Excel Timer Function

Jul 23, 2014

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?..

Real Time Countdown Timer Function With Ticker

Aug 23, 2008

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).

Implementing A Stopwatch

Jun 2, 2003

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.

Is this possible with Excel and VBA?

Stopwatch- Activities

Feb 2, 2005

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.

How To Make Stopwatch Run Continuously?

Jul 31, 2009

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.

Add Seconds To Timer

Dec 15, 2006

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#
txtTimer.Text = Format((FinalTime - Time), "s")
Loop Until (Time >= FinalTime) Or (Skip = 1)
txtTimer.Text = "Time complete"
End Sub

VBA Count Down Timer

Nov 20, 2007

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

Excel Automation - Timer?

Nov 5, 2009

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.

Countdown Timer On Userform?

Apr 2, 2013

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".

Private Sub PPackCall14_Click()
'lbCountDown, lbMinutes
If PPackCall14 = True Then
Dim i As Integer

Time To Completion Countdown Timer

May 8, 2014

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.

Conditional Formatting As A Countdown Timer?

Oct 21, 2009

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.

Option To Not Run Macro On Startup With Timer

Apr 14, 2014

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]
