    Run Macro on Open

    Hi,

    Ive placed the following on my Normal.Dot, but for some reason it doesnt run when I open word via Start and clicking on the word icon. I know that the version I run via Start is the Normal.dot, because Ive enter some text onto the document so I can identify it;

    Sub AutoOpen()
    Call AutoLabels
    End Sub

    However, for some reason, when I go back into my Normal.dot version, the macro does run on opening????

    Could anyone give any pointers as to why it doesnt run when openingword from Start please?


    Many Thanks
    Lee

    Lee,

    Change that to an 'AutoExec' procedure - if placed in your Normal.dot, it will run every time you start Word.
