I don't think you can run VBA code written for Excel on a HTML file.
You'll need to modify your code on the HTML to run javascript/php/asp etc.

HTH,

In Excel 2003, you can save a file as .htm and it will retain multiple worksheets and VBA code.

In Excel 2007 and later, you will lose the VBA code.

So which version of Excel are you using?

The following code is working in Excel 2003 with your workbook. It saves the workbook as "Uptime_Monitor_date_time.html" where date & time are determined programmatically. When I reopen the .html file, I can still run the workbook's macros.

I chose to modify the WriteStatus sub because that's the one that your command button was calling.
Public Sub WriteStatus()

    Dim R As Long
    Dim flPath As String, flName As String, sDate As String, sTime As String
    
    For R = 1 To Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
            GetStatus Cells(R, 3).Address
    Next R
    flPath = "X:\VBA\Sample '14\"
    sDate = Format(Date, "yyyy-mm-dd")
    sTime = Replace(Format(Now(), "hh:mm"), ":", "-")
    flName = "Uptime_Monitor_" & sDate & "_" & sTime & ".html"
    ThisWorkbook.SaveAs flPath & flName, FileFormat:=xlHtml
    ' submit macro to run again in 5 min
    'Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("00:05:00"), "WriteStatus"
End Sub

Open in new window

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

@byundt: you can actually run the code when opening the .htm with Internet Explorer?

I'm opening the workbook and running the code in Excel 2003.

If I open the file in IE, the button doesn't do anything.

OK, that's what I thought.
The way I understood the question, the OP wants to use a browser to open the html file created from Excel and run the embedded macros.
Hence my response: he can't.
