Default Greeting Function


I have the following function. I'm trying to say that if it is before
12:00 pm, say "Good Morning," if after 12:00 pm but before 6:00 pm say
"Good Afternoon," and otherwise say "Good Evening". The function
however, is not working properly. Any ideas?

=IF(NOW()<TODAY()+HOUR(0.5),"Good Morning"&" "&"Today is"&"
"&TEXT(TODAY(),"mmmm dd, yyyy"),IF(NOW()<TODAY()+HOUR(0.75),"Good
Afternoon"&" "&"Today is"&" "&TEXT(TODAY(),"mmmm dd, yyyy"),"Good
Evening"&" "&"Today is"&" "&TEXT(TODAY(),"mmmm dd, yyyy")))

Any ideas?

Thanks.

edward,

I typed in my cut off times in A1:A3 (12:00:00 AM, 12:00:00 PM, 6:00:00
PM respectively).

=IF(AND(TIMEVALUE(TEXT(NOW(),"hh:mm:ss"))=A1,TIME VALUE(TEXT(NOW(),"hh:mm:ss"))<A2),"Good
Morning",IF(AND(TIMEVALUE(TEXT(NOW(),"hh:mm:ss")) =A2,TIMEVALUE(TEXT(NOW(),"hh:mm:ss"))<A3),"Good
Afternoon","Good Evening"))

HTH

Steve

surely

=if(now()-int(now())<.5,"Good Morning",if(now()-int(now())<.75,"Good
Afternoon","Good Evening"))

is simpler?!

One thing to remember, unless I am mistaken the time from the NOW function
will only be updated in a cell when a recalculation is done. Will this
affect the formulas that a NOW is part of?

(As in if you just use a NOW formula it will list a time and date, that time
and date will remain as is unless you recalc to match with time passing on
your clock.)

Yes, that is correct. TODAY() and NOW() functions are volatile. They
will update when any formula in the entire workbook recalculates
regardless of cell references, or when the workbook is opened or saved.
However, they remain static until excel calculates.

A1 = =NOW()

="Good
"&IF(MOD(A1,1)<0.5,"Morning",IF(MOD(A1,1)<0.75,"Af ternoon","Evening"))
