    Program Macro To Work On A Certain Workbook

    Hi I have a workbook called Dec2012 I was wondering if anyone could help me as to where I put the workbook name in the code so I can open other workbooks and use them normally without the macro upsetting them .

    Does the code reside in Dec2012 or in another workbook?

    Just change ActiveWorkbook to ThisWorkbook.

    I'm pretty sure that you don't need a macro for this, I think that excel will auto-save every so often if you configure it like that - though I haven't used Excel 97 for a very long time.

    What are you trying to achieve? You want to open the file and then have it save every 15 mins?

    Thats what i wanted to tell the OP to change activeworkbook to thisworkbook. But i too havent worked on Excel 97 since ages so am not sure whether any other part too needs to be changed.

    Re: Program Macro To Work On A Certain Workbook

    I've told you, to make it operate on only that workbook, change ActiveWorkbook, to ThisWorkbook in your code
