Hello Experts,

I am calling Excel Application in ASP.NET to create excel file and charts. It is working fine but it is not closing the opened instance of the Excel Application.

I am using the following code to Save the file and close the application.

AppExcel.DisplayAlerts = False
AppExcel.ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs(strFile)
AppExcel.ActiveWorkbook.Close()
AppExcel.Quit()
AppExcel = Nothing

Then I have added another two lines of code

Response.Cache.SetExpires(Now)
Response.Cache.SetCacheability(HttpCacheability.NoCache)

Now the application is closing some time but not always.

Please help me to solve this problem.

Many thanks in advance.

Try to disable ASP sessions and ASP caching. This can be done from IIS menagement console, properties on Default Web-Site, Home Directory, Configuration, App Options.

Hi zlatev,

I have tried all the options you have mentioned but it is not closing the Excel Application.

So that, I have solved the problem by creating a DLL in VB and using the same in ASP.NET. Now it is working fine.

Thanks for your comments.

I agree. It seems to be a configuration problem. However the asker did not succed to solve it by method recommended by me. However s/he has mentioned workaround method that solves the issue.
