Through the years, Excel macros have run slower and workarounds to speed them up have appeared on this site (screenupdating, visible, calculation properties) but I have seen nothing to date on this recent (for me) situation. Starting June of 2019 the macros I run doing copy/pastes slowed way down. For instance, I have a report creation macro which passes a project ID to an Excel workbook that in turns copies costs for that project into a chart's data area. I then copy the chart and paste it as a picture into the report workbook. There are 2 charts for each project and over a hundred projects reported on the report workbook. This macro before June would take 10 minutes to run tops; now it takes over 30 minutes. Similarly for a totally different report, the macro copies a template to the report workbook and populates it with data. It does that about 0 to 40 times. Before June it ran in under 5 seconds; now it runs in 30 seconds. I think I pointless to show the VBA code for the first report as it is basic copy/paste special which ran with no problems for 8 years. BTW, since June I had to add error handling to my copy/pastes as those started cropping up to for the first time (thank you Mr Excel for to handling code). Any ideas? Thanks.
