VB6 - Count records based on 2 column issue

Hello all

I have this code bellow that looks at 2 columns in my grid and based on 3 criteria, it counts the number of records.

But my problem is that it takes about 5 minutes to count when i only have 14 rows in my grid.
That should take seconds to count.

Would you know why?

Can i improve that code to run faster?

Thanks again



 Dim lngRow1 As Long
    Dim lngRow2 As Long

    ' MSHFlexGrid1.WordWrap = True
    LockWindowUpdate Me.hWnd


    For lngRow1 = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows - 1
        'PO planned without a personnal rate
        If MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngRow1, 7) = "S" And MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngRow1, 20) = "0" Then
            po_plan_without_rate = po_plan_without_rate + 1
        End If

        'PO not planned with rate
        If MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngRow1, 7) <> "S" And MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngRow1, 20) <> "0" Then
            Text3 = po_plan_without_rate + 1
        End If

        'PO not planned with no rates
        If MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngRow1, 7) <> "S" And MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngRow1, 20) = "0" Then
            Text4 = po_plan_without_rate + 1
        End If
    Next

That's good. Try this which should be faster.

    Dim lngRow1 As Long
    Dim lngRow2 As Long

    ' MSHFlexGrid1.WordWrap = True
    LockWindowUpdate Me.hWnd


    For lngRow1 = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows - 1
        Select Case True
            'PO planned without a personnal rate
            Case MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngRow1, 7) = "S" And MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngRow1, 20) = "0"
                po_plan_without_rate = po_plan_without_rate + 1
            'PO not planned with rate
            Case MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngRow1, 7) <> "S" And MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngRow1, 20) <> "0"
                Text3 = po_plan_without_rate + 1
            'PO not planned with no rates
            Case MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngRow1, 7) <> "S" And MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngRow1, 20) = "0"
                Text4 = po_plan_without_rate + 1
        End Select
    Next

Try putting the LockwindowUpdate back in and adding this at the end

LockWindowUpdate &0

Is that all the code in the procedure? I ask because that shouldn't even take 1 second with just 14 records.

Hi MartinLiss

Yes, just that code.

That's what is strange.

Is this new code or a new problem? By that I mean did it ever run faster? If it did then try rebooting.

Wilder1626Author Commented:
no, this is a new code. I have other code, bigger and it run faster that the one that cause me issue.

Pretty weird i would say.

Martin LissOlder than dirtCommented:
Yes I agree. Can you attach your project and tell me how to trigger that code?

Also I assume that po_plan_without_rate is a variable and not a Function or Private Property, right?

So weird

Just removed LockWindowUpdate Me.hWnd and it takes a second to run.
