There are more alternative going :

One is

If you record a macro and save it using the name "Auto_Open", the macro will run whenever you open the workbook

Second is

The following example uses the Open event to run a macro when you open the workbook.

Save and close all open workbooks.

Open the workbook you want add the macro to, or create a new workbook.

On the Tools menu, point to Macro and then click Visual Basic Editor.

In the Project Explorer window, right-click the ThisWorkbook object and then click View Code on the shortcut menu.

In the Object list above the Code window, select Workbook. This will automatically create an empty procedure for the Open event like this:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

End Sub

Add the following lines of code to the procedure:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

MsgBox Date

Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Value = Date

End Sub

Third is the commandline switch

But I can't remember which one it is, look in help or Google :

This way you can use the AutoIT Run("c:\program files\Ms ...\Excel.exe /swit") to trigger the macro.
