How to delete a text file from the macro?

Hi,

do not know how a simple macro that checks at startup if the computer is a text file on path: "%temp%\test.log" and if so, delete it?
I found this, but I do not know exactly how to use it:

In the Developer->Visual Basic tab select This Workbook and copy the following code:
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
sTemp = Environ("TEMP")
Kill sTemp + "\test.log"
End Sub

Open in new window


Save the workbook in a trusted directory so that the macro will run upon loading or be sure to enable macros for the workbook when it is opened.
