I have an Excel worbook with operators using in 2003.  

Instead of the AutoRecover function, I would like a macro to run automatically (not on close) which would automatically save the workbook periodically, say every 15 minutes, to a network share.

Could someone help with a sample macro or script to accomplish this?

Public dTime As Date
 
Sub AutoSave()
    dTime = Time + TimeValue("00:15:00")
    With Application
        .OnTime dTime, "AutoSave"
        .EnableEvents = False
        .DisplayAlerts = False
        ThisWorkbook.Save "FilePath&NameHere(no .xls)"
        .EnableEvents = True
    End With
End Sub

 In ThisWorkbook Module;

VB:
