Application.Quit Does not Close the Application

I'm in the process of automating a workbook for an engineer at our
site. He has a macro written to run some calculations in Excel using
solver.xla and send these values to another server. As it stands now
the macro is accessed by a button on one of the worksheets in the
workbook. What I have been asked to do is setup a scheduled task that
runs every three hours. This task will open the workbook, launch the
macro that writes data to the other server, and then close the
workbook and quit Excel. I have setup the following code on the
Workbook_Open sub:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

'Call Module5.Run_solver

Application.DisplayAlerts = False

ActiveWorkbook.Close

Application.Quit

End Sub

This code works as stated except that the application does not close.
Excel stays open but the workbook closes. I have tried to reverse the
order of the ActiveWorkbook.Close and Application.Quit but the result
is the same. Module5.Run_solver is the macro that was designed by the
engineer. Below is the code for the macro:

Sub Run_solver()
'
' Run_solver Macro
' Macro recorded 5/22/2008 by ****** *******
'
Application.Run "Solver.xla!Auto_Open"

SolverReset
'SolverOk SetCell:="$O$7", MaxMinVal:=3, ValueOf:="0",
ByChange:="$M$9"
SolverOptions Precision:=0.01, Convergence:=0.1
SolverOk SetCell:="$O$7", MaxMinVal:=3, ValueOf:="0", ByChange:="$M
$9"
SolverSolve True

SolverReset
'SolverOk SetCell:="$O$8", MaxMinVal:=3, ValueOf:="0",
ByChange:="$L$9"
SolverOptions Precision:=0.01, Convergence:=0.1
SolverOk SetCell:="$O$8", MaxMinVal:=3, ValueOf:="0", ByChange:="$L
$9"
SolverSolve True

SolverReset
'SolverOk SetCell:="$O$16", MaxMinVal:=3, ValueOf:="0",
ByChange:="$M$18"
SolverOptions Precision:=0.01, Convergence:=0.1
SolverOk SetCell:="$O$16", MaxMinVal:=3, ValueOf:="0",
ByChange:="$M$18"
SolverSolve True

SolverReset
'SolverOk SetCell:="$O$17", MaxMinVal:=3, ValueOf:="0",
ByChange:="$L$18"
SolverOptions Precision:=0.01, Convergence:=0.1
SolverOk SetCell:="$O$17", MaxMinVal:=3, ValueOf:="0",
ByChange:="$L$18"
SolverSolve True

macroResult = Application.Run("PIPutValx", _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("M37").Text, _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("S12"), _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("H2").Value, , _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("N37"))

macroResult = Application.Run("PIPutValx", _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("M38").Text, _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("R12"), _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("H2").Value, , _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("N38"))

macroResult = Application.Run("PIPutValx", _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("M39").Text, _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("L14"), _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("H2").Value, , _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("N39"))

macroResult = Application.Run("PIPutValx", _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("M40").Text, _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("L23"), _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("H2").Value, , _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("N40"))

macroResult = Application.Run("PIPutValx", _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("M41").Text, _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("M14"), _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("H2").Value, , _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("N41"))

macroResult = Application.Run("PIPutValx", _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("M42").Text, _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("M23"), _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("H2").Value, , _
Application.ActiveSheet.Range("N42"))

End Sub

I've seached many resources online and I've tried many different
things but I cannot seem to figure out why Excel will not respond to
the Application.Quit command. Is it possible that I need to close
solver.xla before Excel can be completely closed out? Also, I am
running Excel 2003 with SP3 and all Microsoft security updates and
patches. Any help on this at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

It doesn't work because you are closing the workbook before it can get to
Application.Quit. You could try to deleting the ActiveWorkbook.Close line
and see if that helps you.

Hope this helps! If so, let me know or just click "Yes" below.

Not need to close the workbook just quit Excel.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

'Call Module5.Run_solver
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Application.Quit

End Sub

Thanks for the reply. I tried both suggestions and Excel still will
not close. If I don't use ActiveWorkbook.Close then the everything
stays open after the Macro is run. Does anyone have any other
reccomendations? Could it be that the solver.xla object needs to be
closed before Excel can be closed? Forgive me but I'm very new to VBA
and I'm still trying to learn it. Also, I have tried this in Excel
2000 and I receive the same results (Excel does not close). Any help
at all would be appreciated. I've spent hours trying to find a
resolution and I'm getting rather frustrated. Thanks

Were you ever able to solve this problem, if so how did you do it?

I don't know if the OP solved the problem, but for the Application to close
using Application.Quit, everything that was opened during that instance of
excel must be closed prior to executing the command. If VBA finds anything
at all open in that instance, it will not close the Application.

Adding to that, If there are any objects or object variables that still have
values, then the application will not close, so all object variables should
be Set to Nothing before using Application.Quit.
