Date/Time: Type out the current date/time using "d mmmm yyyy" as the format

I use "d mmmm yyyy" format for my macro, but it can be changed to whatever format suits you.

Had written a detailed account about not knowing how to apply your code, then discovered Date/Time in Variables command, set the format I wanted, and presto - it works. Thank you.

However, what if Macro Express is not yet launched ? Ideally, JUST pressing CTRL D should enter today's date - Will that require M.E. to be launched at (every) StartUp ?

That's right. Macro Express must be running.

 

You can set Macro Express to start automatically whenever your computer starts:

 

From the Macro Express Explorer:

 

Options

Preferences...

Startup

Windows Startup

Run when Windows starts up [check]

A system that I've used for a long time is that typing ; in front of a string is a trigger for an autotext entry.  For example

;brb = be right back

For dates I use 

;d

Also I have a number that indicates offset though...

;d0 = today

;d1 = tomorrow

;d3 = day after tomorrow.  

...

;d9 = nine days from now. 

 

At first I used 

;d-1 for yesterday

;d-2 for day before yesterday, and so on.  

 

Over the years it evolved into 

;dd1

;dd2

;dd3

Which is easier to type.  

 

Unfortunately these have to be created as separate macros.  

 

I'm in the process of changing computers, so I've uninstalled MEp, otherwise I'd post an example.  The code is not complicated though...
