Application.Quit method (Excel)

Quits Microsoft Excel.



expression A variable that represents an Application object.


If unsaved workbooks are open when you use this method, Excel displays a dialog box asking whether you want to save the changes. You can prevent this by saving all workbooks before using the Quit method or by setting the DisplayAlerts property to False. When this property is False, Excel doesn't display the dialog box when you quit with unsaved workbooks; it quits without saving them.

If you set the Saved property for a workbook to True without saving the workbook to the disk, Excel will quit without asking you to save the workbook.


This example saves all open workbooks and then quits Excel.
