Application screen updating
This method is useful only when you are accessing an object several times during code execution.You can use Excel's standard worksheet functions in your VBA code, rather than writing the functions in VBA.
My tip of the day is from a bit of my own experience.When the macro finished, Excel would always revert back to turning the screen updating back to true.When I was writing macros for that platform, I would often leave off the Screen Updating = True because I knew Excel would handle it for me, and it solved the hassle of having to worry about it this macro was called by somewhere else that did not want the screen updating turned back on or not.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.Now that those macros are being used in Excel 2002 - we have a problem.
Excel's 2002 policy is that the macro has to turn screen updating back on.
By doing so, a great deal of overhead is done at compile time ("Early Binding") rather than at run time ("Late Binding").
For example, use , VBA can access the object directly, rather than resolving the complete path to the object each time.
If this sounds like you, then Public Sub Add Content To Sheet() Dim start Time As Double start Time = Timer Dim r As Excel. Range("A1: P30") Dim i As Long Dim repeat As Long Dim cell As Excel. Range For repeat = 1 To 30 For Each cell In r cell. Value Mod 2 = 0) Then ' if i is even, color the cell white cell.
Range For repeat = 1 To 30 For Each cell In r cell. Value Mod 2 = 0) Then ' if i is even, color the cell white cell.
So, the tip of the day, whether you are writing macros in Excel 97, Excel 2000, or Excel 2002, always turn the screen updating back to true with Application.
