    I want to create a countdown timer, so that in cell A1 I have today (using Now formula) In cell A2 I have a set date (say, Christmas)

    Then be able to show how many days, hours, minutes and seconds left to go, all in separate cells.

    Any help would be appreciated....

    You could use appliation Ontime method.
    But I have found that using the IETimer is
    easer and doesn't give you too much flicker.

    Post if you want me to send example....easier
    then explaining it.

    If your NOW() is in A1 and the target date/time is in B1.

    Use:

    C1 =INT(B1-A1)&" Days"
    D1 =TEXT(B1-A1,"hh")&" Hours"
    E1 =RIGHT(TEXT(B1-A1,"h:mm"),2)&IF(RIGHT(TEXT(B1-A1,"h:mm"),2)+0<>1," Minutes"," Minute")
    F1 =RIGHT(TEXT(B1-A1,"h:mm:ss"),2)&IF(RIGHT(TEXT(B1-A1,"h:mm:ss"),2)+0<>1," Seconds"," Second")

    it won't countdown automatically, but someone could put some code behind it to do just that.
