I have an Excel workbook that has several worksheets.  I would like to have a Textbox of some sort pop up and alert the user that they need to review the information that is typed on that spreadsheet.


So basically, my question is: how do I get a popup box to pop up when the user click on a particular worksheet's tab.  I'm new to VB so please bear with me.

Thanks in advance for your help!!!

Just open the vb-editor in excel and put this code in it...

Private Sub Workbook_SheetActivate(ByVal Sh As Object)
    MsgBox ("this is my message")
End Sub

That worked great!!  Just curious, that message box appeared when all the worksheets were selected.  How can I tweak that code so that it only appears when one particular worksheet is selected.

For example, i have 4 tabs, names, addresses, phones and dates.  I want the message to appear when I select the Addresses tab/worksheet. And not have the message appear when all other tabs/worksheets are selected.

Thanks again!!!

I figured it out, I just put an IF statement identifying the worksheet.  If the proper worksheet is there, then it displays the message.

Thanks,
