Automation of Sending Birthday Messages


I usually like to send emails or texts to my family and close friends on their birthday instead of sending the messages on Facebook. However, as I grow older, there are more people entering into my life, so it is getting harder to remember and keep track of the birthdays. Also, due to school and work, sometimes I don’t check the calendar, so I have missed some of the birthdays. It frustrated me, because it is something I really value. So I created a database to keep track of family and friend’s birthdays. The information can be added, deleted, or edited when needed. I also designed a Macro to scan the database and find if it is someone’s birthday. If it is someone’s birthday, I can choose to send either a text or an email to that person. During this process, I can modify the default message to a more personal message if it is needed. If it is no one’s birthday, it would let me know.
