Hi everyone,

We have a spreadsheet in work that all of our staff use. To limit the mistakes the staff can make (messing up the spreadsheet!) we have put in some safety measures. When it's opened it goes to full screen, loses the toolbars (to stop them cutting and pasting etc...!) but I need to do something else aswell.

Is it possible to have a macro run/message box when they try to close the workbook using the cross in the top left.

We don't want them to do this because next time they open excel it opens in full screen.

Any help will be appreciated!

How to create a cell-sized chart?
Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Cancel = True
End Sub

This macro will prevent it from closing permanently by using the close button on the upper right corner. You may have to disable this by going to VBE to close the workbook.
