I don't know. Though in today's world and with Macro Scheduler's capabilities you'd probably be better off putting your efforts into learning Python rather than the antiquated VBScript.

I usually search for code snippets that are close to what I want then alter them to try to accomplish my goal. A lot of trial and error with no guarantee for success.

As a function reference, I like W3Schools.
