Date/Time Macro Puzzle

Hi, everyone--

Here is a macro that deposits the date and time into a cell, but which =
supposed to pop up a warning box when the time is after 5:00PM:

Sub NewDateAndTime()

Dim mPrompt As String
Dim mBoxStyle As Long
Dim mTitle As String
Dim mMsg As Variant

mPrompt =3D "It's after 5:00 PM! Click OK to enter time, but please =
to enter TOTAL HOURS WORKED TONIGHT in the yellow box at right.=20
mBoxStyle =3D 64

With ActiveCell

    .Value =3D Now
    .NumberFormat =3D "mm/dd/yy h:mm AM/PM"

    If Now Mod 1 > 17 / 24 Then
        mMsg =3D MsgBox(mPrompt, mBoxStyle, mTitle)
    End If

End With

End Sub

The puzzle is this: in its current formulation, a warning box NEVER =
regardless of the time of day. However, if I reverse the > sign in the=20
"If...Then" clause to <, a warning box ALWAYS appears, again regardless =
the time of day. (I have tried replacing the 17/24 designation with its=20
decimal equivalent [about 0.708333], but the same problem occurs.)

I have no idea what's going wrong. Any ideas how to get the warning to=20
appear only after 5:00 PM? I appreciate your help--this is driving me =

There are probably a number of ways to skin this cat: one of them is to
use the Timer function, which returns the number of seconds elapsed
since midnight.  In your case 5pm is 17 hours after midnight, which
equates to 17*60*60 or 61200 seconds.  You could replace your code
If Now Mod 1 > 17 / 24 Then

.... with this:
If Timer >= 61200 Then

This method will save you a lot of conversion of time strings to
numeric, etc.

I'll give it a shot! Unfortunately I need to go to a meeting, so it's =
going to be=20
a while before I can test this out, but at least I've got something to =
try when=20
I come back.

Macro on cell content

using macro to save a file produces runtime error 4198
I upgraded from Win-XP/Office 2003 to Win-7/Office 2007; the code below ran fine in Word 2003 but in Word 2007 generates runtime error 4198. The variables and directory location are valid. The parameters for FileName are updated for Word 2007; the grammer for the FileName appears correct (no grammer errors when macro runs as is, but grammer errors if I change the string.) When I substitute an actual file name in place of the variables, the code runs w/o error, but the Debug.Print statements generate correct strings. I feel kind of dumb- but what is different about use of variab...

Time Zone chagnes in 2003
I have read some articles about changing your time zone without effecting the times of appointments by exporting and reimporting, but all these KB's seem to apply to previous versions. Is this still the only way to accomplish this in 2003? And if so what will I loose if I do this (any effect on reoccurrence, linked contacts, categories, labels, locations, show time as, and all day events)? Or does anyone know of any way to do this easier (with a 3rd part app perhaps)? Thank you! it works for all versions. AFAIK, you won't loose anything, but you can try it with a few to see ...

Custom dat & time code
Does anyone know if it's possible write a custom cell-format code that=20 would look like the one Excel provides (mm/dd hh:mm AM/PM) but sets the=20 time in red? I've tried "mm/dd [RED]hh:mm AM/PM," but whenever I save = it,=20 Excel moves the red bracket to the beginning of the code so the whole = thing=20 is red. Help! Any ideas? I don't think you can. You can't format formulas like this (character by character). And you can't format numbers this way, either. (Anyway, I couldn't do it.) Wuddus wrote: > > Does anyone know if it's possible ...

Date Range on Report in Money 2003
I have a favorite report in Money 2003 which lists scheduled payments within a range of dates. My file was upgraded from Money 2000.

Now the problem is the other way around: the report shows transactions BEYOND the date range, as well as those within. Is there a fix for that? I still have the Salvage program. :-) Thanks, Elliott ...
