I need to run a procedure that will delete all the tables and table links in my mdb file when the application closes.  Where is the best place to trigger this?  Is there an application On_Close event?

Thanks,
Lynn

" Is there an application On_Close event?"
Unfortunately, no.  This feature has been requested many times.

One way is to have a hidden form that opens with your app.  Then, in the UnLoad event of that form you can run your code to do whatever you need.

If your database exits abnormally, your procedure would not run.

Are you trying to set the database up for the next session?

It seems like the most reliable time to do this would be at startup rather than exit/closing.

You can open the Form like this ... possibly from an Auto Exec macro that runs start up code ... or directly in the Macro as an Action.

DoCmd.OpenForm "YourFormName",,,,,acHidden

Ok, I've got the form opening up in hidden mode, but now the DoCmd.Close "frmHiddenForm" is erroring out with a "type mismatch".

I think you want:
Docmd.Close acForm,"frmHiddenForm"
