Winword will not go away in Access

I have an access application that contains an unbound object frame that shows a Word document.

When the form loads, the following code fills the unbound object frame successfully. This is the code that does that:

Dim WordApp As Word.Application

    Set WordApp = New Word.Application
    Me!OLEUnBound.SourceDoc = sTheCurrentDatabaseDirectory & "BlankDocument.doc"
    Me!OLEUnBound.Action = acOLECreateLink
    Me!OLEUnBound.Requery

On the OnUnload Event of the form, I have:
    Set WordApp = Nothing

After the access application ends, I still have numerous instances of WINWORD in the Task manager.

What am I missing?

You may want to add WordApp.Quit() before you destroy the WordApp object.

You are dimming Winword in a procedure and setting it to nothing in another procedure.
Perhaps, since the object is not declared as a public, global, or in the form's declaration section,
the 'set to nothing' isn't doing anything.

Try placing the Dim WordApp As Word.Application in the form's declaration section.
