    ALERT BOX (1)

    Is it possible to make a Pop Up Message Box by using Office 2000 SBE or PRO.
    I require it to notify (Remind) other people on the LAN (20) that certain cut off times are only minutes away.
    Appreciate any assistance.

    Well, I know that in the Add/Remove Programs dialog in control panel there is a WinPopUp in Win98, but have never used it (I believe is is in the Communications detail).

    On the other hand, if using VBA, you can display a form at a predetermined time (such as 15 minutes until noon, or such).

    Why don't you simply use the messaging capabilities of the network to notify users? Your system administrator can send messages to all users or only to those within a domain. What's the purpose in trying to do it from Office?
