 Make VB let go of Excel?

Here's a short description of what happens.  VB starts, sends data and stops
Excel as needed. User has a vast library of Excel files that contain
configuration and data of previous tests that logged data from I/O card.
User chooses old Excel file that is similar to test getting ready to run.
Excel is started, name changed and saved as new test. Data is logged and
Excel is saved at end of test.  If user changes filename and runs new test
then ALL OK.  However if user chooses another old Excel file, I get
application error.

I can't seem to make VB let go of Excel completely.  If I look in task
manager (CTL-ALT-DEL) I see that Excel is still running.  What is wrong?

Here are my code snippets.......

--------------- Start Excel --------------------
    ' Configure and launch Excel
    Set xlApp = New excel.Application
    Set xlBook = xlApp.Workbooks.Add
    Set xlSheet = xlBook.Worksheets("Sheet1")
    Set xlWindow = xlApp.ActiveWindow
    xlApp.Visible = True
--------------- Stop Excel ---------------------
    Set xlApp = Nothing
    Set xlBook = Nothing
    Set xlSheet = Nothing
    Set xlWindow = Nothing
