At every fiftieth line, the macro selects the line and refreshes the screen.
Hi Experts, I have a spreadsheet where I have created a console page to run a variety of reports from.
Hey guys, I know that in primitive versions of vb (as found in excel) there was a line that you could insert to prevent screens from flickering to and fro when it is trying to process something.
Application.screenupdating = false I am currently using in Visual Studio 2008 but i was wondering if anyone knows the equivilent for this version.
This example turns off screen updating and then adds a new document.
You must set the Screen Updating property to True when the procedure finishes or when it stops after an error.
And after all don’t turn screen updating on/off many times in some loop. And one more note (which you probably don’t want to hear) if you want it quick use C .
It is typically 5 to 10 times quicker (don’t catch me here it depends on what you really do) than VBA.
I use application.statusbar to keep the users apprised of what is happening.Worksheet Function | Screen Updating | Display Alerts | Calculation The mother of all objects is Excel itself. The application object gives access to a lot of Excel related options. As a result, Excel VBA closes your Excel file, without asking you to save the changes you made. If your workbook contains many complex formulas, you can speed up your macro by setting calculation to manual. For example, place a command button on your worksheet and add the following code line: When you click the command button on the worksheet, Excel VBA sets calculation to manual. You can verify this by clicking on File, Options, Formulas. Now when you change the value of cell A1, the value of cell B1 is not recalculated.You can use the Worksheet Function property in Excel VBA to access Excel functions. For example, place a command button on your worksheet and add the following code line: When you click the command button on the worksheet, Excel VBA calculates the average of the values in cell A1 and cell A2 and places the result into cell A3. You can manually recalculate the workbook by pressing F9. In most situations, you will set calculation to automatic again at the end of your code.From my own test I find out that turning screen updating off and on takes about 15ms (tested in C# via Excel Interop).Keep that on mind if you will execute anything which would take less time.
