    Exclamation sending sms from excel?

    Hi all.
    Has anyone got a way to send an sms from Excel?
    I have a linked spreadsheet I am working on, that will have an auto refresh macro to update, and every two hours, I want it to send an sms to a specific number with a short text message, and the number from a cell.
    Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this???


    Thanks in advance!

    email is data. Where the text goes in in the middle of nowhere. Still no 3G, so text is far more practical

    Hello Johnny247,

    You can send a SMS through most email clients using VBA. If you post your workbook, I can provide you with a possible solution.
    Sincerely,
    Leith Ross

    Remember To Do the Following....

    1. Use code tags. Place [CODE] before the first line of code and [/CODE] after the last line of code.
    2. Thank those who have helped you by clicking the Star below the post.
    3. Please mark your post [SOLVED] if it has been answered satisfactorily.
