Closing Notepad From ExcelSep 4, 2009
In my spreadsheet, a series of macros calls an external program/application three times.
Each time the program finishes, it (and not Excel, as I formerly thought) opens a resource (*.res) file in Notepad, which of course goes into the taskbar. Since I need to run the spreadsheet seven or eight times in a row, the taskbar can get cluttered quickly.
The program opens three different instances of the same filename: iroutine.res.
Is there a way to get Excel to close these Notepad files (if it's simpler to do, it can kill all instances of Notepad) when it finishes running its routines?
