Date and Time

  Asked By: Diem    Date: Jan 02    Category: MS Office    Views: 950

Can I make the date and time update every second on frmTable.Caption?

Private Sub UserForm_Activate()

frmTable.Caption = "East Coast Seafood " & Now()

End Sub

Can I add one worksheet with the name is Date of the day?
Code below shown error because the worksheets.name not able to
accept "/.%,&,#" as name.How can I solve this?

Main puspose: I needed to save the worksheets everyday on the same
workbook.Thus, I want my worksheet's name is the Date of the day.

Sub BusinessEnd()
Dtime = Now()
Worksheets.Add Before:=Worksheets("Past Database")
Worksheets(Worksheets.Count - 1).Name = Dtime
Sheets("Past Database").Select

End Sub

You are going to have a LOT of worksheets and it's very likely that you
won't see the date anyway!
Try splitting the workbooks up into week numbers... 7 or 5 sheets per
workbook, with links to each in a main worksheet  or web page.

You wouldn't actually link a workbook. Set a hyperlink to a sheet in the
workbook.... Probably the first one.

First you'd build the 50 od sheets for each week... Could be 12 for each
month maybe... I'd try both and see which one I / my users prefered.
Then start up another workbook and Insert / Hyperlink ... and point to the
first sheet in the workbook.

So for example... I'd have my new workbook open and then open week ones
workbook. Then Insert / Hyperlink into my new sheet and point to say A1 of

OTOH... You could have a list of the workbooks in a range, select one and
click a button to open it.

ok shouldn't hurt time as much...

on question 2.. you would use the format function like this

worksheet.name = format(date(now), "mm-dd-yy") that would name the worksheet  as

worksheets(number).name = format(date(now), "mm-dd-yy") replace the (number)
with either the sheet number in the book or the current name of the sheet i.e.
worksheet(1) or worksheets("sheet2") etc for the first one.. if there is only
one sheet in the book then its 1 if there is more than one.. it would be a
little harder to figure out.. i'd stay with the "Sheet1" version
