In VBA you could use Application.OnTime.

Is there any function for this to be done whitout using an timer control?

you better use the scheduler from Windows that will launch your app at 6.

Personnaly, I would not use a VB app itself to wait for its time. I prefer having a scheduler, schedule the job, and free resources after the job is complete. Also, when schedule, the PC doesn't need to be logged.

But I don't have problem splitting points.

As you could see, my first comment goes in the same way of thinking like yours. I like the split stuff since both of you deserve the points.
