I have some macros that are auto open on file, but I can't change my macro security settings. I don't think I would be quick enough to ctrl break the macros without them doing some mischeif. Can you open these another way so they don't run with out changing the security?

Have you got macro security set to low? If you have then that is asking for trouble.

Hold the Shift key when you open the workbook, that keeps any event code from running.
