    hi guys,
    I want to read some data from each of the files from a directory
    and save it to database.In the time of read operation each excel file is
    open but not close after read from the file. After processing of all
    files the excel is closed.
    here is the code..

    while i<count
    excel = WIN32OLE::new('excel.Application') # create winole Object
    workbook = excel.Workbooks.Open("#{path}") # Open the Excel file
    worksheet = workbook.Worksheets(1) #get hold of the first worksheet
    worksheet.Select # select the worksheet
    title = worksheet.Range('h3')['Value'] #get value of title
    excel.ActiveWorkbook.Close(0) # close the workbook
    excel.Quit() # close Excel file
    excel.Quit() unless excel.nil?

    code end

    For 50/100 or more files, too many number of excel processes are shown
    in the process list of Test manager.The cpu utility becomes 100% and
    memory(RAM) becomes full and computer becomes very slow, almost hung.

    Please review the code where I made mistake.

    please help me.

    You might try calling excel.ole_free after you call excel.Quit()...
