    Open the doc, open the VB editor (alt-F11), from the Debug menu, choose compile. Save the file, try running your code again. Let me know!

    guys il be extreamly please if dreamboats site answers this, Ok a work VBA script, running slow on different PC's?

    Thisis super complex and has all kinds of reasons, i coul write 100 pages on this one.

    simpl: its down to memory allocations of the PC spec.

    remember NT is commercial XP is domestic/office so these the difference, not many guys can run NT at home, unless they are techi, even load software is a dog, but its solid.

    NT built XP remember that, also the 32 bit addressing structures with NT admin technologies account for most.

    NT is slim and trin POWERing windows to deliver.

    XP is for amyone, and so is fat lumpy and rough.. i would bet NT wins if seet on same spec PC, NT will sucessfully manage data and resources better than XP will

    these are guesses as i have never tested this, but sounds spot on to me..
