    beep me xl

    I'd like xl to beep every 15 minutes (so as to remind me to alt tab back to aol b4 they disconnect me).

    You might try setting your default browser settings to check for e-mail every one or two minutes to show that you are active.

    ok, forget the bit about aol.
    I simply want my PC to beep every 15 minutes. Is there an easy bit of code that will do this?

    You could place these 2 procedures in a module and to start the reminders call SetReminder<pre>Sub SetReminder()
    Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("00:15:00"), "SoundReminder"
    End Sub</pre>

    <pre>Sub SoundReminder()
    Beep
    SetReminder
    End Sub</pre>

    The first sets the OnTime event to call SoundReminder in 15 mins. When SoundReminder is called it beeps and calls SetReminder to reset.
