Excel application screenupdating false not working
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.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.is not working whenever switching between worksheets or workbooks in Excel.This function alone worked fine in Excel 2010, but doesn't work in later versions from what I can tell.When I started reading more into improving the efficiency of your code I understood what it was for but how much of an effect does Turning off screen updating will only make a difference to execution time if the code interacts with Excel in a way that causes changes to the screen content.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)). By leaving the main window alone, and forcing other workbooks to become not visible, letting the code run, then bringing them back to visible, it stopped flickering.
Screenupdating isn't working and the user ends up seeing the flickering and jumping back and forth between the data sheet and the calendar view. Here's the Save checklist sub: Sub Save_Checklist() Dim Checklist_Date Dim Completed As Long Dim Left_to_Complete As Long Dim Database_Date As Range Dim Database_Row As Long Dim b Scr Update b Scr Update = Application. ", vb Yes No Cancel, "Reset the Calender") = vb Yes Then Checklist_Date = Worksheets("Daily Checklist"). Screen Updating If b Scr Update = True Then Application. Unprotect Password:="young C" If Msg Box("This button will save this month's checklist data into the database. Copy On Error Resume Next With Worksheets("Database"). Select On Error Go To 0 If Not Database_Date Is Nothing Then Application. Protect Password:="young C" Else Msg Box ("Please be sure all information is correct before saving it.") End If If Not Application. Screen Updating = b Scr Update End Sub Private Sub Workbook_Open() Worksheets("Main Menu").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.
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 .
