Screenupdating excel examples
One reason this helps is that if you’re updating (via VBA) several different ranges with new values, or copy / pasting from several ranges to create a consolidated table of data, you likely do not want to have Excel taking time and resources to recalculate formulas, display paste progress, or even redraw the grid, especially after every single operation (even more so if your code uses loops). The benefit here is that you probably don’t need Excel using up resources trying to draw the screen since it’s changing faster than the user can perceive.Just one recalculation and one redraw at the end of your code execution is enough to get the workbook current with all your changes. Enable Events display Page Break State = Active Sheet. Since it requires lots of resources to draw the screen so frequently, just turn off drawing the screen until the end of your code execution.If you think I missed an important concept for how to optimize Excel VBA performance, or if you’ve got a valuable comment or link to share, please feel free to post here so everyone can benefit. Turn Off Everything But the Essentials While Your Code is Running This optimization explicitly turns off Excel functionality you don’t need to happen (over and over and over) while your code runs.
Simply add the following code line to achieve this.I want to start off this post by thanking everyone who sent in their examples in response to my January request.
