Yah of course
We can kill with Kill process activity with process name property as “ACROBAT”
Or to get the right name go to task manager and check with pdf application and get the process name before .exe and use it in the property panel of kill process

while giving the path of the pdf file after converting, you can see there is a box - “open file after publishing” , uncheck that box .
Now pdf will not open after getting converted from excel.


Not working still the application is open on my desktop bro.

Thanks bro that what I need. I didn’t see this option
Thanks to Palani bro it resolved.
