Hi guys!

I have a private sub on "thisworkbook"
Code:
Private Sub Workbook_open()
Call module.macroname
End Sub
It is a password protected wb for edit. (So if you didnt give the password when opening you can only read and can't save the file)
I want to edit this privatesub for dont run that "call" if someone open the WB to edit it. (or if someone open for read-only run that "call")

You are awesome, thx for advice.
Cheers
John

You could try:
Code:
Private Sub Workbook_open()
If Me.ReadOnly Then Call Module.macroname
End Sub

The "Me" keyword can be used here as you are in the "ThisWorkbook" code module. If you were using the code in another module it would be writted as:

Rich (BB code):
ThisWorkbook.ReadOnly
