If I have two or more Excel sessions running, how do I set a variable object reference to a specific Excel session? Using the Process ID of an Excel session is preferable.

Thanks in advance.

if u have yourself opened the excel sessions from code, u shud have handles to them.

psapi is the option if u want to get the process id and do stuff..

state ur req. more clearly...there might be an easier way out.

Sorry if my question was unclear. I would like to get a specific object reference of one of the Excel sessions (perhaps by the PID) through a Visual Basic application. e.g. GetObject() is not sufficient as it gets the first instance of Excel that was created.
