1) I am doing multiple sumproducts on 6 sheets within a workbook with last row now being in the 12,000 cell range. Since putting in this SumProduct, my excel is extremley slow and affecting other windows applications. Is there anything I can use to replace this sum product ?
It seems to be starting the calculations even before I put any values in column D ? I have already tried the manual calculation, but it is not making much of a difference.
2) After doing the sumproduct, I then need another row to look at the value of the sumproduct cell and report it in another sheet. My problem is that the cell contains the date and time in 1 cell, but in order to get the cell to lookup the value properly I need to delete the 00 in the seconds to refresh the cell or else it gives me back an n/a# value, even though the seconds are 00 and not 01 or 02 etc ?
I have the following macro in a worksheet...and it is running very slow. There are other macros in the worksheet and they all run very well. Any ideas by looking at this code why it would be so slow in running?
Need some alternative code that would speed the execution of this macro. My weak attempt runs noticeably SLOW.
Dim cell As Range For Each cell In Range("TPD") If IsNumeric(cell) And Not IsEmpty(cell) Then If cell.Value > 0 Then cell.EntireColumn.Hidden = False Else cell.EntireColumn.Hidden = True End If End If On Error Goto 0 Next End Sub
I programmed a simple macro (attached to a button) that scan the lines in the sheet and uses the function: Cells(y,2).EntireRow.Hide=TRUE (in order to hide certain lines). Usually, It runs fast without problem. But when I print out an area of the sheet, it cause the macro to slow down substantially. (when it runs again). In order to fix that , I had to close the file and reopen it again ( and not print out)
i am currently using the following code to copy records from one sheet to new sheets that that are created and named in the first part of the if(). this works fine, however when i am dealing with 50,000 records it still takes 5-10min to get them all sorted. I think this although functional is horribly inefficiant, and am wondering how i might be able to speed up the process. possibly rather than check each record, then copy then paste individually to sort them, then read and select the list of cells until value changes, then copy over at once. i dont know if this would be faster or not, let me know what you think.

I'm running some macros that take a bit of time (1000-2000ms), and would like to give the user some feedback as to what's happening.... Ideally, I'd like to show a msgbox-like pop-up window saying something "processing..." while the macro executes.
I have tried using userforms (based on this post Excel VBA Macro- How to Create a Splash Screen for your Excel Workbook); however they halt background execution...
Is there any built-in functionality similar to .statusbar, but more obvious/visual that would allow this? I'm about to experiment with showing/hiding a textbox shape, but this seems a bit sloppy...
This is designed to be run on bid proposals, to calculate special discounts. My idea was that whoever was designing the bid would open this file, which has the discount information and the macro, and then run the macro on the file containing the bid.
This macro works. It worked really fast when it was in my personal.xls and referenced an .xlsx file for the vlookup. It was slower, but still tolerable, when I moved it to the .xlsm file and it still refenced the .xlsx file (an oversight on my part). Now that I fixed the vlookup reference to the .xlsm file, the same one that the macro itself is in, it has slowed to a crawl. What is going 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
We have created a macro that basically looks for rows that contain an "H" and hides the row if it does.
Users can add new rows throughtout the year to this spreadsheet. and based on certain criteria, an H or U will be placed in a hidden column which the macro looks at and hides any row it finds an H.
The user has to click on the button that has the macro assigned to it once they have finished working on the spreadsheet.
The problem we're finding is that for users who insert/delete rows, once they click the button it takes up to 15 seconds to run through macro (which is ok). However, users who haven't added or deleted any rows and who click the button, they have to wait upto 5 minutes (which isn't ok) for the macro ro run.
We can't figure out why the macro takes longer to run when no changes have been made?
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 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 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 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.
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?
