When I open an excel file the workbook open event runs code to disable cut, copy and paste and hides the formula bar. When the file is closed I wish to enable cut, copy and paste and show the formula bar. I have tried the following code but it doesn't work. Does anyone know how to write code to make it work?

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
If Cancel = True Then
Call EnableCutAndPaste
Application.DisplayFormulaBar = True
ElseIf Cancel = False Then
Call DisableCutAndPaste
Application.DisplayFormulaBar = False
End If
End Sub

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

I think you have the Cancel thingy te other way around :)

Should be like this :

Code:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
If Cancel = False Then
Call EnableCutAndPaste
Application.DisplayFormulaBar = True
ElseIf Cancel = True Then
Call DisableCutAndPaste
Application.DisplayFormulaBar = False
End If
End Sub
Regards.

I'd think about putting that in the Workbook_Deactivate code, so that I could have another workbook open at the same time as the disabled one.
