Hello, I have an excel document we use to track the "end" dates of an internet service we offer. What I am trying to do is automate the expiration date of the sheets in excel. When the expiration date for the service of a client is coming up, I would like to receive an email 3 days in advance letting me know it is about to expire. Any help would be great. thank you.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link __ http://downloadreimage.com/download.php__. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

You are going to need a Macro to send yourself an E-Mail.Look here:http://www.rondebruin.nl/win/sectio...also, if you search the OFFICE forum with the keywords MACRO and EMAILyou should get several hits.MIKEhttp://www.skeptic.com/

8 more repliesDoes anyone know a way to create an email alias? I sometimes need to email data to people without enabling them to contact me (they're supposed to go through a help desk). I've looked at services like 10minute mail, but they don't enable you to create and send mail, only receive it. Any ideas?

Go through a help desk? Can I assume there is a web site, with a domain name in the mix somewhere?

I would use the email services connected to the web site or domain name to create a generic email account, then configure it with an "auto response" that responds to any email sent to it with a message to contact the help desk. You can then use the email to send and do not have to be concerned if the recipient attempts to respond to the email instead of contacting the help desk.

However if you only have access to "free" email like google mail, yahoo mail, etc, I do not think you have this option. It might be time to have your own domain name and use the associated email account?

Cheers!

I have this for my "current" column =IF(TODAY()-C2<30,H2," ") and this for my 90+ column =IF(TODAY()-C2>90,H2," ")How do I change this formula to get 30+ and 60+ columns?

What is it your doing?Your "current" formula looks for Less Than 30 dayswhile your other looks for Greater Than 90 daysA bit more of an explanation of what it is your trying to accomplish would help.How do I change this formula to get 30+ and 60+ columns?=IF(TODAY()-C2>30,H2," ") should get you greater than 30 =IF(TODAY()-C2>60,H2," ") should get you greater than 60But be aware that the 30 Days is within the 60 days,so when it's 60 days both will be true.And Excel questions are best asked in the Office Software forum.MIKEhttp://www.skeptic.com/message edited by mmcconaghy

Hi, I have a risk register which has action by dates for owners of that particular risk. I would like to set up a VBA code that automatically sends each owner an email reminder, through outlook, 5 days before the action date. One owner may have multiple risks due on the same date so I would like the code to send 1 email detailing all the item numbers that the owner has to look at (however this is not at the top of my requirements if it causes issues). I would like the email to include the "Number" (Col. A) in the body listing which risks the owner should look at along with a message reminding them that the action by date is near. Also i want this to be automated, I want the code to run once and send emails as time goes on. Also i will need to change the action by dates as new information is available, can the code account for this change and send another email when the new action by date is near? Thanks for your help I really appreciate it. Using excel 2010

Greetings all,

I am a novice at best on using excel, but through some searching and experimentation I have managed to get to a roadblock I cannot pass. I am working on setting up a workbook that emails at specific dates for reminders to people in my department. I believed I had it working however I have run into two issues.

One is a run type error 13 that highlights toDate = Replace(Cells(i, 3), ".", "/") when I run the debug.

The second is that no matter what I try to do I continue to receive error messages. Can I ask that one of the very talented excel knowledgeable people here look to find where I am making my errors?

Thank you much in advance with any assistance you can provide which will stop me from pulling out my hair.

Hi, I have zero experience with VBA but need to get the attached spreadsheet set up so that an email notification is automatically sent whenever an expiry date is within 30days.

If possible I need to set this rule up for every sheet within the workbook, and for it to also update the Mail Status column to display whether or not notification has been sent.

Can anyone help me to set this up? Thanks in advance

Hi Everyone

I'm needing to automate a process that notifies a group of users to complete specific data on a shared Excel template file. The process is date driven. For example; row 1 has data due on 4/25/2017 by Bob Smith, while row 2 has similar data due on 4/29/2017 by Rose Hill, etc. We are in a Windows 7 environment, Outlook 365 mail clients and recently updated to Office 2016 from 2010.

Anyone have any ideas on how to best approach a solution for via Excel macros?

I'm in HR and I have a spreadsheet that incorporates staff information commencing, with each month in a new sheet. Unfortunately, department managers are forgetting to do staff reviews at 3mth, 5mth or the 6mth probation. I've entered formula to calculate these dates from the staff commencement date.

Now I need to find out if I can have some sort of Macro or VBA coding to email me a reminder to contact the managers a week prior to the the review/probation dates.

Please help! I have no idea with coding/programming etc.

Try the attached, one thing to note that you had the probation dates in the wrong place

6mth, 3mth and 5mth

so I changed it to 3\5\6

when you open the workbook the macro will run and generate an email IF any dates is below or equal to 7 and above or equal to zero. Meaning that there is a week until the review is required. This code will fail if the review date is in the past, this can be changed to tell you that a review date has been exceeded.

So I need help on something very easy.

I need to have excel email just one person when a due date is met.

This is really simple

the cell in A1 will be the current date, aka =today(), and the cell in C1 will be the impending due date, like =A1+45, and B2 would be the function, in which =IF(C1=A1, "alert", "not due")

I need the email to be sent if B2 reads alert.

OS Windows 7

Office 2010

I have a project planner (excel 2003) and would like the spreadsheet to email (outlook 2003) me when I have an upcoming due date (preferably the day before).

E.g. Due Date 13.03.2013 would induce a reminder today (12.03.2013)

I won't be viewing the sheet daily and would therefore like this to happen even if the sheet isn't open. Is this possible?

The Due Date is listed in a column.

Are these actions possible? If so, how?

Thanks for your help.

Hye guys...i have excel file to control expiry date for technical documents. Every month, i need to send reminder email to the user on the expiry date, so they can review back the applicability of the documents to the user.

My question is..if there any way i can sent the email to the user automatically from excel file, one day before the expiry date.

Currently i m using Zimbra email for internal communication.

Appreciate your idea.

Thanks

Hi, welcome to the forum.

I personally do not have any experience with Zimbra but have you checked the othet posts with similar questions?

There are quite a few and also some I helped with.

If you do a search in this forum you will see the answers and the code used which will maybe help you.

We can always carry on from there.

I have no idea if this is even possible, but I would like to create a spreadsheet that auto-populates a series of dates based on one date that the user enters. Let's say I have a goal date to complete a project, and for every project I work on, something needs to happen 6 weeks prior to the goal date, another thing needs to happen 4 weeks prior to the goal date, and something else needs to happen 1 week and 5 days before the goal date. I would like to set up 4 cells in Excel: one for the goal date, and three for the various things that need to happen leading up to that goal date. I would like to be able to enter the goal date into the main cell and have the other three cells auto-populate with the correct date based on what I enter in the goal date. For example, if I enter a goal date of 11/01/2016, I would like the other three cells to automatically populate themselves with: 09/20/2016 (6 weeks prior), 10/04/2016 (4 weeks prior), and 10/20/2016 (1 week and 5 days prior). Is this possible? Can Excel return dates in that way?

Sure, it's easy. Excel internally stores Dates and Times as numbers. Each day is a whole number and time is the decimal portion of that day. See here for a pretty good explanation of how Excel deals with Dates and Times as well as links to all the various Date and Time functions that Excel offers:http://www.cpearson.com/excel/datet...As for your question, simply subtract the number of Days required from the cell with the Goal Date.With 11/01/2016 in A1, use this to return 9/20/2016:=A1-42(42 is 6*7, or 6 weeks.)I'll leave the other two formulas to you. ;-)Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

Dat's cuz they're probably not being recognized as dates by Excel. My guess from afar is that the cells are formatted as Text and aren't accepting any other formats. Excel is finicky like that sometimes.Try this with one of your stubborn "dates"...let's assume it's in A1=DATEVALUE(A1)Now format that cell anyway you want.Then do a Copy...PasteSpecial...Values to eliminate the formula.

VLOOKUP returns the closest lower value.If no exact date then return 0 or "".Is there an easy way to do this in Excel without writing code?Thanks for helping in advance!

If you want an exact match, you need to use FALSE or 0 in your VLOOKUP as the optional range_lookup argument:=VLOOKUP(DATEVALUE(MONTH($A2)&"/"&DAY($A2)&"/"&YEAR(C$1)),Generation!$B:$C,2,0)Review the VLOOKUP Help file to see the options for this argument.If an exact match isn't found, this will return #N/A, so wrap the formula in an IF(ISNA()) function to get a "" of 0 if the VLOOKUP evaluates to #N/A. This will return "":=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(DATEVALUE(MONTH($A2)&"/"&DAY($A2)&"/"&YEAR(C$1)),Generation!$B:$C,2,0)),"",VLOOKUP(DATEVALUE(MONTH($A2)&"/"&DAY($A2)&"/"&YEAR(C$1)),Generation!$B:$C,2,0))

I am trying to subtract two dates in excel but I keep getting weird results...

My dates are formatted like this: 8/11/2010

I am using TODAY() to return the current date. Then I want to compare that to see how many days have passed since a given date. So my formula is this: =TODAY()-D2

Now, it seems to kind of work because the result I get is 1/30/1911. 30 days is the correct answer! But why am I getting the full date?? How can I fix this? And why the heck is it saying 1911 - on another computer I tried it says 1/30/1900...

??

Look into the Datediff function. I think for what you want (doing this from the top of my head) is Datediff("d", D2, TODAY()) or you can sub TODAY() for NOW(). Like I said it is from the top of my head but should be something like that.

I want to put hourly rates of $6 alongside weekdays and $7 for weekends.I did this it doesn't work:=IF(A2=weekday, 6, 7)Help?

2 more repliesHey

I have imported data from an outside database and it brought in the dates seperated. The information is in columns and the day, month (which is in text), and year each have their own cell. There are hundreds of dates. Due to space considerations I need each date to only take one cell. Is there any way to do this without having to do it by hand?

Not sure which version of Excel you are using, but am assuming 2007. I will also mention what to do if you are using 2003 or earlier

Create a blank worksheet and do the following so that you can see how the following formula works and then how to convert it as a value rather than a formula

In A1 type 24

In B1 type June

In C1 type 1990

In D1 type =DATEVALUE(CONCATENATE(A1,B1,C1))

Assuming you have similar data in the Columns A, B and C, copy the formula in D1 down column D until you have a formula for each row of data in A, B, C

Select all the formulas in column D and click on Home Ribbon tab ans click on the Copy Icon to place it in the clipboard. 2003 and earlier Edit, Copy

Whilst those cells are still selected click on Home ribbon tab and click on the little down arrow just under the Paste button and select paste values. 2003 and earlier Edit, paste Special, Values OK

Your data in column D will now be as a date (not a formula) which in the background is treated as a number, which then allows you to do calculations on the dates.

Now select columns A, B and C and delete those columns

You are now left with column A and the dates in single cells.

Hope that helps

Some times I have only the year (eg 1914). Other times I have the full date (eg 12/25/2011). If I format the Excel for as a date and enter merely 1914, it shows as 3/28/1905 (its reading only the "1914"). I do NOT want to enter 1/1/1914 - because that is an incorrect date (all I have is the year 1914). What I want: If I have only the year, I want only the year (eg 1914) to show. If I have the full date, I want the full date (eg 12/25/2011) to show. How do I do it? Does it require an IF statement?

Not sure what it is your after, but Excel stores dates and times as a number, representing the number of days since January 1, 1900So when you enter 1914, Excel reads it as 1,914 days since 01/01/1900or 03/28/1905.See this page for a complete explanation of how Excel works with Dates/Times:http://www.cpearson.com/excel/datet...MIKEhttp://www.skeptic.com/

I am trying to do the following:If the date is before 1/1/2014 in cell I15 I want cell J15 to say "yes". If the date is after 1/1/2014 in cell I15 I want cell J15 to say "no".Then, in another cell, I want if cell I15 is between 1/1/2014 and 1/1/2015 I want the value in G15 to be placed in cell K15.

For the J15 formula, what do you want to return if the date in I15 is equal to 1/1/2014?The same question holds for the formula in K15: What if the date equals one of the 2 dates that you are checking for?BTW, the solution will be based on the IF function.

More repliesHello,

What a great help this forum is.

I know nothing at all about VBA, yet managed to get a macro in excel that allows me to send the "due date" emails that works almost perfectly for my needs. I based my macro on the code found here https://forums.techguy.org/threads/...ue-date-reminder-based-on-excel-file.1129238/

But i'm still missing one function in this macro for it to be perfect for my needs. I want it to send only one email to the "area manager" specifying all the items (serial number and location) that follow my due-date rule (instead of one email per item). I want it to send a list of items that are due this month for example.

Is it possible?

Forgotten how to format dates in excel so they accumulate down the column.e.g. has to be like this down the column1st January 1950, 1st February 1951, 1st March 1950 .... 1st January 2006 help much appreciated. Durko

Should it be 1st March 1952? If so:Tools > Add-ins, make sure Analysis Toolpack is ticked.With the first date in A1 enter in A2=EDATE(A1,13)and copy down as far as needed. Select Column A, Format > Cells and set to display as you wish.

4 more repliesHi there

I'm having problems with dates in a macro. To simplify things, here is an example of my problem. I have code that goes something like this:

Range("K1").Select

Do

If Range("k1") <= Range("D9") then

ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).Range("A1") .select

End If

Loop Until ActiveCell >=Range("K1") or ActiveCell = ActiveCell.Text

Cells K1 and Cells D9, C9 and B9 all have dates. Assume that the dates are as follows:

K1 = Sept 05, 2005

D9 = Oct 15, 2005

C9 = Sept 05, 2005

B9 = Aug 2, 2005

A9 = text

The problem is that the cursor stops at the text cell (A9) and completely by-passes all the dates. It should stop at Cell C9. If C9 did not equal K1, then the cursor should stop at cell D9.

The macro works fine if I take out the inequality signs and just leave the equal signs. What Am I doing wrong??

Please help.

Hi,I am looking to write If statement that if I write a date into cell A2, then A1 will display "Good" if its within 4 years since the date in A2, or A1 will display "Expiring Soon" if its between 4-5 years after A2, or A1 will display "Expired" if its 5 years after the date in A2. I have never used If statements with dates before so I don't know where to start and any help will be greatly appreciated.Thanks,

re: "if its within 4 years since the date in A2"By its I assume you mean today's date. If so...Take a look at the EDATE function. EDATE returns the serial number that represents the date that is the indicated number of months before or after a specified date (the start_date).e.g. For your 5 year (60 months) expiration criteria, this should work.=IF(EDATE(A2,60)<TODAY(),"Expired","")Basically what this says is "If I add 60 months to the date in A2 and the result is less than today's date, then the date in A2 must be more than 5 years ago."The "inverse" of that is to subtract 60 months from today's date to get the same result:=IF(EDATE(TODAY(),-60)>A2,"Expired","")Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.message edited by DerbyDad03

4 more repliesDoes Excel (version 9.0) have a feature which will allow me to compute various day/month/year time lapses? For instance can I compute the number of months between Oct. 1, 2003 and September 31, 2013? Or if I want to determine what day it is 25 years from today?

Use the datedif function

i.e. =DATEDIF(Date1,Date2,"Interval")

Where

Date1 is Start Date

Date2 is the end date

Interval is one of the following: You must use the inverted commas

"m" Months

The number of complete months between Date1 and Date2.

"d" Days

The number of days between Date1 and Date2.

"y" Years The number of complete years between Date1 and Date2.

"ym" Months Excluding Year

The number of months between Date1 and Date2, as if Date1 and Date2 were in the same year.

"yd" Days Excluding Years

The number of days between Date1 and Date2, as if Date1 and Date2 were in the same year.

"md" Days Excluding Months And Years

The number of days between Date1 and Date2, as if Date1 and Date2 were in the same month and the same year.

Dates input to Excel are being treated simply as a text string and not recognised as dates. Apparently, all was OK until recently (this is a friend's problem). Old spreadsheets suffer the same problem, so it seems to be a global problem.Any ideas please?

The cells have to be formatted to accept dates rather than text or numbers. Goto Format/cells after selecting those that need to be dates.

I want to make a new column of months from a date

I have a detached with column A as a normal date format 01/12/2006 DD/MMM/YYYY

I then in column B use the month function - so = month(A1)

it displays 12 - and if I go onto the Fx to see the expression helper / wizard

I get told that i get a number returned 1-12 here 1 = Jan and 12 =dec

so that i format the =month(a1) into a MMM-YY format and

get Jan-1900 - I'm cool with the 1900 as i have not specified YYYY but why do i get Jan returned instead of Dec

But what I'm after and maybe a simpler way is to have a dropdown on my pivot table of MM-YYYY from my date field rather than DD-MMM-YYYY

so I can choose and show month data

I'm sure I did this in the past just by using format - MMM-YYYY on a date field and it worked in the picot table OK

I am working with an Excel file and I have today's date autopopulating in cell C1 using the NOW function. In cell b12 I enter the date of an instance, for example 4/15/2013, then in C12 I am using the function of IF(B12="","",SUM(B12+30)) to give me 30 days from the date. In cell H12 I am trying to have that cell autopopulate if the date in C12 is older than today's date in C1. I have written the formula the way I feel it should work, but it is not working yet. Here is what I have =IF(C12="","",IF(C12<C2,"","X")). Once I get that working there is another formula for me to add where it turns the line red if there is an X in H12. It seems like a lot of stipulations and connections and I know if one thing is off, then more than likely even more will not work.Thank you

I don't see where you are using C2 for anything, so I can't answer any question related to IF(C12<C2,"","X").BTW, if you are only dealing with Dates, why not use =TODAY() instead of = NOW()?Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

Thanks,

Probably a simple solution to a fairly simple question but it's had me stumped for ages.In the first column i typed in a date (26-03-08)what i then want to do is drag this date down and for it to increase in value by weeks ie 02-04-08, 09-04-08 etc. Can it be done, or have i got to go through and type it all out (which would have been quicker now with the time i've spent mucking around).Many thanksNos

2 more repliesHey there,I would appreciate if i get help on Excel Date formatting. Problem Statement: when I download the report from Business Intelligence, I get certain columns with Dates.

Second Problem: When all the data is related to Quarter 1, when I try to format the date, I end-up getting dates as 02-Sep-2011, but the actual date is 02/09/2011 when I pull it from reporting system.The date should be 09-Feb-2011. I have some 3000 lines of such adamant dates, help me to get out of this issue.Positively seeking anybody's help.Gracias/Thanks/Saludos/Dhanyawad/Shukriya

re: "I can't format the dates which are in System driven format,"I don't know what you mean by "System driven format" but I can tell you that very often data that gets downloaded from websites and/or other applications ends up in Excel as Text instead of numbers or dates.Since I can't see your spreadsheet from where I'm sitting, I'm going to take a guess and suggest that both of your problems are related to each other.Let's start with Problem 2:re: I end-up getting dates as 02-Sep-2011, but the actual date is 02/09/2011 This statement does not really make sense. 02/09/2011 could actually be 02-Sep-2011 or it could actually be 09-Feb-2011, depending on how Excel (actually Windows) is set up. Let me explain.The format in which Excel recognizes dates is based on the settings in the Regional and Language Control Panel, Customize button, Date tab. This is what determines whether the first 2 digits represent the day or the month.My guess is that the values that you cannot format as dates are those where Excel can not recognize the month.For example, since your system is recognizing 02/09/2011 as 02-Sep-2011 I'll assume that your Windows setting is something like dd-mmm-yyyy.Excel has no problem changing 02/09/2011 to 02-Sep-2011 since 09 is a valid month, but it wouldn't know what to do with 02/15/2011 since there is no 15th month. My guess is that Excel decides that values like 02/15/2011 must be text and therefore cannot be formatted as a date.Try changing your Control panel s... Read more

Hi sabledog,

If you look at the internet headers of the email, you will notice all the different servers that your mail has been routed through. One of those servers probably held onto your mail, due to backlog or whatever, and that is the reason you see a date or time difference.

To view Internet Headers in Outlook, Open mail, click View, Options. At the bottom of the window you will see the Internet Headers box.

here's an MS Technet response concerning OE

Hi all,

I've spent a good few days reading posts on this site it seems between everyone here there a whole host of knowledge!

I'm here as I am having trouble with an excel sheet and I'm unsure how to solve it.

I am using excel 2007 on my laptop.

I've searched both this site and google for a few days now but I haven't found anything that seems to be what I need.

There is a thread on here that was helped by Keebellah and that is the closest I can find to what I am trying to do however I can't seem to edit the code in such a way that gets it working in my sheet.

Let me explain what I am trying to do.

My sheet is a training tracker which has a column of names of employees and some dates.

Specifically the dates are: Ideal WK4 date, Ideal WK8 date, Ideal WK12 date. These all have dates inserted.

There is also a column next to each of these that either says completed, or is empty.

I am trying to get Excel to email me when one of these dates is 7 days away or less, unless the column says completed. Then I don't want an email.

I want the email to basically say:

EMPLOYEE NAME is due for their WK? meeting within 7 days. Please schedule this in.

The employee name and WK4/8/12 should be pulled from the sheet.

Logically speaking, this is what I am looking for...

8 more repliesHiI want to ccreate a calender which shows all the months, days and dates.And when one click on a day of the month another box shows which explanes the task of the day.One should be able to combine different data with different dates.The box is on the same sheet as the calender.i.e. : Clicking on Thurday jan. 21. 2010, on the calender, the boxs shows information on tasks etc. done that specific day

re: Clicking on Thurday jan. 21. 2010, on the calender, the boxs shows information on tasks etc. done that specific dayThis makes sense, although it would be helpful to know the extent of the "tasks" for that day. Are we talking about pages of tasks or a simple task like "Back Up Data"?re: One should be able to combine different data with different dates.What does this mean?

7 more repliesHi,

I have disabled every auto-correct and auto-format option I can find, but Excel still won't stop changing my numbers to dates. If I type 1-2, it automatically changes it to 2-Jan, and so on. I'd really appreciate any suggestions you can offer me. My bio grade appreciates it, too. Thanks.

Have you tried formatting the field(s) to text?

When I enter dates in the Uk english format (dd/mm/yyyyy) in Excel 2007, even though they are formatted to display dd/mm/yyyy, they are dispayed in the US english format (mm/dd/yyyy). The formula bar shows that the cell contains a date in the UK format as entered. The language setting in Excel Options is UK.

I wrote a macro containing an InputBox requesting a date, having previously defined the variable for this input as Date. The input is entered in the UK format but when assigning the value of this variable to a cell, it is displayed in US format. Not only is it displayed contrary to the custom format, but the content is rubbish. For example, when the date 31 October 2009 is entered into the input box in the UK format, 31/10/09, it is transposed to a date value of October 09, 1931 in the formula bar and displayed in the cell as 10/09/31.

Any ideas???
