Another way to do this would be to not make the application visible until all updates are made.  At the end of the procedure.

Hi Steiner,
you know earlier I made a lot of ExcelVBA macros (even of over 1000 lines - this was the german version) but I really forgot this command. Thanks again

if you r not using early binding then why dont u use it. early binding will make the process faster than the late one.

try this if u r not using this:

dim <variable name> as Excel.application
'this uses the previous instance of the excel application if any running
set <variable name>=getobject(,"excel.application")
'this where we create the object.
set <variable name>=createobject("excel.application")

regular code....

this will help a lot
