Excel macro application screenupdating false dating dinner parties
Hi Dave, I had the opposite problem where the same macro running on the PC worked perfectly but running on the Mac did NOT cause the screen to update unless I clicked on it, so I ended up doing a dodgy little "scroll screen/scroll back" at the end of my macro to ensure it worked on both platforms. If not, perhaps you could post the relevant portion of the macro on here ?Whenever you have a task to automate, you can usually go down the VBA route. Maybe later you add some features here-and-there, making your VBA code more powerful. Color = vb White End If i = i 1 Next cell ' offset i to alternate column coloring i = i 1 Next repeat Msg Box "Total time was: " & (Timer - start Time) End Sub Before moving on, let’s get a better understanding of why this is taking so long. The code runs much faster when there’s less real estate to update on your screen. Screen Updating = True End Sub Now the code runs at 1.4 seconds for me, which is a huge improvement. Color = vb White End If i = i 1 Next cell ' offset i to alternate column coloring i = i 1 Next repeat Msg Box "Total time was: " & (Timer - start Time) Application.Screen Updating Application Property in VBA is used to turn ON/OFF screen updating.The trouble is, the screen flickers as the new workbooks are opening.Has anyone experienced this before and can offer a solution?Explanation: In the above example, it will display numbers from 1 to 100 in the first column on Sheet1.We can notice the screen updating while updating Sheet1.
We can observe that there is no screen updating till running the macro.
Screenupdating = True Copy-paste friendly code:' Turn off screenupdating: Application.
Screenupdating = False' Turn on screenupdating:' (happens automaticly after a module is finished): Application.
Screen Updating = False...macro code here Application.
Screen Updating = True End Sub In Excel 2000 and prior, it was not required to turn Screen Updating back to true.
By turning off the screen updating your macros will run much faster.
