VBA Modules: Outlook/Access/Excel: modProcedures v2.14

Read this for full information on these modules

One major down side of the OL_BPMProcess and modAppsFirefox routines was that they locked up the Outlook session while they're running.  This module came about because I was fed up of losing Outlook for an entire Monday while it was busy waiting to download huge CSV files, particularly as the routines would invariably get stuck somewhere random and unexpected and I'd have to set them going again on Monday morning.  Storing the URL and other variables from the email triggers allows me to move on, and pick up those routines where they left off, much later on, when it's more convenient for me.

A few tweaks to the other modules have allowed me to force all downloads to complete during weekends and evenings (my routines usually run on Sundays), but to never wait for too long during business hours (in case something got stuck and I have to fix an issue on Monday).  Manually running the procedures doesn't invoke the same protections, so I can still consciously forego Outlook during the day if I want to run these saved procedures, or I can just wait until I leave the office at night or go on lunch.

Firefox (for me) will only download a maximum of 6 simultaneous streams so there are protections built into modFirefox for that too.  Rather than start downloading the file, store the Excel or Access procedure and pick those up later when the file has downloaded, it just stores the Download procedure for triggering later on.

When the procedure is running it updates the worksheet to "In Progress" then to "OK" when completed.  (You can choose to rerun Failed procedures, but it's not really recommended, owing to the way the routines are stored and will run -- if it fails once it'll usually fail again.  I usually delete all the procedures from the file once a week just for good housekeeping.)

This module should be added to an Excel workbook with sheets named Excel, Access, and Download with the appropriate column headings in place:

Excel:
mpTimestamp mpURL mpDownloadingFile mpMoveToFile mpPathFile mpMacro rResult rTimestamp
Access:
mpTimestamp mpURL mpDownloadingFile mpMoveToFile mpPathFile mpMacro rResult rTimestamp
Download:
mpTimestamp mpURL mpApp mpMoveToFile mpPathFile mpMacro rResult rTimestamp
