    Closing a window using VBA

    Hi guys

    I wonder if anyone can help.
    I am trying to close a single excel window using the below code, however it doesn't seem to be doing anything. It works if I want to close say a notepad window, but not Excel.

    Alternatively, I could use "ActiveWindow.Close", if somehow it could find another instance of excel that is open.
    If excel has opened another program of excel, I cannot use "Windows("text work.csv").Activate" to find the workbook. If there is another way to activate it, then this could work?

    Thanks to anybody that can help me.

    If you know the file path, you could use GetObject to get a reference to the workbook, then close that.
