    Opening A Workbook Then Run Code

    Hi

    I seek assistance with running the code shown below when I open a workbook. I have attached a copy of the workbook.

    The code below is in the following cells as a function.

    Sheet HMD Budget cell J2
    Sheet HMD Accounts cell D6
    Sheet HMD Staff cells L6, N6, N7 and N11

    If you change your Workbook_Open to:

    you will manage to update at least one calculated cell every time you open the file. Just link the others to it.
    Surely it's not the best way but it works .

    Hi,

    Please take this as constructive criticism. Aren't you rather overcomplicating the whole thing.

    On the face of it I can see no need for VBA functions when there are perfectly good Excel standard functions available. And if you want to be formatting cells in different ways according to values elsewhere then use Conditional Formatting. Don't try and reinvent the wheel with VBA.

    As a general principle always use standard Excel functionality as the first choice and only revert to VBA when there are things only it can do for you.

    Regards
