I am linking to an Excel workbook from my access application using VBA.  Below is the code I use to both link to, and close the Excel workbook.  But, a new instance of Excel still runs in the background for everytime I run the import.  Help!

Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Set dOpen = xlApp.Dialogs(xlDialogActivate)
bOpen = xlApp.Dialogs(xlDialogOpen).Show

...
...
...

xlApp.Quit
Set xlApp = Nothing

TRy this instead:

On Error Resume Next
Set xlApp = GetObject(,"Excel.Application")
On Error Goto ErrorHandler
If xlApp Is Nothing Then Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Set dOpen = xlApp.Dialogs(xlDialogActivate)
bOpen = xlApp.Dialogs(xlDialogOpen).Show

...
...
...

xlApp.Quit
Set xlApp = Nothing

We use the GetObject function to get if an instance of Excel Application is loaded in memory or not.
