Event that runs only when clicking "close" button (red "X" in upper right of window)

Good morning,

  I am currently writing a program using VBA (essentially a front end for an Access database).  I was wondering if there are any events that run only when clicking a "close" button (the red "X" in the upper right hand corner of the form)?

  At the moment, I have a button on my form called "cmdExit" that allows the user to completely exit the database.  When the user clicks this button, the following code runs:

Private Sub cmdExit_Click()

    DoCmd.Quit

End Sub

I would like to have the same code run when I press the "X" button.

I have tried running this code on form unload and close, but obviously, these fire each time I navigate to a new form, not just when I press the "X" button.  Any help would be much appreciated.  Thank you for your time.

What you are asking about is the VB 6 Form_QueryUnload event - which has, as a parameter, the UnloadMode which can serve to indicate that the Form is being unloaded as a result of the user clicking the Close button (Red X in the upper right corner).  The forms engine used for Access is NOT the same engine as used by VB6, and thus, the events raised by the form is quite different in the two environments.  VB6 forms are not the same 'thing' as VBA forms created in Access.  

There is no Access Form event that can serve to give you the control that you are asking for.
