Vba application screenupdating false does not work
but in the informal testing I've done, I've found that Visible = False makes Word work roughly 15% faster than Screen Updating = False does on identical tasks.
That's about 1 second for every 7-not a trivial amount if your job runs longer than that. Chief among them is that repagination routines don't work when Word is invisible.
Article contributed by Daryl Lucas Many people know they can speed execution of Word Automation by turning off screen updating: Word. Screen Updating = False Many do not know, however, that they can get an even greater speed boost by hiding the application altogether.
The following code converts data from an ASCII file into spreadsheet format. In order to speed up the conversion process (it currently takes between 20 to 30 minutes per file) I've tried to prevent screen updating - the screen however flickers constantly and the code somehow does not prevent this. Value = Mid(strline, 69, 11) ''Time Start End If Cells(totalrows, 5).
Value = Trim(Mid(strline, 12, 10)) 'Object Name Cells(totalrows, 10).
