EE Pros,

I have a simple macro that when fired, causes a flicker as it runs.  I've tried to use the "Application.Screenupdating = False, but either have it in the wrong place or am not using the correct line of code.  Any help would be appreciated.

Sub RestoreValueProps()

On Error Resume Next

 With ActiveSheet
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False

.Range("G12") = "=I150"
.Range("G14") = "=I151"
.Range("G16") = "=I152"
.Range("G18") = "=I153"
.Range("G20") = "=I154"
.Range("G22") = "=I155"
.Range("G24") = "=I156"
.Range("G26") = "=I157"

End With

End Sub

Open in new window


Thanks in advance,

B.

Edit:  Code placed in snippet with thanks and Initial removed to end

Try this

Sub RestoreValueProps()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False

On Error Resume Next

 With ActiveSheet
   
.Range("G12") = "=I150"
.Range("G14") = "=I151"
.Range("G16") = "=I152"
.Range("G18") = "=I153"
.Range("G20") = "=I154"
.Range("G22") = "=I155"
.Range("G24") = "=I156"
.Range("G26") = "=I157"

End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Are you aware that Application.ScreenUpdating is always True when debugging? Anyhow, your macro as written will trigger the Worksheet_Change event. Do you have an Application.ScreenUpdating = True line there?

There is nothing in your code that would cause a screen to flicker, although you should restore ScreenUpdating to True at the end of the code because it will not restore itself.

There must be something else that is causing the flicker, your code runs fine for me without switching off ScreenUpdating
