How close an open Excel file with code

An expert helped me figure out how to run a routine yesterday via the following code.  But the Excel file opens and displays.  But I want to close the Excel file right after it opens programmatically.

What do I have to add to the code to do this?

Find the line:

   appExcel.Visible = True

change to:

   appExcel.Visible = True
   appExcel.Quit
