I am using some very basic code to test my app where i open a Excel Workbook, count the nbr of sheets in beginning
then delete 1 sheet and then count sheets again and save. For some reason i can not actually delete sheet, the sheet
count is same before and after delete and after save the sheet is still in work book. Hope someone can see what i am doing wrong here

Dim oExcel As Object = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Dim oBook As Object = oExcel.Workbooks.Open("C:\Users\Documents\acme.xls")

Dim oSheet As Object = oBook.Worksheets(2)

MsgBox(oBook.Worksheets.count)

oSheet.Delete()

MsgBox(oBook.Worksheets.count)

oBook.SaveAs("C:\Users\Documents\ACME-New.xls",)
oExcel.Quit()

Open in new window
