  • Hi,

    Is it possible to send SMS or other way of message from excel worksheet to a mobile ?

    I want this because, I enter data in excel workbook. After a certain date I want to go a reminder.

    If any other way for this, which can automatize this reminder ?

    regards

  • Hello,

    Your question is more related to VBA programming, but not Excel Development, I think VBA forum is best for you.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    There are several ways to achieve this. Either via XMLHTTP or via or there are also Add-in or 3rd party tools to achieve this. Below an example using XMLHTTP object to accomplish this:

    Btw. If SMS is not workable solution, you can also use the Email to send out a reminder. There are numerous examples to be find on how to accomplish this using VBA.

    Hope this helps,

  • Hi Danishani,

    Thank you,

    Actually people I deal with do not have email but almost all have mobile phone. I want an easy and free way to achieve it. My this work is not paying but a missionary type.
