VBA Excel 2007 Private Workbook_Save Event Not Firing

I'm wanting to trap the save event in Microsoft Excel so I can display a form.

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)

    MsgBox ("Testing")
   
End Sub


I typed the above code to try and trap the save event, but it never fires.  What am i doing wrong?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

Did you put it in the 'ThisWorkbook' module and not a standard module (Module1) or a sheet module?

This will only fire when you click the save button.
