Hi all,<BR><BR>I&#039m using SQL Server 2000. From my asp page everytime I generate and Excel report, I have this excel object stuck in the Task Manager. This prevents me from opening up the excel file from the browser and it prompts me to open it as read-only. I am not able to kill the process , reason access denied.<BR><BR>The only way is to reboot the server which is not practical enough because the system I developed is already in used.<BR><BR>Can anybody help me please? I&#039m very desperate..
