If download of OLE Excel is cancelled then Excel process is not terminated(it is still running in task manager)



I have written an ABAP program, which creates and formats an excel sheet via OLE.

I have set visible to 0, as I do not want to see the operations on the excel.

At the end of the program, I am calling FILE_SAVE_DIALOG FM, so that I can specify a filepath to where the excel can be downloaded to.

Then I am calling method of sheet "SaveAs", and passing the above filepath.

Then I close, quit and free the objects.

It is working completely fine, the excel is downloaded and the task manager process is closed.

But in the FILE_SAVE_DIALOG pop up, if I click "CANCEL" button, the excel process still keeps running in the task manager. I close,quit,and free the objects regardless of whether the user chooses save or cancel.

So why is the process still running?
