Checking To See Is Excel Is Currently Running
Posted on 2004-11-01
I need to check to see if Excel is currently running using PB.
VB offers the options of using both CreateObject("Excel.Application") and GetObject(, "Excel.Application").
I can use VB's GetObject to determine if an instance of Excel is running, and if not, then I can use VB's Createobject and be assure that I only have one instance open at that time.
I am also interested in using an existing instance as the default server to create and attach an OLEObject to it.
