Good evening Expert Exchange community, on the first box on (SHEET 1) Would like it to recognize the order that i check off, so that what ever i finish checking last on the daily to do.

On the next day, show it to be on the first line
what ever i finish on second to last, show it to be on the second line
and so on.

just keep appending the completed tasks completed in a hidden cell along with current date. When ever the date changes renumber column B and sort the table (table sort example)

Omar, I've run into a small problem. I was going to store the date and time that a task is completed in column "S", but once column "S" has that information in it, when can I know when it should be deleted (in other words reset because it's a new task). It can't be simply if a cell in merged column "C" is changed because you might be correcting a typo. Any ideas?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Have it show without deleting any task that has been checked on previous days, once it reset for the whole week clear out the whole graph of those task that has been checked on,

I think what you are saying is how will it actually use the information from one area and get new information input on the same area, if that is the case what do you think about the following option if possible.


If I have task "XYZ" in merged cell CDE1 and it get's completed so I put the day and time in cell S1, when do i change cell S1 to ""?

---Every day the information will be update with new information, so why not

A. let's say today (11/1/16) is the first time i am using this function, let's say that "S1" is the place where the date being recorded in order will be at.

B. when (11/2/16) comes in play the information is sent to another location let's say "T1" the information used on "T1" will be the information used for (11/2/16)

C. on (11/2/16) when the information has been successfully sent from "S1 to "T1".
   "S1" will automatically erase present information because it has confirmation that "T1" has the same information.

D. On (11/2/16) because "S1" is clear have it record new information on "S1" when task are done. When the date change to (11/3/16) ----- repeat "B" step and on with new date.

If I change CDE1 from XYZ to XYz, that obviously a change to the current task so the completion date in S1 (if present) should not change, but if I change "XYZ" to "Read the Iliad" we can assume it's a new task and S1 should be set to "". How do In tell the difference?

Maybe what we need is a userform to maintain the tasks. It would have Delete, New and Edit buttons which would tell us when col;ukn "S" should be changed.

I just wanted to give you an update. I've pretty much finished the userform and all it's actions but now i've run into a problem in that rows in a sheet that contain merged cells are difficult if not impossible to sort using Excel's sort function, so I'll need to do using straight VBA code, and with it being Halloween and all, I probably won't be done today.

You really got your "monies" worth with this one. Changes include:

o Change the order on the Daily To Do List sheet as tasks are completed.
o Added frmToDo
o Protected some cells in the Daily To Do List sheet sheet and the code. Password is Omar.
o Highligted current day's column
o Renamed Sheet1 to To Do Summary

BTW I should explain that when you click the new button on the Daily To Do List sheet and the new form shows up, you select the task that you want to change or delete , or a blank line when adding, from the list and enter the desired text in the textbox that's just below the list. Then you click one of the options and finally click "OK".
