Windows 7: Problem with using Task Scheduler to open Excel file

Problem with using Task Scheduler to open Excel file


I want to use the Task Scheduler to open an Excel file. The Excel file contains a macro that automatically runs when the file is opened. At the end of the routine the macro saves the file and closes the Excel application using the following commands:

When I open this excel file in a normal way, such as double-clicking on the file, the macro runs successfully and Excel closes. However, when I use the Task Scheduler to open the excel file, the Excel Application does not close when the routine is finished.

Note that Iíve tried using the Task Scheduler to open this Excel file on other computers that are running the 64 bit version of Windows 7 and it works flawlessly. Iím only having this issue on a computer that is running the 32 bit version. Any ideas?
