Access On Timer

frimy asked
Last Modified: 2016-02-11
Happy new year All,

I created a small form and in the On timer event I added the following code to close the database at 12:00:00 automatically.
Time Interval = 1000
And added into the autoexec macro to open as a hidden form.
The code works fine.
But if the form is working in the  background I cant delete any records and have other issues.
Please let me know what I can do.

Dim wTime As Date

    wTime = Format("12:00:00 AM", "Short Time")
    Me.Clock = Time
    If Me.Clock = wTime Then DoCmd.Quit acQuitSaveAll
