WD97: Using ExitWindows Macro Command to Exit Windows From Word

Last reviewed: August 27, 1997
Article ID: Q170353

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word 97 for Windows

SUMMARY

You can use the ExitWindows macro command to exit Microsoft Windows from Microsoft Word.

If you run a macro that includes the ExitWindows command, Word does NOT prompt you to save the document or global, glossary, or command changes. As a result, document modifications, glossaries, macros, and even the macro that calls the ExitWindows command can be lost if you run the ExitWindows command.

To use this command within Word and be prompted to save changes made during the current session, use an AutoExit macro to exit Windows when you exit Word. The AutoExit macro runs each time you exit Word.

Microsoft provides examples of Visual Basic for Applications procedures for illustration only, without warranty either expressed or implied, including, but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability and/or fitness for a particular purpose.

The Visual Basic procedures in this article are provided 'as is' and Microsoft does not guarantee that they can be used in all situations. While Microsoft support engineers can help explain the functionality of a particular macro, they will not modify these examples to provide added functionality, nor will they help you construct macros to meet your specific needs.

If you have limited programming experience, you may want to consult one of the Microsoft Solution Providers. Solution Providers offer a wide range of fee-based services, including creating custom macros. For more information about Microsoft Solution Providers, call Microsoft Customer Information Service at (800) 426-9400.

The following sample Visual Basic for Applications macro allows you to exit Windows and still be prompted to save any changes made during the current session:

  1. On the Tools menu, point to Macro, and click Macros.
  2. In the Macro Name box, type "AutoExit" (without the quotation marks), and then click Create.
  3. Type "Tasks.ExitWindows" (without the quotation marks) on the line between Sub AutoExit() and End Sub. The complete macro should resemble the following:

       Sub AutoExit()
       '
       'Macro created <date created> by <User Name>
       '
          Tasks.ExitWindows
       End Sub
    
  4. On the File menu, click "Close and Return to Microsoft Word."

For more information about the ExitWindows command, from the Visual Basic Editor, click the Office Assistant, type "ExitWindows" (without the quotation marks), click Search, and then click to view the "ExitWindows Method" topic.
