    Somebody updates a workbook.
    And exits. I would like at this point for a notification to be sent to a list of email addresses, which contains a snapshot of the info that has just been added

    A report has been added to the system about [cell.A1] submitted by [cell.A2]

    easy?

    Where do I start

    That's a big jump from error 1004.

    Have you tried making the workbook a shared one? Tools-> Share workbook.

    This will save changes from different users with comments in changed cells.

    Hi Nate,

    I have done the same Access, but I want to make this system a lot lighter - less fat.

    I want people to be able to fill out a form they get through email. This form will update an excel workbook on a shared network. when this workbook is updated, I would like notification....

    hmmmmm

    is this tricky Nate?

    Tricky....Probably not too bad, depends on your e-mail system. Here's some code which I think uses outlook (I use Notes so I don't mess with Outlook code).

    Just need to mix it with a Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean) procedure or an auto_close procedure. And loop through your recipients.

    Cheers,

    Nate
