Good morning,
The below code appears in "ThisWorkbook" under WorkbookOpen.

Application.WindowState = xlMaximized
ActiveWindow.WindowState = xlMaximized

Open in new window


It is not maximizing my workbook window when I open the workbook and I don't understand why?

I think the sub needs to be this (note the underscore):
Workbook_Open

Open in new window

I believe that you may also need to save the file as a XLSM extension to enable macros in 2007.
