The first time the example hides the columns, screen updating is turned on; the second time, screen updating is turned off. Hidden = True End If Next c stop Time = Time elapsed Time(i) = (stop Time - start Time) * 24 * 60 * 60 Next i Application.
When you run this example, you can compare the respective running times, which are displayed in the message box. Screen Updating = True For i = 1 To 2 If i = 2 Then Application.
Screen Updating = False start Time = Time Worksheets("Sheet1").
Many people write their own macros to manipulate the information in a workbook.
The bad news is that it doesn't make any difference to speed in my testing in PPT 2013. A VBA add-in to quickly insert any of the sample code found on our site directly into the Visual Basic Editor, save your own frequently used code, and more!Turn screen updating off to speed up your macro code.I’m currently on a project to improve the performance of a particular workbook.Part of this task involves speeding up a few of the macros in the workbook.By setting Screen Updating to False at the Start of the macro, you will not only stop the constant screen flickering associated with recorded macro, but also greatly speed up the execution of the macro.The reason it speeds up code is because Excel no longer needs to repaint the screen whenever it encounters such commands as Select, Activate, Large Scroll, Small Scroll and many others. Screen Updating=False should be placed at the Start of your macro like shown below Note how we have set the Screen Updating back to True on completion.Raise Number:=vb Object Error ERR_VERSION_NOT_SUPPORTED, _ Description:="Newer version." Exit Property End Select If hwnd = 0 Then Err.Raise Number:=vb Object Error ERR_NO_WINDOW_HANDLE, _ Description:="Unable to get the Power Point Window handle" Exit Property End If If Lock Window Update(hwnd) = 0 Then Err.You won't be able to see what the macro is doing, but it will run faster.Remember to set the Screen Updating property back to True when your macro ends.
