Track Date And Time A File Is Opened

I found some vba codes in this forum which record the date and time in column A when a file is opened.

Can the codes be modified such that when someone opens the file the second time on the same day, the date and time are recorded in column B?

Track The Time From 1-NY To 10-Lukket

So if we take first line the defect id is 10. The date entered is 21-08-2007 and the status is 1-NY ( means new)

Third line the defect ID is still 10. The date is changed to 04-01-2008. The previous status was 03- Under vurdering ( to be evalueted). The new status is 10-lukket.

I want to be able to track the time from 1-NY to 10-Lukket.

Now the even more tricky part. As you can see other defects go over different statuses e.g defect number 1000 here.

The sheet I have is 13000 rows and I have a total of 2300 defects

Calculating Time To Track Work Hours
I can't figure out how to do a proper formula for calculating time. For instance I have one column that says "Time In", the next is "Time Out" and the other is "Lunch Time". My calculation needs to be this:

Find the total hours between the Time In and Time Out and then Minus the lunch time to get total hours worked for the day. The only way I can get this to work is using 24 Hour time format. Is there another way?

Corrupt File: Filename.xls Cannot Be Opened
I was working on a tax file yesturday, just a long long list of receipts. and the file is password protected. However, I went to open it today, and I get a message that says: "Filename.xls cannot be opened. the file may be read only, or you may be trying to access a read only location. Or, the server the file is located on may not be responding."

It's on my USB Drive. I've tried copying it to my HD so I can play with a copy, but no dice. When I try that, I get another error message, : Cannot copy Filename.xls. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. I've tried the various fixed suggested in the excel help files to no avail. I did a search on the forum, but didn't find anything that seemed to apply or help me. The computer I'm trying to open it on has Office 2003, the one I most recently worked on the file on has office XP. Not sure if this was a source of the problem. Doesn't seem like it should be. Hasn't been in the past. I'm not even getting to the dialogue box asking for my password yet.

Toolbar When Work Papers Are Opened From Within The Engagement File Room
I am an IT Consultant and my client is doing a workstation refresh. They are a CPA firm. They use software called ProSystem Fx Engagement as a filing closet sort of thing. This has a toolbar Excel when work papers are opened from within the Engagement file room. In the Engagement toolbar there is an icon which allows the user to check all boxes. I have contacted the vendor and they said they know nothing about this and it is unsupported. I am trying to migrate to the user's new machine (helps save alot of time) but kinda stuck in a rut. I am assuming this maybe is a custom macro? I am not an Excel guy, I do server stuff etc... but trying to please my client, I included a screen shot of the toolbar and highlighted the button he would click to make this function work. This is Excel 2003 w/ SP4, and Windows XP Pro w/ SP3

Ensure Active Workbook When File Opened By Windows Scheduler
This code opens a UserForm in the Workbook_Open event when the file is opened. After 10 seconds, the message is supposed to go away if the user doesn't click anything, then macros that follow are supposed to run. It is intended to allow a user to stop the macros. This works when you open the file manually (macro security must be low), you'll see a msgbox pop up after the UserForm goes away.

However, when the workbook is opened as a Windows Scheduled Task (Windows/ Control Panel/ Scheduled Tasks), the UserForm does not come to the front of the screen unless a user actually clicks on the window. It just flashes at the bottom indefinitely.

Automatic Link Update WITHOUT Prompt When File Opened Not Working (XL2003)
Despite setting the "Edit/Links/Startup Prompt/Don't display the alert and update links" option numerous times, my workbook still prompts me to update links every time I open it. The option seems to be set okay (it is preset whenever I go into the "Edit/Links/Startup Prompt" dialog), but it doesn't seem to affect the workbook's startup behaviour. The workbook contains a ComboBox control that is initialized with customer names from another workbook, which is included in the References for this main workbook.

I am using Excel 2003 (from Office Pro 2003) under Windows XP (SP1). I believe this used to work without the prompt when I was working on this app last fall (I'm not sure, as my memory of specific behaviours back that far is fuzzy). However, it has been persistently prompting ever since I started working on this app again this spring/summer. Was there perhaps a bad fix to Office 2003 (that I automatically applied) that broke this feature?

Date/Time Formula: Pick Up A Date With Time Entry On A Worksheet And Place It Into A TextBox On A UserForm
I am attempting to pick up a date with time entry on a worksheet and place it into a TextBox on a UserForm. Format on the sheet is mm/dd/yyyy h:mm AM/PM. The UserForm is placing the value as mm/dd/yyyy 12:00 AM. here is the

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
If Not Range("dDate").Value = "" Then
TextBox2.Value = Range("dDate").Value
TextBox2.Text = Format(DateValue(TextBox2.Text), "mm/dd/yy h:mm AM/PM")
TextBox2.Value = ""
End If
End Sub

"dDate" is the named range where the date is sitting. The format is also set on the TextBox2 exit event. Can anyone see why only the date portion is being transfered with the default 12:00 AM for no time component of the value?

Format Date & Time To Show Day, Date & Time

Format - ddd dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm

This works fine when I format the cells manually, but when I try to format them via macro '29/03/2009 00:30' becomes 'Sun 29/03/2009 12:30' which is obviously a totally different time! Has anyone got ay idea why it might be doing this?

Saving Multiple Workbooks At One Time/file As A Text File

On Error Goto InvalidName
strName = Sheet1. Range("V77")
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs strName

It will work on the first sheet but none after that. I need to have each workbook saved with the value in cell V77. Also if that is possible, is it possible to change where the file is saved as well?

Right now I have a master workbook that will open the 7 other workbooks, paste data onto several pages in each workbook. I would like the macro to save the workbooks. The workbooks are named: 02 Tuesday, 03 Wednesday, 04 Thursday, 05 Friday, 06 Saturday, 07 Sunday, 08 Monday.

Delete Date & Time Cells Based On Time
I have a large dataset where the first column is date and time i.e. "20/01/2005 03:41:06" and I want to delete certain rows based on the times. I have already tried playing about with macro's but failed fairly spectacularly so far. I have code from someone else to delete cells if the value equals a certain time but this doesn't work as the cell contains the date too.

I have already recorded one macro to reformat the data to as the software return 10 timestamped samples per hour and I want 8 i.e. every three hours so there is constant separation for statistical purposes. Both the macros are shown below so you can see what I have.

Ideally I would like to replace the line - If (r.Cells(n, 1) = TimeValue("22:41:06")) ............ - with one that reads - If (r.Cells(n, 1) CONTAINS TimeValue........ - but I don't know if that is possible? If not is there a way to separate the time from the date into 2 columns and then I can delete rows based on the time column using the code below? .......
