    Launch Macro Subroutine at Excel Start

    Two questions:

    1-How to run automatically Visual Basic Subroutine Macro at start of excel?
    Sub Auto_Open
    ComboBox1.AddItem "Item1"
    ComboBox1.AddItem "Item2"
    ComboBox1.AddItem "Item...)
    End Sub
    (This is not executing at startup of the Workbook.)

    2-If the launch is a Shell command for Access, how is the Access Window maximized and on top of all the other windows?

    Could also just save your macro workbook as an addin (.XLA file) and select from the AddIns menu in Excel so that it is opened whenever Excel is opened.
