Combine Workbook open events

Hello, I figured out my last post to make a drop down list default to a certain choice when opening up excel. However I could not edit my post to state so and then ask my follow up question that I have to now to complete my workbook for users. My question is as follows:

How can I cobble together the following codes for workbook_open? What I would like is for a customer/user to open the workbook, 1) see the pop up & then x the pop up, then once the pop up is closed, 2) the workbook takes them to Sheet 2, 3) then the last routine to run resets a drop down list to a default value (can this item also be made to effect multiple sheets that have the drop down list in the same location on those sheets?). Here is my code so far:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
MsgBox "Hello"
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Sheets("Sheet2").Range("V6").Value = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("D5") ..... (((( can this item do this? (Sheets("Sheet2:Sheet5").Range("V6").Value = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("D5") ))))
End Sub

Thanks to everyone for viewing and helping me with this. Step by step I am starting to understand VBA.

You don't need anything special to combine the code but you'll need to add to the code to reset all the dropdowns.
Private Sub Workbook_Open()

    MsgBox "Hello"

    For I = 2 To 5
        Sheets("Sheet" & I).Range("V6").Value = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("D5")
    Next I

End Sub
