    Date, Time or Both (Outlook 2000)

    I am starting over in hopes of making this a little clearer, My question. If someone would go into MS Word and be typing along, then want the current date inserted right where they are you could use the keys
    Shift+Alt+d and get the date "08/12/2001" like this. I just did it and then cut and pasted as an example:
    Shift+Alt+t and get the time "6:41 PM" this is ok but would rather have military time. No on to the question
    I would like a tool bar, perhaps with the pull down arrow ?? I could click on an Icon and get the date where is was or another icon and get the time, or a third one and get both. As you know in the notepad
    the is done with F5 this would also be great. Now the AllChars is just wonderful, I would be even better if
    I could asign it to say F5 and get the same results I get with /cb which is now the Current Date & Time
    Or if there were a way to get Outlook to respond as Word does to the Shift+Alt+d or the t. I have of course
    tried this and it does not work. Why would someone make a windows program with certain features on
    the quick keys and change it in another one .. ? Espically when Bill Gates is over the whole show. I really
    like the compatabililty of the quick keys for example Ctrl+G works in several programs and very similar.
    Well AllChars is helping my problem and who ever pointed me to it thanks a bunch. I would just like to
    go a little further, now that I have a calculator on my tool bar in both MS word and MS outlook ... What a
    blessing, help and thanks to all you very smart and helpful people out there at woody's ....

    in the outlook editor? no, not unless you create custom form or a vba macro.

    using word as the editor? yes, it works as it does in word.

    Other than what Mary said, you might investigate the 3rd party macro programs that are out there. ZDNet has some shareware and freeware.

    Re: Date, Time or Both (Outlook 2000)

    Do not think my question came out correct. I am always in the TASK
    section, updating information on tasks, I daily update some while
    others are less frequent. but have the ability to place the date at the
    begining of my update and the time in the text when I call someone on
    the information needed would be wonderful ... does this help you
    understand what I am trying to accomplish ... ?

    the VBA Macro is most likely the answer, but how, I am working in the TASK section and update them, so
    I do not need a new form the Allchars is working, but I was kinda wanting a tool bar selection, as I was given with the calculator.

    Yes to some degree only the example was in the contact section, what about the VB macro, someone
    started one, I tried but it always jumped to the top of the page and then put in the date :-(
    the example looked great only it did both without giving an option, but at least it was at the cursor

    Hi, did you try out this macro?

    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showthreaded.pl?Cat=&Board=out&Number=58411>Re: Outlook Date & Time (MS Office 2000) </A>

    Here's the equivalent one for 24 hour time:

    Sub TypeTime()
    Dim doClip As DataObject
    Set doClip = New DataObject 'instantiate DataObject
    doClip.SetText Format(Now, "hh:nn:ss"), 1 'set dataobject to current time
    doClip.PutInClipboard 'transfer contents to clipboard
    SendKeys "^v" 'paste date wherever the insertion point is
    Set doClip = Nothing 'clear object
    End Sub

    (delete the :ss if you don't want seconds)

    For convenience, I attach both macros in a module you can import into the VB editor. You then can customize the relevant toolbars with buttons for both macros. Post back if you have any problems with this.
