Having a userform open upon opening the program


I created a userform in Excel VBA, but don't know how to get it to open when the program opens. Do I add some code to ThisWorkbook, or to Sheet1?

Hope you can help.

If you put the following code in the same module as any macros it should automatically open the form when the workbook opens

Sub Auto_Open()
End Sub

Hi, the first (and simpler) code worked, and the second didn't. However, I had to put the code in a new module -- the rest of the code sits in the userform object.
