    Having trouble with "=Today()" formula in macro

    I have a macro that I run several times during the day. The very first time I run it in the morning I want it to clear the sheet. I figured this would be the solution but the clear fires every time, even when the date says yesterday.

    Edit: just seen Norie's post and he is, of course, correct in using VBA's "Date" rather than "Today". Or, you could use Int(Now) ... just trying to make up for lost ground
