    AutoOpen from the web (97/2003)

    Hi

    If you download a Word97 document from the web AND Windows is configured to open the document in Word (rather than in the browser) THEN its AutoOpen macro doesn't run.

    1. Does anyone know whether this also applies to Office2003?

    2. Does anyone know why? (If the answer is security, why is a macro in the browser less dangerous than one initiated from Word.)

    Thanks for your help

    You could try using the Document_Open event and see if that works.

    If you allowed the browser to download the file to Temporary Internet Files and launch it from there, that could be triggering the extra layer of security.
