I have made visual basic macros in an Excel which are run on Auto_Open. IS there a simple script available to log operations in the Excel file and possible error messages from macro operations to a log file?

You would have to use a general routine for logging the error and call it from an error handler in each routine. If you want to log the routine name, you would have to hardcode that into the error handler for each routine too.

here's a simple log subroutine which accept log file name and data:
 
Sub Log(file As string, data As string)
    Const ForReading = 1, ForWriting = 2
    Dim FSO As Object, TS As Object, TextLine As String, FN As String
    
    FN = file
    Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set TS = FSO.OpenTextfile(FileName:=FN, IOMode:=ForAppending, Create:=True)
    TS.WriteLine data
  
    TS.Close
    Set TS = Nothing
    Set FSO = Nothing
End Sub
