Screen updating excel Older innerracial chat rooms


Excel & Word have the Screen Updating method thru which a developer can lock the main window from unnecessarily redrawing itself whilst the macro is being executed. If left alone, redrawing is not only ugly on the eyes it also takes more time for the macro to reach completion.

For example, if I want to change the line width from 2.25 to 1.5, every time I type or delete something, the chart updates.

Is there a way to disable screen updating while reformatting the Excel 2007 chart?

In Excel 2007-2016, Save As requires you to provide both the File Format parameter and the correct file extension.

For example, in Excel 2007-2016, this will fail if the Active Workbook is not an xlsm file' 52 = xl Open XMLWorkbook Macro Enabled = xlsm (with macro's in 2007-2016) These are the main file formats in Excel 2007-2016, Note: In Excel for the Mac the values are 151 = xl Open XMLWorkbook (without macro's in 2007-2016, xlsx)52 = xl Open XMLWorkbook Macro Enabled (with or without macro's in 2007-2016, xlsm) 50 = xl Excel12 (Excel Binary Workbook in 2007-2016 with or without macro's, xlsb)56 = xl Excel8 (97-2003 format in Excel 2007-2016, xls)Note: I always use the File Format numbers instead of the defined constants in my code so that it will compile OK when I copy the code into an Excel 97-2003 workbook (For example, Excel 97-2003 won't know what the xl Open XMLWorkbook Macro Enabled constant is).

Once you're happy with the look, assign the real data set.
