    i am new here i might stumble a bit, my apologies in advance. i am a Marine engineer by profession and now i have been helping out in the office since we don't have a Technical Manager, my computer software skills are also limited that is why i need help.

    i have 45 crew reporting to me with all sorts of certificates with different expiry dates. i have managed to compile an excel spreadsheet with their names including certificates but since i am in between operations and the office i need excel reminders to my emails and to one nominated person at least 60 days before expiry to avoid catastrophic shipping delays while people are revalidating their certificates.

    please find attached spreadsheet with names and relevant certificates (highlighted in green). your assistance will be forever appreciated. i will be glad if i can able to do it by myself so when changes are needed i can just execute them. thank you in advance.

    I would not be able to code this, but a coder would have needs/questions:

    1. A worksheet with Name and Email address. This is so that info does not need to be hard-written into the code.
    2. When do you want it emailed? When you open the file? Automatically, even if you don't open the file? With a button click by you?
    3. What version of Excel and Outlook are you using?
