How do I make a macro run automatically when a excel file is opened. What do I name this macro.

Excel Facts

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

In the ThisWorkbook module, put:

Code:
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
'rest of code in here
End Sub

Hi,

Right-click any worksheet tab, select 'View Code', then select 'ThisWorkbook' from the list on the left and insert the following:
Code:
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
MsgBox "Hello"
End Sub

I tried using this code the way you indicated...but it didn't work.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Range("A1").Select
End Sub

Excel does't run this code during startup. Is there anything else that i need to do

Did you put it in the ThisWorkbook module and enable macros?
