Pop up message box on close in Excel

Using Excel 2013. I need to have a message box pop up when a user (namely, me) closes the particular Excel spreadsheet. I just need a message box to pop up with a message and an OK button, regardless of whether or not I've saved the spreadsheet prior to closing it.

I tried using John Walkenbach's code utilizing the Beforeclose event but it didn't work for me. Not sure how to use it correctly, I suppose.



RE: Pop up message box on close in Excel

You can find some information about Handling The Workbook Beforeclose Event here

I guess the trick is that "This procedure must be in the code module for the ThisWorkbook object."

Have fun.

There is a great need for a sarcasm font.

Please post the entire procedure for the Workbook_Beforeclose Event here.
