hmm,@kaufmed, so if I used your suggestion, would I apply it as:
if x=y and y=w and if (Now.Hour >= 17 AndAlso Now.Hour <= 23) Then "send email"? Do I need to declare anything first?
@CodeCruiser not ignoring your suggestion, just gonna try the simpler option.

Logically speaking, yes. In specific code, though, you've got a syntax issue.

i.e.

If x = y AndAlso y = w AndAlso Now.Hour >= 17 AndAlso Now.Hour <= 23 Then
    "send email"
End If

Open in new window


You had an extra "If" in yours.
