Vba application screenupdating false not working
The following does that for the first instance of the found text (matching the case). Caption = "Processing document " & i - 1 & " of " & doc To Open. Count End If 'Open each document Set Doc = Documents. Selected Items(i), _ Visible:=False, _ Addto Recent Files:=False) Set rng To Search = Doc. Screen Updating = True Msg Box "Processing complete" End If lbl_Exit: Set Doc = Nothing Set doc To Open = Nothing Set rng To Search = Nothing Exit Sub Err_Exit: Msg Box Err. It appears that you want to locate the text "Discharge Pack" and insert a paragraph break after it and write the text to the start of that new paragraph. Execute(Find Text:=str Text To Find, Match Case:=True) rng To Search. Close Save Changes:=wd Save Changes Do Events Next Unload o Frm Application. For long macros I would advocate displaying a Userform saying "Please Wait" and for very long macros showing a progress bar or percentage complete, and maybe even a "Cancel" button to exit before completion.Whenever you have a task to automate, you can usually go down the VBA route. Maybe later you add some features here-and-there, making your VBA code more powerful. Color = vb White End If i = i 1 Next cell ' offset i to alternate column coloring i = i 1 Next repeat Msg Box "Total time was: " & (Timer - start Time) End Sub Before moving on, let’s get a better understanding of why this is taking so long. The code runs much faster when there’s less real estate to update on your screen. Screen Updating = True End Sub Now the code runs at 1.4 seconds for me, which is a huge improvement. Color = vb White End If i = i 1 Next cell ' offset i to alternate column coloring i = i 1 Next repeat Msg Box "Total time was: " & (Timer - start Time) Application.Hi all, Before I start, I will admit I posted this in a forum that helps me a lot with another Office product, but as of this post they were not able to shed any light on this issue.
Show = -1 Then Set o Frm = New frm Progress If doc To Open. I also momentarily turn screen updating on and then off again to show each sheet as it processes.Much better than staring at an unchanging screen for 40 seconds (that would be like watching the microwave for 40 seconds -- it takes forever). You just have to set the range you have defined to the place where the text is to be inserted. Collapse 0 Exit Do 'If you only want to process the first instance Loop End With Doc. Thank you for the progress indicator code and the tip on how to do this better and, I am always keen to learn new things if it will help me in life. The following code has been adjusted to use that progress bar. It is neither necessary nor desirable to write a text string to the clipboard in order to write it to the document. As you will no doubt gathered I am a novice at VBA and this attempt was just trying to emulate what I would do manually.
