Default Run Macro Automatically When Excel 2003 Opens
     Excel: General   


!!! HELP PLEASE !!!!!


I have a password protected MS Excel 2003 spreadsheet with several Pivot
Tables and numerous tabs collecting and displaying data based on these Pivot
Tables.

Specific individuals can open this MS Excel 2003 file for updates using a
password and others simply open the file in "Read Only" mode.

I have seven (7) Pivot Tables I need to have refreshed each time the MS
Excel 2003 file opens. I created a macro called "RefreshAllPivotTables" in
This Workbook. The macro goes to each of the Pivot Tables and refreshes the
linked data when you use "ctrl+u".

I need to ensure that each of the Pivot Tables always display the latest
information available. However, our directors and managers find it too
"inconvenient" to run the macro to refresh the data themselves.

Thus I have been trying to get this macro to run automatically when the MS
Excel 2003 file opens.

I selected the third tab called "R3 Total" (there are a total of fifteen
(15) tabs in this MS Excel 2003 file) and selected "View Coding". Using the
VB Editor, I entered the following code:


Option Explicit
Sub Auto_Open()
Call RefreshAllPivotTables
End Sub


It doesn't seem to matter if I open the MS Excel 2003 file in "Read Only"
mode or use the password to open the file, my stored macro fails to execute
automatically. Does it matter which tab is used or opened first? I need my
"RefreshAllPivotTables" macro to run regardless of which of the fifteen (15)
tabs are opened first.

A co-worker mentioned that MS Excel 2003 no longer supports auto-run macro
functions when a file opens. Is this true or am I simply doing something
wrong?

Any HELP would be appreciated.

Thanks,
