I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I don't know if this is enough for you, but you can use:

Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)

End Sub

That will load at shutdown, however it wont tell you if it was caused by exit or shutdown.

Or also you can do:

Private Sub Form_QueryUnload(Cancel As Integer, UnloadMode As Integer)
    'UnloadMode possibilities:
    '0   The user has chosen the Close command from the Control-menu box on the form.
    '1   The Unload method has been invoked from code.
    '2   The current Windows-environment session is ending.
    '3   The Microsoft Windows Task Manager is closing the application.
    '4   An MDI child form is closing because the MDI form is closing.
End Sub

Where shutdown will trigger this with an UnloadMode of 2
