Certain vba macros / codes take a long time to run or execute the actions required. Sometimes, there could be one or more macros which cover multiple processes and this status bar will be useful to know at which process, the macro has reached.
If you have turned off screen updating using the line Application.
Even if we could stomach having unprotected templates, that’s not good enough. I’m going to increase my number of splits, but I’m not hopeful I’ll find the golden key.
I sprinkled some splits around the code to see if there was one area causing the problem. There must be something else in 2013 that’s taking a disproportionately long time compared to 2010. Have you experienced performance problems with 2013?
With the new encryption scheme, protecting and unprotecting a worksheet in code takes a touch longer. I don’t know what exactly to do about the protection problem.
However, your knowledge of VBA leaves much to be desired.
The first thing I did was get stingy about my protection.
Whereas before I was pretty liberal, protecting and unprotecting whenever I needed to, now I’m unprotecting and reprotecting exactly one time. As an experiment, I removed all protection from the templates and removed all the unprotecting and reprotecting from my code. That cuts it in half, although I can’t release this into the wild with no protection.
Here is a simple code which gives a message box showing the values in column A starting from row 2 to the last row.
The status bar will show the message “Macro running” as the code is running, and once the code is done, it will show “Ready” which is one of the default Excel messages. Display Status Bar = True With Worksheets(“Sheet1”) lrow = .
If this sounds like you, then Public Sub Add Content To Sheet() Dim start Time As Double start Time = Timer Dim r As Excel. Range("A1: P30") Dim i As Long Dim repeat As Long Dim cell As Excel. Range For repeat = 1 To 30 For Each cell In r cell. Value Mod 2 = 0) Then ' if i is even, color the cell white cell.
