Excel running automatic mail send for expired dates

Question: Excel running automatic mail send for expired dates

Hello, I have been having trouble parsing out the code for an automatic notification system that will send out an email when a certification is about to expire. I keep getting error messages on one or two lines of code. I have attached the code that I have so far and a dummy spreadsheet of what I am trying to accomplish. The goal is to explore the automatic email notification option for the LEOSA Expiration date (column D), the Concealed Carry Permit Expiration (column G). For column ?D? and ?G ?, when an expiration is within 90 days the box turns yellow and sends a notification email. When the expiration is within 30 days it turns RED and an email notification is distributed. At each of these milestones (90 and 30 Day) the request is to determine if an ?auto send? type process can be utilized.

Good Afternoon all,

I have been trying to make my register e-mail when an expiry date is approaching. Now I've made a code to try and get this to work however I get a error 400 message.
The e-mail it needs to go to is in (A1)
The expiry dates are in row (P3:R164)
I would like it to also send the persons name in (J3:L164) within the e-mail as I havent worked this out yet.

Attached is the example workbook.

The code I am using is:

The higher ranges, 15-19, 20-24, etc. are fine because Excel doesn't interpret the first 2 digits as a month. How can I stop Excel from automatically entering the date in place of the typed range?

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?

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'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.

Answer:Excel 2016 to send Outlook email reminders on various dates

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.

But, actually I had gone through some of the posts (like Rollin, OBP, and Diego) as per my need and I did saw OBP used to share some links which already covers this my new thread, but since I am totally beginner to MS Excel, so I could not understand many of the things. So, with left chance I thought initiating the new thread, so that I can aware of step-by-step to "automatically send an email from excel on date basis". Hope you all fine with this.

So, here is what I need, I have a sheet (which contains columns Request No, Owner, Run Date, Due Date to Close Request). Usually sometimes we miss to close the requests as per the due dates.

So, could you please share detailed information on how can my excel automatically send an email whenever the "Run Date" crosses??

As per my understanding after reading the existing posts, I thought of giving you some sample data from my side. In my attached workbook, there are two sheets ("Request Tracker" and "Email"). "Request Tracker" sheet contains the base data on which "Email" sheet contains what I need in my email when excel send an email.

Basically, I have created a very simple Excel spreadsheet as an example, but what I would like to do is the following:

I have several employees (100 +/-) that require training in various fields. Each training certification is good for 1-yr. I am trying to figure a way for Excel to automatically send an email to my Microsoft Outlook whenever that training date is set to expire. I would like to have it email me 30-days before it expires. The problem is that I don't record and notate it by the date the training expires, but rather by the date they were trained. An example would be that I trained someone on 5-3-13 and they will be expiring 30-days from now. I have it entered on the spreadsheet as 5-3-13. How can I make Excel automatically generate an email warning me of the upcoming expiration date? I am admittedly not very proficient in computer language, but I am more than willing to learn.

subject: 'Charts for signing'

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?

Answer:How can I auto-populate dates in Excel based on other dates?

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: 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.

Hi all,

This is my first post. Essentially my problem is one that is no doubt relatively straight forward, however I am an absolute novice (as in no experience) in VBA. I have a multi-sheet workbook that is being used for people to enter their work times (each sheet is a different employee, with each row being a separate day). I would like (if possible) to have an email sent automatically to an end user if they haven't completed their time sheet from the day before. I have the IF function in place so that a cell will trigger either send of don't send depending on the value of the time cell at the end of the previous day "=IF(AND(B10=TODAY()-1,(F10=$H$1)),("SEND"),("DON?T"))" where B10 is today's date, and F10 is a blank time.

I have each employees email address listed on their individual sheet. Essentially I feel like I have all the necessary components together (the easy bit) I just don't know how to put it all together.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, even more so if you could explain what is actually going on!

Send to mail recipient works as it should, the send as attachment does not.

I made sure Outlook is the default mail client in Outlook and IE. I tried rebooting and the same errors occur. I have tried multiple excel files to no avail. The same thing happens in WORD.

Short term solution is saving the file to the hard drive and then opening Outlook and attaching the file that way.

The OS is XP and the office suite is XP/2002. Let me know if you need anything else.

Thank you - Scott

Answer:Excel 2002 cannot send to mail recipient as attachment

Have you run Detect and Repair from Outlook's Help menu?
If that doesn't work, try running Repair on the whole Office suite from the control panel.

I just got a new computer at work. On my old computer, which has the same operating system and software I am currently using, I was able to send a workbook directly from MS Excel into Lotus Notes. I have Office 2003 and Lotus Notes 8.5. My LAN admin is at a loss on how to get this to work. I added the Mail Recipient (with Attachment) from the customized command menu but it is greyed out - PLEASE HELP

I know this works, it did before but no can here can figure out how to make it work again.

I can get the 'Send for Review' function to work so why don't they both work?

I am trying to send some reports to a set of IDs. Referring to the enclosed excel will help understand the issue.

Column A has the set of IDs to whom mails have to be sent.
I need to filter out the data pertaining to the IDs and send only relevant data to respective people.

For eg: Lets take the vakue 1 in column A. I want excel to filter out 1 in column A and send the details from B1 to I5 to the ID 1. Similarly for ID2 and so on. I use microsoft outlook to send emails. Outlook recognizes these IDs, so the email addresses are not required to send the mail. Just ID would do.

Can some content also be added, apart from just providing the data.

Is this possible and if so can someone please share the code for the same. Im just a beginner. Looking forward to some assistance.

Thank you.

Answer:Send mail from excel to unique values in a particular column

Welcome to the board.

1. I checked Ron de Bruin's site, his Mail Range or Selection code looks like it'll do the job with a little tweaking for your requirements.

2. For the tweaking to work, the data must be pre-sorted by column A.

3. To run the code, you must select a data cell (i.e. any cell in A2:I10) & then click the "Mail Range" button.

4. The tweaking is: (i) a few lines between "added code" & "end added code" (ii) the Set Source = Range line (iii) the .To = Addressee line.

5. There's also a line .Display ; needs to be changed to .Send if automatic sending is required. Near that line are others such as Subject = "This is the Subject line" and Body = "Hi there", adjusting those would cover "Can some content also be added?".

6. To view the code, press ALT+F8, highlight Mail_Range, click on "Edit".

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 payment is 10 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. Q), with subject "Vendor Payment (Col. C) is due on Due date(Col. M)", and body "Dear Name(Col. P), please update the payment status".

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

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

Hi all,

I know there has been a lot on this subject (so apologies) but as my knowledge in this area is limited and as I can't find anything that matches my exact needs I am struggling.

Basically, as part of my job I manage records in the office but I sometimes forget when things needs renewing etc.

What I would like is a for an e-mail to be sent through and to my outlook when a date has been reached.

Please see the attached: CSCS.xlsx

If CSCS tests had to be done every year for example, Paul Smith would be due another on 01/01/2014. I would like to set up a code so that when it got 2 weeks before that time, I got an e-mail saying 'CSCS Test due' and 'Smith' (i.e.. cell C1 and Column A for reliant person, in this case A3).

Is this something that is do-able and easy to set up?

Thanks, charli

Hello all,

Am hoping someone may be able to help me with a task I am trying to complete.

I have a work book that I need to edit on a daily basis, and I ideally want to be able to send an email to specific email address when a date is input.

I have attached a copy of the workbook for perusal.

To try and explain - rows 3 to 11 contain data that I would want to be emailed to the email address listed in column c (drop down menu). But what I want to achieve is that the email is sent as a meeting/apt for the user listed in C (from the drop down menu of email addresses). But I want that meeting/apt to be made for the date in the BOOKED TO field.

I appreciate that this may not be possible as an automated process, so if it is possible, to have a 'send mail' button configured at the end of each row to send an email to the recipient that would also help.

I have done a fair bit of searching and looking at various bits of code - but I will have to be honest and say I have no idea on how to implement the code into what I am trying to achieve.

If anyone is able to spend time looking into this for me I would be ever so grateful - appreciate all are busy!

Many thanks in advance.

System: Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007

When I Right-Click an Excel file, go to Send To, then select Mail Recipient, to send it to an email addressee, as I type the first characters of the address it automatically fills in a previously deleted email group. I have deleted an Outlook Email Group and renamed and restructured it, but the system keeps inserting the old deleted entry. Since the separate addressees are still in the system, it remembers and inserts them via an erased group. Its memory is too great!

Outlook automatically inserts, the e-mail group, in the To: field? It doesn't give it as an option in a drop down list?

I'm new here and need some help. I am very green in VBA and need some help with the code to create a macro that will send email reminders to my team members automatically when a date passes. I've looked through the forums and have found similar solutions, but have yet to make any of them work with my spreadsheet. I have attached my spreadsheet here and will tell you a little about what I need it to do. I will input my Project name, number, and task description into the columns A-C for the associated projects submittals we receive. Then, I will select the team from drop down boxes in columns D, F, H, and J. These populate from sheet1. Once the team is selected, the corresponding emails will be placed into columns E, G, I, and K (hidden columns currently). I will then input a date that the task was received in column L, and columns M and N will autofill for a mid due date(5 days after receipt) and a due date(10 days after receipt). (colors currently change when each date passes using Conditional Formatting)
So, what I need is for a short email to be created when a date is put into column L which pulls the data from the rest of the sheet. I would also like it to send a reminder when the mid due date passes (column M) and a final reminder on the due date(column N).

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!

Answer:Dates and Excel

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))

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

Answer:Excel and Formatting Dates

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.

I have an excel document. How can I get excel to automatically populate several fields based on a date in another field. For example: If field A5 has a date of 02/01/ do I have Excel automatically generate fields C6 thru C14 with dates of 2/1 thru 2/8? The fields in C6 thru C14 would change based on the date entered in C5. Any help is greatly appreciated

Quick question.

Lets say I have a date.


Is there a formula that would return and IF statement?

For example

I am looking to all the dates between 12/15 and 01/15

I have tried to create a formula using the IF statement, but cant only get the first half.


But how do I get the second half for it to check if if the date is less then 01/15? every time I try I get an error.

Answer:Solved: Excel Dates

Howdy. If I understand correctly. Be sure to check year, since the year will be in the cell whether it displays or not.

I have two columns of dates - a Due Date and a Completed Date - I want to compare the dates in each column and have the results appear in a table I have created on a separate sheet in the same workbook. If the completed date is after the due date for a certain type of information (contained in another column; ie, IMAC or Out of Scope), I want to count that instance as "Missed" in my table. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Answer:Need help comparing dates in Excel.

I don't quite understand how the "IMAC or Out of Scope" information relates to your question.If all you are trying to do is compare 2 values (dates) a simple IF function should do it for you:=IF(A1>B1, "Missed", "")This will return Missed when A1 is greater than B1 and return a blank cell if not.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

excel insists on changing the year I enter (such as 2005) to the current year (2011) after I have specifically formatted the cells in the date format I selected. For example, I enter 5/2005 and end up with 5/2011. No matter what date format I select from the drop-down, it keeps doing this.

Answer:why does excel change my dates

I formatted some cells as Custom m/yyyyWhen I enter 5/2005 it displays 5/2005 and shows 05/01/2005 in the fomula bar.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

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

Answer:Excel if then statements using dates

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.

Hi there.

I am trying in Excel 2007, to do the following:

A guy phones in a fault. The date and time are recorded. When the fault is fixed, the date and time are recorded again. I need to calculate the response time, but I need it to only look at business hours, which are 8 to 5, Monday through Friday, when calculating this. Some faults may stretch over more than one working day, or over a weekend.

Is there a simple way to do this?

Thanks in advance for any help.

This should be simple and I thought I had it nailed, but the formula is not working, so I am obviously doing something wrong.I have two adjacent columns. The first column is always populated with a date and the second column may be populated with a date or may be blank. I am trying to determine if one or both dates are greater than 3/1/2008, then the row is "OK"; if neither date (or if the second column is blank) is before 3/1/2008, then that row is out. Here's what I tried to use: =IF(OR(H2>DATEVALUE("03/01/2008"),I2>DATEVALUE("03/01/2008")),"OK""OUT").The formula just does not return the correct result. Thanks for the help.
