You can prevent Excel from recalculating the workbook by using the statement: An individual item of a collection object may be accessed by either its name or by its index into the collection.For example, if you have three worksheets ("Sheet1", "Sheet2", and "Sheet3") in a workbook ("My Workbook"), you can reference "Sheet2" with either Whenever you can, declare values as constants, rather than variables.Is there a way to refresh the userform without turning the screenupdating back on (because the user cannot see what is happening behind the scenes.
Since their values never change, they are evaluated only once when your code is compiled, rather than each time they are used at run time.
This is closely tied with Specific Object Type Declaration.
", then separately opens up each of 46 raw data workbooks in a separate network folder, copies a named range, pastes the named range's values into the master sheet, closes the raw data sheet, and repeats for the rest of the workbooks.
(It also then does a bunch of conditional formatting and restores any formulas that users may mess up after the 46 sets of data are copied in.) It all seems to work really great.
The problem is that I would like all that to happen with Screen Updating turned off, so the user doesn't see the sheets change. From my research, I have read that Screen Updating should not be turned off until after the Userform opens, or if you move the Userform around the page it will work as an eraser.
So I presumed I had to add to the Search Button Private Sub Search Button_Click() Application. Activate '\The rest of the code follows here so that when you click the Search Button the first thing it does is turn off Screen Updating. I also tried adding the code into the sub that calls the Userform: Sub Open Userform() User Form1.
However, when I add application.screenupdating=false toward the beginning of the code, it makes it part way through the 46 files (I'm estimating by the number and frequency of hourglass flickers) and then I get a message that Excel has stopped working and is trying to recover my file. Paste Special Paste:=xl Paste Formats, Operation:=xl None, _ Skip Blanks:=False, _ Transpose:=False Application.
I have tried the code with and without the screenupdating statement about 20 times, so I'm pretty certain this is the issue. Paste Special Paste:=xl Paste Values, Operation:=xl None, _ Skip Blanks:=False, _ Transpose:=False Application.
Auto Fill Destination:=Range("bf2: Bs2"), Type:=xl Fill Default Range("bf2:bs2").
Select 'Repeat as "1 week ago, 2 weeks ago..." etc Range("DP2").
