Vba status bar stops updating

If you are running one of our add-ins, they normally will complete any task in just a few minutes.

Most will complete their tasks in just a few seconds.

If your data is extremely long - say a hundred thousand rows, the task can take up to 5-10 minutes to do.

While the task is being done there is almost always a status message being updated at the bottom left of the screen. This is a very rare and almost all the time the task is still being done and will be completed in a few minutes.

Then comment out the line which turns off screen updating and see what happens; you should find that you scroll down the sheet as the numbers get filled.

Screen Updating = True Try running it and you should see a short pause followed by column A getting filled with numbers.

I you have had Excel open for many hours, Excel will slowly run out of memory due to memory leaks.

Simply closing Excel and re-opening every hour or so is the best policy and often avoids problems. Most stores sell PCs with just enough memory to run Windows and the internet and not do anything else.

In some cases, you may see the progress bar complete, then start again. Screen Updating = false" because I saw the yellow highlight go over the line in debug mode. Calculation = xl Calculation Automatic Application. Screen Updating from within the code instead of the immediate window, but I'm fairly sure what I'll find. This function gets called by an event handler that catches a Commands Bar button event (? Basically, we create a menu bar and one of the buttons in our custom "File" menu is labeled "Load Portfolio" which calls this function. I have encountered the same symptoms and can't think as to why it's happening. I think that maybe something has broken in my excel because even when I closed out of excel and opened a brand new 2003 workbook with no previous code I was getting the same problem. The interesting thing is that *some* of my modules allow Screen Updating to be set to False, there's only a few that don't. However, I *can* change the Screen Updating from the immediate window. Screen Updating = False b Global Change Event = True Application. About to go home for the day, but I plan on trying to print Application. So while Screen Updating always is True in debug mode, this is not the issue for me.Situation: The macro we are going to create fills Range("A1: E20") with random numbers.When this occurs, the progress bar might be moving very slowly or seem like it isn't moving.

If you hold down the CTL key and press the BREAK key, this will interrupt the code and display a Microsoft Excel visual basic dialog box like the following When this box appears, click on the Continue button. If Excel is truly frozen, which is extremely rare, you will need to kill Excel via the Task Manager.
