Cannot quit Microsoft Office Excel.
This message can appear for the following reasons:
Microsoft Office Excel is attempting to close with an invalid value in a cell.
An OLE operation has not completed (such as an ActiveX control or an embedded program or Object).
Excel is in print preview mode.
A Microsoft Visual Basic macro is running in step mode (a form of testing and debugging that takes place within the VBA editor).
Excel is trying to load a file.
A dialog box is open (usually behind the application, where you can't see it).
To avoid this message, allow Excel to complete pending tasks, close any open dialog boxes, close the Visual Basic Editor, and close any other programs that use objects embedded in the workbook before you close Excel.
If those steps don't work, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE and click Task Manager. In Windows Task Manager, click the Applications tab, select the open workbook, and then click End Task.
