How do I do this?  I have it set for Auto_Open and that doesn't work.  Workbook_open didn't work either.  The macro I need to open refreshes data from data sources.

Dim XL As Object
Set XL = CreateObject("excel.Application")
With XL.Application
    XL.Visible = True
    XL.Run "Your_Macro_Name_Here"
    XL.Quit
End With

Set XL = Nothing
