Simple Macros/Scripts?

Hello group,

I'm new to CodePlex, really impressed with NodeXL, and have only a little coding experience, mainly with Excel VBA.

I'm working on a project looking at email traffic over time and noticed NodeXL's tool to import email. Really quite impressive. Since I'm trying to look at email traffic changes over time, however, I wish I had a way of importing data in several short time segments. The filters are nice but I'd have to re-run the import tool over 100 times to get the data in the time chunks I'm trying to do.

Is there a way for those of us who have just some basic VBA experience to write something like a macro that would interact with NodeXL. I would use it, for example, to define my time intervals and have it cycle through the import process for each interval.

Thanks.

Unfortunately, Excel macros and VBA can't be used to interact with NodeXL's custom interface.  I'm trying to think of an alternative way to do what you want to do, but so far I'm drawing a blank.
