 System.Diagnostics. Process[] excelProcesses = System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcessesByName("EXCEL");

above code will close all the instance of Excel. to close your own instance you need to get the process Id when you will start reading means creating instance of excel to communicate. then you can stop that process only.
