is already running.

If the user has already started Excel normally; call this Excel(User),
then vb.net code runs:
myXL = CreateObject("E xcel.applicatio n")

Does this new instance of Excel(VB) work completely separate from the
Excel(User)? If yes, why is there a need to check if Excel is running?

When ending the Excel(VB), is there a way to quit this instance and
leave the Excel(User) instance if it's still active?

Thanks,
George

Did you have a look at the articles about Excel automation at the
Microsoft support site?

Please help. I am using object.quit in an attempt to quit an excel application that I started with createobject ("Excel.Application"). The code executes, but does not stop the application. When I run the exact same code for Access and Word, it works fine (app closes). Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Mike Sweet

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
