I want to move away from doing time studies the old way, with a stop watch and a clip board, and build something in either Excel or Access. From there, I want to put it on a pocket PC so I can take it to the field. I've tried in Excel to capture the current time by using the =now function run by a macro, however, when I run the function through a macro, it updates ALL the cells with the now time instead of just the cell identified by the macro. I want to create a template that can have additional fields added or taken away according to the number of activities you want to time monitor. Does anyone have any suggestions, or have anything already created?
