  1. Greetings EDUARDO,

    Thanks for reaching out again. We are not facing the same issue from our side. But we are providing you with a possible solution to get rid of the issue. There could be problems with versions or with settings. We are using Microsoft 365.

    1. First, check that the Automatic option is enabled.

    2. Check that the Advanced tab options are the same as yours.

    3. Now, if you still face the issue, you can change the Copy Cells command to Fill Series in the AutoFill options.

    Please give us feedback if you have any further queries.

    Best Regards,
    Bhubon Costa, ExcelDemy

  2. Greetings EDUARDO,
    Yes, you have followed the procedures perfectly. But the thing is that you don’t need to press Ctrl to increase the number, as the numbers are already in an arithmetic progression. So, when you press Ctrl and drag down, you experience something like this:

    So, just drag down the AutoFill tool.

    Please give us feedback if you have any further queries.

    Best Regards,
    Bhubon Costa, ExcelDemy

  3. Greetings Andrija,
    There might be two reasons for your query. First, your default Outlook mail compose settings may not be in HTML format. Another one is that the table is pasted as Paste text and merge format (M).

    First solution:

    Go to the View tab in your Outlook app.

    Click on View Settings > Mail > Compose and reply.

    Select the HTML format for the Compose messages option.

    Second Solution:

    Your table might be compressed if you paste it as Paste text and merge format (M).

    Change it to Paste as is (P).

    We hope your issue will be resolved. Please let us know whether your issue is solved or not. The ExcelDemy team always welcomes your valuable feedback.

    Best regards,
    Bhubon Costa

  4. Greetings Frank,

    From your question, we can assume that your time format is formatted in [h] “hr”, mm “m”, ss “s” format. We need to change it into h:mm:ss format. You need to customize this format with the following steps.

    • Select the cells you need to change the time format.
    • Press Ctrl + 1 to open the Format Cells dialogue box.

    • Click on Custom.
    • Select h:mm:ss format.
    • Click OK.

    • Get your results in your desired time format.

    Best regards,
    Bhubon Costa, ExcelDemy

  5. Greetings UNSOLVABLE,
    We have just rechecked our code and it is working. You might have any compatibility issues for not working this code. You may download our sample Excel file and try to apply the code on that.

    Alternatively, you can share your Excel file on our forum https://exceldemy.com/forum/. We will solve your issues within no time.

    Best Regards,

  6. Dear Nouran,

    I am delighted to hear that your previous queries have been resolved. It seems like you have invested a lot of patience and effort, considering you had to work with 18 variables to accomplish your task!

    Regarding your further queries, you want to send reminder emails multiple times with different time intervals. For instance, you want to send the first mail three days prior to the deadline, the second mail five days prior to the deadline, and the final mail seven days before the deadline. To accomplish this, we have utilized the following dataset, and as of today, it is the 8th of May, 2023.

    Now, you have to modify the If section of the codes as in the image below.

    Here, is the full updated code.

  8. Yes, you can still run the program when your Excel App is closed. You do not need to run the program every day manually. By doing so, whenever you open your PC your program will be executed automatically. Follow the steps below to do so.
    Step 1:

    1. From the Start Menu type Run to open the Windows Run dialog box and paste the following path:

    %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    2. Click OK.

    Step 2: Place your Excel File in the Startup folder.

    Step 3:

    1. Open your Excel file Macro Window.

    2. In the Project Explorer, double-click the ThisWorkbook object to open the code window for the workbook.

    3. In the code window, select Workbook from the drop-down list at the top.

    4. Then, select the Workbook_Open event from the drop-down list on the right.

    Step 4:

    1. Type or paste the VBA code that you want to run when the file is opened between the Private Sub Workbook_Open() and End Sub lines.

    2. Save the Excel file.

    Private Sub Workbook_Open()
        "Your Full VBA Codes"
    End Sub

    Now, whenever you open your PC, the VBA code you wrote will be automatically executed. Hope this will resolve your issue. Please let us know your further feedback, our ExcelDemy Team is always relentless to welcome your issues.

  11. Yeah, YUKI, you are right. Your workbook need to be opened all the time to continue running this program. But, Problem arises when you turn off your pc the program will not run. So, you need to reopen the Excel file and run the program on daily basis.

    However, you can just open the Excel App. from your PC. Then it will run automatically. To do so, please insert your whole code in between Private Sub as below:

    Private Sub auto_open()
    "Your Codes"
    End Sub

    So, whenever you open the Excel App. the program will continue to run.

    On the other hand, if you want to run the program just after whenever you open PC. We need some time to make it for you. You may share your Excel file with us in [email protected]. Our dedicated ExcelDemy Team is trying to resolve your issue.

  12. Answer 1: To add one or more columns for the mail content section, you must add variables. Let’s say you want to add one more column so we will add VBA codes with one more variable xMailContent2. So, your data set may look like the following image, one column with the task name, and another with the task details.
    So, apply the following VBA codes to perform your requirements.

    Public Sub SendReminderMail()
    'Declare the variables
        Dim XDueDate As Range
        Dim XRcptsEmail As Range
        Dim xMailContent As Range
        Dim xMailContent2 As Range
        
        Dim xRngDn As Range
        Dim xCrtOut As Object
        Dim xValDateRng As String
        Dim xValSendRng As String
        Dim k As Long
        Dim xMailSections As Object
        Dim xFinalRw As Long
        Dim CrVbLf As String
        Dim xMsg As String
        Dim xSubEmail As String
        On Error Resume Next
        
        'To select the date column insert a input box
        Set XDueDate = Application.InputBox("Select the column for Deadline/Due Date date column:", "ExcelDemy", , , , , , 8)
        If XDueDate Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
        
        'Insert a input box for selecting the recipients
        Set XRcptsEmail = Application.InputBox("Choose the column for the email addresses of the recipients:", "ExcelDemy", , , , , , 8)
        If XRcptsEmail Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
        
        'To enter the task Name, insert a input box
        Set xMailContent = Application.InputBox("In your email, choose the column with the Task Name:", "ExcelDemy", , , , , , 8)
        If xMailContent Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
        
        'To enter the task details, insert a input box
        Set xMailContent2 = Application.InputBox("In your email, choose the column with the Task Details:", "ExcelDemy", , , , , , 8)
        If xMailContent2 Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
        
        'Count rows for the due dates
        xFinalRw = XDueDate.Rows.Count
        Set XDueDate = XDueDate(1)
        Set XRcptsEmail = XRcptsEmail(1)
        Set xMailContent = xMailContent(1)
        Set xMailContent2 = xMailContent2(1)
        'Set command to open MS Outlook Application
        Set xCrtOut = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
        
        'Apply For loop to conduct the operation in each row one by one
        For k = 1 To xFinalRw
            xValDateRng = ""
            xValDateRng = XDueDate.Offset(k - 1).Value
            'Apply If condition for the Due Date values
            If xValDateRng <> "" Then
            'Condition set to send mail if the difference between due dates and current date is greater than 1 and less than 7 days
            'Means 1 < X< 7, X = Due Date - Current Date
            If CDate(xValDateRng) - Date <= 7 And CDate(xValDateRng) - Date > 0 Then
                xValSendRng = XRcptsEmail.Offset(k - 1).Value
                'Create the subject, body and text contents with the required variables
                xSubEmail = xMailContent.Offset(k - 1).Value & " on " & xValDateRng
                CrVbLf = "<br><br>"
                xMsg = "<HTML><BODY>"
                xMsg = xMsg & "Dear " & xValSendRng & CrVbLf
                xMsg = xMsg & "Text : " & xMailContent.Offset(k - 1).Value & CrVbLf
                xMsg = xMsg & "Text : " & xMailContent2.Offset(k - 1).Value & CrVbLf
                xMsg = xMsg & "</BODY></HTML>"
                'Create the email
                Set xMailSections = xCrtOut.CreateItem(0)
                'Define the position to place the Subject, Body and Recipients Address
                With xMailSections
                    .Subject = xSubEmail
                    .To = xValSendRng
                    .HTMLBody = xMsg
                    .Display
                    
                    '.Send
                
                End With
                Set xMailSections = Nothing
            End If
        End If
        Next
        Set xCrtOut = Nothing
    End Sub

    Answer 2: You cannot run a file automatically from a Team Chanel server. However, you can automatically run the program whenever you open your PC. Follow the steps below to do so.
    Step 1:

    1. From the Start Menu type Run to open the Windows Run dialog box and paste the following path:

    %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    2. Click OK.

    Step 2: Place your Excel File in the Startup folder.

    Step 3:

    1. Open your Excel file Macro Window.

    2. In the Project Explorer, double-click the ThisWorkbook object to open the code window for the workbook.

    3. In the code window, select Workbook from the drop-down list at the top.

    4. Then, select the Workbook_Open event from the drop-down list on the right.

    Step 4:

    1. Type or paste the VBA code that you want to run when the file is opened between the Private Sub Workbook_Open() and End Sub lines.

  13. Greeting Yuki,
    Thank you for your queries,

    This program will have to run just one time and when it will reach the due date it will send reminder emails automatically.

    But you can also customize it to send it manually. Please go through the “Notes” section in Step 3 of the article.

    You can stop sending emails automatically just by disabling the .Send command from the full code. It will pops up for a confirmation before sending. Moreover, you can customize the recipients names. That’s the elegance of our objective!

    However, if this doesn’t solve your queries, you can mail us your Excel file with detailed instructions to: [email protected], and we’ll try to solve it as soon as possible.

    Regards,
    ExcelDemy Team

  14. Greetings 3ADDOULA MA5ASSAK, thank you for your question. I hope the following codes will solve your issue.

     Sub Chemical_Formula()
        Dim inputString As String
        Dim i As Integer
        Dim Char As String
        Dim Text As String
        Dim Number As String
        Dim result As String
        
        inputString = InputBox("Enter the chemical formula:")
        result = ""
        Text = ""
        Number = ""
        
        For i = 1 To Len(inputString)
            Char = Mid(inputString, i, 1)
            If IsNumeric(Char) Then
                Number = Number & Char
            Else
                If Number <> "" Then
                    result = result & Text & "=" & Number & ","
                    Number = ""
                End If
                If Char Like "[A-Za-z]" Then
                    Text = Char
                End If
            End If
        Next i
    
        If Number <> "" Then
            result = result & Text & "=" & Number
        End If
    
        MsgBox result
    End Sub

    2. Can you replace data in a non-blank cell?
    We have gone through every possible solution but couldn’t match the issue exactly. If you kindly share your excel file with us, we will send it back with the solution.
    Email: [email protected]
    Our dedicated ExcelDemy Team is always there to help.

  19. Greetings DANA,
    To update the result after each entry you make, you just need to edit a one-line VBA code. It will update the table range each time you make a new entry in column B.

    The VBA Code:

    Set TableRng = Range(Range("B5"), Range("B5").End(xlDown))

    Now, make new entries and run the program to update the result.
    Hope this will work for you. Please give us feedback if you have any further queries.

  20. Thanks a lot for your appreciation. You can also put your problems here, the ExcelDemy team is always in your assistance.

  21. Thank you MOE, for your generous appreciation!

  22. Greetings Justin,
    #VALUE error occurs when the function doesn’t find any recognized source value. It might have occurred if the degree values were not in degree formats. Follow the steps below to convert the value into degree format first and then apply the function Convert_to_Decimal with our VBA.

    Step 1:
    Add a degree (°) symbol after a number with a keyboard shortcut.

    Alt + 0176

    (Example: 32°).

    Step 2:
    Add a minute (‘) symbol after the minute’s value with the apostrophe (‘) key from the keyboard (Example: 16’).

    Step 3:
    Add a second (“) symbol after the second’s value by pressing

    SHIFT + Apostrophe (')

    (Example: 48″)

    Step 4:
    Your degree format will show like (32°16’48”).
    Finally, apply the Convert_to_Decimal function to the degree value.

    Hope this will work with your issue. You can also mail us the Excel file. We will provide the Excel file with the required solution. Please give us your further feedback.

  23. Greetings David,
    Thanks for your valuable suggestion.

  24. Greetings Nishant,
    To get emails one day prior the deadline date, try the following codes below.

    We just edited the code in the If condition by replacing 1 with 0.

    Previous code:

    If CDate(xValDateRng) - Date <= 7 And CDate(xValDateRng) - Date > 0 Then
                xValSendRng = XRcptsEmail.Offset(k - 1).Value

    Modified Code:

    If CDate(xValDateRng) - Date <= 7 And CDate(xValDateRng) - Date > 1 Then
                xValSendRng = XRcptsEmail.Offset(k - 1).Value

    Please, give us feedback, if any further query needed. The ExcelDemy team is always in your assistance.

  25. Greetings,
    According to your query, the ExcelDemy team has created an Excel file with the solution. Please provide your email address here, we will send it to you in no time.

    Otherwise, you can just follow the procedures as we have proceeded.

    Step 1:
    a. Our data set range is B4:F8.
    b. The names of the fruits range is C4:F4.
    c. Names of people range is B5:B8.

    Step 2:
    a. In cell C11, create a drop-down list with the range C4:F4.
    b. Give a named range for the numbers of each fruit with its name (Ex: Named range = Mango for C5:C8).
    c. Create another dropdown list dependant to the cell C11. Use the following formula in the Data Validation box from the Data tab to do this.

    =INDIRECT($C$11)

    Step 3:
    a. In cell C15, insert the following formula for Mango.

    =INDEX($B$5:$F$8,IF(IF($C$11=C4,MATCH(C4,$B$4:$F$4,0)," ")=(MATCH($C$11,$B$4:$F$4,0)),MATCH($D$11,C5:C8,0), " "),1)

    b. AutoFill the formula with dragging right for three cells for more three fruits.

    Step 4:
    a. Now, you are done, select any name (Grapes) from the first drop-down list.
    b. Then, select the number (6).
    c. It will result in the person name (Kent).

    Please, provide your further feedback if any queries needed.

  28. First of all, take cordial greetings from the ExcelDemy team. There could be some possible reasons due to the issue:
    The inverted commas are not properly inserted in your code as they should be in VBA script.
    The Sheet Names might not be inserted in VBA exactly as they are in the Excel file.
    However, we have created an Excel file precisely in accordance with your requirements. We can send the Excel file if you provide your email address.
    Otherwise, you can copy the codes below that we have used to make the Excel file with the right syntax. Please continue to provide us with feedback; ExcelDemy always welcomes your concerns.
