Is there a way to find out what version of excel is being used by a user who opens a workbook. (IE: EXCEL97 EXCEL2000 EXCEL2002 EXCEL2003). I'd like to place something in the 'Workbook Open' to identify what version of excel the user is using.

The only code I found was this:

MsgBox "Welcome to Microsoft Excel version " & _
Application.Version & " running on " & _
Application.OperatingSystem & "!"

This only tells me for example: Version 10.0
I could use a history lesson on the Versions if I'm thinking about this all wrong. Can anybody help? :wink:
