Can a group of cells or more be locked once they reached or passed a certain time frame and date that follows your PC clock, and can it be set to a time that you decide on in a macro. The other question, Can this lockout macro clock that was set to a pacific time frame can it stop people from altering their PC clock in anyway for e.g.; 'I tried to turn back the time but I got this message - "This cell is Locked due to your lateness".
I have a series of external database connections that I run in Excel, connecting to a Server based DB and running some SELECT statements. (ingres). We may have up to dozen of client machines accessing the ingres DB at any time. All is good at this point but when excel goes to INSERT some calculated data back to the main database, it appears that my Excel spreadsheet connection is locking the database when it connects, keeping other people from using their client connections.
first question: Does anyone know if the connection excel uses to run sql statements via external database connection will indeed prevent other users from connecting to the main database?
second question: if so, is there a setting or something that can make excel more "passive"?
I am working for a company that has offices around the world, and I would like to see the time in all offices, when I am working in excel without using the internet (or spending monay on loads of wall clocks!)
I have a start time in one column, end time in another and a column with the difference between the two. In another column I have profit. In the last column I have profit per hour where I divide the profit by the hours, but since one is hours and the other is a number it gives me an error.
What i try to achieve is: from 00:00hrs to 24:00hrs = 24hrs which is 1.0 day Have made the attached spredsheet to calculate it correctly to 1 day. But if you look on the attachment the "total hrs" is saying 00:00 (it transfers to 00:00 when i am putting in 24:00). Basically how am I able to make Excel to display 24:00 insted of 00:00. Maybe there is an add ins availible like the pop up calendar but for times instead.
Okay I have a basic Time clock calculation in excel (i.e.-(timeout1-timein1)+(timeout2-timein2)="Total time"). What I need to do is convert the "Total time" to be changed to 3 min increments. I don't know if that is the best way to put it but let me show you the chart for the conversions. 3 mins=.05 hrs, 6 mins=.10, etc etc etc.
So lets put this into us
A1 (timein1)= 6:42 AM A2(timeout1)=11:30 AM A3(timein2)= 12:00 PM A4(timeout2)= 5:00 PM (17:00)
So A5(Total Time)=9h 48min, but I need it to equal 9.80 hrs because with the conversion, 48 mins is .80 of an hour. So how can I set up A5 (Total time) to automatically do this calculation? This website is how I would like it to work http://www.1728.com/timecard.htm
I've calculated the time of hours worked by staff using th 24 hour clock - "hh:mm" format.
When summing up the hours, it goes a bit haywire, i.e.
Staff A = 12:30 Staff B = 14:00 Sum = 02:30
Total should equal 26:30 (26 and a half hours), however I get returned 02:30. I assume it is down to the 24 hour clock and I so I tried adding 24 to it in the formula bar to get the right answer and it didn't work.
I need a Simple Timer on Userform which uses Excel files through VBA.
After getting User's choice, say the text "Ben", which is a portion of a name, my code collects data of all records having "Ben" from the Excel file, which has about 5000 records (still growing) and displays the resulting data of the selected records in Listview control. It is a lengthy code.
If a particular search has more records to display, then displaying them on listview control takes more time. So, I am using a progress bar to tell the user that work is being done.
Is it possible to run a timer to display something like a digital clock to show the user the elapsed time. In addition to the progress bar, the user will also see the running clock (or timer) and wait until all chosen records are displayed.
Is there anyway of getting an "Active Clock" in a cell. I know the =now() thing, but this is not what I am looking for, I would like to get a clock that updates by the minute, without having to select a cell, or make excel do a calculation.
I need to calculate how much time I've got left before the earliest order needs to be despatched (it might be 2 or more on every day). This wouldn't be a problem if orders would be placed daily. But for every item it varies. For example: for "X" product there is an order in 3 days time to be despatched at 19:00. I have built a live clock in the spreadsheet but I can't work out the formula.
P.S. Also I need two time formats, first - days(text) hh:mm second - just a numeric value that can be formated as [hh:mm].
I want to make a Word Clock. Instead of showing the time as "12:30" I want it to show the words "It is half past twelve"
To Do this I've created a Square of Letters on an excel sheet (one letter per cell!) with black letters and black back grounds, when it is 12.30 I want the relevant letters to (cells) to change the text coulor to white so it shows up.
The cell I'm using are from D8 to P19 and the time is shown in A1
So lets say at 12.30 Cells D9, F12, H14 and M16 need to change from Black Text Colour to White Coulour,
I need a code or some VB that says "If A1 = 12.30 the Cells D9,F12,H14,M16 = White Text Colour, if not Black Text Colour".
Anything in the same line will round to the bolded time.
Example: I arrive to work at 8:09 and go to lunch at 11:59, it will round to 8:12 and 12:00, making my time worked 3:48 or 3.80. Then I get back from lunch at 12:59 and leave at 17:14, which will round to 13:00 and 17:12, making my time worked 4:12 or 4.2 for the 2nd 1/2 of the day and 8:00 or 8.0 hours for the day.
Time In----------Time Out----------Total Time----------Decimal Time----------Total Hours ...8:12.................12:00..................3:48......................3.80 ..13:00................17:12..................4:12......................4.20..........................8.00
The problem is I want to write the actual time and not have to round everything myself and yet I need the decimal time to match what my time clock actually calculates from.
My current formula for the decimal shown above as 3.80 is this: =(HOUR(F7)*60+MINUTE(F7))/60 My current formula for the total time for the day (regular hours) is this: =IF((((E7-D7)+(I7-H7))*24)>8,8,((E7-D7)+(I7-H7))*24) My current formula for overtime is this: =IF(((E7-D7)+(I7-H7))*24>8,((E7-D7)+(I7-H7))*24-8,0)
This is not a time clock, it is my personal copy of what my time for the week was/is, so that I can compare it to the actual time card that I have to sign off on.
I have a date base that is used as a job status board developed in excel that has locations, times, clock and other areas. What I am looking for is a way of playing a sound when the time approaches 5 min before the time in the excel cell that has been entered into the job status board...
