You will need to use a special File menu override event called “File_Save”.

If you create this event and do not explicity call ActiveDocument.Save() then the document will not save (basically the reverse logic of what you are looking for). So you'd have a branching logic in your macro that checks for ActiveDocument.IsValid before saving and if that fails then it does not save.

See the Programmer's Guide topic called “File operations”.
