Posting a sample of the code you are using would help.  Generally you should be using something like:

    Private m_oExcel As Excel.Application

    Private Sub Form_Load()

        Set m_oExcel = New Excel.Application

        '// Code here to open your workbook, etc

    End Sub

    Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)

        Dim i As Integer
        '// Close all open workbooks
        For i = 1 To m_oExcel.Workbooks.Count
        Next i

        '// Exit Excel
        Set m_oExcel = Nothing

    End Sub

Hope this helps.

Private m_oExcel As Excel.Application
