MS Word as a reporting tool. Winword.exe doesn't close

Title is pretty self-explanatory.

I'm using version 11 in my project's reference section (Vbasic 6.0) although, with the purpose to get an all-version compatible program, I'm actually using late-binding:

    Dim WordApp As Object
    Dim WordDoc As Object

    Set WordApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    Set WordDoc = CreateObject("Word.Document")


When the word template is filled I do the following for closing:

    WordDoc.Close
   
    WordApp.Quit
    Set WordDoc = Nothing
    Set WordApp = Nothing

But the winword.exe process isn't killed. In fact after generating several reports the same number of instances remain open, consuming more and more resources (loke 10M per instance)

Am I missing someting?

Ty in advance.
