I created a macro that checks before closing if some "needed" cells are filled in. If so then the file saves and closes. But if not then a messagebox appears but the file will close (or ask if I want to save changes). How can I end the macro without closing the file?

Thanks.

Just use an If Then statement, and set Cancel to True if your condition(s) is not met. As a simple example, this will stop the workbook from being closed unless there's a '1' in cell A1 on Sheet 1: -
<pre>
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)

If Sheet1.Range("A1") <> 1 Then
Cancel = True
MsgBox "Type in 1 in cell A1"
Exit Sub
Else:
ThisWorkbook.Save
End If

End Sub
</pre>
