DocumentOpen Event

Occurs when a document is opened.

Private Sub object_DocumentOpen(ByVal Doc As Document)

object   An object of type Application declared with events in a class module. For more information about using events with the Application object, see Using Events with the Application Object.

Doc   The document that's being opened.


This example asks the user whether to save all other open documents when a document is opened. This code must be placed in a class module, and an instance of the class must be correctly initialized in order to see this example work; see Using Events with the Application Object for directions on how to accomplish this.

Public WithEvents appWord as Word.Application

Private Sub appWord_DocumentOpen(ByVal Doc As Document)
    Dim intResponse As Integer
    Dim strName As String
    Dim docLoop As Document

    intResponse = MsgBox("Save all other documents?", vbYesNo)

    If intResponse = vbYes Then
        strName = ActiveDocument.Name
        For Each docLoop In Documents
            With docLoop
                If .Name <> strName Then
                End If
            End With
        Next docLoop
