I currently have a workbook with 6 sheets, the main worksheet has roughly 10000 rows rows (with is the one Im having trouble with) up until a few days ago scrolling wasnt to bad but just recently it is really struggling to scroll (no changes to workbook)
I have a quad core Q6600 4GB ram plenty of HDD space the excel doc size is 2.8MB
is there anything I can do to improve scrolling on large spreadsheets?
I heard there is an efficient way of writing large amounts of data at once to a worksheet. My program is writing alot of data (e.g. 600+ items in each row) and takes over an hour to run because it writes to each cell one-at-a-time. I seached this forum and couldn't find the answer. Here is an excerpt from an old 1998 article by Dermot Balson and William Mercer that used code to write to cells in large chunks but it doesn't work for me - I get a method failed message.
'to read in Dim A As Variant 'MUST be variant, no brackets A = Range("SomeRange").Resize(10,20) 'reads 10x20 array starting at range SomeRange '(NB I've used Resize above but you can specify a range of cells any way you want)
'to write back to sheet Range("SomeRange").Resize(10,20) = A 'A can be any data type but MUST be two dimensional even if you are only writing one 'column or row - first dimension is used for rows, and the second for columns 'this can be slow - see third question below for workaround..
Here is the link to the article: http://www.avdf.com/apr98/art_ot003.html. A more detailed explanation how this trick works
I have a workbook made up of worksheets containing source data, pivot tables and charts but it is now becoming very slow since I have added a worksheet with many formulas.
If I move that worksheet containing many formulas (20 columns by 150 rows) to a different workbook will that help speed both of them up? The formulas will obviously still by referring to the original workbook.
Or is it simply by using formulas it slows things down whatever you do and I will have to think of a clever way of using pivot tables instead? Are there any other things that could be slowing it down? Other workbooks I maintain are fine.
I have searched the forums re my issue and have not found a relevant solution. I have a large workbook 19MB in Excel 2007. There are 400 sheets and each sheet contains various formulas and one macro. The only graphics on each sheet are color coding of some cells. The workbook takes 2minutes 55 secs to load. Once open there are no issues. Is there a reason why this is so slow or do I just have to accept that being a large file it will take this long. There is no issue with HD space or RAM as the laptop is only used specifically for this workbook. Running Intel Core 2 Duo, 160 HDD, 2mb ram.
I have attached a workbook that I want to be updated by the user. It contains a number of vlookups that to refer to a data source on a server communal to all users. I wondered if there would be anything that could be done in the workbook to help speed up an update?
I have a workbook with many lookups, sumproducts, dynamic named ranges and cse formulas. How do I determine what is causing my workbook to be slow? Are there more efficient formula types that I can use?
Over a period of time I entered dozens of worksheets into a very important workbook. Finally, I decided to put them in alphabetical order. I found a method/formula to perform the task on line. I made the suggested entry and it ran for some time. After it finished: the worksheets were in order. but since then Excel has been slow and many times unresponsive.
I am having a problem with a workbook, I have copied all cells and pasted Special (Values only). But for some reason the workbook is 38 Meg's. The workbook only contains 6 worksheets with about 60 rows and 32 columns with figures and no formulas. I have tried to find formulas by Goto/Special/Formulas and Excel has found nothing. What shoud I do?
I have a large model which basically imports data into a sheet, pastses extra columns with formulas into the data sheet, refreshes some pivot tables based on all the data in the data sheet and then refreshes a report with the data from both the data sheet and the pivots.
My problem is that the model is incredibly unstable. It will usually only let me run the process about 1 or 2 times before causing Excel to have a severe error, and crash. That xls will then become corrupted, and then not work again. However, if I restore a backup version, it will always run fine again, regardless of the data, 1 or 2 times.
In the past, it seems like the error may be tied to using either:
though I think this is a syptom, rather than the problem. VBA will actually just not perform these commands when the sheet is corrupted.
I am looking to create a summary page to show open items within a log of initiatives. The workbook has 21 different tabs logging initiatives by the each individual person and also 9 other data tabs. On the tabs containing the initiative logs, it states whether the initiative is open or closed and I only want the summary tab to show the open items. Is it possible to do this?
I'm having a little bit of trouble with my code. I basically need to copy-paste special a large workbook (50 worksheets) into a new range-valued workbook. I've defined Sheet as S, but in some instances when I use the variable "S" I received a runtime error 1004.
Please see the highlighted red "S" in the code below.
Also, if one knew of an easier method for this particular operation that would be great!
Dim W As Workbook Dim S1 As Worksheet Dim S As Sheets
I'm writing an application in Excel, its a little over 5MB after I've run through UsedRegion and trimmed stuff, 94 worksheets. I'm encountering a fair number of crashes these days. My OS is fully patched as is MS Office. Running Windows server 2003 and Excel 2007.
I was wondering about the pros and cons of writing an application in one large workbook or many smaller ones. So far its been one large one but these crashes are really impeding my progress.
What's the best way to remedy these crashes or even start to diagnose?
I have a sheet with 200 sheets in called workbook x , I need to create a summary new workbook with only data on 1 sheet.
I want to pull specific cells from the large workbook x to 1 single sheet on a summary workbook:
A6 I want to be surname taken from B1 of workbook x B6 will be first name taken from C1 of workbook x Then I will copy data from M1 on mastersheet to cell C6 on new workbook Then I want to copy Row A11 up to T11 and paste on the new workbook (Summary) in D6 staying in the row 6 Not sure if this is the tricky bit I want to repeat as above B11 to T11 but paste in the next empty cell of the same row of D in my summary I need to repeat this action upto A23 to T23
Then I need it to move on to the next sheet in X and repeat all the steps above but do it on the next row down row 7 and so on
my existing macro, as the run takes to much time to complete. (at least 20min) I've already tried several loops, but no one worked for me. Following situation: There are two excel files, entries in column 73 - 85 will be copied from WorkbookRust to the other workbook if the numer in column 5 is the same. Not every cell within this columns contains data, so the macro should automatically jump to the last entry in each of the above mentioned columns, instead of predefine the range as you see in the code below. After the data is copied to the other workbook, it will be filtered acc. to Sub FilterMain and then copied back to WorkbookRust. As already said, the whole thing works, just to lame.
Sub Allmacros() Dim WorkbookRust As String WorkbookRust = ActiveWorkbook.Name ChDir "C:Documents and Settings vogtMy DocumentsRüstplausch" Workbooks.Open Filename:= _ "C:Documents and Settings vogtMy DocumentsRüstplauschCH_Revenue_2008.xls" Sheets("Main_Overview").Select Windows(WorkbookRust).Activate Application.run ActiveWorkbook.Name & "!UpdateEntries" Application.run ActiveWorkbook.Name & "!FilterMain" 'not ask to overwrite existing file Application.DisplayAlerts = False Workbooks("CH_Revenue_2008.xls").Save Workbooks("CH_Revenue_2008.xls").Close End Sub
I got a work sheet with 672 columns of information that im trying to cross compare against. I wanna compare each column against every other column in that row. I have 200 rows of data. That means each i need excel to do 226,128 comparion calculations each row. So that means in the entire work sheet its gotta do 91 million comparisons. Im on a dual core 1.8ghz core 2 duo cpu and 2 gigs of ram on xp pro with excel 2007. I even bumped up my virtual memory by 3 times the size it was yet still its taking forever.
Its taking over 3 hours to do this whole page of calculations. So i opened up visual c++ and quickly programmed in the same code with some generic values and within 3 seconds it computed it all. My guess is that the bottle neck is when excel has retrieve data from the cells because other than that i cant figure out why its so slow. Heres a section of my
My spreadsheet is chugging through the following code. The data being filtered is rows A:AC, rows 10:193 (so not an absurdly large amount of data). It takes about 15 seconds to complete the filter. Ideas?
Private Sub EuropeButton_Click() HeaderRegion = "Europe" ActiveSheet.AutoFilterMode = False Range("A2:A8").Value = 0 Range("A2").Value = "TEG" Range("A3").Value = "TUK" Range("A4").Value = "TEF" Range("A10").CurrentRegion.AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterInPlace, CriteriaRange:= _ Range("A1:A4"), Unique:=False If Columns("E:F").Hidden = True Then Columns("E:F").Hidden = False End If End Sub
I'm working working with this spreadsheet that is moving incredibly slow. Every time I enter anything, it takes anywhere from 10 seconds, to a couple minutes to calculate and let me proceed. It is a pretty big file (4.60 MB), but I also work with another spreadsheet that is a little smaller (2.95 MB) that has never taken more than a fraction of a second to calculate anything. What could I do to spead up the spreadsheet?
This module consists of app. 25 sub routines. Every sub routine is a For-Next Loop, with 70 For-Nexts to work through. The loops check certain input cells and if these cells are empty, the row is hidden. I have the reverse also where I can unhide these rows.
When I had about 8 of these loops in this module, it would work quite fast and it took about a second to run one of these subs. Now that I have 25 if I run one of these subs it takes about 20-30 seconds.
Before I break them all down into individual modules just to find out it doesn't work, is there anything else I should be doing or could try to speed these subs up? If breaking them down into more than one module is the solution, how do I do this best?
I have a workbook with macros Ive created that have been running just fine for 2 years now. Ive upgraded to a top of the line new Dell D830 dual core laptop with 2gb ram and installed excel 2003 (same excel as always). Certain macros that used to take a second or two to run on a celeron dell now take 3min's! Ive stepped through the code in debug mode and found that its hanging up in simple areas like "Columns("A:A").Select" and "Selection.ClearContents". We have 16 older laptops running these exact codes just fine all day long and the 2 new fast computers with core 2 duo processors are hanging up constantly in the same places in code. Ive gone through and made sure all the "option" settings are identical in excel. Is there some system setting That I'm missing or possibly an excel setting That I may have overlooked?
I have a relatively complex application with a few thousand cell links and dozens of VBA macros (3.5 MB heavy). This application (one file for each project) is used by a few hundred users in about 200 projects. What I did recently (to allow updating macro program functionality in existing files) is to move all macros into an add-in.
What happens now is every time when I change the content of any cell anywhere in the file, it takes about 3 seconds(!) to leave the cell after changing it and to jump into the one below. Of course I'm getting complaints from users about this slow behaviour.
This also applies to cells in sheets that have no event macro program related to them. It applies as well to cells that are not referenced in any other cell. I tried changing the calculation method from automatic to manual - no change in speed. I de-activated the add-in - no change in speed. I have checked if there are any formulas that contain the today() or function or the like - there are none (actually, I had replaced them with links to a cell that contains today's date, which is automatically updated when the file is opened, but this was also this way in the previous version).
It seems that there is something going on that causes Excel to be busy with itself.
Does anyone know what might cause this strange behaviour? I tried everything I could think of without success and I'm lost now.
We are using Excel 2003 in an XP Professional SP2 environment and most of our computers have 512 MB RAM.
i had a file with 10,500 lines, 18,000 kb and it seemed slow to load (about a minute) every time i made changes and then saved it or reopened it.
so i broke the file up into 3 smaller files by cutting and pasting. i deleted all empty lines and columns beyond the file content. i defragged my compter. i cleared all excess format in job history - but -
one file now has 3,900 lines, 22,300 kb and takes 4 minutes to load.
one file now has 2,000 lines, 20,100 kb and takes 4 minutes to load.
one file now has 4,900 lines, 14,500 kb and takes 1 minute to load.
