Workbook_Open() not firing

  • Workbook_Open() subs are not firing if I have another workbook open.
    The sub does fire if no other workbooks are open, but if another workbook is open, it doesn't fire.
    This is not workbook specific... it happens to any workbook with a Workbook_Open() sub.

    Private Sub Workbook_Open()
    'Load Initial UserForm
            If ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Project Info").Range("F2").Value = "" Then
            End If
    End Sub

    Thoughts on what could be stopping the Workbook_Open sub from firing?

    Just noticed another peculiarity...
    Comments aren't showing with mouse-over, on any but the first workbook opened.

    No comments or suggestions... I'm a little surprised from this group.

    Anyway, issue is solved... I started over with a fresh workbook and redid everything, which now does as it should.

    I'd still be interested in theories behind the cause, as it would be a real SoB if I was further into a project and had to start over to get a fix.

    I found the cause of the mouse-over and data validation dropdowns not working.
    On the 'Original' sheet, I have snapshots of sections of the 'Data' sheet to show company and client info.
    If these snapshots reference ranges on another workbook, things are fine, but once the reference is to a sheet/range within the same workbook, the mouse-over and data validation dropdowns stop working.
    I deleted the snapshots and all is well again.

    I'd still like some insight as to why this is occurring, and how to get snapshots without having this problem.
