Link Multiple Column Of Dates To Outlook Calendar?
Aug 13, 2014
I have a worksheet that has about 20 columns and 60 rows, but only need the data from 5 of the columns to link with outlook calendar. I want to be able to enter the date of completion of a task in the excel spreadsheet and have an reminder entered into outlook calendar a year later. I would like the Subject of the appointment to be the EMPLOYEE NAME and the Location of the appointment to be the TASK (what the employee has to renew) [these would be the column headers]. The duration can be ALL DAY for all appointments. A reminder would be fantastic!
The only other fear I have is each time I run the macro/VBA it will recreate duplicate appointments.
And I don't know if this is possible but one of the tasks (column) for renewal, ie: drug test, calls for an employee to be randomly selected every quarter. This will cause the employee to have a new annual renewal date in outlook but will outlook still retain the original annual renewal appointment date? I am sure we can live with this, but just a thought if there is a possibility of removing the original appointment it would be amazing.
I have attached example of worksheet. The yellow highlighted column headers contain the information I need renewal appointments created for.
Attached is what I use as a Calendar Macro and it works great for single active cell use.
I have a column for 'Notes' and I can only use 1 cell per item so every time I have an update about a specific item I go the to notes section and put a date and leave few spaces then type in whatever the notes are. Currently I'm doing it manually and I tried to use my macro on the Notes column and what it does is to remove everything in the cell and replace it with whatever date I choose in the calendar.
find a way to use my current Calendar Macro to add a date in the cell instead replacing everything in the cell with a date.
It is for a calibration spreadsheet that I run that keeps track of when items are due to be calibrated.
It works at the moment and has populated my outlook with calendar entry and reminder 2 weeks before they are due - which is perfect.
The problem is when I update one of the calibration dates I will want to re-run the macro to create a new appointment - but this will duplicate all the appointments that already exist! very annoying since there are over 200 items.
Sub outlook_appointment() Dim olApp As Outlook.Application Dim olAppItem As Outlook.AppointmentItem
How to automate outlook 2010 calendar and email integration.
I would like to create a button that sends out calendar invites to a large number of recipients with different specific meeting details (date determined by spreadsheet and other details standard). I'd expect that this would populate a specific shared calendar (not my personal calendar) for managing these appointments. It would be good to avoid duplicate correspondence (e.g. via drop-down list or checkbox).
I've created buttons testing a few codes provided in forums, but have not been able to make these work correctly.
Attached is a simple excerpt of the spreadsheet I'm seeking to automate.
I'm trying to reference a public folder in Outlook and pull a date from a specific appointment. I can get this to work for my personal calendar but I cannot get the code right to reference the public calendar.
Sub GetApptsFromOutlook() Application.ScreenUpdating = False Call GetCalData("4/1/2013", "4/30/13") Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub
Now I'm very green when it comes to VBA but I've messed around with the last line of this code in all sorts of ways and I still fail to get the object reference correct. I'm not sure if this has something to do with doing it from excel, offline, online, etc etc...
I have found a code to pull outlook calendar information from outlook to excel. I am trying to determine how to pull from Shared Calendars. This code looks as if they calendar has a number (9), but I can't figure out what the other calendar's numbers would be. How to pull from Shared Calendars and how to pull the month for which the calendar is on. My shared calendars are under Calendars>Shared Calendars in outlook. So for example, I would need to pull John Doe's calendar information for January if the calendar was on January. My code is listed below.
Dim olApp As Object Dim olNS As Object Dim olFolder As Object Dim olApt As Object Dim NextRow As Long
I have created a spreadsheet that displays new dates in column D based on provided dates in Column B and recurrence intervals selected in column C. The dates in column D are when a training deadline occurs. I have been trying to get a macros written so that when a cell in column d is updated, an outlook appointment message is sent to the person doing the updating. The idea here is that anyone can use this without future coding (so their address would be placed in cell say A1)
So far all i have gotten is excel to send an email to me with the excel spreadsheet as an attachment, not really what I want. Again, I dont want somethign specific to my computer settings, I want to be able to send the spreadsheet out with simple instructions for the user to change their email in cell A1 and then every time a cell changes in column D, it automatically generate an appointment reminder for the new date.
I have designed a live calendar and am trying to highlight selected dates from a column in the calendar. I am able to select single cell in the column and highlight the date in the calendar, But am unable to select multiple dates in the column and highlight multiple dates in the calendar using conditional formatting.
Eg: calender dates are from B5:H9 and multiple dates are in column J10:J13
I'm trying to limit the information people can put into my format and therefore to ensure they put in a the correct date etc i'm wondering if it is possible to have a calendar pop up to click on the date for a particular cell?
I need to create a Date Column (format = Friday, Janurary 10, 2007) for the entire year of 2007 that will display only the Tuesday and Friday of every week for every month ( total 2007 date entries : 52 weeks x 2 = 104 Dates). The format of the date is something that I will setup using the Format Cell menu options.
Is this task possible in Excel without involving a VBA script, because I'm not a VBA programmer? I tried setting up a formula to accomplish this task but the problem I'm having is that I can't add numberical values to Date values.
What I am looking to do is have a calendar on a worksheet that populates with dates from multiple worksheets across the workbook. I've got approximately 15 worksheets to pull dates from. Within each worksheet I have a table with 5-10 check options (Form control check boxes). When an option is checked, several dates appear going across the rows on the table. The dates in each row have several date ranges. For example, if I check option 1, I will get 4 separate date ranges of varying amounts of time. I would like these date ranges to then populate on the calendar. All worksheets should populate the same calendar. As each worksheet may have similar options, I would like the listing on the calendar to state Worksheet Name - Option Name for it's entry onto the calendar.
I've looked at the design of the calendar provided by Pete_UK and it looks like something that would work for me.
I've included a condensed version of the spreadsheet I am working on as well as the calendar created by Pete_UK.
I have a spreadsheet that will always have the dates needed in cells H40 and H42. I would like the calendar to utilize the data validation in the cell to only allow someone to choose a date that is between the dates in H40 and H42.
I have a sheet pasted below, I am wondering if it is possible to take data and have it automatically laid out in a calendar format. Say all the dates in column G could be sorted into a calendar with reference text from column E....
I have created a calendar as part of main userform and I need to be able to select 2 dates and link them to 2 cells in the spreadsheet. According to your help on the calendar form at http://www.ozgrid.com/VBA/excel-calendar-dates.htm I managed to do the basic calendar but need to select in it 2 dates.
I want the user to select a date from a calendar and insert a new sheet if a new date has been selected otherwise display the calendar again; then get the user to select a 2nd date and use this is in a Vlookup formula:......
Show the user the calendar Record the value Format it and check it against existing sheetsIf it doesn't exist, insert a new sheet ( name = date)If it is already present ask the user to enter another date and present the calendar to them againShow the user for the calendar for the 2nd dateRecord the valueCheck it against existing sheet names (names = dates) - it needs to be a valid date = sheet nameIf it's valid, use it in the vlookup formulaIf it's invalid, warn the user and display the calendar againOnce 2 correct dates are entered, I have a routine that then runs fine ....
I'm getting very lost in when the routine 'SheetAlreadyExists' and 'InsertNewSheet' should run (ie before/after each other etc.)
I have a spreadsheet that keeps track of my travel. Column A has the date I arrived somewhere, and Column B has the date I departed, and Column C has the name of the city I went to.
I am wondering if there is a way to generate a calendar using my list that will mark those dates. For example, a calendar for the month of June 2008 that would show I was traveling from June 3 to June 14, either by marking those dates with a different color or labeling them with the city names, or even just putting an x in the box.
I have been asked to create a calendar which will display, on the applicable date of expiry, a contract name. Basically so someone can go and see what contracts are due to expire. And then if a new contract comes up it will automatically be added.
I have a list of Contract names in one column followed by the expiry date.
I have looked around and there are some things which could help but they are seriously complicated and I can't work out how to apply it to my situation.
The company I work for does not use the usual calendar dates and uses a modified calendar. As an example, the month of January is Dec 31 thru Jan 27, February is Jan 28 thru Feb 24 and so on. I need to group data using a pivot table and summarize data by month, but as I just described above, calendar months will not work. Is there a way to modify what Excel sees as monthly dates?
