The only queries that remain open after running are the "SELECT" ones, the simple select query and the cross tab. You would only run these to view the data, and so you wouldn't want code to close them as they'd close as soon as run. Typically a user would close them using the X at the top right of a screen having reviewed the data.
 
The only other place you'd use them would be to populate a recordset, listbox or similar, but you don't open them for that.
