User friendly differential equation solver

This is kind of hard to explain.

I am creating a numerical solver that gets input from students in the form of an equation. An example being x^2 + y^2. I'd like to take this input and somehow put it into VBA as is.

This equation is going to be in a for each loop, where the values of x and y are changing with each iteration.

VBA Macro to send Email to added recipients

Hi,

I have a macro file, where as per my selection (Customer Name Selection), I;m able to send email to the specified customer. Like - Once I select Xerox Co. from the filter and click on Send E-mail button, all the fields of Xerox Co gets copied to new workbook and I'm able to send email to the recipient mentioned in the VBA code.

Now what I want is - instead of having the email id mentioned in the vba codes. I'll like to have a column of email id of all the customer in column B for each customer name (abc@xerox.com, xyz@xerox.com).

Thanks for your help in advance

Need macro to remove item and reset back to zero

I need help creating a macro that will remove a stock item from one tab and reset to zero so the macro can be run multiple times. The crux I am facing is being able to use this as a counter but in a negative sense. On the 'PRODUCTION'tab, I need to have the capability of removing stock item "TANK SIDE" from 'DS TANK' tab when a serial number is entered on the 'PRODUCTION' tab. The 'DS TANK' and 'PS TANK' tabs our inventory tabs and need the ability to add and subtract parts as they are produced and taken for assembly. I have attached a file for your perusal.
