Automatically run Macro
I Have a workbook which consist of 6 pages or sheets.
The first 4 pages collect data by importing it from other areas such as
website and other workbooks.
the other 2 pages I created tables so I can cleanly filter the information.
I recently figured out how to run a macro to sort data between a range, but
I manually have to run the macro everytime the data gets updated.
Is there way to automatically run a macro everytime the data changes?

...Run macros automatically-AutoFit
I've used Jim Rech's autofit macro for merged cells. It works great. Thanks!
Seems I have to use alt-f8 to run the macro and make the merged cells
autofit everytime I make a change (add text). Is there a way to make it work
automatically, perhaps so that the macro is "always running"?
See my response in another newsgroup, Cindy. :)
Hope it helps!

When I used Lotus a while ago, I remember (I think) being able to put

Does Excel have anything like that?

This is a repost as my one this morning doesn't appear to have saved,

obviously). How do I go about this?
Thanks in advance

I need to run a macro to delete a row if any cell in that row is selected.
However I do not want the macro to run if row 1 is selected.

Alright, I have a very simple macro at the moment that unhides a column

What I need is a maco that will run this macro if the cell F4 = "Other"
from a drop down menu.
Seems painfully simple I just can't find where it is.

I have an excel worksheet which has several macros associated with it.
However the workbook is password protected and so when I open the file, the
macros are automatically disabled. Excel says "you can't run macros that
can't be scanned by the appropriate virus scanning software". Since I wrote
the macros I know they are OK. I've tried setting the Trust Setting to
"enable all Macros" but it still does not allow me to run the a macros
without deleting the password protection on the file. Any ideas? Thanks.
