Workbook.Close Method

Closes the workbook.

Namespace: Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel
Assembly: Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel (in microsoft.office.tools.excel.dll)

public virtual void Close (
	[OptionalAttribute] Object SaveChanges,
	[OptionalAttribute] Object Filename,
	[OptionalAttribute] Object RouteWorkbook
)

Parameters

SaveChanges

If there are no changes to the workbook, this argument is ignored. If there are changes to the workbook and the workbook appears in other open windows, this argument is ignored. If there are changes to the workbook but the workbook does not appear in any other open windows, this argument specifies whether changes should be saved, as shown in the following list.

  • true. Saves the changes to the workbook. If there is not yet a file name associated with the workbook, then FileName is used. If FileName is omitted, the user is asked to supply a file name.

  • false. Does not save the changes to the workbook.

  • Omitted. Displays a dialog box asking the user whether or not to save changes.

Filename

Save changes under this file name.

RouteWorkbook

If the workbook does not need to be routed to the next recipient (if it has no routing slip or has already been routed), this argument is ignored. Otherwise, Microsoft Office Excel routes the workbook as shown in the following list.

  • true. Sends the workbook to the next recipient.

  • false. Does not send the workbook.

  • Omitted. Displays a dialog box asking the user whether the workbook should be sent.

Closing a workbook using this method does not run any Auto_Close macros in the workbook. Use the RunAutoMacros method to run the macros.

Optional Parameters

For information on optional parameters, see Understanding Optional Parameters in COM Interop.

The following code example uses the Close method to close the current workbook without saving any changes.

private void WorkbookClose()
{
    this.Close(false, false, missing);
}
