This is an useful code, I used it sometimes because I wanted that once I open a report, within 30 minutes for instance, I needed in an automatic way, that another macro should run in parallel so I didn’t need to say “ohhh nooo I forgot”.
When I use the macro ?
To launch automatically a macro for a particular time.

How to use the macro ?
This code works meanwhile the report is open and it should be put inside “Workbook_Open()” function, for instance:
- Sub Workbook_Open()
- Private Sub Workbook_Open()
How is the macro ?
Copy the code below and paste it into your macro. You will see my comments in green if exist so follow the help to adapt to your need.
' change the time and test by the name of your other macro to be run
Application.OnTime TimeValue("15:00:00"), "test"
In case if the “test” macro is not located in the same module, I will need to specify the module where is located “test”, for instance:
- Application.OnTime TimeValue("15:00:00"), "ThisWorkbook.test"
- Application.OnTime TimeValue("15:00:00"), "Module3.test"
