I am having a periodic issue where following the end of an Excel Application Scope activity it doesn’t close Excel. I have added a Close Workbook activity following the end of the application scope and it doesn’t help. It also will never time out. I have to go into Task Manager, kill the Excel process and the workflow continues.
This doesn’t happen every time but it is not uncommon. (~10%-20%).
I ended up putting in a Kill Process activity in another workflow to address the issue but do not like that solution as that sometimes leaves Windows thinking that the file is still open and it cannot be reopened.
