Hello,

I have a macro in excel which needs to be run twice a day and I dont even want to open the excel sheet. How can I make this process automatic?

If I can convert the macro to Exe file, maybe I can put it to my task manager. Please advice.

Many thanks

Ped

Hi
Add the macro code to excel open event
You can open an excel file and make it to run twice a day
by creating a new task and adding its path to "Scheduled Tasks" within double quotes under (Start>>Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools)

Hi and thanks a lot.

Now I can schedule opening the excel. What I don't know how to do is:

1. To add macro code to excel open event
2. To close the excel file and save it automatically.


Many thanks again

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
