App application screenupdating
prompting to confirm worksheet deletions), which you may or may not want to suppress. Description The improvement of screen Updating depends largely on how your macro is written.
(I guess technically it will make it run faster since there will be no dialogs, but you know what I mean). This will speed up operations while also providing the user with a better and more tolerable experience. It will be specially usefull with those horrible macros made by the recorder, full of unnecessary "select" and "activate". I had a long-running macro several years ago that took almost a minute to run.
I tried numerous different "tags" in an attempt to change the font formatting.
When screen updating is turned off, toolbars remain visible and Word still allows the procedure to display or retrieve information using status bar prompts, input boxes, dialog boxes, and message boxes. Most of the code (if not all of it, actually) is from this wonderful Ron de Bruin site. I pasted together a lot of code to get where I am and don't know how I managed to get it to work at all. Each time you change some thing in the sheet, Excel re-calculates all formulas. So if your code is not updating too many sheets/cells but your workbook has many formulas then turning off the screen update might not help you at all.
