Dear All

I have an elementary question for you.

When I first open excel, I want like a messagebox to appear with some information(example " Hello").

Kindly inform me, how I can do this.

Thank you

Hi

You can do this by placing the following code within your Personal Macro Workbook in the ThisWorkbook module:

Code:
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
MsgBox "Hello"
End Sub

This works because the Personal.xls is normally located within the XLSTART folder and the contents of this folder are automatically opened when Excel is started up.

Best regards

Richard
