This needs to run as a schedualled task:

This code works while logged on:



Sub Original_Create_and_Send()

    On Error Resume Next
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
   
    'opens Word template
    Dim wrdApp As Word.Application
    Dim wrdDoc As Word.Document
    Set wrdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    wrdApp.Visible = False 'hides MS word
    Set wrdDoc = wrdApp.Documents.Open("C:\Reports\Template.doc")

    'copy to Word
    Sheets("Final Report").Select
    Range("A1:G45").CopyPicture ' creates report as a bitmap
    wrdApp.Selection.Paste
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
   
    'Save word
    Dim sFileName As String, sPath As String
    sPath = "C:\Reports\Archive\" 'change path here if you want
    'adds a timestamp to the file name
    sFileName = "VoIP Status " & Format(Now(), "mm_dd_yyyy hh mm AMPM")
    wrdDoc.SaveAs (sPath & sFileName)

But it does NOT work while logged off

If I change this:
    sFileName = "VoIP Status " & Format(Now(), "mm_dd_yyyy hh mm AMPM")
To this:
    sFileName = "VoIP Status "

It DOES work while logged off

So why is the
& Format(Now(), "mm_dd_yyyy hh mm AMPM")
Part not working while logged off??

Thank you!!

Replace this line....

sFileName = "VoIP Status " & Format(Now(), "mm_dd_yyyy hh mm AMPM")

With this...

sFileName = "VoIP Status " & Format(Now(), "mm_dd_yyyy hh mm AM/PM") &".xls"

One note - It's a Word File, so  it's : & ".Doc"

Anyways,

Why does it not require the  "& ".Doc"" if I am logged on ?!?!?

In any case it works like a charm now.  Thank you thank you thank you!!
