How can you do a continuous recalc (F9) in Excel.

I have some time based cells that I would like to see updated once a second.  I can update manually using F9.

How can you update automatically on a continuous basis?

Thanks,

Mike

I need to update continuously...This option will only update when I change a cell.  

I would like it to update on its own about once per second.

Why do you need to update if no changes have been made??

I have to go along with jboddy on this one though here is the answer:

Initialise this only once:

Sub ReCalc()
Dim Start_Time

Application.Calculation = xlManual
Start_Time = Timer
Do
      DoEvents
      If Start_Time <= Timer Then
          Application.Calculate
          Start_Time = Timer + 1
      End If
Loop
End Sub
