how do i keep a time and date function live??

I want to have a countdown and have done that but it does not keep up to date unless close and open it again.
 

Excel Facts

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

As far as i know its not possible to have a "Active" Visual countdown timer, within excel because the formulas such as NOW() etc will only refresh when you actively do somthing within the worksheet.

You could always press delete in a empty cell, or refresh the page which will cause the functions to re-calculate.
