I have a workbook that I open up from the Public Folders of my company's Outlook system (by double-clicking it in Outlook itself). When it opens, the window is not maximised. To fix this, I put the following code into the ThisWorkBook module
Code:
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
ActiveWindow.WindowState = xlMaximized
End Sub

It opens up maximised, but then after an instant, it goes into a non-maximised state again. If I save the file to a local drive, and open it from there, it works fine.
Anyone have any ideas why this might be happening?

Thanks for all suggestions

Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.

Any takers on this one? It's not desperate but it will be a bit annoying for the users, and I don't want to give them any excuse for knocking the system (some of them are reluctant users).
All suggestions welcomed.
