Worksheet Function | Screen Updating | Display Alerts | Calculation The mother of all objects is Excel itself. The application object gives access to a lot of Excel related options. As a result, Excel VBA closes your Excel file, without asking you to save the changes you made. If your workbook contains many complex formulas, you can speed up your macro by setting calculation to manual. For example, place a command button on your worksheet and add the following code line: When you click the command button on the worksheet, Excel VBA sets calculation to manual. You can verify this by clicking on File, Options, Formulas. Now when you change the value of cell A1, the value of cell B1 is not recalculated.
You can use the Worksheet Function property in Excel VBA to access Excel functions. For example, place a command button on your worksheet and add the following code line: When you click the command button on the worksheet, Excel VBA calculates the average of the values in cell A1 and cell A2 and places the result into cell A3. You can manually recalculate the workbook by pressing F9. In most situations, you will set calculation to automatic again at the end of your code.
While this practice can be convenient at small scale, it can easily result in corrupted, compromised, and confusing data, costing the company enormous time and money and lead executives to make incorrect decisions.

For example, place a command button on your worksheet and add the following code line: When you click the command button on the worksheet, Excel VBA closes your Excel file and asks you to save the changes you made. To instruct Excel VBA not to display this alert while executing code, update the code as follows. As a result, Excel recalculates the workbook automatically each time a value affecting a formula changes. If you look at the formula bar, you can see that the formula itself is not inserted into cell A3. For example, place a command button on your worksheet and add the following code lines: As a result, your code will run much faster and you will only see the end result (10000).A lot of forum posts and blogs may say use Broadcasting or Web reporting, but thats not something we are looking at investing time in at this stage.
