Name the macro Auto_Open

pacificdb: AutoExec is for Word macros that you want to run when you first start Word.

in your Excel workbook

open the Code editor with ALT + F11
then insert this code in the thisworkbook object

Private sub Workbook_Open()
  msgbox "opening1"
end sub

or preferable..insert a new module

and insert this code

sub Auto_open()
  msgbox "opening2"
end sub

both will run on the open, but the first is a bit troublesome when debugging code...
