DocumentBeforeClose Event

DocumentBeforeClose Event

Occurs immediately before any open document closes.

Private Sub object_DocumentBeforeClose(ByVal Doc As Document, Cancel As Boolean)

object   An object of type Application declared with events in a class module. For more information about using events with the Application object, see Using Events with the Application Object.

Doc   The document that's being closed.

Cancel   False when the event occurs. If the event procedure sets this argument to True, the document doesn't close when the procedure is finished.


This example prompts the user for a yes or no response before closing any document. This code must be placed in a class module, and an instance of the class must be correctly initialized in order to see this example work; see Using Events with the Application ObjectUsing Events with the Application Object for directions on how to accomplish this.
