I receive a daily email which has an Excel attachment that (unfortunately) contains a date with =now().  So whenever you open it, it always shows the current date.  I have a macro to save the file to a directory when it comes into my inbox.

Since the excel file comes through with =now(), I need a formula or script in another excel file I use to validate that we received today's file.  I assume the best way of going about this is to have a formula or script in Excel display the current date modified and perhaps conditional formatting to highlight if the modified date is <> today.  

Alternatively I think I would need a script to open the daily file ("Funding Requirements.XLS") copy | paste special | values so that the =now() formula is no longer contained in the

Thank you.
