Worksheet Change Macro Takes Too Much Time When Run With Update List Macro
Feb 1, 2009
I have a worksheet in which I have a worksheet_change macro. This worksheet_change macro makes sure that a few cells will keep their colors, even if the user copies and pastes a new value to that cell. This worksheet_change macro runs each time there is a change on the worksheet. Now my problem is that on the same sheet I have an update list macro which updates around 20.000 rows and two columns (which is alltogether around 40.000 values) and it takes a while to run. So.. it takes a loooooooooot of time (too much) when these two macros both run.
My question is that can I somehow disable the worksheet_change macro while the update list macro runs. I mean something like when I start the update list macro to disable worksheet_change macro and when the update list macro finishes, then reenable worksheet_change macro?
I have recorded 7 different macros and then combined them all into one macro to achieve one end result. I am not sure if you can just look at the codes to determine different ways to improve them or if you need the excel spreadsheet as well.
I've done quite a bit of searching in the forum and online and haven't found anything that's generic and can be used at anytime.
What I'm looking for is a way or for code that tells you how long it takes a macro to run from start to finish, something that can be used to time any macro. I've seen some threads in the forum where people indicate that it took x amount of seconds for their macro to run but not sure how to do it.
determine the coding for a worksheet_change macro for the attached spreadsheet? I've got a macro set up in the worksheet and would like it to run any time there is a change in any of the cells on the worksheet.
i need to make a macro that takes workbooks or files and runs them through another macro. i already have the 2nd macro done and it is working perfectly i just need to know how to make the one that finds the other files and runs them all through the macro i already made. My boss said that he will have about 150-200 files to run through this macro.
Sub ScheduleUpdate() WaitHours = 0 WaitMin = 15 WaitSec = 0 NextTime = Now + TimeSerial(WaitHours, WaitMin, WaitSec) Application.OnTime EarliestTime:=NextTime, Procedure:=LinkUpdates() Application.Run End Sub
Sub LinkUpdates() Sheets("PRICING SHEET").Select Sheets("PRICING SHEET").UpdateLink Name:="P:CommonPRICINGCOMPILATION.xls", Type:= xlExcelLinks End Sub The code does not work at all, just the skeleton to have an idea. I also need help recreating an entirely new macro which preferably works well! The idea is that everyday at 8:00AM this macro starts automatically updating the links every 15 mins (SHOULD NOT MATTER IF THE SHEET IS OPEN OR NOT). But here is the catch. This code should be the code for a checkbox. So when the box is checked, or TRUE, the macro should run normally updating every 15 mins. But when the box is unchecked, the macro should stop (no update occurring). I want this macro because this sheet is linked to several other sheets and it needs constant updating. However, if I need to make a change in the main sheet, no updates should be happening.
I have not used an event macro before and am trying to one update a cell when changing a cell. I am basically copying a number to another cell that is an input for a calculation and then returning the calculated value back. How do I reference r69 in the code to start the event macro?
I ran into a dead with this simple but overlycomplicated task in Excel. How can I write a macro to update one workbook from many workbooks? My case. I have workbook A with 2 sheet tabs, sheet1 contains 6 columns: one for date, one for 0-20%, 21-40% ... 81-100%. Each of the rows underneath the heading contains a single data value ( total) from each of the 5 sheet tabs from the workbook being created each week of the month. Sheet2 build the chart reflecting the data gathered on sheet1. I need a macro that will update workbook A sheet 1 or add the new data generated that particular week down the columns for each of the columns stated? How can I achieve this?
I need to be able to open a workbook named "Cost Price List" and press an update button which will open Another workbook called "Numerical Pricelist" that will then look up the part number of the item and change the corresponding description only, using the "Numerical Pricelist as the correct master document. There are approx 5000 part Numbers but i have cut a small sample section.
I have one source spreadsheet, where are columns NAME, DATE. I read these data by ADO to other spreadsheet, where I can change/delete data and then run macro for update data in source spreadsheet. The problem: In source spreadsheet is column "NAME" and column "DATE", with values e.g. "Joseph"; 1.1.1980. I read this data to other spreadsheet, then I delete in it value 1.1.1980. When I run macro Update, it messages error.
Sub UpdateItem ... .Fields.Item(1).value = activecell 'activecell value = "Joseph" If Not isempty(activecell.offset(0,1)) Then .Fields.Item(2).value = activecell.offset(0,1).value Else .Fields.Item(2).value = "" 'I tried Empty and 0 too but when I read data again then, it displays 0.1.1900, nothing works End If ... End Sub
It seems that in source spreadsheet has data in column "Date" format Date and when I try to update data in format String ("") in source spreadsheet by Update macro, it messages error. When I used
.Fields.Item(2).Value = Empty ' or .Fields.Item(2).Value = 0
after rereading data it displays 0.1.1900 What I want to get is that if the cell with date (in other spreadsheet) is empty, the cell in column Date in source spreadsheet after updating will be blank (contains no values).
Need VBA macro to read and sum data from multiple worksheets
The “summary” worksheet contains list of all employees. I need to update the total number of hours for each employee by scanning all worksheets in the workbook as follows:
Once I click on a "update" button, I need to scan all worksheets (I have one worksheet for each week) which contains the total number of hours for employees by week. I need to calculate and add the total number of working hours for each employee then move to the next worksheet and so on ..
Once all worksheets are all scanned, the final total of working hours get posted in front of the employee name in the assigned field.. I need to do this for all employees. I also need a macro to create a new worksheet.. I attached an example with little description inside .. Labor Detail Job to Date-2.xlsx
I am trying to create a Macro to pull from a list and then update the charts and print. I have a list that has over 100 clients. I believe I need to loop but I am not familiar with VBAs at all. Below is what I am trying to accomplish.
I have a worksheet designed to look like a form. That worksheet pulls data from an "Application Data" worksheet using INDEX and MATCH formulas. That part works great. The user enters an Application number on row 8 and it populates all of the other cells. In fact, in cell O7 (not pictured), I have it generating the row number the data came from (based on a MATCH function).
Here's my question--if they go in and change a value in one of the other cells, they should be able to press an "Update" button. That will then kick off a macro that goes to the "Application Data" sheet, finds the row that has the Application Number (from row 8) and updates the values based on what the user entered on this form.
How do I write the statement that selects the row based on the Application Number?
I am trying to create a macro that can take the average of the the first 24 cells within a sheet, place the answer onto a cell in the next sheet (e.g. sheet2 in cell A1), then go back to the previous sheet, take the average of the next 24 cells within the sheet and paste the average of this new set in A2. I want to create a loop that will do this 365 times.
I have only managed to create the following code, however its only obtainning the average for the first set of 24 cells starting from B6 in sheet 1. I dont know how to use offsets that well....
VB: Sub Oval1_Click() For i = 1 To 365 Sheets("H1 - Riser Turret pressure").Select Range("B4").Select ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=AVERAGE(Sheet1!RC:RC)" Range("B4").Offset(1, 0).Select Next i End Sub
I have a fairly simple macro that takes a few seconds on my XP-computer with Excel 2003 but takes several minutes on my Vista-computer with Excel 2007.
The XP-PC has 2GB memory, the Vista-PC only 1GB, but it's hard to believe it's only that. Is Excel 2007 so much slower than 2003?
The macro makes quite extensive use of the .rows(Rownr).Delete method. Is the fact that 2007 has 1 million rows against the 65536 of 2003 the culprit? It has to shift much more data up when deleting a row, no?
I have a sheet called Summary. On that sheet, Cell O6 has a drop down with two options, when you change these options, a number of other cells on the same sheet automatically change (just using formulas). Including a cell that I've given the named Range of 'testCell'. Based on the drop down, test cell will either = 8 or 9.
What I also want to change is the format of a range of cells whenever O6 is changed - but only when O6 is changed.
However, the following code does not work. It works fine if i remove the 'If Target.Address = "O6" Then ...' but doesn't work with it included.
Code: Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Address = "O6" Then If Range("testCell").Value = 8 Then Range("P10:AD27").Select Selection.NumberFormat = "_($* #,##0_);_($* (#,##0);_($* ""-""_);_(@_)" Range("O6").Select
i have a list of dates from A1 to A31 , say in january 2009. from the 1st to the 31st, Im trying to get a macro that when i run it it removes all these dates and replaces them with feburarys dates 1st to the 28th. run the macro again and it changes the dates to march etc etc.
I have a worksheet change macro that from the insertion of date (dd/mm/hhhh) in a cell, fills some other cells with the day number, the week number, the month,...
Everything works fine when i fill one date after the other. But when I try to fill many cells with the same day by dragging the black cross at the right corner of the cell the macro is not activated. how to activate a worksheet change macro by dragging the black cross as a mean to fill many consecutive cells in a column?
Say i have a Worksheet named "gateway" or sometimes it will be "gateway (2)" (3) and so on. Is there a macro that i can call that in some ways calls the active worksheet and renames it to just "gateway" everytime?
i created a sheet and called it "Original" (which somehow is a template), in another sheet i created a big Button named "Create account" ,then i created a macro which copies that "Original" sheet and by default it names it "Original 2 " now that i need a new account each time i click that button to create a new sheet and rename it by the client name i need, in order to keep the "Original" intact as a template. It happens sometimes by mistake that i rename the "Original" one ( The template one) which therefore returns an error when i click the button!
Is there anyway to add to that macro a code which rename that "Original 2" something else lets say "Account" to differentiate it from the Template one?
Or to Protect only the "Original" sheet from being renamed out of the whole sheets i have , in order not to rename it accidentally?
Is there a way to either change this so that it lets me to select the whole area or a way to make a macro to do what this does to one cell?
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) If Not Intersect(Target, Range("M13:IR458")) Is Nothing Then Select Case Target.Value Case "1" Target.Font.ColorIndex = 20 Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 10 Case "Good" Target.Font.ColorIndex = 2 Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 35 Case "Stable" Target.Font.ColorIndex = 2 Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 27......................
I have the below vba and would like to have the '''event calculated ''' on any event on the worksheet. Right now it only update if updating the val1 thru val6 cells. How can i get the worksheet to update on any event or change on the sheet?
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) On Error Resume Next fr = Range("a65536").End(xlUp).Row Set Rng = Range("a2" & ":n" & fr) If Intersect(Target, Rng) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
The intent of the code below is to run the marco HideCol when a change is made in cell C10. If I actually change the value in C10 it works. However, I have C10 linked to another worksheet (=anotherpage!A13). When the value changes, my macro is not executing.
Here is the code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim changed As Range Set changed = Range("C10") If Not Intersect(Target, changed) Is Nothing Then HideCol End If End Sub
In Col D of my spreadsheet, I have a list of security codes, in this list there is a security code "all", i need a macro that will add 1 to the code, so it reads "all1", now i need the macro to run as soon as new data is pasted to sheet "Lending", the ranges in Col D do change on a daily basis therefore cell reference for security codes is not fixed.
