Create Action Parameters
|1. Category (REQUIRED)||A Category titled “PowerPoint” is required for this macro to function properly. The color for this category has no impact on the behavior of this macro but will determine how the appointment display’s on your Outlook Calendar.|
|2. Subject (REQUIRED)||In the Appointment Subject Field enter “Open:” any text after “:” will have NO impact on the Open action but can serve as a place to enter text confirming what you intend on opening with this macro.|
|3. Location (REQUIRED)||Whatever is populated in the Location field will be considered the URL or full path to the Folder or File you are seeking to Open. To Open multiple URLs, Files, or Folders separate them using ; in this field.|
|4. Appointment Body (Not Applicable)||Whatever is populated in the Appointment Body will have NO impact on the Open action. (Not Applicable)|
|5. Reminder (REQUIRED)||The Reminder Field controls when the action will fire based on the Appointment Start Date & Time.|
|6. Recurrence (Recommended)||If the action you are creating needs to fire again at a future date & time then you can setup the Appointment to be reoccurring. (This Field is Recommended)|
|[Date] (Additional Parameter)||In the Location Field you can use [Date] followed by , and Date Formatting such as mm/dd/yyyy or “mmm” for Mar and “mmmm” for March to get name of current month. A full list of Date Formatting options can be found here! By Default Date Format will equal mm.dd.yyyy (Ex. Location = C:\….\Leverage & Lean\PowerPoint Presentation [Date,mm.dd.yyyy].pptx)
When using this parameter in the Location Field you must enter . instead of / because this is being used to save a file.
***Tip: It makes sense to use this parameter if you are setting up a reoccurring Appointment where the Date of the File or Folder is changing.

In regards to Word Create Outlook Email with Selected Text | VBA Macro #29
This is so perfect!
Thank you so much!
At my job, we recently switched over to Office 365. Previously we had an email template that we could fill out (using field codes [select all+F9]) but that is no longer available in Office 365, as only Word has the Field Code capability now.
I was trying to find some sort of solution using Word, and yours was the best thing I could find on the web!
YOU are the awesome one!
In regards to Excel Find and Replace across Multiple Word Documents | VBA Macro #30 and custom work.
The use case for CheckTheBible.com was to convert all the variations of Bible verse codes (B C:V - Book Chapter:Verse) in any text to a standardized code. For example, "John 17:21" should be "Joh 17:21." Once the variations are converted, then the next step is to convert them to a markdown language so they can be used in Obsidian.
I found Brent through his YouTube channel: Leverage & Lean (https://www.youtube.com/LeverageLean). Out of all the macro videos, the "Excel Find and Replace across Multiple Word Documents" video seemed like it could help automate a seemingly manual process.
I contacted Brent to see what could be done with my use case. From our first discussion, Brent has always been very understanding and patient with my situation and listened to my suggestions for improving the macro’s speed and efficiency.
Once he understood the end goal, Brent took my improvements to heart and ran with them. Now with this improved macro, I can take on any set of variables, modify a few words, and convert them to the final result. This custom macro searches Word Documents for Bible verse codes, uses a standardized list of 30+ thousand B C:V codes to convert to the markdown language automatically with 100% accuracy.
I have had a great experience working with Brent. Not only does he clarify expectations so it was set up for success, but most importantly, he has always come up with creative and comprehensive suggestions even outside the scope of macro building. Brent was really consulting me to do more than what I had thought possible.
