    I’d like to have a macro, called Macro1, for example, run every day at 9 AM. It works great on its own from the VB code editor in Access 2010 but I would like it to be able to execute automatically without access being open

      Hi Rakesh,
      We can not schedule the macros in Excel, instead you can use Windows task scheduler and run the Excel macros using VBScript.

      You can use the below auto run macro in any module to trigger the procedure while opening the workbook.

      Sub Auto_Open()
