Not sure about this, but I do know that using Office COM objects has never been very stable (even using different programming languages). Sometimes the processes don't close properly, which can lead to memory problems on your server if you don't have a way to kill the processes automatically (and then sometimes you might accidentally kill the process while its running).

I would recommend switching to something like:
http://phpclasses.ranchoweb.com/browse/package/767.html
or
http://www.codeplex.com/PHPExcel

I have used the first one very successfully. It reads/writes Excel 97-2003 files natively without COM objects at all. I have not tried the second one yet.
