Close Event

Occurs when a document is closed.

Private Sub Document_Close()


If the event procedure is stored in a template, the procedure will run when a new document based on that template is closed and when the template itself is closed (after being opened as a document).

For information about using events with a Document object, see Using Events with the Document Object.


This example makes a backup copy of the document on a file server when the document is closed. (The procedure can be stored in the ThisDocument class module of a document or its attached template.)

Private Sub Document_Close()
    ThisDocument.SaveAs "\\network\backup\" & ThisDocument.Name
End Sub
