Workdays for a market open Mon, Wed, Friday?
Yes! Use "0101011" for the weekend argument in NETWORKDAYS.INTL or WORKDAY.INTL. The 7 digits start on Monday. 1 means it is a weekend.

This code uses the Open Event form the "ThisWorkbook" code module. [Project Explorer in the VBA Editor Alt+F11 then Ctrl+R if it is not up]

It works by checking each time the Workbook is opened for todays date.


Private Sub Workbook_Open()
'This code go's into the "ThisWorkbook" module.
Dim myTime
myTime = Time

'If today is older than the date below run:
If Now() >= #9/20/2006# Then
MsgBox "Time is Up!"
End If

'If the time is between the times below run:
If Time >= "6:00:00 PM" And Time <= "6:35:00 PM" Then
myMsg = MsgBox(prompt:="The current System-Time is:" & _
vbCr & vbCr & " " & _
FormatDateTime(myTime, vbLongTime) & vbCr & vbCr & vbCr & _
" and, ""Today"" is:" & vbCr & vbCr & _
FormatDateTime(Date, vbLongDate) & vbCr & vbCr, Title:=Now())
End If

End Sub
