    I have an database that runs on our network and is used by many individuals.
    People keep opening the app using it and not closing (just minimizing it). I
    set up a 15 min auto close feature using the on timer event in the Form
    propertyies dialog box. This works (shuts down) as i want it to. However
    there is no warning so I set up a MsgBox that prompts the user " this app
    will close in 10 seconds do you want to continue." If the user clicks no the
    app saves and closes. however if the user clicks continue how do i override
    the close function that timed out. I have the MsgBox triggered by the timer.
    I need another 10 second timer interval that starts after the first ( prompt
    or warning) that will then close the app.
    please advise and thank you for your help.

    I might have understood only a part of the question, but if you want the
    msgbox apear only 10 seconds and then shut down the application, if no
    decision was made
    Instead of msgbox, create a form that look like a message box, with a timer
    in it, so after 10 seconds, this form will shut down the application.
