Use Of Screenupdating On Subroutines

Sep 17, 2009

I have written a number of macros, and I typically use Application.Screenupdating = False at the start, and set it True at the end of each macro. However, I now have some big macros which call others as subroutines. This results in the screen updating for each pass thru a called macro, as the Application.Screenupdating = True statement is executed. Is there a means to repress this at the top level, or is there a better approach to take in writing code which will stop screen update for a macro, but not restart it each time the macro is called as a subroutine?

Passing Variables To Other Subroutines In Same Mod

Nov 3, 2009

I'm having issue with passing along a variable. I learned this morning how to pass these along. But for this instance something isn't working correctly.

The code is below:

I cut out all the subs in between so you can see the problem.I think it has something to do with "File search"

The problem is after sub New_Pro_Test runs then returns back to Sub RunFolder I get subscript out of range error. It is suppose to open the next workbook in that folder.

Passing Filestreams Into Subroutines

Oct 13, 2006

I have a main macro (m1) that is outputing text to a datafile. When m1 calls a subroutine(say m2), how do I pass the file stream into the m2 as parameters so that m2 can output to the same textfile?

Sub m1()
F1 = FreeFile
'Open "C:in.txt" For Input As intInFile
Open ".out.txt" For Output As F1
Print #F1, ActiveCell.Value
m2(what I Do put here?)
End Sub

Sub m2(what Do i put here?)
Print#F1, "stuff"
End Sub

Apply Subroutines - Looping Through Sheets

Sep 28, 2012

I'm trying to apply subroutines that I wrote to all sheets in a workbook before a save but it's only applying them to the active sheet.

Here's my code:

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim ws As Worksheet
For Each ws In Worksheets
Next ws

End Sub

Subroutines Based On Selections From Userform

Feb 20, 2014

I have a very vast code with several subroutines based on selections from a userform.

I believe I have identified a loop that might be slowing down the process in the below:

Dim n As LongFor n = 23 To 65
If ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("record").Cells(ComboBox2.ListIndex + 3, n).Value = "INT" Then
UserForm2.ListBox2.AddItem ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("record").Cells(2, n).Value
End If
If ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("record").Cells(ComboBox2.ListIndex + 3, n).Value = "EXT" Then

[Code] ......

Basically the code will go through each value (that can be only of those four instances) and put the title inside a different listbox.

This works, but it seems to be maybe too "step by step" and direct? Is there a way for it to skip after it found the corresponding value to the next N without checking for a match with the other items?

How Do I Use VBA Timer Subroutines To Start And Stop Random Number Generator

Oct 6, 2008

As you can see below, I've written code that writes random numbers into three columns of a spreadsheet (10 numbers in each column).

What I want to do is create code that will run the random number generator for a period of 1 minute and then stop. I know that I will need to write a timer subroutine to do this but I'm how unsure how to do this.

Call Subroutines With Names Based On Generic And Relative Part

Feb 25, 2014

My problem today, is actually being able to call the routines. I have tried to make a generic setup, so that each subroutine to be called is named "Macro_[number here]". So Macro_1, Macro_2 etc. By doing this I am hoping to be able to call all the subroutines using a For Each code.

At this point, my setup looks like this

I think it may be somthing to do with the loop?

The macro is run off a toggle button which then selects a range of cells for the source data for my chart.

Sub ChartDynamic()

Dim x As Integer
Dim r1, r2 As Long

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

'H30 is the Period number
x = Range("H30").Value

Selection.Find(What:=x, After:=ActiveCell, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=True).Activate........................

Update Userform With Screenupdating Off

Jul 19, 2006

I have a form that i am using that I would like to update at certain points in the code. I have the screenupdating set to false but it seems that this is keeping the userform from refreshing as well. Is there a way to refresh the userform without turning the screenupdating back on (because the user cannot see what is happening behind the scenes.

Application.ScreenUpdating = False Not Working

Jan 22, 2009

For some reason Application.ScreenUpdating = False has stopped working for me.

For testing purposes, I have freshly opened Excel (2003 SP3) and into the brand new workbook, added the following macro:

Sub Test()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
For i = 1 To 40
ActiveCell = i
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
Next i
End Sub

When I run this macro, I see the individual values being written on the screen.
Stepping through the code and using Watch, I can see that Screenupdating is set to False by the first line, but as soon as the Activecell is changed, Screenupdating is reset to True.

If I turn events off by adding Application.EnableEvents = false to the start of the macro, all works as expected, however I do not want to use this "workaround" as I use event driven macros.

Application.ScreenUpdating = False Not Working??

Jul 18, 2006

I've got a listbox which populates a second listbox from cells on a hidden worksheet which is done through macros. Every time I select a value in the listbox, the screen " flickers" to the hidden worksheet. I want to be able to do the whole process without that "flickering". I tried using Application.ScreenUpdating = False, but it still flickers. Have I overlooked something?

Sub GetStaffteamQuery()
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Dim sConnParams, sSQL As String
Dim dbFile, dbPath, dbName As String
dbFile = "CounsellorData.mdb"
dbName = "CounsellorData"
dbPath = Sheet3.Range("databaselocation").Value
selectedgroup = Sheet3.ListBox1.Value
If VBA.Right(dbPath, 1) <> "" Then
' if last char in dbPath has no slash.................

Application.screenupdating Holding Between Procedures?

Feb 6, 2007

If I'm starting in Sub #1 and I have turned screenupdating off, then later in the procedure I call a function that also has screenupdating off (and also back on at the end of the function), will I get a slight flicker here? I'm noticing a slight one, and I can only imagine that it's where the screenupdating is being triggered again. (removing the updating from the function isn't an option, because another procedure calls the same function & needs it turned off)

Screen Flickering With ScreenUpdating Set To FALSE

Jul 8, 2007

trying to copy both the values and the format of a certain range from one worksheet to another I am faced with two problems:

a) how can I copy something without having to previously add ".select"? (in the end I want to avoid any screen flickering)

b) how can I copy both the values and the format in one line (currently I have to use two lines)

Current problem:
Below you can find a code snippet which is repitetiously launched in order to copy data(+format) from many sheets to one sheet, there is other code as well (not shown here), which is launched in between (dealing with charts and pictures). In order to avoid some screen flickering I have already included the "screenupdating=false" line, and I would like to drop the usage of any ".select" in my code, as any ".select" seems to update the screen irrespectively of "application.screenupdating=false" or not.

However, as soon as I erase any ".select" command, I get a runtime-error 1004 at the SECOND run of this code snippet here. The only way to circumvent this seems to include ".select" prior to the line causing the error. Why at the second run? Well, I think, it is because after the second run, the focus might remain with a chart and not anylonger at any cell. Is there any way executing the below code without the screen-flickering?

Sub copySample(ByVal M As Integer)

Dim wksTarget As worksheet, wksNow As Worksheet
Const maxRowsConsidered=1000

Set wksTarget=Worksheets("target")
Set wksNow=Worksheets(M)

columnNow = ((m-1)*8)+1
Application.ScreenUpdating =False

ScreenUpdating Setting Back To True

Oct 24, 2007

The following code is part of a much larger module. In the code I've set application.

screenupdating to false; however, it resets itself within 2 lines of unrelated code.

The first message box returns "Screen Updating = False", the second returns "Screen Updating = True". I have a suspicion that this is related to the Cube Analysis Add-in

I recently installed (Excel Add-in for Analysis Services).

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
MsgBox ("Screen Updating = " & Application.ScreenUpdating)
Application.StatusBar = ("Setting up report... Finding you selection...")
'get the user selected text and the column in which it can be found
lookupVal = Sheets("Sales Leads").TreeView1.SelectedItem.Text
lookupCol = Mid(Sheets("Sales Leads").TreeView1.SelectedItem.Key, 3, 1) 'the nodekeys are always "NK" & <column> & <count of nodes> so the third value in the key is the column.
MsgBox ("Screen Updating = " & Application.ScreenUpdating)

Macro Code With ScreenUpdating Off Turns Back On

Aug 8, 2008

A little context:
Searching this forum for "sleep", "delay" or "animation" will bring up a host of threads referring to the kernel32 function, sleep. This is a great way of putting small delays into code without the potential "synchronisation" problems of application .ontime calls or the "ugliness" of multiple-thousands looping.

My question:
When I call sleep (with values in the hundreds of milliseconds) several times in a macro, it seems like the computer just "gives up" screen updating after a few (maybe 50) iterations. The macro still takes the time I'd expect, accounting for all the sleeps, but it stops showing the intermediate steps and just shows the end result after the macro ends.

Is this something to do with RAM? Is there something about calling this command too much or too frequently that kernel32 doesn't like? Is my computer a useless bag of nails and spit?

"ScreenUpdating = False" From A Userform

Apr 30, 2009

I have a command button on the first sheet of my workbook that opens a Userform. The following stages are simplified so as to not confuse the problem I am having. The user enters a word into a Text Box in the Userform, and when they click OK (Command Button), the second sheet of the same workbook activates, and the macro finds the word from a list in Column A. It then makes that cell the Activecell and then activates the first sheet again before closing.

The problem is that I would like all that to happen with Screen Updating turned off, so the user doesn't see the sheets change. For some reason, I can't get it to work. From my research, I have read that Screen Updating should not be turned off until after the Userform opens, or if you move the Userform around the page it will work as an eraser. So I presumed I had to add to the Search Button
Private Sub SearchButton_Click()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
'\The rest of the code follows here
so that when you click the Search Button the first thing it does is turn off Screen Updating. But for some reason this doesn't work.

I also tried adding the code into the sub that calls the Userform:

Sub OpenUserform()
UserForm1.Show vbModeless
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
End Sub
