I have a kill switch in a table.  It is basically a yes/no field that if checked yes, I want to shut down the database and force everyone who is in it to exit.

the table is called tbl_killswitch and the field is called kill.

What I want to do is on the opening form kick off the timer to look at the table every 5 minutes and if the kill field = -1 then close the database.

How do I get the timer to turn on and do this?
