Document.Close event (Word)

Occurs when a document is closed.



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, see Using events with the Document object.

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