How to fire the worksheet change event from workbook open event.

How to trigger workbook change event for a specific worksheet or all worksheet with workbook open event?

I have some code on a Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

this does not automatically fires up, unless something changes in the worksheet cell.

I want the worksheet change event to be fired when the workbook opens.

On Local Error Resume Next

Dim Target As Excel.Range

Set Target = Nothing
Call Worksheet_Change(Target)

Open in new window

in the open event. But depending on the code in the change event, this may fail or even throw errors.

Did not work.

it threw error.

i copied your code and pasted in workbook open event. and it did not work.
I had the same issue.  put this code into your workbook open event

change the sheet code name Sheet1  to the actual code name you have.

Run "Sheet1.worksheet_change", Range("a1")

Of course, you need to adjust it to your actual workbook...

btw, the correct approach would be having a public sub in a standard module, which is then called by both events.

What does the code in the worksheet change event(s) do?

If also you want it to run when the workbook opens then perhaps it shouldn't be in the change event(s)?
