Problem: Flashing Screen.

Posted by Uttam on July 05, 2001 1:31 PM


One of the macros I execute, opens two files, copies values from one to the other. My macro changes focus from one file to the other, copies, then "pastes special" Values into the first.

In all this switching back and forth from the first to the second to the first and back, the screen just displays each file for a moment and the screen seems to flash.

Is there someway I can stop this flashing?

Thanks in advance

place this at the start of your code
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
'then make sure you turn screenupdating back on
'place this at the end of your code
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
