Could you do it by putting password on macro ?

OR you can set expire date for the macro on VBA
the following code is reference only.

You can put it the "ThisWorkbook" in the workbook
When you open new workbook and press atl-F11, it will
show a few sheets such sheet1(Sheet1),Sheet2(Sheet2),Sheet3(Sheet3) and "ThisWorkbook".
The macra will run first in proiority in the "ThisWorkbook" when
the workbook opens
Hope undrestand your question completely.If not , please point it out.

Sub AutoOpen()
ExpirationCode
End Sub
Sub ExpirationCode()
Dim ExpirationDate As Date
ExpirationDate = DateSerial(2014, 10, 11)
If Now() >= ExpirationDate Then
MsgBox “Trial Period ended on ” & CStr(ExpirationDate) & “.”
ThisWorkbook.Close savechanges:=False
End If
End Sub

I don't write code but my logic says.
A Macro password protected as mention by Mr.Duncan
B Need a code line which match date with todays date i.e. =TODAY() if it is after prescribed date then Don't execute.

Drawback - any one can fool this by changing system date ;(
