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

Stop Screen From Jumping While Running Macro

Apr 25, 2007

I've created a macro that runs for about 3 seconds. While the macro runs, the active worksheet display jumps around because of the various cell references being addressed in the macro.

Is there a way to stop the jumping around? How can a simple "Progress" screen be displayed while the macro is running?

Charts Flickering

Sep 29, 2004

I have lots of charts in a sheet "plots" which is based on data in sheet "data Summary". Sheet "plots" have the following code, which is based on the event "actiavte". At the end my main macro, I am activating sheet "plots" and all the charts are working fine. After this if I go to any other sheet in the workbook and come back to "plots", all the charts are flickering and the cursor turns to busy mode. I don't understnad why this is happening.

Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
For Each ChtOb In ActiveSheet.ChartObjects
ChtOb.Chart.PlotVisibleOnly = False
ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("plots"). Range("e1").Activate
On Error GoTo Handle
With ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("s21max").Chart.Axes(xlCategory, xlSecondary)
.MinimumScale = Application.Average([s21high]) + -4 * Application.StDev([s21high])
.MaximumScale = Application.Average([s21high]) + 4 * Application.StDev([s21high]) + Application.StDev([s21high]) * 0.25
.CrossesAt = .MinimumScale..........................

Sheets Are Flickering Even No Macro Running

Oct 27, 2008

Some of my sheets are flickering even when there is no macro running. It blinks and flashes from time to time. It does not affect the funktion in the sheet except that its annoying as hell. Some times I have to scroll down and back up to "clear" the screen from the flicker/flash effects.

I can open an old file fresh and it flickers and flashes from start. It doesnt matter if I start it with or with out macro activated.

Stop Macro: Button To Hit Or Better Just Some Keys To Hit To Stop It Without Using The Ctrl+alt+del Which Closes Everything

Dec 13, 2006

my excel sheet runs through a lot of calculations, opens Flowmaster, a simulations program, passes on data, receivs data and so on. Is there any way to have a user input to stop the whole simulation. During the first tries I had a lot of break point in my debugger. But now I want to have a button to hit or better just some keys to hit to stop it without using the ctrl+alt+del which closes everything.

Screen Updating

Feb 13, 2009

Is there a way to disable updating to the screen but have a message displayed to the user while a macro is running? Something like a userform displayed on the screen or a message in the status bar. I vaguley remember you could "print" message to the status bar in LotusScript, wondering if there is something similar in Excel.

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
"the macro is running, hang tight"
...macro code in here...
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

Screen Refresh

Nov 18, 2009

I have a large workbook with about 20 worksheets that I have used for several years without problems. Recently, I have been getting strange behavior when the screen refreshes. The biggest problem is that I get images of other worksheets covering my current worksheet when I change a cell. I can make them go away by scrolling or flipping between another worksheet and back. I have tried using manual recalc and this has helped somewhat but I can still get the images sometimes. The workbook contains VBA that performs various tasks on every worksheet (unlock, update pivots...) but these have been in there forever. There is also one piece of code that performs advanced filtering. I can only think there was something changed with a security patch, but I wanted to know if anyone else has had this issue and might be able to provide some advice on how to prevent it.

Resize Userform To Fit Screen?

Jul 20, 2013

stretch" the userform to fit the height and width fo the screen. I dont want to simply change the height and width of the userform, i want the controls within the userform to stretch with the userform so that it looks the same, just fullscreen. this is what ive found by googling:

With Application
.WindowState = xlMaximized
Zoom = Int(.Width / Me.Width * 100)
Width = .Width
Height = .Height
End With

however, this just stretches it to match the width of my screen, but doestn consider the height, so that if i have a widescreen vs a square screen it will cut off the bottom of my userform. It would be great if there was a zoom type featur that zooms the vertical and horizontal dimensions seperately... more like a stretch than a zoom.

Keep Subheaders Visible At Top Of Screen?

Apr 30, 2013

Been trying to figure out if there's a way to keep sub-headers visible at the top of the screen.

Basically I want the main headers locked at the top (via freeze panes), but then I also want certain rows, which would be sub-headings, to stick to the top of the screen until the next sub-header row gets to the top of the screen, at which point that row would replace the other one at the top.

The best example I can provide of the behavior I'm looking for is on the iPhone Contacts list. When you scroll through the contacts you see the listings, but as you scroll into each new letter that particular letter's sub-heading stays stuck at the top of the screen until you scroll down to the next letter.

So example would be:
Quantity Item Price (this would be the header row locked to the top via freeze panes)
1 Apple $1
6 Orange $1
8 Pear $2
1 Cheese $5
7 Milk $2

So if you scrolled the above list down PRODUCE would stay at the top even while the Apple, Orange, and Pear lines scrolled off the screen, then it would get replaced with DAIRY when DAIRY reached the top of the screen.

Prevent Screen Changes During Procedure

Apr 26, 2014

I have 2 workbooks open. In the workbook that I am working in I run a macro from a userform to copy a worksheet from the other workbook that is idle in the back ground. I also display another user form that says "please wait" while the macro is running.

The problem I have is even though screen updating is set to false the screen switches over to the other workbook while it is copying the desired sheet and switches back to the workbook I am copying to after the macro completes. Also the "Please Wait" userform disappears while the other workbook is displayed and reappears when the initial workbook returns.

Below is my code which works without issue but perhaps there's a better way to copy between workbooks that would prevent the screen changes?

Screen Updating Dilemma

Sep 7, 2007

I have a personal.xls macro that basically does a comparison of two different workbooks. One of these workbooks ihas it's own macros (which are there in case the user wants to run them separately)...anyways my main macro calls these other macros one at a time.

It seems that at each call, the screen updates, alternating sheets and/or workbooks....

I know about the Application.Screenupdating=True / False statements....but I am not sure where I should be putting them to get the whole thing to work seamlessly.... I tried them at the start and end of my main macro, but that doesn't do the job.

Screen Zoom For A Workbook

Jan 24, 2013

I have just run into the situation where some users, magically and overnight , have widescreen monitors. This means the screen designs for 4:3 monitors show way too much on 16:9 monitors. I would like to put a control button on the opening page that gives them a choice of zoom, which usually seems to be 100% and 135%.

I'm thinking probably an IF sequence to parse their response and execute the appropriate zoom. But how can I make it effective for all the sheets in a workbook?

Full Screen Crosshair

May 29, 2005

This is a simple fine line crosshair which ALWAYS extends the full screen width and height. Excel users seem to be stuck with the little box cross. A full screen crosshair for Excel would allow one to instantly and easily see which row and column the cursor is on without clicking a cell or following from the cursor to the row/column with your finger on the screen. It may seem trivial, but once you have used a full screen crosshair, you just don't know what you've been missing.

What I Print Looks Different From What My Screen Shows

May 6, 2008

I have a WYSIWYG problem: what I see on the screen is NOT what I get out of the print job.

I commonly have the problem when working with Excel objects (any kind of shape, text box, line, graph) in that the layout looks great on the tab that I created, but when I go into PrintPreview or actually print it out, the shapes don't quite align with what I had built in the tab. Where I thought I had lines joining, the print out shows them crossing at other points. If I then go back to the tab and look at the layout on the regular screen, it looks fine.

This problem can be easily understood if you try to create a triangle by drawing three lines (non-overlapping lines that cross only at the vertices). Note that the lines either prematurely cross, or don't intersect at all when you print it out.

THis problem is even magnified when using the camera function to take a "snapshot" of a graph or other objects. In fact, it has the tendency to even "mess up" the graph's formatting, regarding the arrangement of titles and axes (often making them overlap).
