When the procedure ends, Excel automatically resets the Display Alerts property to True.If you need to turn the alerts back on before the procedure ends, use this statement: If your macro frequently uses this range, you may want to create an object variable by using the Set command.
The example hides every other column on Sheet1, while keeping track of the time it takes to do so.
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 VBA works with data, execution speed depends on the number of bytes VBA has at its disposal.
In other words, the fewer bytes data uses, the faster VBA can access and manipulate the data. If speed is critical, use the Long data type instead.
Remember to set the Screen Updating property back to True when your macro ends.
This example demonstrates how turning off screen updating can make your code run faster.
The way out of this frozen state is simple: Go back to the VBE, and execute the following statement in the Immediate window: If you have a worksheet with many complex formulas, you may find that you can speed things considerably by setting the calculation mode to manual while your macro is executing.
When the macro finishes, set the calculation mode back to automatic.
If you use an object variable, you can declare the variable as a particular object type.
