How do I get a macro to run automatically

Posted by Donna on June 03, 2000 8:54 PM

I have been using VBA in MS Word and want to know how to get a message box macro to run when File New is clicked for a template. I want the equivalent of FileNew in Word.

Thanks Celia but that isn't exactly what I want. I want a message box to display when a new template is opened. The message box just gives them some information about the template and they only have to click ok, then the message box will go away.

Put the following in the ThisWorkbook module :-

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
MsgBox "Put your message here"
End Sub

Thanks Celia. That was the answer to my question. How long have you been doing this?

I started trying to learn VBA about 6 months ago.
