Hi all

Is it possible to create an 'alarm clock' in excel that will go off at specific times as defined by me?

e.g. set alarm to go off for 5secs at 14:09:40, 14:24:40 etc, and have excel reading this information from my computer clock?

I tried the help function in excel and this board but have nothing that relates to this specific problem.

Hope someone can help

Kind Regards

RTL

thanks for the reply, yes I looked at the thread you were talking about, but I don't have a clue about VBA! Is there any other way round this?
