Vb excel screenupdating mydaughtersdatinga
I was watching the state of an object within the Workbook (the locked property of a specific style).
no matter what I did in code to turn off screen updating, it would not work and my app slowed to a crawl.
Note code snippets posted are just that and do not include error handling that is required in real world applications, but avoid On Error Resume Next it is something that I inherited and has about 2k lines in total adding info from 3 sources so I don't want to rewrite it (and yes there are many functions to reduce it to that number).
IS there a way of stopping it from doing this on a Mac to save me that pain?
Application.screenupdating = False was not stopping the screen update when it was call straight in an event. Screen Updating = False On Error Go To Open_Workbook1 Windows("Time M.xls"). Screen Updating = True I have had this same problem... I ran into this problem a few times myself recently.
In my case, when adding Application.screenupdating = False in my Workbook_Before Save code, it did not do it's job. yes a common occurrence is when you call another piece of code. In one particular instance I found an interesting fix: I had a Watch set.
Screen Updating behaves as a procedure-level application property. Sub load Portfolio() Dim i Test As Integer, portfolio Version As String Application. :-) Basically, after all those statements (and between each one) Screen Updating remains "True". Screen Updating = False For i = 1 To 10000 Worksheets("Sheet1"). Screenupdating = False worked perfectly in Excel 2007 until last week, when it remained True however many times I tried to set it to False. All those Screen Updating = False's you see is called "sheer desperation". I can still enter the workbook and it is screenupdating away even right after the line set it false. Screen Updating = False" in the immediate window it works as expected. Thanks Colin Correct, when you step through in debug mode the screenupdating remains turned on. To test it properly, try this: Put a commandbutton on your sheet and paste in Application. Net) | Coordinates, Vectors and 3D volumes I've experienced this problem, with code that previously worked!I re-insist as well on the fact the "NO there was no call to another sub procedure setting it to "True" because when debugging my procedure, I could clearly see the value of "Application.Screen Updating" not changing from True to False (thus being TRUE before and staying to TRUE right after the "Application.I was killing myself over why the heck screen updating was not set to false!!!! I solved my problem with a very simple solution: At the very very end of the code put: Application. Just try everything on this page and see if it works for you!Although I'm using VBA, not VB, I experienced the same symptoms when using Application.However, as soon as I removed the watch, it worked fine. I undig this post because I just ran into this issue myself on Excel 2007!Thanks to tjeffryes' remark, I checked if I had any watch set and I didn't... Screen Updating = false" because I saw the yellow highlight go over the line in debug mode. Calculation = xl Calculation Automatic Application. Screen Updating from within the code instead of the immediate window, but I'm fairly sure what I'll find. This function gets called by an event handler that catches a Commands Bar button event (? Basically, we create a menu bar and one of the buttons in our custom "File" menu is labeled "Load Portfolio" which calls this function. I have encountered the same symptoms and can't think as to why it's happening. I think that maybe something has broken in my excel because even when I closed out of excel and opened a brand new 2003 workbook with no previous code I was getting the same problem. The interesting thing is that *some* of my modules allow Screen Updating to be set to False, there's only a few that don't. However, I *can* change the Screen Updating from the immediate window. Screen Updating = False b Global Change Event = True Application. About to go home for the day, but I plan on trying to print Application. So while Screen Updating always is True in debug mode, this is not the issue for me.
