Call a sub on WS Activation

Hi,

I have two Private Subs which i want to call on workbook opening.

The WS i called "Check" and is going to be very hidden.

The subs are below.

What is the best code to use to call these subs on WB opening?

Thanks
Seamus

Basically, move the code you have in the BeforeClose event into a sub in a normal module and then call that sub both from the BeforeCLose event and from the Open event.

However, as Stephen asked - what are you actually trying to achieve?

Use the Workbook-Open event (in the ThisWorkbook module)?

The first sub in your workbook must be called   Auto_open()

Auto_open() will have 2 statements:
call x
call y

where x and y are the names of your private subs.

Seamus - can you post a sample workbook?

Why are they Private if you want to call them from another module? Make them Public instead.

Hi.

I put this in the workbook opening


Public Sub Workbook_Open()
Call Workbook_BeforeClose
Workbook_Open
End Sub

I called the subs Public and it gives me the message when the file opens

"Argument Not Optional"

Thanks

Seamus - what are you trying to do? Why close the workbook when it opens and then try to open it again? (Though pretty sure you can't use workbook events like that.)

Im not trying to close it Stephen, when this work book opens i want it to apply the below code.

It basically shows what time the user enters and after they close what time they left.

Thanks
Seamus
Public Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
With Sheets("check")
    .Range("B64000").End(xlUp).Offset(0, 2) = Now()
End With
ActiveWorkbook.Save
End Sub

Public Sub Workbook_Open()
With Sheets("check")
   .Range("B64000").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0) = Environ("USERNAME")
   .Range("B64000").End(xlUp).Offset(0, 1) = Now()
End With
End Sub

Open in new window

From the Workbook_Open event you should call a public sub, say WorkbookOpen.  Then from the Workbook_BeforeClose event run another called (say) WorkbookClose.  The code to run when the workbook is opened should be in the WorkbookOpen sub.

Helen FeddemaCommented:
You might have some of the same code in these two subs.  No problem, since they are both simple.  If more is involved, you could make some more public subs and call several of them (different selections) from the WorkbookOpen and WorkbookClose subs.
