Memory MGMT in Excel VBA ???

How do I clean up memory in Excel VBA? I've tried setting objects to "Nothing" but I get an error stating that this is an invalid use of an object.

My VBA Macro calls a third party API which returns numerous strings that are huge in size. The Excel workbook end up taking up 60-80 mb of RAM. How can I get excel to release all objects?

If the API returns strings, then the only thing you can do is set the string variables equal to vbnullstring or "". Other than that and setting objects to Nothing, control over memory management is pretty much non-existent in VBA.
