    Some of my spreadsheets are very large and have numerous formulas. I set the calculate to “Manual” so that the formulas only calculate at the user’s command. This allows for rapid entry. The problem is that when I open another small spreadsheet the calculation remains at “Manual”.

    I want the large files to open with calc set to “Manual” and the small files to open with calc set to “Auto”. Is this possible without a macro?

    If a macro is required, will I be able to automate it to run as the file opens? My macro skills are limited to EXCEL recording the keystrokes and mouse clicks; therefore, I can not write the macrocode. Please give details in your response.

    Thanks . . .

    Calculation mode is set for all open worksheets and is determined by the mode of the 1st worksheet opened. See http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;Q161546 for a detailed description.

    Hi --

    Mark W is right ...

    I only manual esle Excel calculates all day and gets on my wick. You will find taht calc is not needs as often as you think.

    I save CTRL+S all the time i need st and hit F9 as needed.

    TOP tip... if you have scripts that do a task i add calc to the top of the code.. so dat is good tht means live data (CURRENT) not bad data thtas older data. I work ibn finance and data changes on the spot so refresh is important priotr to reports or debt analysis.
