Document.Close Event (Word)

Occurs when a document is closed.


Private Sub expression _'Close'()

expression A variable that represents a 'Document' object.


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, seeUsing 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() 
 ActiveDocument.SaveAs "\\network\backup\" &; ThisDocument.Name 
End Sub
