Visio macro

I have a background page which I would like to update a field in on closing the document. At current I'm using code which updates the document on opening, but it gives an inaccurate impression of when the document was last modified as a result.

I thought all I needed to do was replace
Document_DocumentOpened with Document_BeforeDocumentClose in my code, but that doesn't work, giving a run time eror 91 since I don't have an ActiveDocument. Please help.
Private Sub Document_DocumentOpened(ByVal doc As IVDocument)
    Dim shp As Shape
    Dim pg As Page
    Dim sUsername As String
    sUsername = Environ("username")         ' Windows username
    For Each pg In ActiveDocument.Pages
        If pg.Background = True Then
            For Each shp In pg.Shapes
                    If shp.CellExists("Prop.Username", False) Then
                        shp.Cells("Prop.Username").FormulaU = _
                            Chr(34) & sUsername & Chr(34)
                    End If
        End If
End Sub
