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. 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.

And usually when you write your code, you’re just trying to get things to work. But after a while you notice your code is beginning to get very slow when it runs. I mentioned that the issue is that the screen is constantly updating, which is causing the code to run slowly. 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.

To display the Developer tab, click on File in the menu bar and select Options from the drop down menu.

When the window appears, click on the Customize Ribbon option on the left.

And why the 2nd macro (in other workbook) runs perfect with or without Screenupdating =true ? If you then call another macro (macro2) that turns it back on, you will see the screen refresh at that moment.

Now usually it works fine but the macro im working with does calculations on 30000 ish rows (takes around 90 seconds) and causes Excel to display "Not Responding" for a short time and i see some of the calculations happening. And is there anything i can add to application.screenupdating to make sure the window doesnt change at all while the macro is running? Use the built-in Help that comes with Excel/Access 2. A lot of VBA code can be acquired by using the Macro Recorder.

I am sure that the coding could be improved but you don't add any notes to explain in the code.

The screen flickers and the excel macro runs slowly. First, be sure that the Developer tab is visible in the toolbar in Excel.The Developer tab is the toolbar that has the buttons to open the VBA editor and create Form/Active X Controls like buttons, checkboxes, etc.I would appreciate if someone could give me guidance on how to circumvent the use of Select in this code It is so much easier if you attach an example workbook containing the code.I have attempted to edit your code but I cannot test it.
