Default Popping out Message Box!

Hello Again!

Can we pop out a message box as a reminder in excel when a certain condtion
is triggered? Say A1=14-Sep-09 and B1=today(). Since, B1 has exceeded A1 so a
message box as a reminder would pop out to alert.

Thanks in advance.

You could put something like this in C1:

=IF(B1A1,"ALERT","")

Not the same as a message box, but you get the idea - the alternative
is to have a macro to do that for you.

Hope this helps.

With Worksheets("sheet1")
If .Range("B1").Value .Range("A1").Value Then
Dim Res As Long
Res = MsgBox("Reminder date has expired")
Cancel = Res < 6

End If
End With

HI Atishoo!

The COde worked out. But the problem is the message box pops out again and
again whenever there is a mouse click or TAB key is pressed. Is there a way
that the message box pops out once and after we clik on ok it doesnot pop out?

I presume you must have put the sub in as a selection change event!
Id put it in to trigger on workbook open if that is an appropriate interval!

Alternatively I think I would be tempted not to bother with the message box
and use conditional format to turn the cell red when the date is superceeded.
