Preferred Solution: Solved: Access Date Today or after today

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Solved: Access Date Today or after today

If this is the same field as the first post then you will be stuck with the default value of Now() or Date().
If it is a different field then in the validation property use >=Date().
Date() is used when you do not need to store the "Time" as well as the date, Now() stores the Date and the Time.

When items are loaned out we want them returned in 30 working days (approximately 6 weeks I'm not going to bother trying to calculate holidays) but to only come back on a week day Monday through Friday.

Field Name ReturnDate_Fld this needs to be calculated as 30 working days from the current date

or should I not worry about the extra effort and use the approximate by adding 42 to the BorrowDate_Fld (plus 42 days = 6 weeks)

Should I worry about this in a form or only set it as field in the report/query?

Hey guys,
I have a question about coding and setting an excel file to send emails. I am using an excel file to track maintenance work orders and I would like to get an email each day for each work order that is requested to be finished on that days date. I have attached the excel file I am using, and the column that is important is C, "Date Needed" - If that date is today's date, the cell turns red and I would also like to get email notification about it. A separate email for each cell that matches today's date.

Also, if possible, I would like for it to look at all the sheets, not just the current month's sheet. For example, if a work order was filed in July but wasn't needed until September, I would still like to get the email reminding me that it needs to be finished on xx date in September.

I have attached the excel file I want to use.

I have searched all over this forum and others and have found many posts similar to this, but I am not a great manipulator of code, so I cannot get any of the other solutions to work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Hi,

Is anyone else having a problem accessing some sites today. I am. Here are some of the sites I can't access...

http://wwwfriendsinbusiness.com/board1
http://www.imstarter.com
http://awsd.com/
http://www.910knew.com/pages/listenlive.html

What happens is (on the first 3) is that the browser tries and tries. I guess it eventually times out but I don't wait around that long.

With the last link, the background loads in but the rest doesn't. Again, it keeps trying but nothing.

I had trouble with http://www.paypal.com loading in, too. The top of the page was loading in but nothing else so I could not log in. Now it is working for me, though.

So is anyone else having this problem? Not sure if it is my ISP, my computer, of it is something with the Internet today.

It has only happened today and has been this way all day for me, with the exception of paypal.

And yes, I have tried both IE and FireFox.

I cannot even update my Spybot and my TrendMcro PC-Cillin becasue I cannot connect to their servers.

Whenever I boot my PC, the date is always a year from the current date. I go into the date and time settings and reset it, but the next time I start the machine a year has been added. The same thing occurs if the PC is on past midnight. At 11:59:59 the date will be 1-29-2001, but then it becomes 1-30-2002.

This is a 3-month old Gateway P933. Gateway says this is 'impossible' and that some software must be setting the date incorrectly. I've run 2 virus checkers (nothing found) and don't have any unusual programs running automatically. I KNOW that this IS possible because it's happening. What are some possible causes.

Thanks

There is a file shared by my group where we track work orders scheduled by date. Column 1 contains a list of dates, in order, like so
5/30/06
5/31/06
6/01/06
etc.
Sometimes, when you open the file, someone else has scrolled up or down the page, so if you want to view today's date, you have to scroll up or down to find it. What I would like to do is create a macro that takes you to the cell containing today's date. I tried creating a macro that did the following:
1- Go to a cell containing a formula =TODAY()
2- Copy the value of that cell (this will be today's date)
3- Open the Edit --> Find window
4- Paste in the value I just copied
5- Click find

This worked great on the day that I created it, but today, it still goes to yesterday's date. When I look at the macro, what it's doing is always searching for the value that "TODAY" had on the date I created the macro. It's not smart enough to actually paste in the value I copied, but instead sees it as FIND: WHAT="5/30/2006"

Is there a way to use the Find or CTRL-G, or any other formula to take me to the cell containing today's date? It seems like this should be a simple thing, but I just can't figure out a way to make it work.

Thanks for any help you can offer!
 

A:Excel: Go to cell containing today's date

If you have a cell on the worksheet with =Today() in it, that cell will always show the current date. You look up that in your macro and use that to find your current date in the data.

Good Day, I'm new here and I've got a strange sort of problem. Recently my computer decided that system restore would come up stating that it couldn't restore my computer to that day's date. It also states that this is the result of an improper shutdown which was done during the system restore. The only thing is I hadn't done a system restore during that time. I tried going back before the date by two days and although it said that the restore was done successfully it still comes up now it comes up with the same message and the day's date that the computer has been started up. Has anyone ever seen this and do you have any ideas on how to correct it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would think it was something that is corrupted in the system restore database or however is stores the information.

Is it possible to put today's date into the Formula field in the design view of a table?

There is a string that includes that field as its prefix. Right now it's just a static value. The rest of the string includes just an incrementing value.

For example... the field contains A and the count is 000000. Thus the result is A-000000. The result is stored into one of my tables. I would like to be able to use dates so that it would be easier read.

I would like it to say... 103103-000000 ... 103103-000001 (later today)... 110103-000002 (if tomorrow)...

I have an excel spreadsheet with lots of dates on it. One time, I saw someone create an arrow or bar that automatically went to today's date on the spreadsheet, so a person would not have to scroll down through past dates to get to today's date. I tried to " create a new rule" in conditional formatting so that today's date was highlighted yellow. The highlighting feature works, but when I open the spreadsheet I am not taken automatically to today's date. Is that some other feature? Can it be done on the excel in google drive?

Well, the problem has nothing to do with Windows 7, but I so got used to this Forum being the main resource of computer wisdom, so here it goes:

I have an old Sony laptop (PCG-VX89P is the model number). It worked very well for a long time (real 8 hours battery time) but eventually it was getting slower and slower, until at some point it simply refused to boot.

I thought the problem was with the hard drive, so I used the Spin-Rite to "repair" the drive, reinstalled Windows (yes, it's XP) and ... it still won't boot. it gets to the welcome screen, then I click on the user icon, it shows Desktop for a while, then the BSOD and it restarts so quick, I can't say what's written on the blue screen at all.

I thought the thing was done for. But, busy as I am, it was gathering dust for some time, until recently I decided to sell it for parts as an alternative to throwing it away. But having forgotten what the real problem was, I decided to boot it up and erase the hard drive again.

Of course the laptop's battery was drained completely, I had to plug it in and the BIOS screen appeared asking me to set the clock. I ignored it, since I did not care to use it, and miraculously everything worked - the machine booted up nicely, worked fine. OK, I thought, I'll change the time to normal, did it in Windows, and then rebooted - and it won't boot!

Next day I recall that this time change was the only thing I did, so I got into BIOS and changed the year to 1992 - the laptop boots... Read more

Someone told me that they were browsing on the computer today and a message from Google came up that said, an update to Adobe Flash Player is available, but they did not click on it or anything. I have cleared out my history, temp, and cache files in IE 8, rebooted and can not get to www.adobe.com to download the latest version of Adobe Flash Player, I have not updated Adobe Player in months and I do know that they are affiliated with Google.com. I went to Adobe's site, learning a long time ago NEVER to click on any pop up windows while browsing, and every time I go to www.adobe.com the page does not finish loading and the browser locks up, Is there something from an external server preventing the loading of the page?

PS. I do not recall an option to close the window, but I did click on Don't Install. (Did not give me any other prompts) The only others were Install or Ask Later. The Window was the same thing that pops up in your System Tray when an update is available.

There is also no problem with my existing Flash Player (Version 10.+) As of now, I am just going to assume a problem with the site.

Also, the site works fine in Firefox but not in IE 8. The problem seems to be some Flash Content that is loading on the page in Firefox with Adobe promoting a new version of software. The promotion ad is not coming up in IE 8, crashing the site. At least I know that I was doing nothing wrong!

This is a BIG issue all over the Net and it affects mostly IE 8 users and Adobe.com and instances of displaying Flash content. From what I have gathered:

****Note clean installs of Windows XP and new computers with Windows Vista or Windows 7 have this same problem.****** The conflict is between IE 8 and Flash Webpages being slow or not working at all in the case of www.adobe.com when visited with IE 8 and the applied software update below:

There was an update pushed to Adobe Flash Player around November 14th through the System Tray Manager indicator. Apparently Adobe uses something new in place of Active X controls for dealing with Flash Content and it was in this update. What is it now called?

Many users are having problems with some Flash web pages after this update and a conflict with Flash and Windows Update.

My Flash problems have only been a slow and sluggish response at Cnet.com and crashing at Adobe.com.

Some have reported workarounds with changing their screen resolution settings to make www.adobe.com work again, OR use Firefox to visit the sites that have this vulnerability, OR a rollback to IE 7, which is not affected by this Flash problem.

Updates on this topic? What is needed here?

1.) An update to Flash Player to patch this issue?

2.) A Windows Update to patch this issue?

3.) A redesign of Adobe's webpage to fix this vulnerability?

4.) With Cnet being slow with regards to 1-3, we may need an "All of The Above."

One last batch scripting question for today... i have a slight problem and i'm not sure of how to cure it...

I'm using the ( SET /P myvar= ) command inside on of my batch scripts..

and the command works exactly how i want it to, but there is a small loophole that i'm not sure how to fix, or if its even possible...

the command checks itself against a group of IF statements to direct the user around the script... as well as an error message if you input an incorrect selection....

like i said all the commands work correctly, but if you insert a SPACE instead of a character it will completely shut down the script, i previously assumed that it would go to the error message since it doesn't match any of the IF statements...

I'm unclear why it does this, and i'm looking for a way to prevent this...
 

A:Solved: Back again for the third time today...

just had an idea and it worked, here was my solution...
Code:

SET /P OPTION=- Command:
SET OPTION="%OPTION%"
IF '%OPTION%'== '"Answer1"' GOTO goto1
IF '%OPTION%'== '"Answer2"' GOTO goto2

what i did was use the, SET OPTION="%OPTION%" , command to put quotes around the users answer, the quotes will make a SPACE into a valid answer...

...and I'm wondering if anyone's had any success hooking it up to their own home networking gear? So far -- and I've been trying/googling for a couple hours now -- I haven't been able to do it.

I have a D-Link DI-514 wireless router, some generic yet perfectly functional wireless card, and Comcast shipped me an Arris Touchstone Telephony Modem (TM402P). My mom got the package that's phone service, internet service, and cable TV all on one bill or whatever.

I can connect perfectly when I have the modem straight to the PC, and it's working equally perfectly right now, connected through the router. But neither mine nor my brother's wireless cards can receive the signal from the router -- not just for the internet, for ANY network functions (files, printers, etc.). It's weird.

It's not the NIC: it still detects both of my neighbors' wireless networks (can't connect obviously, but they've always been there). It's not the wrong SSID or channel or WEP or anything like that -- it simply doesn't detect the signal the DI-514's sending.

I set the hardware up the same way I'd been using it with DSL for years, and no signal. I configured the router well enough to [obviously] connect to comcast on this PC. I tried spoofing my router's MAC address to match the MAC address of this PC's NIC. Didn't do anything.

Today I saved and opened a bmp file that really wasn't one, it was the W97M.Gogaru.A Trojan Horse. (I just tried to paste in the Symantec link, but it looks wrong and I don't want anyone to be afraid to click on anything here!)

Mine was from a Japanese clipart site. My own stupid fault, I know. I have changed the View to show all file extensions, now that the horse is out of the barn. I don't think it's gone, I'm still finding things that upset me (see below) and I badly need a shoulder!

Norton quarantined it right away but couldn't repair the infected file: Windows\~s.exe~. I got the Symantec info, deleted the bmp (actually an RTF macro-thing) that caused it, did a Find for files created about the time it happened. I found two things: an html file (W97M.gogaru.a[1].html) and an RTF file (search[2].rtf). Their "origins" were temporary internet files - their "origins" came from places with those eight numbers/letters like temporary internet files have. I deleted both of those. Norton hadn't done anything to them, though, so I don't know if they were just the shells of the trojan or what.

I did a NAV scan (updates are current), did a Cleaner scan (also current), a TDS-3 scan (current), and finally the Symantec online scan. Everything is okay, according to these many sources. I have two trojan scanners and end up with one anyway. I didn't have TCActive or TCMonitor activated, though (I do now).

Windows 8 is SO different from XP - especially since I've never owned or used anything like a fancy cell phone, ipad, or tablet!!!
"learning curve" is an understatement!!

But, Set up went smoothly (knock wood) and I am trying to figure out what all the top/bottom/side pop-ups are all about.
My computer does seem to running faster - I haven't done a speed test yet.
I LOVE the way my shop home page looks now. SO much better than the XP. Maybe Etsy doesn't work well with XP anymore? Don't know.

I saved everything on my desktop to the spare hard drive, but I didn't copy any of my Favorites - I'm sure I can do without 99% of them anyway.

So far, so good.

Hello,
This is my first post and it is to do with a problem (not a bright start). I have this Sony Vaio VGN-NR21M/S and have vista installed on it. Today I was downloading few programms (Adobe Nitro, Microsoft Onepoint, Daemon Tools). I also ended up some programm called "homeview" which sounds very wrong. And this homeview installed a folder containing nothing but the uninstaller. I removed it straight away, but i guess it was a bit late. My web broweser (IE) started acting funny. On google upon any search and when i clicked on it it took me right back to google itself and got a bit slow too. I didnt take much notice of it. I then installed Daemon tools and restarted my computer. Upon restart after log in straight away the BLUE SCREEN came up ofcourse disappearing in few secs. There was a general Memory dumping problem. whenever i restarted it occured and I could not use the laptop. It worked in safe mode and I tried to use network in "safe mode with networking" but could not get online. I went to a Laptop shop and someone looked at it and saw that when in safemode the Norton Antivirus is switched off(i.e. from boot/startup option) then in normal mode the laptop was fine. Now I got it working like this but my IE is really slow, I get passed on to this site smartbizsearch. I did a Ad Aware Scan and their seem to be some Malware.

Hello,

I booted my pc this afternoon and I opened up firefox to read my emails. I heard a clicking sound from speakers. Exactly the kind of sound I hear when connected to someone on skype - when they brush past their microphone or move it. I listened some more and heard a few piano notes (lol) and then fast typing upon a keyboard. Immediatley I thought that I was still connected to my friend on Skype from a previous night (as riduclous as that is) My microphone was still plugged in so i removed it but the sounds continued. I ctrl alt and delete, no skype running in proceses or applications.

I became seriously concerned and opened up cmd, typed in netstat -ano and to my disgust i had established connections from an unknown Ip/Ip's. I learnt how to do this a while ago and it is as far as my knowledge goes.

The PID of the established connections was 1864 x 4, 1863, 1620

I also wrote down the IP's

All conections seemed to be using port 80 if i am not mistaken.

Now when i checked the PID against services and processs one was Telephony among others (i think 1863) and that made me think Skype. The other was Avast!

After writing down all info on the netsat cmd, i closed firefox and the sound went away. At this point i was thinking maybe i had a pop up window open and an advert was playing or something (it has happened before lol), but this does not explain the connections.

Skype had been starting up on boot even though I had disabled it from doing so using msconf... Read more

Hi, I have a Dell Dimension 4700, built one year ago. Today is the day the warranty will expire, and if I renew later rather than now, it will cost more. I have had no problems with the PC as of yet, and my one support call went well. It used to be my understanding that it's not a good idea to buy the extended warranty on... most any product really. But from some threads I've been reading in various places, I'm thinking maybe with Dell I really ought to. I don't know if what I've read has been skewed by the fact that often it's the unsatisfied that take the time to proclaim that, but what I've read of others' experiences has been scary, and sounds like often one is lucky if they even get appropriate help *with* a warranty still in place.

Strangely (I think), with this model the only type of warranty available, original or extended, is next business day at-home service (with phone support too of course). I don't need that much convenience but I have no choice. So, a one-year extension would be $109, two-year $179. (Don't think I'd be interested in the three-year for $239 at this time, even though I do intend to still have this PC then and beyond.)

Ok so of course I'd rather not pay this but it won't take food off my table or anything. So should I go for it? Thanks so much if I can get some opinions before the end of the biz day (It's about 7 AM CST here now.)

I just FINALLY got DSL and have been spending time getting security in place and firewalls set up etc. Updated Norton, ran SPYBOT, defragged, etc etc and then if you can believe it got caught by stormer, thinking it was legitimate.

Just after I ran it I then installed spy sweeper, which found a lot of stuff, except this.

I got worried when apps began slowing down. I then decided to check up on stormer and found to my dismay that it is a horror show.

I then decided to try and back up some important stuff on a CD and couldn't get EZ CD Creator to run. I then tried WMP. It is getting an error internal app error, and I just updated it yesterday! Looks like anything that uses resources won't run.

I have been spending hours trying to find the solutions and get rid of it before I have to reboot for some reason and lose my internet connections and who knows what else.

Did the usual Remove Programs and of course nothing. Ran Clean Sweep, but saw nothing relating to stormer. I'd like to kill these people!

So I found this site and ran HJT
