I opened log files under Notepad using VB. Now, in the form_unload I want the program to close everything that it opened. Is it possible to close Notepad or Word, etc, and how?

Highlight all by clicking in box
'This is my code to open the log file: 
Shell "Notepad C:log.txt", vbNormalFocus

'too close

Private Declare Function FindWindow Lib "user32" _
Alias "FindWindowA" (ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal _
lpWindowName As String) As Long

Private Declare Function PostMessage Lib "user32" _
Alias "PostMessageA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As _
Long, ByVal wParam As Long, ByVal lParam As Long) As Long

Private Const WM_CLOSE = &H10
Private Const WM_DESTROY = &H2

Highlight All
Private Sub Command1_Click()

hWin = FindWindow("notepad", vbNullString)
If hWin <> 0 Then
PostMessage hWin, WM_CLOSE, 0, 0
PostMessage hWin, WM_DESTROY, 0, 0
End If

End Sub;
