this was not accepted

=CountDown(Time(16,20,00))



It hade to be

=CountDown(Time(16;20;00))



Otherwise, this was a great code even though I don't understand anything about Visual Basic

wow! I just did a simple one... thats amazing!

my very basic timer is this.



today          last day          dd-hh-mm-ss

7/12/2013 9:13(now formula)   8/6/2013 3:30   16-18-16-33 (=today-last day-8(weekends till done))and that gave me working days.

format the dates so they show time and use a custom format on the count down timer. you have to click on the count down timer to update it but it works.
