How do I create a countdown timer to a date in a vb login script?  For example, I want a box to pop up at login to say "Only 21 days left until Big Day!"

Something like this?

    Dim BigDay
    Dim DaysRemaining
   
    BigDay = DateSerial(2006, 6, 30) 'Year, month, day of bigday
    DaysRemaining = DateDiff("d", Date, BigDay)
   
    MsgBox "Only " + Format(DaysRemaining) + " for the big day!", vbInformation

Worked great, thanks!  I did have to change the last line to:

MsgBox ("Only " &(DaysRemaining) & " for the big day!"), vbInformation

'cause I got a format error.

Thanks rettiseert!
