"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Does Private Sub Workbook_Open() exist yet?

you must create the function before calling
Paul Pearson has a nice article explaining how to do that.

In order to use the code on this page in your projects, you must change two settings.

    First, you need to set an reference to the VBA Extensibility library. The library contains the definitions of the objects that make up the VBProject. In the VBA editor, go the the Tools menu and choose References. In that dialog, scroll down to and check the entry for Microsoft Visual Basic For Applications Extensibility 5.3. If you do not set this reference, you will receive a User-defined type not defined compiler error.

    Next, you need to enable programmatic access to the VBA Project. In Excel 2003 and earlier, go the Tools menu (in Excel, not in the VBA editor), choose Macros and then the Security item. In that dialog, click on the Trusted Publishers tab and check the Trust access to the Visual Basic Project setting.

    In Excel 2007, click the Developer item on the main Ribbon and then click the Macro Security item in the Code panel. In that dialog, choose Macro Settings and check the Trust access to the VBA project object model.

Once you've done the above steps, use the following code:
Option Explicit

Sub AddProcedureToModule()
    Dim VBProj As VBIDE.VBProject
    Dim VBComp As VBIDE.VBComponent
    Dim CodeMod As VBIDE.CodeModule
    Dim LineNum As Long

    If SubExists("Workbook_Open", "This_Workbook") = False Then
        Set VBProj = ActiveWorkbook.VBProject
        Set VBComp = VBProj.VBComponents("This_Workbook")
        Set CodeMod = VBComp.CodeModule
        With CodeMod
            LineNum = .CountOfLines + 1
            .InsertLines LineNum, "Private Sub Workbook_Open()"
            LineNum = LineNum + 1
            .InsertLines LineNum, "    Call FunctionOrganizeData"
            LineNum = LineNum + 1
            .InsertLines LineNum, "End Sub"
        End With
        MsgBox "sub Workbook_Open already exisits"
    End If
End Sub

Function SubExists(StrSubName As String, strModuleName As String) As Boolean
    Dim VBProj As VBIDE.VBProject
    Dim VBComp As VBIDE.VBComponent
    Dim CodeMod As VBIDE.CodeModule
    Dim LineNum As Long
    Dim NumLines As Long
    Dim ProcName As String
    Dim ProcKind As VBIDE.vbext_ProcKind
    Set VBProj = ActiveWorkbook.VBProject
    Set VBComp = VBProj.VBComponents(strModuleName)
    Set CodeMod = VBComp.CodeModule
    With CodeMod
        LineNum = .CountOfDeclarationLines + 1
        Do Until LineNum >= .CountOfLines
            ProcName = .ProcOfLine(LineNum, ProcKind)
            LineNum = .ProcStartLine(ProcName, ProcKind) + .ProcCountLines(ProcName, ProcKind) + 1
            If ProcName = StrSubName Then
                SubExists = True
                Exit Function
            End If
    End With
    SubExists = False
End Function
