    Automating a form open and close

    So, I've just, JUST started with VBA stuff, and I barely know what I'm doing all ready. Just bear with me.

    I just want to know two probably really simple things, and if there's anything else I could do to make the entire deal simpler, I'm game. I'm usually a really quick learner

    1. I have a form which asks the user what they're trying to upgrade, and based on the radio button they select, a cell's value should change. I've got that all down in the OK button's... thing... but I can't get the message box itself to close once OK is clicked! I currently have this:
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    2. How can I get this form to open automatically every time a specific sheet is opened? The box that should open up is called OSType.

    If there's any better way to put this code into the document, tell me because I wanna know too! Thanks everyone!

    You could simply use "Unload Me" to unload the form from memory and to open the form while opening the workbook you could use "Workbook_Open" to do the task. Check out the attached file and let me know if this isn't what you were trying to achieve..
