Application.ontime is running even after Excel workbook is closed

I have an excel 2007 workbook. I need to automatically close it after 5 minutes of opening it. I had written  a code as under and this works

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.OnTime Now() + TimeValue("00:05:00"), "Autoclose"
End Sub


Sub Autoclose()

ThisWorkbook.Save
ThisWorkbook.Close

End Sub

However, in case I close this Excel workbook after 2 minutes of opening it, the Excel application is still opening the closed workbook and then again closing it.
This should not happen. The excel application should close only if the Excel application is manually opened by me. Please suggest a method / VBA code.

You have to kill the timer before you close the workbook. Store the start time in a variable and then use OnTime to kill it:

   On Error Resume Next
   Application.OnTime mTimerTime , "Autoclose", Schedule:=False
   On Error GoTo 0

Place the above code in the Workbook_BeforeClose event handler.

What should be the value of mTimerTime? Can I still use
mTimerTime = Application.OnTime Now() + TimeValue("00:05:00")   ?
Or should mTimerTime be of a different value?

You want to set mTimerTime to whatever time you want the timer to pop. Then use that same value to kill the timer should you close the workbook before the timer can pop.
