Hello, I was wondering if it is possible to create a popup when a user has a shared excel spreadsheet open preventing others from using it. The popup needs to contain a polite reminder, be able to be set to appear at a set time (ie: after 10 minutes) and to continue until the sheet is closed.
I have created the spreadsheets on 2011 Excel Mac but have access to Windows 8 and Excel 2013 at work.

Many thanks.

Hello Abukova,

Read this article by Chip Pearson:-

http://www.cpearson.com/excel/OnTime.aspx

It gives a very good run-down on Excel's OnTime application with examples.

I'm sure its just what you are wanting.
