Is there a way to send an email message to myself when a particular user has accessed a particular excel file? I have no idea how to even write code to send an email. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome to the board.

The gist of what you're trying to do is, in the ThisWorkbook module, put:

Private Sub Workbook_open
if application.username = "gruple" then
' insert code to send e-mail here
end if
end sub

There are several examples for how to send mail via VBA on the board, with one of the sites referenced being:
