    I am looking to set the application.Ontime to only run on a Friday (so that it changes the picture at the end of each week), is there an easy way of doing this?

    Hi Flammabubble,

    I hope you realize that the Workbook must be open at all times for your code to work.

    Try the following:

    You also need the following code in the ThisWorkbook module to cancel the schedule when the workbook closes and Excel is still open.

    Thank you very much for your response! I am aware that the workbook needs to be open with this, that's fine.

    The one issue I have with this is I was planning to have multiple pictures changing over a number of weeks (e.g. this friday picture 1, next friday picture 2, then picture 3 then back to picture 1. As far as I can see what you have given will change it for the next coming friday and then stop. Do you have any suggestions so that it repeats and then goes back to the first setting?

    Hi,

    Try this. I tested it the best that I could without having to wait several weeks for results. Each time the file is opened, the first picture is displayed.

    To customize for your picture names, add or delete names in the line in red below. The first name in the list is NEVER used, but MUST be there as a place holder.
