Default Excel Date Alert?

Hi
do anybody know whether excel have any date alert?

For example, i input a date, 17th Novemeber 2008 and wish to have a alert 1 month before 17th Novemeber 2008, which mean at 16th/17th October 2008, excel is able to pin out a note to tell me next month is 17th November 2008.


This will be useful for my work as i need to keep track of expiry for my data collected.

Thanks if someone can help me

May be you can make use of Outlook appointment , and write a little code to activate below code:

Code:
 
' Set reference to the Outlook library
Sub CreateOutlookAppointment()
    Dim objOL As Outlook.Application
    Dim objAppt As Outlook.AppointmentItem

    Set objOL = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set objAppt = objOL.CreateItem(olAppointmentItem)
    With objAppt
        .Subject = "Sectional Meeting Appointment"
        .Location = "Cat's Home"
        .ReminderSet = True
        .Start = "3/2/2006  10:00:00"    'd/m/yyyy
        .End = "3/2/2006 15:00"
        '.AllDayEvent = True
        .ReminderSet = True
        .ReminderMinutesBeforeStart = 30  'Mins
        .Save
