End Statement

Ends a procedure or block.

Syntax

End

End Function

End If

End Property

End Select

End Sub

End Type

End With

The End statement syntax has these forms:

Statement

Description

End

Terminates execution immediately. Never required by itself but may be placed anywhere in a procedure to end code execution, close files opened with the Open statement and to clear variables.

End Function

Required to end a Function statement.

End If

Required to end a block If…Then…Else statement.

End Property

Required to end a Property Let, Property Get, or Property Set procedure.

End Select

Required to end a Select Case statement.

End Sub

Required to end a Sub statement.

End Type

Required to end a user-defined type definition (Type statement).

End With

Required to end a With statement.

Remarks

When executed, the End statement resets all module-level variables and all static local variables in all modules. To preserve the value of these variables, use the Stop statement instead. You can then resume execution while preserving the value of those variables.

Note Note

The End statement stops code execution abruptly, without invoking the Unload, QueryUnload, or Terminate event, or any other Visual Basic code. Code you have placed in the Unload, QueryUnload, and Terminate events of forms and class modules is not executed. Objects created from class modules are destroyed, files opened using the Open statement are closed, and memory used by your program is freed. Object references held by other programs are invalidated.

The End statement provides a way to force your program to halt. For normal termination of a Visual Basic program, you should unload all forms. Your program closes as soon as there are no other programs holding references to objects created from your public class modules and no code executing.

This example uses the End Statement to end code execution if the user enters an invalid password.

Sub Form_Load 
 Dim Password, Pword 
 PassWord = "Swordfish" 
 Pword = InputBox("Type in your password") 
 If Pword <> PassWord Then 
 MsgBox "Sorry, incorrect password" 
 EndEnd IfEnd Sub
