    Want to send out alerts by using Excel

    Hi Guys,

    I have an Excel spreadsheet at work which will be used to assign jobs to my colleagues. I want to have Excel send alerts to the my colleagues, one person at a time when it is that individuals turn to work on a task assigned in the spreadsheet.
    May I know if this can be done in Excel or not. If not, with what application can I use to trigger the alert messages.

    Thank you

    Well you would need some kind of criteria that would execute the transmission of the email.

    But in addition you could send them an email with a worrkbook attached easily with one line of code:

    Application.Workbooks("Book1").SendMail "", "Spam - Meow!", True
