access 2007 timer

I have a timer on hidden form that shuts down my application at 7 pm each evening for updates.  The problem i am having when users tries logon again the application justs keep shutting down because the timer event has already past  Is there anyway to disable the timer event after a period of time through code?  Currently I have to hold  down the shift key(11) to keep that application from closing. I have attached a copy my code below.

create a table (tblShutDownInfo) with a DateTime Field [varDate] and a YesNo field named [ShutDown]

at the startUp of your db, compare the current date with the value of varDate
If dlookup("varDate","tblShutDownInfo") < Date then
' update the table
   currentdb.execute "update tblShutDownInfo set vardate=Date(), Shutdown=-1"

end if

in your Timer event
check the values of table tblShutDownInfo..

If dlookup("varDate","tblShutDownInfo") = Date And dlookup("ShutDown","tblShutDownInfo")=True  then
   'update the table
    currentdb.execute "update tblShutDownInfo set  Shutdown=0"

   'run shutdown codes here

end if


got the idea?

Can not figure why the shutdown field is not updating? Set the field to a yes/no field but the table never gets updated. A set the vardate field to yesterday and it updates with no problem with the current date.

Private Sub Form_Timer()
  Dim dtCloseTime As Date
    Dim dtCurTime As Date


If DLookup("varDate", "tblShutDownInfo") = Date And DLookup("ShutDown", "tblShutDownInfo") = True Then
   'update the table
    CurrentDb.Execute "update tblShutDownInfo set  ShutDown=0"

   'run shutdown codes here
   dtCloseTime = Format(#11:19:05 PM#, "hh:MM:ss")
   dtCurTime = Format(Time(), "hh:mm:ss")
   
   If dtCurTime > dtCloseTime Then
    Call ExitApplication
   End If


End If

I must be missing something.  I will send you a copy of the database I am working with. If you take a look at my code to see if I am doing something wrong. I have code in the open of event of the main form and code in the form1 with timer event.

the codes in the open event of the main form is

Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)
DoCmd.OpenForm "form1"
'   at the startUp of your db, compare the current date with the value of varDate
If DLookup("varDate", "tblShutDownInfo") < Date Then
' update the table
   CurrentDb.Execute "update tblShutDownInfo set vardate=Date(), Shutdown =True"

End If

End Sub

so open the db, change the date "varDate" to 4/3/2012
close the db and open again

It looks like the tblshutdowninfo is being updated.  The form1 doesn't seem to be shuting down at the schedule time now.  Did you look at the timer event of form1?  Thanks.  I would just like the database to shutdown at a certain time in the evening.  When the user comes in the next day or after midnight the database should be available.
