This schedule runs a macro once a month at the selected time.



Macro Express Explorer > Macro > Add Macro - Or click on New Macro Icon




Run At

To set the monthly schedule first enter the time of day that the macro is to play back. Then select from one of the three monthly date options explained below.


On the [  ] Day of the Month

Select a day of the month to have the macro run, selecting from day 1 - 31.


Note: If the 31st day of the month is chosen, the macro will not run during the months that only have 28 or 30 days. Select the Last Day of the Month option instead.


On the First - Last 

Use this option to select the first, second, third, fourth, or last day of any day of the week. For example choose to have the macro run on the second Tuesday of each month, the third Friday of the month, etc.


On the Last Day of the Month

Use this option to schedule the macro to run the last day of the month.


Check Again in [  ] Months

The default value is one, which means that the macro is scheduled to run every month. Insert the number "2" to have the macro run every two months, "3" for every three months, etc.


If the activation was missed, run at the next available time

If the computer was shut down or Macro Express was closed at the scheduled macro run, this option runs the macro later when the computer is started or Macro Express is reopened.


Don't Run the Macro Again if the Time is Within [  ] Days and [  ] Hours and [  ] Minutes of the Next Scheduled Runtime

If the scheduled activation was missed, it may not be desirable to run the macro twice within a relatively short period of time. If this is the case, then insert a value such as 10 in the days field. If the computer is restarted on the second Monday after being on vacation and the macro is scheduled to run on the third Tuesday, the skipped macro will not run because the time is within 10 days of the next scheduled macro set for Tuesday.






Select a date and time range for the macro to play back from the three options available in the drop down list. These range options are described below.


Run the Macro Within this Date Range

Select a range of dates during which the macro may run. The macro plays back during the hours of the day and for the duration of the days selected. Select the Start Date when the macro is to first start running. Then select the End Date when the macro ceases to run.


Run Between These Times Each Day

Select a start and an end time for the macro to run.


Run the Macro Between the Dates and Time

Start Calculating the Next Run Time At

Run the Macro Between These Hours of the Day
