Application.Quit in Excel 2007

I want to force users to close the Excel Application using a CloseButton on a
UserForm rather than the X button, so I have the following code:

In the ThisWorkbook Module:

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
If CloseMode = vbFormControlMenu Then
Cancel = True
Open_Switchboard 'name of UserForm
End If
End Sub

In the Userform:

Private Sub cmdCloseButton_Click()
Application.Quit
End Sub

When I click the CloseButton on the UserForm, nothing happens. If I remove
the code from "Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)" then the
application quits when I click the CloseButton.

Why is that? Is this a bug in Excel 2007? Any help?

This application is saved in "Compatibility Mode" if that makes any difference.
I searched Excel 2007 Help file for "CloseMode", nothing in help.

Paul,
IIRC, CloseMode is only valid on a userform. It is not supported on the
Excel app - unless that has changed in XL2007.
This approach will not work.

Maybe setting a flag when the userform unload and call application.quit.
In the Workbook_BeforeClose, check the value of the flag and set
cancel=True/false.

Thanks NickHK
I tried Public Ok2Close as Boolean at the module level.
In a procedure I wrote:
Ok2Close = True
Application.Quit

The first line in: Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Debug.Print Ok2Close

the value of Ok2Close is always False

The variable Ok2Close looses its set value between the Module and
ThisWorkbook. Can't figure out why.

Paul,
It sounds like it's a question of SCOPE.

Declare the variable Public in a standard module, not on the worksheet
module, or call it with
Sheet2.Ok2Close = True
