how's this working ?

Dim strFileName As String
Dim AppExcel As Excel.Application
Dim Wb As Excel.Workbook

strFileName = App.Path & "\multiple.xls"
If Dir(strFileName) = "" Then Exit Sub

Set AppExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Set Wb = AppExcel.Workbooks.Add(strFileName)

AppExcel.Visible = True
Set Wb = Nothing
Set AppExcel = Nothing
