Finding out which process is opening excel sheets

Hi,
   I have around 10 windows scheduler task running few processes that does processing with excels file. One of the scheduler is raising a weird kind of problem. All these have different logics. Till last week everything was going fine and it started all of a sudden from last week. This is occassional i.e. occurs once or twice a day. The schedulers run 24 hours.
Problem:- A scheduler is opening excel files but couldn't close them. so in task manager I could see 200+ excel.exe being opened. I want to know which scheduler is opening the file. Is there a way around I can find out the process associated with the excel.exe i.e. the parent process opening the excels?

I don't think this is an Excel question, and should be put into the Excel forum. It's more like a Windows Task Scheduler question. As you might meet such a situation with any .exe file, not just Excel one.

Process explorer always helps me find what process is up to what.
A great tool!
