Vba screen updating off not working

This course introduces the Visual Basic for Applications programming language, covers creating subroutines and functions to hold code, and provides a solid grounding in the Excel 2007 object model.Programming techniques are demonstrated through real-world examples.

This can happen with recorded macros that have the word Select used frequently.

If this does happen, you may need to repeat the line: Application.

Office 2010 require different file open to create different instances. Office 2013 forces each workbook into it's own instance.

However Windows 8 treats switching instances diferently.

I tried debug.print application.screenupdating and it showed true in the debugger.

To make sure that each change was not effected by the debugger. Screen Updating will always show True in the debug window.

By setting Screen Updating to False at the Start of the macro, you will not only stop the constant screen flickering associated with recorded macro, but also greatly speed up the execution of the macro.

The reason it speeds up code is because Excel no longer needs to repaint the screen whenever it encounters such commands as Select, Activate, Large Scroll, Small Scroll and many others. Screen Updating=False should be placed at the Start of your macro like shown below Note how we have set the Screen Updating back to True on completion.

I already tried using Workbooks versus Windows and there was no difference, however the instance idea is interesting.

How do I open 2 workbooks in separate instances versus the same instance. You can open another instance of Excel just how you would open the first instance.

When I tried the same code on excel 2013, but Windows 8 the application.screenupdating = false stopped working only on the Windows or workbooks activate functions.
