It’s not as fast as it used to be and it can begin to get pretty frustrating waiting a long time for your code to finish. Color = vb Black Else ' else, color the cell light gray cell. If you think about it, if there were of the screen to process, it should run faster, right? Now it should make sense why it’s a good idea to turn off Public Sub Add Content To Sheet() Application. Color = vb Black Else ' else, color the cell light gray cell. If this sounds like you, then Public Sub Add Content To Sheet() Dim start Time As Double start Time = Timer Dim r As Excel. Range("A1: P30") Dim i As Long Dim repeat As Long Dim cell As Excel. Try this out: shrink your Excel workbook window to a smaller size and run the code again. Screen Updating = False Dim start Time As Double start Time = Timer Dim r As Excel. Range("A1: P30") Dim i As Long Dim repeat As Long Dim cell As Excel. To achieve this we need to add a single line of code to the subroutine, just below the variable declarations.
In the "Info..." option in ASAP Utilities you can find the same brief description of each tool.
In the program there is also a search function which can be very useful: In the Excel menu choose ASAP Utilities » Find and run a utility...

To demonstrate the principle of this technique we'll need a small example procedure that makes lots of visible changes to the Excel workbook.
You can either download the example here, or create a new blank workbook, add around five worksheets to it and then copy the code shown below into a new module.
You can immediately run the utility from within the results window or add it to your Favorites menu by pressing the button or press the ?

Excel & Word have the Screen Updating method thru which a developer can lock the main window from unnecessarily redrawing itself whilst the macro is being executed. If left alone, redrawing is not only ugly on the eyes it also takes more time for the macro to reach completion.
Hence I created this generic wrapper to lock the window updates.
