This should be easy for some of you! I have a button that when clicked goes to a certain macro code. I need to get rid of the button so how do I get the code to run once when the file is opened?

If you have a numeric keypad, press Alt+7 on numeric keypad to type a bullet in Excel.

Hi Kipster,

Maybe this will help
Code:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
    Call Macro_OpenFile
    CommandButton1.Enabled = False  'or CommandButton1.Visible = False
End Sub

What does this do exactly?

I don't want to hide the button, I want to get rid of it altogether...

Do you just want it to run when you open the workbook, or whenever you choose once it's already open?

Try hitting ALT+F8 if it's the latter, and that'll bring up a menu which lets you pick which macros to run.

No I need the code to be run when the workbook is opened. It only needs to run once. This code updates a table of data.

While in the VBE double click the Module called ThisWorkbook, seen in the Project Explorer (View>Project Explorer (Ctrl+R))

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

*CODE*

End Sub

Also, if it helps, you can just do:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Call YourMacroName
End Sub

I found ThisWorkbook but you lose me after that.... I pasted my code in there, but nothing happened. I'm assuming I'm missing something

I tried to put the auto open command in ThisWorkbook but got nothing
