You gonna keep excel open?

If yes, take a look at Chip Pearson's notes:

You also may want to look at a scheduler program (some versions of windows have
this built in, but there are lots of shareware programs that do it, too

Then that windows scheduler program can start your file at 8:00 and your
workbook could have an auto_open macro that runs when the workbook opens.

Macro to find last cell in row before blank
I want a macro that will find the last cell in row 16 before a blank. Then I want to copy all the cells in the last three columns with data in it from rows 16 - 200 and paste them in cells O16:Q200.

macros on one page
Good morning! I have a workbook with several macros. Ones that I recorded during the same session (without closing) are listed on 1 page with a line separating them. For example macros 1,2 and 3 were all recorded at one time. The file closed then reopened to record macro 4. When you go to edit macro 1, you can see the code for macros 2 and 3 but not 4. Is there a way that macro 4 could be included on the same page as 1 through 3? I am trying to do this so that I can use the edit replace function and update all of the macros at once. Thank you for any help. Have a GREAT day! I...

Macro to find highlighted cells
Hoping someone can help me with a macro. I need to look at each row (except for header row 1) ... if the cells in the row say "true" that row can be hidden. If any cells in the row say "false" that row should stay visible. Then for the remaining visible cells, look at each column (except for column A), and if everything in that column is true, it should hide that column. If the column has a "false" in it, that column should stay visible. If it makes a difference, I'm searching for the true/false *values* that are returned from a formula tha...

Outlook received time incorrect
Hi, I've set my machine's timezone according to Microsoft's instructions: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/914387 I can send an email to myself at 9:00, and it'll be shown in "sent items" as sent at 9:00. But, my Inbox will display the email as if it was sent at 10:00. When viewing the mail, it specifies that it was sent at 9:00. So my problem is that for some reason, although the mail contains information that it was sent at 9:00, outlook's inbox displays it at 10:00. Note: all my calendar items are displayed correctly, and my calender options dis...

Time Card Report #2
Does anyone know if there is a more user friendly template for Time Card report ? We pay employees every 2 weeks and whenever I run a 2 week report, it only shows one date and below this date it sums up 2 dates of cumulative time worked instead of showing the isolated 2 dates. In other words, under a Monday 5/1, it will show 15 hours which actually means that the person worked cumulatively 15 hours on Monday 5/1 AND Monday 5/8... but Time Card report doesn't show the 5/8 separately which is quite confusing and invonvenient. Any help would be highly appreciated! Here is an addit...

named range in macro call 04-05-10
Is there a way to pass a named range (or even an unnamed block of cells) into a macro? I have written a macro that I want to use for several different ranges of data. I have created multiple buttons that each call the macro, but I cannot seem to find the right syntax to pass in the range of data that I want the macro to use for each button. All I can do is to pass in the row and column numbers that define the upper left and lower right corners of the data range, as follows: Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() ' Call Macro1(UpperLeftRow, UpperLeftCol, LowerRightRow, Lo...

Macro to highlight every 2nd row
Hi, I am trying to work out how to write a macro so that it takes my data range and highlights every second row in a certain colour. if my data is in the range A2:K31, then i want the macro to run so it selects A3:K3 and highlights that in yellow, then skip down two rows and highlights A5:K5 in yellow and so on until there is no more data in the cells (ie. Row 31). the code I have so far is this, but it only highlights every second cell in column A and does NOT extend out to column K...

POS v.2.0 Time Clock display
Is there a file in the File Center that would permit us to implement an aggregate method so our employees can see the total hours worked when they view the Time Clock function? I'm not aware of any way to do this beyond running a report in Manager View, but it's a great suggestion. You should enter this into the suggestion database through CustomerSource. There isn't a selection for POS 2.0, so choose RMS when submitting. https://mbs.microsoft.com/customersource/ "M Kalmus" <MKalmus@discussions.microsoft.com> wrote in message news:25523729-D448-4885-AF...

Daylight Saving time changed events
Once again, the automatic switch to daylight saving time caused my one-day events to now span two days. This seems to happen somewhat randomly, not with all the one-day events. I seem to recall a patch that was supposed to fix this, but apparently it no longer works. I have way to many events to individually change each one, that and I do not know if the span went ahead or behind (e.g. for an event now covering the 9th and 10th, I do not know if the original date was the 9th or the 10th).

Am I asking too much of my macro's
I am using a spread sheet which contains a number of combi boxes (approx. 30) Once I've selected all requirments in these combi boxes, I run a macro to copy the selections to another sheet. I then need all the combi boxes to return to their previous/original selections, ready to start the process again. I tried to record a macro to return them all to their original selections but its not recording any of my 30 selections. It takes far to long doing this manually each time.

Date and Time quandry
I have a report that I created and want to put a date and time on it. I tried the simple Insert Date and Time and I tried using an unbound box with =Date() in it. The report is bases on a parameter query so when the user clicks on the button on the switchboard to bring up the query it asks for a piece of information and then provides the report. When I insert the date into the report, the user is asked for the usual piece of information and then asks for Date. If we just click past that the report comes up with everything correct except for the Date it shows #Name. Now here is the re...

Mr. Kinne had previously posted the following: --- yes you can do this - for example if you want to have a custom button that triggers a macro that you have saved under the Alt+F1, you could insert a code like the following into a class module: Public Function Process(session As Object) As Boolean On Error Resume Next Dim posSession As Object Set posSession = session SendKeys "%{F1}" Process = True End Function then under your cu...
