Default Is it possible to Shell and remove Excel from memory?


Hi,

Here is my code for sorting my phone database:

Sub Sort1()
Range("A1").Select
Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("A2"), _
Order1:=xlAscending, Key2:=Range("B2"), _
Order2:=xlAscending, Header:=xlGuess, _
OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:= _
False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom

ActiveWorkbook.Save
SendKeys "%{F4}"
s$ = Shell("C:\Documents and Settings\Alain\Bureau\ _
MyDialer.exe", vbNormalFocus)
End Sub

After editing, sorting and saving my database, I want to run my Dialer.
It is working fine except that Excell stay in memory. I can see that on
the Task Manager.

Is there a way to remove it from memory after saving? I use Excel 97.

Thanks!

Alain

Yes, Application.Quit! Should work but it is not in my code. Excel is
not quitting.

Anyway, I found a way to do it. Instead of running my dialer from the
Shell directly, I shell to a Batch file that call my dialer. In that
case, Application.Quit is working fine.

Try this

Try

....

Finally
NAR(m_objSheet)
m_objSheet = Nothing
NAR(objWorkbook) ' This is required - MS Excel has an inherent bug.
objWorkbook = Nothing
objExcel.Quit()
NAR(objExcel)
objExcel = Nothing
End Try
....

Private Sub NAR(ByVal objExcelRelated As Object)
Try

System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ReleaseComO bject(objExcelRelated)
Catch
Finally
objExcelRelated = Nothing
End Try
End Sub
