Dialog box when Excel opens

I am have started a workbook that still has some work to do. I will be sending this to show some of my skills. What I need is a dialog box that notifies the user what part of the workbook is still a work-in-progress. How is that done?

I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

One way is with a simple Msgbox. In Workbook_Open:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
MsgBox "...is not complete yet", vbInformation, "Project Status"
End Sub

Open in new window

Or try this workbook. Every time the workbook is opened the 'Status' sheet will show up. It will disappear when you select another sheet.
