Default Open & Close Excel file in the background

Hi, I tried ASP to open and close an Excel file in the background, allowing a macro to perform some actions:

         Set objXL = Server.CreateObject("Excel.Application")
         objXL.Visible = False
         objXL.DisplayAlerts = False
         Set objWkb = objXL.Workbooks.Open("C:\test.xls")
         objWkb.Close , True
         Set objWkb = Nothing
         Set objXL = Nothing
But this didn't work, the test file was locked. Any wrong with the code? Thanks in advance.
