Excel screenupdating 0
You will find a log of examples via Google about this.There is an good example in Tricktresor or com Forum by Stephan Schnell.For those who face this problem quite often, you can use this piece of code (adapted from this answer), save it in your PERSONAL workbook and assign it to a button in the ribbon: Sub Comas2Dots() Application. Replace s TEMPDOT, s COMMA, xl Part End With End If End If Application.Screen Updating = False If (Msg Box("Do you want to replace comas by dots? Screen Updating = True End Sub The cells you are trying to add are not seen as numbers.if it was off at the start of the code, store that and do not turn it back on at the end.I fully agree and will begin to take heed, however, What is screen updating set to in Excel initially?Screen Updating = False 'swap between sheets 1/2 (need both sheets or this will crash) For i = 1 To numb Switches Sheets(1 (i Mod 2)). Screen Updating = True 'get results for part two results = results & vb Cr Lf & "Screen Updating IS disabled: " & Format(Time - start Time, "hh:mm:ss") & " seconds" 'show results Msg Box results End Sub Firstly I've been using the script written by Richie (UK) Post #7 Here It simply iterates through a loop changing the value of i in one cell.I have changed it slightly so it loops 10,000 times and I execute it 10 times for sample size.
Unfortunately, there is no simple two-click way to fix it - changing the format of the cells is not going to change the content accordingly, you would need to re-enter each value. You can do it quickly with Find/Replace, as suggested by David.
The moment additional macros are triggered from my original macro, the Screen Updating seems to always switch to True no matter if I have declared False at the start of EVERY macro. I just needed to comment out the setting back to true.
Everything works as expected when using one single macro. I hava a Worksheet Calculate event that I have also set updaing to false then True at the end.
The grater the amount of screen changes the bigger the impact will be. Other application settings that can make a difference to execution time are Calculation and Event handling. Enable Events = False ' Code here Clean Up: On Error Resume Next Application. Calculation = xl Calculation Automatic Application. Enable Events = True Exit Sub EH: ' Do error handling Resume Clean Up End Sub Sub test Screen Updating() Dim i As Integer Dim numb Switches As Integer Dim results As String 'swap between sheets this number of times numb Switches = 1000 'keep track of time Dim start Time As Double start Time = Time 'swap between sheets 1/2 (need both sheets or this will crash) For i = 1 To numb Switches Sheets(1 (i Mod 2)).
Use this code template as a starting point (the error handler ensures that these properties are turned back on at the end of the sub, even if it errors) Sub Your Sub() On Error Go To EH Application. Select Next i 'get results results = "Screen Updating not disabled: " & Format(Time - start Time, "hh:mm:ss") & " seconds" start Time = Time 'scenario 2 - screenupdating disabled Application.
