Try this code in whichever sheet you want the box to appear:
Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)

 MsgBox ("test message")

End Sub

Superb, just what I needed, thanks!
Thanks. As a follow up, if you needed the message box to show for double clicking on only one cell rather than any cell in the sheet, this code would be sufficient:
Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
 Dim LookIn As Range

    Set LookIn = Me.Range("A1")

    If Intersect(Target, LookIn) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
    If ActiveCell = LookIn Then
    MsgBox ("Test message")
    End If
End Sub
