Will Excel tell me when a date is near?
I was just wondering if Excel is capable of alerting its user when
date is near or when it has arrived. I know that alot of calande
programs will do this however those programs wont keep track of th
other information I need.
I am trying to keep a list of my buisness' clients and when thie
insurance expires. I would like a pop up message or some other type o
alert when a date comes near. I dont know if Excel can even do this.
Any suggestions will help.

Does anyone know of a macro or add-on that I could use as a simple timer for
queries? I don't like to use the CPU time in the Task Manager because of
it's inaccuracy when not receiving full CPU usage.
THanks for any suggestions
Exactly what are you trying to accomplish? Are you trying to cause a query
to run automatically every so often? If so, you will need to use the timer
event on a form to do that.

This function will do what you seek:

Dim lngPos As Long, lngSum As Long
lngSum = 0
If IsNull(varData) = False Then
For lngPos = 1 To Len(varData)

1) Assign events when adding in data thru an update query
for example if you append a bunch of data into a table could you then do
some kind of an update query to say if there is an initial event and no
others tag this one Renewal 1 etc.. the only real data you have to go on
would be Customer A and the total amt .. the event, renewal event and the
delta would all need to be added in
Say Customer A comes in with an initial deal
then Customer A renews their deal
So, the data would look like when you're done.:

Does anyone know if (and how) Excel's sort by date function can be used to
sort by Hebrew date rather than English Date?
Excel can handle the year, but the months and days do not map directly. If
you format the dates as integers in the form yyyymmdd, always using 2 digits
for the month and day, the standard numerical sort might work.

...a count field in a query?
I have a query in which I would like to create a field which
increments by 1 for each record selected, so if there are 10 records
selected by the query, this column would show numbers 1 to 10.
Ideally I would like to have some text in front of each number, say
invoice1, invoice2 etc.
From a previous posting I realise that this is frowned upon but it
would be the simplest solution for my problem!
How can I do this?

I am using Windows XP and Access 2000.
I have two tables Tbl-TrainingWaiting and Tbl-TrainingSchedule.
I have a form called Frm-TrainingWaiting which has the table
Tbl-TrainingWaiting as the Record Source.
I use =TRACourse1.Column(1) in the Control Source of a text box to display
the date held in the Tbl-TrainingSchedule table.
I am trying to make the form Frm-TrainingWaiting sort on the date field.
Can this be done?

When he opens it and refreshes the data it is fine, it pulls the current

appear, he can see it on the task bar, but when he switches focus using

Message posted from http://www.ExcelForum.com
I guess you would have to sort the table with your variable and date ascending first and then use the vlookup function. ie =VLOOKUP("A",A:B,2,0). I would be tempted to automate the sort (possibly everytime you enter the formulae sheet).
