Answer:Excel 2007 Macro to Send Reminder Email

desantisj, welcome to the Forum.
There are already 3 or 4 posts on this forum that have the VBA code (Macro) that you can modify for your Workbook if you can read the code. Zack has written the code so it is a bit complicated, but it should be a case of substituting your Cell references that hold the data for the ones that others have used.
Otherwise it is a case of waiting for an Excel guru to come along and help. If none of them come along I can probably help you, but I normally work with Access.

For some reason there is a problem with this programme I have built (with help from Computerman) now I have transferred it to another excel file.

When I try to set a Callback Reminder (my terminology), once I have entered the details an error comes up for some reason. The programme has been tried and tested by itself and worked brilliantly but for some reason it doesn't now.

Hi, this is my first post here and I will preface this by saying I am not familiar with VBA/VBScript language at all (only that it exists and perplexes me), which is why I'm requesting your help!
I have an Excel spreadsheet that I'd like to have send me an Outlook email reminder 6 months after the specified start date, without having to open the Excel file so the macro can run. The reminder email can be simple, just a short message like "Referral Alert: Check Spreadsheet"

I've attached a test file with the columns needed highlighted in yellow.

If this is too tall of an order, I understand!
 

Answer:Send Outlook reminder on specified dates from Excel

As far as I know, this is impossible in the given scenario. Macros only run once a file is loaded; therefore, not having the file loaded means any code won't execute.

I designed Excel bookkeeping spreadsheets in Excel 2003 on an XP. When users install the files they open in Read Only compatibility mode for users with Vista and Excel 2007. I understand that if the program installs and is saved before the permission has been changed by the user (in properties, security, edit, continue, user, allow full control box checked, apply, ok, ok) Vista will install it in My Docs.
Could this be causing the trouble? Is there a simple way to allow Vista users to install these macros without changing the permissions? Right now users need to Enable Content, change security settings to say Disable all macros with notification and now this.

I have name in column A, details in column B, emails address in column C, status in column i, and reminder in column k
Somethng else i would like to do later on, if at all possible,is to get a particluar email from outlook be transfered to excel and and then emailed to specific people based on a status column. So if an email is recieved to say a project is extended or cancelled,, it contents is copied to excel and emailed back out to certain people.

Hi Everyone!

This is my first post here. I need your help in developing a mechanism to send an automated outlook mail, when the due date of a project is 7 days away from the current date. The script should preferably run automatically every time the PC is running. without the excel file necessarily open.

In the attached excel file, An email should go of to -email address (Col. D), with subject "Project (Col. B) is due on Due date(Col. C)", and body "Dear Name(Col. A), please update your project status".

Also, the script should put a check mark on Reminder sent column (Col. E) after the mail is sent, the script should also check if the value of the cell is blank before sending email.

I have scoured the forum for similar problems, and although I found a number of of threads,I am not proficient enough in VBA to modify them to my needs.

I'd really appreciate any help,

Thanks

Hey guys, I had some great assistance from computerman29642 earlier on this macro. It works perfectly on my own calendar; however, I need to target a specific shared calendar. Hopefully it could be user imput by a msg box. I am struggling to find information on how to do this.

The first thread was this
http://forums.techguy.org/business-applications/835748-solved-excel-macro-outlook-calendar.html

So, as for now the example works. But before it writes to the calendar I want a msg box pops up asking for the desired calendar(Sometimes more than one word), and then target that calendar and write the data. A simple little box that confirms or denies progress (I am pretty sure I can figure that one out) Any suggestions or directions where I can learn more fire away please. Ill attach a copy of my test again.

Hi,

I am an extremely basic user who has managed to get a basic macro together through multiple web searches and am now stuck...

I have dates entered into the following columns in excel: 14,15,16,26,27,28

I have managed to make the macro create appointments for 14,15,16 but not the rest. Also, every time i run the macro it creates a new appointment regardless if one already exists. I saw on this forum about adding a word to another column which the macro searches for and if found doesnt create a new appointment - or something to that extent. Here is what i have:

Sub POATEST()
' Create the Outlook session
Set myOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

' Start at row 7
r = 7

Do Until Trim(Cells(r, 1).Value) = ""
For Each cell In Range(Cells(r, 14), Cells(r, 16))
If cell.Value <> "" Or 0 Then

' Create the AppointmentItem
Set myApt = myOutlook.createitem(1)

' Set the appointment properties
myApt.Subject = Cells(r, 1).Value & " " & "Update Due"
myApt.Start = cell.Value
myApt.categories = "Yellow Category"
myApt.ReminderSet = True
myApt.Body = "blah blah blah"
myApt.Save
End If
Next cell
r = r + 1
Loop
End Sub

Please can someone assist by:
1. making it apply for all the columns originally mentioned
2. making it search if an appointment for that item (ie that row) exists - if not, create appt, if so, do not create appt and insert "Yes" in column 29

I need a macro that will 1) create a new outlook folder, then 2) create new Outlook distribution lists from data in an Excel sheet.

The Excel sheet has columns:
A - ID
B - DEPARTMENT_DESC
C - STUDENT_LEVEL_DESC
D - MAJOR_DESC
E - PROGRAM_DESC
F - EMAIL_ADDRESS
G - LAST_NAME
H - FIRST_NAME

The first entry begins in row 2 with row 1 being the column title.

I need a new distribution list to be created for each department (column B) and each student level (column C). (Column B will only ever be one of 6 values, column C will only ever be one of 2 values. Therefore, the macro should create 8 distribution lists.)

I have looked at threads similar to this question but I can't seem to get anything working.

Good Morning,

I have very limited knowledge when it comes to Macros and VBA.

What I need is one of two possible scenarios.

1. Information from a Training Assignment PivotTable exported to a shared calendar on Outlook.
2. Information from a Training Calendar bulit as a Macro in Excel exported to a shared calendar on Outlook and the ability to update either calendar if new information becomes available.

Don't know which is best using code via VBA or using the Export/Import functions.

Hi there,

I have to prepare several daily emails which are prepared using a range of data (for example B3122) from Excel 2003 and then have to be sent using Outlook 2003. Unfortunately, due to various management requirements I am unable to merely attach the Excel file as an attachment or paste the Excel data into the email as a straight paste - I have to paste as Unformatted text and then manually change various lines of the email to Bold and Underlined text.
I am trying to write a macro that will do this automatically but am unable to get the Excel data pasted into Outlook (as unformatted text or otherwise). I am assuming that for the font changes to bold I will have to use a Find function in the macro.

The code that I have got so far is as follows:

Range("B3122").Select
selection.Copy

Dim olApp As Object, olMail As Object
Set olApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

Set olMail = olApp.CreateItem(0)
olMail.To = "[email protected]"
olMail.Subject = Range("B3")
olMail.Display

I am new to VBA and so I may be missing a really obvious solution but after trawling the net I have been unable to find an answer.

Many thanks to anyone that can help and make my work a lot less tedious!

Ok, just a bit of advice needed on this one for the time being...
I need a macro that will:

- Save all (Excel) attachments from the currently open email message (or a message selected in the Inbox) to a directory on the PC.

- Merge all the saved Excel files into a single file - they're all formated exactly the same - data in about 20 columns, no column headers or anything, just standardised data.

- Save the merged file with a standard name (i.e. every time this is ran, it needs to have the exact same filename).

- Delete all the files in the directory apart from the merged file.

I know there's probably a fair bit of code online for doing the individual parts of this. Can I do both from within Outlook? It doesn't particularly matter if I need to do this in 2 steps - an Outlook macro to save the attachements, and an Excel macro to do the file merge etc.

Cheers.

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if anybody on these forums could help me with the below task?

I run a backup program that generates email reports to a subfolder in my Outlook 2010 every 6-8 hours to tell me the status of every backup job that I have set up and have running. The email details the job name, the job start time, and the job status (running, completed successfully, failed, missed, cancelled etc).

At the moment, I sift through each and every one of these emails (I have over 100 backup jobs per day) and enter the relevant data manually into my excel spreadsheet. The spreadsheet looks like the following:

Job name Monday 1st Oct Tuesday 2nd Oct Wednesday 3rd Oct Thursday 4th Oct
Job_xxx SUCCESS SUCCESS FAILED FAILED
Job_yyy SUCCESS SUCCESS SUCCESS RUNNING
Job_zzz MISSED MISSED CANCELLED SUCCESS

What I&#8217;d like is to automate this process, so that each day, perhaps every 4 hours, a script would run that would search for certain values within each email I receive and update the excel sheet accordingly.

Example:

- Monday 1st Oct, 10am &#8211; email comes into inbox with subject/body containing &#8220;Job_xxx has started &#8220; >>>> update Excel sheet to record RUNNING under column &#8216;Monday&#8217; in row titled 'job_xxx'

Good Afternoon,

I'm quite stuck trying to fix my code. I've scoured the internet looking for similar questions, but to no avail. I am trying to have excel create appointments in the outlook calendar and be able to run the macro multiple times without have duplicate appointments.

I could run my macro and create an appointment, which worked fine, but there was no routine to check if the appointment already existed. So I would have multiple appointment alerts for the same appointment if I ran the macro more than once. (If I were to add something and run the macro again to keep everything up to date).

I am the administrator as this is a stand alone pc.

Hi,

I need help with a macro. So far the macro is operating as it should , creating MS Outlook 2010 calendar appointments using data from an excel data spreadsheet (data base). The issue I&#8217;m having is that every time the macro is run for a new entry, duplicate calendar appointments are created for the already existing data in the data base. I would like to have the macro do a search to ensure an appointment does not exist before creating one. I have read a few threads with similar problems but have had major issues incorporating the solutions to resolve the issue I&#8217;m having.

I have attached the macro in txt. format for reference.

Thanks for your help.

Answer:Solved: Excel macro updating Outlook calendar is creating duplicate appointments.

Hi
You can use this function to check if an appointment exists based on the Start Day/Time

Code:

Public Function CheckAppointment(ByVal argCheckDate As Date) As Boolean

Dim oApp As Outlook.Application
Dim oNameSpace As Outlook.Namespace
Dim oApptItem As Outlook.AppointmentItem
Dim oFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim oMeetingoApptItem As Outlook.MeetingItem
Dim oObject As Object

On Error Resume Next
' check if Outlook is running
Set oApp = GetObject("Outlook.Application")
If Err <> 0 Then
'if not running, start it
Set oApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
End If

Set oNameSpace = oApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set oFolder = oNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderCalendar)

CheckAppointment = False
For Each oObject In oFolder.Items
If oObject.Class = olAppointment Then
Set oApptItem = oObject
If oApptItem.Start = argCheckDate Then
CheckAppointment = True
End If
End If
Next oObject

Set oApp = Nothing
Set oNameSpace = Nothing
Set oApptItem = Nothing
Set oFolder = Nothing
Set oObject = Nothing

End Function

For this to work you need to have Tools/References/Microsoft Outlook xx Object Library enabled.
Then alter your macro like this

Code:

Private Sub cmdOutApt_Click()
' Create the Outlook session
Set myOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
' Start at row 2
r = 2

Answer:2003 Excel to Outlook Calendar appoinment VB macro creates duplicates appointments

Hi jayJay,

I'm not going to look through the whole code but what I think happens is that sinec you run the macro every time it will just add an appoitment, I think an options should be added, something like an extra column namen DONE and when the macro is run the cell in the column DONE should be given a value True() or a 1 to indicate it as done, so that when you run the macro again the column DONE cells where the valkue is not True() or is not 1 (dependign on waht you choose) is carried out.
This way you will avoid duplication.
Just an idea, happy coding.

I am using the MSN Stock Quote addin with MS Excel 2003. Prior knowledge of this should not be necessary, but I just thought I'd provide full context to my issue. I wrote a macro that essentially records daily stock prices. Because I don't want to store old quotes into perpetuity, i need to ensure that the update quotes button has been hit. I use sendkey() to accomplish this, and then the macro copies the quotes and pastes them elsewhere. My main goal is to have the task scheduler open this file daily so i dont ever have to think about this again, and i'm so close. Essentially my problem is that it takes a few seconds after the update button is hit for the add-in to fetch the new prices from the internet, and this process appears to be delayed until the macro is finished. This is a problem because the macro ends up recording un-updated quotes. I have tried the Application.Wait procedure, and I've tried time consuming loops, do while loops, etc. All of these approaches result in the same thing: Can someone please help me with this? I'm too lazy to hand update this spreadsheet every trading day for the rest of my life (or until i quit). Thank you in advance!

I am looking for help in writing a macro that will do the following.

With Excel 2003 open and the current workbook open. The macro should be able to save 3 variables from the current spreadsheet (some text, a value and a date ) The macro should open up Outlook 2003 as a task, attach the current workbook. In the Subject field of the task it should add the user's name, then the attached spreadsheet's filename then the text variable, then the value variable and finally the date.

Also it would be great if the Priority of the task could be set to High and the Start and Due dates set to 3 calendar days before the date variable.

Finally the macro would set a list of people the task is assigned to. The macro should NOT save the task as a check would need to be done manually.

I have tried unsuccessfully to write a macro in Outlook as I cannot seem to access the attachment filename or any data from the file. I have tried a macro in Excel which I can create a task and add some text to the Subject of the task but with no real progress on the attachment.

I have tried searching the net for help but a lot of code for Outlook is for the mail side of things rather than tasks and the little code snippets I have found have been of limited use. I have limited skills in programming Visual Basic and C so quite prepared to get my use code which does similar things

I am working on a long list of temporary employees hired with "termination" dates. These dates vary. I want a reminder set to 5 days before the listed "term" date so it alerts me with a reminder. I have seen many different formulas and they work.

The problem I'm having is that there is a long list and that is a "continuing" list...so there are many blank rows. Currently I am using both conditional formatting to highlight it and I'm using the IF formula:

=IF(I2<TODAY()+5,"REMINDER","")

The problem is that it is filling in REMINDER for all of my "empty/blank" rows. I do not want it to appear other than where the data is, but I don't want to have to remember to carry the formula down. So right now I have about 22/23 rows that are filled. I want to expand my spreadsheet out to about 600 rows. But everything past the 23 rows is showing REMINDER even though there is no data in those rows. Is there something I can do to have it carry through the 600 rows, but not put in the reminder until there is data in there telling it to send a reminder? I'm using a MAC with Excel 2017. Thank you for any information.

Also, the script should put a check mark on Reminder sent column (Col. G) after the mail is sent, the script should also check if the value of the cell is blank before sending email.

As the Excel file would need to be opened in order to work , I was also wondering how I would be able to set it to open on the start up of everyones machine. Even if it can only start up the programme then it will be obvious to people what they need to open.

Could the email or subject include as much info as it can. Like name, company, job title and contact number. and for it to be sent to the Asignee.

We will then change the next contact date once completed.

Hi, I have created an excel macro that runs sensitivities in my model. The excel button runs 5 different cases.

The macro runs fine and does as I want it to.

Once the macro has run, and I go to edit a cell and hit "F2" excel crashes. This only seems to happen in certain cells and not all of the time.

Does anyone have experience with similar questions?

Hi guys,

I have been on the lookout for a macro that will compare 2 worksheets within MS Excel and output the differences on a third sheet.

I am being directed to the URL below but cannot for the life of me work out how to implement this:

There are two snippets of code which I will include here for convenience but not sure whether these should be pasted into Workbook Code (i.e. right-clicking Excel icon left of "File" - top-left), Worksheet Code (i.e. right-clicking worksheet tab) or inserting a new Module - or some other method. Is there anyone here that could guide me to how to implement this code?

Quote from webpage - "With the macro below it is possible to compare the content of two worksheets.
The result is displayed in a new workbook listing all cell differences. "

Code:

Hi lovely people!

I hope you can help me out - I'm new to macros. In regards to the attached excel file, I need to achieve 3 main goals:
Automated pop-up message - For each phone that is overdue for delivery (ie current date is more than due date), I need a pop-up message upon opening the excel sheet. The pop-up alert should say which phone is due (stock #), and how many days overdue it is (current date minus due date)
Automated email reminders - emails to send to various email accounts (individuals in my team) to remind them of overdue phones. The email should include details like the phone, stock #, supplier, due date and how many days overdue. I want the first email reminder to be sent on the due date itself, then 2nd reminder on the next day, and subsequent reminders every 3 days.
Have a separate sheet listing all the overdue items that need to be followed-up.

Lastly, but is it at all possible to create two versions of the same stock list? I.e. one sheet in English, and the other sheet in French. And any edits in either sheet will update the other version.

Cheers!

Hello Everyone!

This is my first post here. I am using Excel 2013 OS win 7. I need your help in developing a mechanism to send an automated outlook mail, when the due date of a project is nearing 3 hours, 2 hours & 1 hour away from the current date & time. The script should preferably run automatically every time the PC is running when the excel file is open.

In the attached excel file, An email should go of to -email address (Col. F), with subject "number (Col. B) is due on Due date and time (Col. E)", and body "Dear Name(Col. F), please finish your project asap".

Also, the script should put a check mark on Reminder sent column (Col. G) after the mail is sent, the script should also check if the value of the cell is blank before sending email.

I have scoured the forum for similar problems, and although I found a number of of threads,I am not proficient enough in VBA to modify them to my needs.

I'd really appreciate any help,

Excel '07 won't open an "excel 4.0" macro (i.e. *.xlm file). I am one of a few users at work using excel 2007, I believe this file was made with excel 2000 or similar. When I had excel 2000 it opened fine, it's a common file on the network that everyone should be able to access, and everyone with excel 2000 can easily. So I know it's not the file. When I try and open it with excel 2007 I get that stupid error about the file being different to the extension.

I've tried registry edits and workarounds after scowering the net but nothing seems to fix it. All it does is display the error, then opens excel in the background without even a new worksheet. Excel isn't hanging, it just does nothing. Any ideas?
 

Answer:excel 2007 won't open excel 4.0 macro

XLM was long ago replaced by VBA (with Excel 5 in 1993) and MS no longer really supports it (although I think they claim that they do, kinda, sorta.) So the only thing you can do, I think, is to make a copy of the xlm file and convert the xlm code in the copied file to VBA. Fortunately, I found a link that tells you how to do that:
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/excel/archive/2010/02/16/migrating-excel-4-macros-to-vba.aspx
(Look at the link at the bottom, too. But you will need to download that to an older PC, possibly.)
Now, assuming all goes well, this will give you two versions of the same file, but if everyone else has Excel 2000 (or later) then they will all be able to use the new VBA-based file, so you won't end up with two files that would lead to confusion.
Still, it looks to be a lot of work, so good luck!

On a final note, if you need this file done in VBA and you can't figure out how to redo it, make a post describing your needs - there are some amazing VBA coders on here.
