An Auto_Close procedure is an automatic procedure stored in a workbook that runs automatically when the workbook is closed. You can place automatic procedures in any Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications module in the workbook. A workbook-level automatic procedure is identified by its name (that is, Auto_Close or Auto_Open) as it appears in the module.

This article assumes that you are familiar with the programming language that is being demonstrated and with the tools that are used to create and to debug procedures. Microsoft support engineers can help explain the functionality of a particular procedure, but they will not modify these examples to provide added functionality or construct procedures to meet your specific requirements. To create an Auto_Close procedure, name the procedure "Sub Auto_Close()" (without the quotation marks). You can only have one Auto_Close procedure per workbook. If you have multiple Auto_Close macros in a workbook, none of them run.
To create an Auto_Close procedure:
Auto_Close procedures run just before the workbook closes. You may want to use this type of procedure to restore menu bars or toolbars, or to close and save workbooks.
