In MS Access I want to first check to see if Excel is open.  If so, check to see if a certain workbook is already open.  If not open it, otherwise set the open workbook as the active workbook.

Here is what I have so far.  Almost there but if it is already open it gives a warning about re-opening an open workbook.

Private Function UpdateCrisisChart()
Dim xls As Object
Dim wrk As Object
Dim Sheet As Object
Dim strExcelFile As String
        
    If IsExcelRunning Then
        Set xls = GetObject(, "Excel.Application")
    Else
        Set xls = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    End If
    
    xls.Visible = True
    
    strExcelFile = GetExcelFilename(Me.SDate, "Adult")
    Set wrk = xls.Workbooks.Open(strExcelFile)
        
End Function
