 Automatically Saving Current Document in Word Format?

Is there a way to get Word97 to periodically save (e.g. every 15
minutes) the currently open document in normal WORD format under a
specific name (e.g. "current.doc") so as to provide backup to users who
are frequently interrupted and lose track of their documents?
Apparently the autosave feature is meant to help in recovering from
crashes rather than to recover an inadvertently unsaved file and does
not address this issue.

Name this macro AutoExec:

Sub MAIN
On Error Goto abort
Minutes = 15
Hours = Minutes / 60
Days = Hours / 24

x = Now()
x = x + Days
OnTime x, "AutoExec"

Dim dlg As FileSummaryInfo
GetCurValues dlg
If dlg.NumChars <> "0" Then
 EditSelectAll
 EditCopy
 FileNew
 EditPaste
 FileSaveAs .Name = "CURRENT.DOC"
 DocClose 1
End If

abort:
End Sub
