Improving the speed of execution

EE Pros,

I have a WS that has a macro that resets all fields.  This macro, when fired, takes about 10 sec. to execute.  Given I don't write very efficient code, I was wondering if there was anything I could do to have this code execute cleaner/faster? Perhaps I have too many "With" statements..... not sure if there are some "tweaks" I can make here but would like to have someone take a quick look.

Much thanks in advance for the advise!

There are several enhancements you could make, this is the one that will make the biggest difference.

Macroshadow,  It works but still doesn't give much speed in execution.  Other changes that may make a difference?

You could turn off calculation for when you don't need it.

Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual 'turn off calculation

Application.Calculate 'use to force calculation

Application.Calculation =xlCalculationAutomatic 'turn calculation back on

This can sometimes speed up macro with many changes.

Steve,

So..... if I use the Application Calculation "off" and "on" at the beginning and end, although, I don't think I have a single "calculation" in the Macro (all of it is replacing and resetting fields), I can get more speed?

It doesn't matter if your macro has calculation or not, the Application.Calculation setting controls whether formulas or violate functions should be updated.

Overall the slow speed is do to the fact that you are writing to several different sheets and for that there is no faster way.

If you put calculation to manual at the start and automatic at the end, it may speed up the macro. It may be worth a shot and is only a small change to code.

Thanks guys!  I do have one little question.  While this didn't increase the speed by much, I do think the code is more efficient with your recommendations.  However, as I build the program, because the macros I have are auto updating when I input the additions, it's taking a while to build the WS.  Can I turn Macros off, build my app. then turn them back on without a problem?  That way I can at least put the additions in quicker.

Thank you again,

B.
