    Run Macro every 10 seconds

    Hi,

    I have written a macro which queries something from the internet. The response takes about 4 seconds. So, I would like to run that macro every 10 seconds. How can I do this?
    The macro name is "asdf" and the shortcut is ctrl+i.

    Please help me out.

    Thanks!

    Look up using the OnTime method.

    In the macro itself you would use the OnTime method at the end to set a timer to run itself again in 10 seconds. Right before that line of code, put some sort of "test" that allows the macro to know when it's time to abort and not run that last line of code to set the timer again.

    Also, create a macro to turn off the timer. Searching for OnTime should reveal all of these methods and millions of examples.
