Hi

my boss has asked me to write an excel sheet that will timestamp workers log in times

workers are to use a password known only to themselves

password box will be blanked to hide password but once person logs on with correct password then it time stamps in next box

can anyone help me please

for example
name password
sharon 123
paul 987
fred 666

thank you
 

Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

Sorry, there would also of course be a LOG-OUT column too where they need to enter password again and needs to be timestamped too

The sheet would look something like this
<TABLE style="WIDTH: 782pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=1037><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 95pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 4644" width=127><COL style="WIDTH: 71pt;

Hi and welcome to the board!!!
What is the purpose of the "password"? Why not just let Excel check the Username?
Also, your design is not very friendly to Data Analysis!! Can you explain what you (or your boss) really needs?

hi

thank you for getting back to me.
I work in a bookies, a new gaffer has bought company and he is very untrusting

he wants people to have to clock in but doesnt want to pay a penny to have clocking in machines installed.

the password idea is because each shop has different staff working in them and there will be only one user as staff are not computer literate.

i only know bits and pieces, mostly repairing pc's but i use excel alot but only with basic functions and calculations, but not very good with VB, have seen some programs similar to what i am looking for on this site,but dont know how to alter them

the design is just something simple to keep the miser happy, he just wants proof that people come to work and do a full shift whilst they are there. he obviously hasnt figured that cashiers could quite easily get managers to sign them in by giving them their password! but not my problem

Hey brummy,

I'm not one of the Excel experts here, but I do know a lot about what you're asking for. Car dealerships are my clients and even some of them have gotten to the point of thumbprint clocking in/out to prevent employees from 'friend clocking in' times.

But, what you are asking for as a whole is a fairly large project(rather than a few lines of code) and would really require the following:
1) Database of valid/unique login names with vlookup() tables & coding to manage it.
2) Logon/Password entry module to vlookup() name database to validate true user.
3) Excel doesn't easily hide a password entry box, you may need to do some searching here to find how to get this done.
4) Managing the timestamps in the database to then get meaningful clockin/clockout reporting(which, I'm sure the bossman wants in the first place.) As lense pointed out, you may want to re-think your database layout to be more conducive to accomplishing everything.

You originally asked about timestamps - several ways to accomplish, but this is some simple code to place a literal of the current date/time into a cell:
Code:
    Range("G1").FormulaR1C1 = "=NOW()"
    ActiveCell.Value = ActiveCell.Value

Hi Jfarc,

dont think thatmuch programming would be needed really

all i am asking is how to write the follwing in VB

if PASSWORD="123" then manager = "kevin" & LOGIN=now
if PASSWORD="123" then manager = "kevin" & LOGOUT=now

and the same for the other staff, but i just dont know much about VB to be able to do it on my own

as for staff, there is only 6 managers and 6 cashiers so the database would not be that big

What i need is someway of the macro recognising a three number password from 12 and labelling the box with employee name

and producing a time stamp next to it

for instance if c2 = "123" then b2 = "kevin" and d2 = now

can anyone please help?

brummy,

The below code will do what you've asked for in post#9 above:
Code:
Sub TimeStamp()
    If Range("C2").Value = "123" Then
        Range("B2").FormulaR1C1 = "Kevin"
        Range("D2").FormulaR1C1 = Time
        Selection.NumberFormat = "[$-F400]h:mm:ss AM/PM"
    End If
End Sub

You can get rid of the 'Format' line if you've already formatted all the 'Time' cells properly.

You will begin to find that it is not procedurally proper and difficult to manage to 'hard code' variables ("Kevin", etc) inside your code. This is why you should set things up in tables as briefly described in post#7.

This specific project would be more easily done with MS Access if you have it avail and are somewhat familiar with it. You could do everything that is needed without any program coding and very little knowledge of Access.

But, to each his own! Good luck.
