    Hi, When I'm using the now function in excel, it does not update automatically.
    Could I write a macro that will update the now function. Basically a macro that performs a calculate every five minutes.

    Thanks is advance.

    You can have the calculate option set to manual and have the recalculate before save option checked and then install the AutoSave add-in and have it autosave every 5 minutes.

    Or take a look at the OnTime function.
