You may need to delete the macro to close your file down!

Create a macro which displays the following message when you click on cell B3 (note that the Address property of a cell gives its address in absolute format - eg $B$3):

Beware - the address property is case-sensitive too!

Create a macro which displays the following message before you double-click (you can use VbCrLf twice in succession within your message box to create the new lines):

Not that polite really ...

Create a macro which displays the following message when you try to open its file:

The message which appears when you open a file

Note that strictly speaking this is impossible, as you can not interrupt the Open event.  Instead, issue the command ActiveWorkbook.Close immediately after the file opens - your user will never see the difference!

Create a macro which immediately deletes any new worksheet you create, with the following message:

The last one is the crazy one, need to be very careful, if we try to excute.  So that means I would never be able to open the file?

You can always hold down the SHIFT key when you open a file to bypass any macros ...

i did press the SHIFT key and then tried to open the file, however it is still not opening.  Could you please help, what's the cause or if there is any other way I can open it.

You need to click on the workbook to select it, hold down the SHIFT key and keep it held down when you click on the Open button.  Beyond this I can't help you I'm afraid!
