I added some codes inside "Workbook_BeforeSave" to check something.  If not meeting my requirements, I used "Exit Sub".  But the workbook was still saved.  Is anyway I can stop saving process?

Put

Cancel = True

in the code at the point you know something's wrong.

I added it in and didn't work.  See my code below.


Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)

    On Error GoTo Errorhandler
   
               
        If Range("AccountNumber") = "" Then
        MsgBox ("Please enter SAI Number")
        Range("AccountNumber").Select
        Cancel = True
        Exit Sub
        End If
   
        If Range("PolicyEffectiveDate") = "" Then
        MsgBox ("Please enter Policy Effective Date")
        Range("PolicyEffectiveDate").Select
        Cancel = True
        Exit Sub
        End If
       
        Dim bln As Boolean
        bln = UserHasAccess()
       
        If bln Then
       
            Call getUserID
   
            frmWaitBox.Show modal
            subRemoveCloseButton frmWaitBox
            frmWaitBox.Repaint

            Call Driver
       
            Unload frmWaitBox
                   
            Exit Sub
        Else
            MsgBox ("Archiving of responses failed - possibly because you are offline.  Your Knowledge Edge results are still valid.")
            Exit Sub
        End If
   

Errorhandler:
    MsgBox ("Archiving of responses failed - possibly because you are offline.  Your Knowledge Edge results are still valid.")
 
    lngMessResult = SendErrorEmail("Error" + " contains one or more invalid range references")
 
End Sub

There's probably something wrong with your range tests because this works for me.

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Const TEST = 5

If TEST = 5 Then
    Cancel = True
    MsgBox "You can't close me"
    Exit Sub
End If

End Sub

Open in new window


To find out, put a breakpoint on the If Range("AccountNumber") = "" Then line and when the code gets there, press F8 repeatedly to trace the code execution line by line.

If you need it here's an article I wrote on how o use the Debugger.
