I have already made a stopwatch function where I can click start and click stop and get the time difference accurate to one-one thusandth of a second, but I need a single cell ( let's say E1 ) to display the continuously changing elapsed time from when I click on my Start button.
In cell A1 we have the word "one", and in B1 we have the word "two". Would it be possible to have a timer function run for 5 seconds, counting from 5 to 0, and everytime the timer reaches 0, the word in A1 is copied and pasted into cell C1, the timer resets and counts again to zero, this time when it gets to zero, it copies and pastes the word in cell B1 to C1. So it's like a flip flop function, with cell C1 changing it's value every 5 seconds. Also, this code needs to start running automatically when the sheet is opened. Is this at all possible with VBA?..
I am trying to insert a timer into a column cell range that will countdown in hours, mins, and sec, when I enter the time. example: when I enter the "time in hr,mins,sec" it will start to countdown to Zero automatically, when I hit the enter key.
I'm playing a game that requires me to keep track of money that is increased by a variable amount (pre-calculated and in a cell) and in a fixed time interval of 51 minutes weather I play it or not so I want to be able to keep track of the progress of the money gain outside of the game.
So, I need to know the macro coding for a real time counter that will increase the total money amount in one cell based on the variable income (declared in another cell) in the 51 minute intervals.
now... I also need excel to keep track of the value increase even if excel is closed (by the difference in time from when excel was closed last).
What I am trying to do is have a macro that do a comparison between 2 cells every 100 milliseconds. One of the cell is constant updating from RTD (Real Time Data). And if its false, to nothing. However if true, I would want it to run some codes and exit the macro/procedure. I also need some way of stopping the macro at any time.
I need to be able to make an accurate stopwatch in Excel, I want to be able to time a load of Ice Hockey players doing sprints using a laptop on the ice. Excel is perfect cos I can then have a list of players, and just click the button next to the name for them to start..then stop the time. and the Dt is there loaded.
My ultimate goal would be to then modify the code and have have a hardware circuit connected to the parallel port so that the timing could be donw with an external circuit triggering the stopwatch. I'm lookinf for something accurate to hundredths of a second.
I tried out yjoshi's stopwatch, but when I open the stop watch (file was attached in that thread) it is not possible to work with other docs in Excel, and I also have trouble locating the VB code for the actons.
Therefore I am wondering if anyone have any solution on how to get the following: I was thinking of a button in cell A1 named "Start", when clicked on start time ( date and time) will be inserted in first available column A.
Cell B1 contains a button called "Stop", clicked on will put time in column B and move the marker to cell Dx (x, being row number of the latest stop time.
Why D and not C? In column C I was thinking of a formula calculating the time and in column D I will fill in a short explanation what I did during the time.
I have the code below for creating a stopwatch in excel. I was trying to see if there is a way to change this code to assign it to a toggle button so if you hit one part the stopwatch would start and then the other it would stop.
I'm looking to have my stopwatch run continuously until "and only until" a command button ("Stop") is clicked. I already have a code and stopwatch in place. I have 5 command buttons: start (starts the timer), call (activates/hyperlinks to another sheet where I have more command buttons and data entry needed/), stop (stops the timer), reset (resets the timer), and record (stamps the elapsed time on the sheet1).
They work great BUT the problem is, when the cell is touched (i.e. when you type a character or double click on any cell even if it's on a different sheet, or even on a different workbook) the timer stops!
I'd think that all this would require just a simple string/line inserted in my code. I'm really, really new to VBA and doesn't know how to write my own codes yet. I have to google what I need every time and do trial and error! Just to give you more info-- I'm using this for a call simulation program, in which the user is an operator taking in a call. She would have to be aware of how much time have passed after performing some actions/data entry on the different sheets on the workbook. I hope I've explained it enough. :D Anyway's here's the code I got, which I think needs just a few edits.
I am trying to create a timekeeping workbook that will track the time I spend on certain tasks. I have created the attached worksheet including macros that correctly allows me switch between tasks but I cannot run this set of macros in one workbook and work in another.
Below is my code to display a seconds count down timer in a textbox.
What I want to be able to do is have another textbox where I can enter the number of seconds that the timer will count down.
I don't know how to take a value from the textbox and make it like #12:00:15 AM#
How would I do this?
Sub warmTimer() Dim InitialTime As Single Dim FinalTime As Single InitialTime = Time FinalTime = InitialTime + #12:00:15 AM# Do txtTimer.Text = Format((FinalTime - Time), "s") Loop Until (Time >= FinalTime) Or (Skip = 1) txtTimer.Text = "Time complete" End Sub
I have converted some code that works like a countdown timer and is perfect for my needs apart from one small aspect - it counts down in seconds only, not minutes and seconds. The format I am looking for is X:yy where x is minutes and y is seconds, eg 180 seconds = 3:00. Is there a simple format I can add to a cell that will do the trick? EDIT:I think the Dim at the top of this code is causing the problems as I don't really want to show the date - just minutes and seconds counting down. A sample workbook is included - code is in Thisworkbook, Sheet1 and module1.
Dim CountDown As Date Sub Timer() CountDown = Now + TimeValue("00:00:01") Application.OnTime CountDown, "Reset" End Sub Sub Reset() Dim count As Range Set count = [A1] ' A1 contains the number of seconds for the countdown. count.Value = count.Value - 1 If count <= 0 Then MsgBox "Countdown complete." Exit Sub End If Call Timer End Sub Sub DisableTimer() On Error Resume Next Application.OnTime EarliestTime:=CountDown, Procedure:="Reset", Schedule:=False End Sub
am planning to create a "constant time monitor" in the cell to help monitor expiry dates of chemicals in cell.....the expiry date is predetermined and i can pull them using lookup or something (any better options?).....
I need help in creating the constant time monitors and keep them running and also changing colours as time winds down to give a visual signal to the cell that the chemical is expiring.....am attaching the sample sheet here...
I need to improve this project i've created. right now this project is an Exam for our agents. You can try it first if you want. I've attached the file below.
I need putting a timer that will compute the seconds or minutes it took the agent to finish the exam. timer should start after they click "Take the ETP" button. And finally, creating a screen / a pop-up that will show the ff example.
[I]EXAMPLE:[/I] Name of Examinee Answer: 1. A = Correct 2. B = Incorrect 3. A = Correct 4. C = Correct 5. D = Incorrect
I have a file that I update daily. It involves opening the file, going to a drop down menu and selecting 1 of the listed items and pressing a button to run the macro. Once the macro is complete, I then go back to the dropdown menu and select the next line item and press the same button to run the macro on this. I repeat this task 7times.
All the macro does is load a txt file to a third party system.
I am looking to see if it is possible to reduce the time it takes to do this task.
how to modify, other than one piece) for a simple countdown timer to place on a userform. On my form if a user clicks a check box I display a label that shows a count down from 300 to 0 (best/simplest code I could find to modify for my purposes). But I'd rather it look like a timer counting down from "00:05:00" to "00:00:00".
Code: Private Sub PPackCall14_Click() 'lbCountDown, lbMinutes If PPackCall14 = True Then Dim i As Integer Select Case lbMinutes.Value Case ""
I need to list multiple items that end in, example:at time entered there is 45:14:50 = Hr:Mn:Sec to completion, and would like the date and time of completion or just a countdown to 0 would work. I will have 60 to 70 items running at the same time with different start times and lengths. Picture queueing up items at different times to complete in different length of time and I need to be ready when each item is done. I know this is an Excel forum but I also use Apple Numbers so if either one works better I'm fine with that.
In the attached file, column R is the start time that I enter that needs to be calculated to column S. When I enter an item that takes 54hrs 23min 45seconds to complete, what date and time will it be ready.
The idea is that when they enter the date they recieved their PDR it auto posts the date it needs re doing in column C. To emphasise it and make it easier i am trying to use the formula is part of conditional formatting so that the spreadsheet goes green when date entered, orange when there is 30 days till renewal and red when its over due. I've been trying formulas such as =c2-today()<30 in the conditional formatting box but i cant seem to get it to work.
I have a macro that runs when a spreadsheet is opened however i sometimes need it not to run. Rather then furiously hit escape i was hoping to get a dialog box that would prompt yes/no to run the macro and if an option was not chosen after a few second then to run the macro anyway (so basically only by clicking "no" would you stop the macro from running).
I found this code here that gives me the yes/no message box and the 5 second time-out to get rid of the message box, however if the message times out it doesn't run the macro. what i need to tweak to make it do so if no input comes from the user? [URL]
I am running a spreadsheet to keep track of workshop technician times. The code I am using I have copied and modified from this forum works really well but I need the timer to go in minus time instead of stopping at 00:00:00. It work be really great if the timer cell changed colour it identify that the Technician had run over the allotted time.
When reading a water meter in a large apartment building a meter reader can also click a timer (LAP) button as the meter passes preset intervals. The worksheet would record the "lap times" in separate cells which could then be compared and usage figures can be calculated, allowing the meter reader to know if there is currently a Leak or other problem before leaving the premesis.
In the attached worksheet you can see what I would like the meter reader enters the reading - the light green "Interval List" is created from that reading. The Meter reader then watches the meter clicking the LAP button each time the interval is passed, the current time is then stored to the Pink cells (Similar to the NOW() function), the times are then calculated in other cells like I did in the Blue column in this case showing elapsed time.
I have tried several ways to do this using NOW, but each time all the cells are updated to NOW not just the current cell - and the Single Button woulod be really nice so the meter reader didn't have to look away from the meter.
In it I've developed some lap timers for tracking runners. However to be truly useful, each time I press a LAP button on any one row it really needs to record time with millisecond accuracy, which it currently does not.
I have test file so i want to program when i click on button, it will check every 10s on Heet2.cell(i,4) until that cell has value (take by hand) then check next cell (Cell(i+1),4). I used timer code (pls view code on test.xls file) but it not work properly.
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.
A countdown timer (MM:SS) all in A1. Need keyboard control to PAUSE and STOP. The mouse will be otherwise occupied and its use cannot effect the timer in any way. Easy way to set the timer.
*Most periods are 2:00 but overtime periods are either 1:00 or :30, depending. Also, consolation matches usually follow a 1,2,2 format, so I will need a system to be able to reset the timer to any of these easily.
