Are you referring to an run-time created object?

Set MyObjectVariable = Nothing

The above should destroy the object and release memory. Replace variable with the one you're using.

Are you talking about the "End" in Excel VBA?
This won't close Excel, as it's just supposed to end the VBA-program(!!).
To close Excel from Excel-VBA use Application.Quit.

Further to Steiner's response...


If you have code in VB to create an instance of the MS-Excel object, thus:

  Dim objExcel                                          As Object
 
  Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
 
  objExcel.Visible = True

...

Then you'll need to invoke the .Quit method on the created object to close MS-Excel:
 
  objExcel.Quit
 
  Set objExcel = Nothing

Setting the objExcel object to Nothing releases resources in your local application only.
