HI Guys,

I've got this line in my code to put the message at the bottom. But what line do I need to put in to get it back to normal when it has finished.

Application.StatusBar = "Please Wait - Multiple Calculations Taking Place (Approx. 5-6 Mins)"

Cheers
Andy
 

Excel Facts

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.

Hi, Andy,

Code:
Application.StatusBar = False
if you share a bit of your "loops", you can add some functionality
instead of telling users "wait 5-6 minutes", you can show them how much of the task is done (%)
you could even show an estimation at what time the procedure will be finished

kind regards,
Erik

Cheers both. Try the obvious ext time duffnut. D'oh.

That sounds good Erik. How I do that? This is what I have ( bit messy but it works at the moment ).

Sheets("QUERY").Visible = True
Application.StatusBar = "Please Wait - Multiple Calculations Taking Place (Approx. 5-6 Mins)"
Sheets("Temp final Data").Visible = True
Sheets("Sheet1").Visible = True
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Sheets("QUERY").Select
Columns("A:M").Select
Selection.Copy
Sheets("Temp final Data").Select
Cells.Select
Range("A1037").Activate
ActiveWindow.ScrollRow = 1
Range("A1").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _
False, Transpose:=False
Columns("A:M").Select
Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("A1"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlGuess, _
OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom
Rows("2:2").Select
Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp
Columns("A:A").Select
Selection.Find(What:="#value", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False).Activate
Sheets("QUERY").Select
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Visible = False
Sheets("Sheet1").Select
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Visible = False
Sheets("Temp final Data").Select
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Visible = False
Application.StatusBar = False
Selection.End(xlUp).Select
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Visible = False

TIP: use CODEbutton to display code

There is no loop...
When there is no loop you can add more messages before each action.

Thinking aloud...
IMPORTANT REMARK:
don't copy entire columns or sheets
restrict the range to what is needed
VERY IMPORTANT
your workbook is rather slow in calculationspeed, I presume
1. couldn't you cleanup to have it calculating faster ?
2. do you really need to calculate during the process ?

...hmmm, now I see there is not a lot
this is the "action-part"
Code:
Sheets("QUERY").Select 
Columns("A:M").Select 
Selection.Copy 
Sheets("Temp final Data").Select 
Cells.Select 
Range("A1037").Activate 
ActiveWindow.ScrollRow = 1 
Range("A1").Select 
ActiveSheet.Paste 
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _ 
False, Transpose:=False 
Columns("A:M").Select 
Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("A1"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlGuess, _ 
OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom 
Rows("2:2").Select 
Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp 
Columns("A:A").Select 
Selection.Find(What:="#value", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _ 
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _ 
MatchCase:=False).Activate

seems like you can enhance to get the following code

Code:
Sheets("QUERY").Select
Columns("A:M").Copy

Sheets("Temp final Data").Select
'don't think next lines are neede
'Range("A1").Select
'ActiveSheet.Paste 
Range("A1").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _
False, Transpose:=False
Columns("A:M").Sort Key1:=Range("A1"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlGuess, _
OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom
Rows("2:2").Delete Shift:=xlUp

'next line is dangerous: if the item is not found, the code will bug
'so only use if you're sure "#value" will appear else error-handling needed
Columns("A:A").Find(What:="#value", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False).Activate
before this process you can add
Code:
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
after
Code:
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic

so you'll get
Code:
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Sheets("QUERY").Select
Columns("A:M").Copy

Sheets("Temp final Data").Select
Range("A1").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _
False, Transpose:=False
Columns("A:M").Sort Key1:=Range("A1"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlGuess, _
OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom
Rows("2:2").Delete Shift:=xlUp

'next line isdangerous: if the item is not found, the code will bug
'so only use if you're sure "#value" will appear else error-handling needed
Columns("A:A").Find(What:="#value", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False).Activate

Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
this should speed up a lot (reduce calculation time to 1/4)

best regards,
Erik

You're WELCOME :)

suggestion: start another thread trying to get some tips about your calculationspeed: post an overview, some formulas ...

check out "search" and recommended add-ins and link before ...

greetings from Belgium,
Erik
