How can I make Excel aoutomaticly recalculate a value in a cell at a set interval, say 100 times a minute or any frequency I want?

An example would be helpful.

Hi John:

Tools / Options, Calculation tab.

You can set the calc to manual or automatic. If it is automatic, then it is "live" (immediate)updates. To my knowledge (I've been wrong so many times its embarrassing) there is no way to set calc to fractions of time.

Hi John

You would need to use VBA for this.

"Application.Ontime" method calling another OnTime procedure. This would basically render your Workbook unusable though as it would be constantly recalculating.
