Set a recurring task ie. a task to check a website each month
It would be advantageous to be able to set a recurring task ie. a daily,
weekly, monthly or other multiple task. An example would be if you needed to
go to an accounts website or prospects website once a month to look for
leads. Or to check out a competitor for new things on their website. It could
also apply to phoning or mailing etc. This would save constantly having to
remember to create a followup or write up to dozens of followups at different

*.XLB is basically the equivalent. It holds your Menus & Toolbars

Some settings from Tools>Options are saved in the Registry so these would have
to be changed in Tools>Options.

Endnote is a Style that you can modify.

Unfortunately, personal.xls does not have a worsheet associated with it,
therefore "options" is not available on the tools menu. Please advise.
You could add a workbook, change the calculation.

Make sure that the new Security Role includes the DEFAULTUSER Security Task.

issue caused by a 3rd party application which was not fully updated to behave

Esca...Lebans Tooltip : Change Default Font Size ?
1. I need to increase the default Tooltip font size. Is this possible?
2. Also I would like to specify one of the icons to appear in the tooltip
" ToolTip Icons (Set with TTM_SETTITLE)"
Only problem is - how do I use TTM_SETTITLE to do this?
I have tried : SendMessage(m_hwndTT, TTM_SETTITLE + TTI_WARNING, IcType,
but this does nothing.....
This functionality is exposed via the SetToolTipTitle method.
To set one of the predefined Icons:

Private Const TTI_INFO = 1

My team has been using the bright blue in Word 2003 default palette for

Put this in the ThisWorkbook module of your Personal.xls workbook (or

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Dim result As Range
Set result = Sheets(1).Cells.Find( _
Find options are persistent, whether done in the GUI or in VBA, so doing
