Ooops you said upper right hand corner !!! Sorry
What I discribed before was the upper left corner.

Here is the Upper right Corner
frmIntro.Show vbModeless
frmIntro.Left = ActiveWindow.Width - frmIntro.Width - 15
frmIntro.top=0

Gowflow,

Thanks, it works but you could just explain the code on line :
 frmIntro.Left = ActiveWindow.Width - frmIntro.Width - 15
So that I can understand this for future applications

Thanks, Eric

He is seeing how wide the Excel window is and then subtracting the width of the form window.  This would put your form at the extreme right edge of the window.  He is then subtracting 15 more pixels so that it resides within the boundary of the Excel application.

At least that's how I see it.

Sorry for my quick comment but I guess you closed the question wrongly. If yes and it is the case you need to click on the answer that you feel is the correct answer for you. If still you choose for your answer to be please explain as we do not understand. If you feel multiple answers get to be chosen then you click on each and you attribute points to each
