Topic: Unable to Delete?!?

After adding freetext annotation to a PDF document using the JSObjext, I cannot delete the file. If I open it with Acrobat and then close it, it wiil then delete.

This is the section of code (VB6) that is causing the problem. Is there something I am forgetting to close?
The file seems to still be active after the program has ended. Therefore, I cannot delete it until I reopen with Acrobat and close it down.

Set jso = AcroExchPDDoc.GetJSObject
If Not jso Is Nothing Then
' Get size for page 0 and setup arrays
Set page = AcroExchPDDoc.AcquirePage(0)
Set pageRect = page.GetSize
point(0) = 0
point(1) = pageRect.y
Rect(0) = 350
Rect(1) = 0
Rect(2) = 600
Rect(3) = 50

' Create a new FreeText annot
Set annot = jso.AddAnnot
Set props = annot.getProps
props.Type = "FreeText"
annot.setProps props

' Fill in Property fields
Set props = annot.getProps = 0
props.TextFont = "OCR-A"
props.Rect = Rect = "Douglas A. Martin"
props.Alignment = 0
props.Width = 0
props.strokeColor =
props.Contents = LockBox
annot.setProps props
End If

bOK = AcroExchPDDoc.Save(1, OutPutFile)
If bOK = False Then
NoticeStatus = 1
End If
AcroExchAVDoc.Close 1
