What I want to do is use 1 script to write to an Excel File on one sheet. After this is complete I want a second script to write additional data to a different sheet on the same file. I am getting errors when I try to perform the second write because xlswrite returns a message that says the file is now write locked. How can I get past this problem?

Did you make sure that the file is not open?
xlswrite() actually launches Excel and tries to open the file. So if you have the file already opened in Excel, even though you launched it via ActiveX, you won't be able to write to it because the ActiveX process has ahold of it.
