When the Macro File is Loaded


This is similar to the At Startup schedule with one difference. Any time that the macro file containing the scheduled macro is loaded, the macro runs. When Macro Express loads, the file opens and the macro plays back.



Macro Express Explorer > Macro > Add Macro - Or click on New Macro Icon




Every time this event occurs

Select this option to play back the macro every time the file loads. If another macro file is opened and then the original file containing the scheduled macro is reopened, the macro executes. Or if Macro Express is shut down during the day and later restarted, the macro runs.


Only the first time this occurs for the day

This option limits the playback to just once a day. The first time the file loads for the day, the macro will play back - but not afterwards, until the next day.






Select a date and time range for the macro to play back from the three options available in the drop down list. These range options are described below.


Run the macro within this date range

Select a range of dates during which the macro may run. The macro plays back during the hours of the day and for the duration of the days selected. Select the Start Date when the macro is to first start running. Then select the End Date when the macro ceases to run.


Run between these times each day

Select a start and an end time for the macro to run.


Run the macro between the dates and time 

Select a starting date and time. Then select an ending date and time. The macro is available to run anytime between the dates and times specified.


Run the macro indefinitely

Run the Macro Indefinitely does not stop the macro on a specific date. It continues to run at the appointed time until the schedule is canceled or the macro is disabled or deleted.


Start calculating the next run time at

Select the date and time to start calculating the next run of the macro.


Run the macro between these hours of the day

Optionally choose to have the macro only available to run during certain hours of the day. Insert the start and end times.


Run the macro on these days of the week

Select which days of the week to run the macro. For example, remove the check marks from Saturday and Sunday if the macro is not needed on weekends.
