How to hide Excel When processing a Word.Chart In Word

    Dear experts,

    I hope to creat charts in Microsoft Word. I know Microsoft Office 2007
    SP2 and Office 2010 provide the new object model Wor.Chart. Everything
    is good except the Microsoft Excel always appears. The Microsoft Excel
    will appear when I run ChartData.Activate. I just can hide the
    Microsoft Excel after this step. Is there any way to hide Microsoft
    Excel during the whole processing?

    The code:

    Dim wdApplication As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Application =
    Dim wdDocument As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Document = Nothing
    Dim wdChart As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Chart = Nothing
    Dim xlWorkbook As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Workbook = Nothing

    wdChart = wdDocument.InlineShapes(1).Chart
    With wdChart.ChartData
    .Activate() ' Microsoft Excel will appear. This is the problem.
    xlWorkbook = .Workbook
    End With
    If xlWorkbook Is Nothing Then
    Exit Function
    End If
    With xlWorkbook.Application
    .Visible = False ' Hide Microsoft Excel
    .ScreenUpdating = False
    ' Put data into Worksheets
    End With
