I want to CHAIN four different Excel macros. But instead of going through them step by step, the programs executes all four programs one after the other within a few seconds!!! Am I doing something wrong??

1) The excel task is one which is not controlled by engine. It is started
via DDE but cannot be terminated or checked on by the engine. So, in a
chain, you should use a Delay task step between successive excel runs.

2) If you need to shut down / kill excel after a macro runs, please read the following:
