So I have a computer that runs production spreadsheets continually. Excel always open. Different spreadsheets continually but personal.xlsm stays open all the time.

We have a production schedule we need to adhere to and it requires an action every so many hours. The number of hours between actions can change.

What I am looking for is a alarm clock that tells the operator to do an action 20 minutes before the action is late.

So I need to start the timer from the scheduled time and not the time the application was opened. I also would like the number of hours between alerts to address a cell range.

I would also like the alert to be audio as well as msg box.

Anybody have any idea?
