I have a task that opens a hidden Excel workbook, and when the task is completed, it closes the workbook.

However, sometimes the task doesn't complete (for various reasons) and it therefore leaves the hidden workbook open.
This, in turn, causes a problem when another task tries to access the workbook.

If the task results in failure, can I use that as a trigger to open another task that closes the workbook?

If not, is there some way to close the workbook if the task doesn't complete?
