    Insert environ in cell when workbook activated

    Tried the below code to insert the environ username in W1 of Sheet1 when the workbook is opened but it's not working and I can't work out why.

    Anyone got any ideas why it'snot working?

    Yes you're right.

    I deleted the (ByVal target As Range) and it works when you change sheets and return.

    I need this to work when the book is opened not when activated as there will only be one sheet when this is finished

    Still not working when I open it, tried changing to Sub Workbook_Open () but that isn't working either.

    Not sure how this should be done from open rather than when sheet activated

    I had it in the wrong module, I had the code in Sheet1 instead of ThisWorkbook

    FYI, working code if anyone is interested.
