Vba application screenupdating off

I would like the queries to be invisible while they are running, but currently the user sees 50 query windows open/close which is ugly.Is there a way to automatically minimize/hide query windows or disable screen update?If we set Screen Updating property to TRUE then it turns on the screen updating else turn off the screen updating. In the above syntax Application represents object and Screen Updating is the Property of Application object.When we set Screen Updating property of an application object to false then it will speed up the macro. Please find the below example for Screen Updating Property of an application object in excel VBA.' -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ' You are free to use this code within your own applications, add-ins, ' documents etc but you are expressly forbidden from selling or ' otherwise distributing this source code without prior consent.

Declare Function Find Window Lib "user32" Alias "Find Window A" _ (By Val lp Class Name As String, _ By Val lp Window Name As Long) As Long ' Use Lock Window Update to prevent/enable window refresh Declare Function Lock Window Update Lib "user32" _ (By Val hwnd Lock As Long) As Long ' Use Update Window to force a refresh of the Power Point window Declare Function Update Window Lib "user32" (By Val hwnd As Long) As Long Property Let Screen Updating(State As Boolean) Static hwnd As Long Dim Version No As String ' Get Version Number If State = False Then Version No = Left(Application.

In the above code, you could omit the lines that create and use the Word.

Application object and replace them with invisibility lines: Notice that you want to put the Word. Visible = True line in an error-handler or in a spot where you know it will be run if something goes awry. (If you do get stuck with an invisible Word in the middle of a crash, you can launch the Task Manager and kill the WINWORD.

Hence I created this generic wrapper to lock the window updates.

Don’t forget to reset the Screen Updating valsue as TRUE at the end of the macro.

Please follow the below steps to execute the VBA code to save the excel file. Step 2: Press Alt F11 – This will open the VBA Editor.

Here is an example from a Visual Basic client: In the above example, Word launches but does not appear anywhere on the screen. (It does, though, show up in NT's Task Manager, in its list of running processes.) Despite this apparent lack of response, Word is very active and quite capable of doing everything it is told-creating a new document, inserting the message, , saving the file, closing it, and quitting.

You can verify this by launching Word the old-fashioned way and opening File1 at the bottom of the File menu after running the sample code.

Hi all, I have a macro that executes ~200 queries which modify the data, create some tables etc.

The macro runs when the user clicks a button on a form.
