Closing the connection to an Excel document

I'm reading in data from an Excel sheet.

I open the connection using arcpy.getParameterAsText(0) then pass that value to a SearchCursor.

When the script completes the Excel file remains in 'read only' mode until I exit ArcMap. I'm executing the python script from the toolbox.

How do i close the connection to the sheet and release it back to being editable?
