I have an Excel 2019 spreadsheet macro that has some VBA in it.  Ideally what I would like is

  1. for a user to right-click a file in Windows Explorer (Windows 10) and select "Send to" and have the Spreadsheet available from the "Send to" menu.  Then, when the spreadsheet opens, it gets the name of the file and Autoruns using that file name in the VBA code
  2. Or, if the spreadsheet is opened without the "Send to" method, it will not autorun

Is this possible, and if so, please help...
