Access turn off screenupdating

Rated 4.71/5 based on 523 customer reviews

This is a type of Screen Updating that the Screen Updating property doesn't touch.

For months I have figured that hiding the pointer during updates would speed up the process much more than turning Screen Updating off does.

Also, after a 'focus steal', any code that momentarily sets Screen Updating to True, and then back to False again to force a re-draw, doesn't happen. This often leads a user to believe they have to End Task on Excel when all they needed to do was wait a few more seconds.

Today, I’ll see if I can create a Pivot Table with Slicers and Sparklines that update as the user is working with the Slicers. I was able to generate some random data with some controlled data in MS Access, can I repeat the same in MS Query?

Another thing hiding the pointer stops is the dreaded 'focus stealing' phenomenon during which, when a user starts a process in Excel, but decides to check their Outlook while Excel is busy, then what Excel tends to do (and all Windows apps do this to some extent - MS Office is the worst though) is 'steal focus' - i.e.

Windows brings the Excel window 'back to top' even though it's too busy to interact, and takes the user away from the app that IS responding, back to an app that it then thinks is 'Not Responding' (when it is, but it's just busy).

If they start another instance of Excel, they can do whatever they want so I don't see what this is buying you.So, with Screen Updating set to False, if you manipulate or create a lot of screen objects (Autoshapes, Comments, etc.) then the process is very much slowed down (and also presents the user with a glitchy, messy looking visual feedback) by the mouse pointer continually changing between 'arrow only' and 'arrow with hourglass'.Even with a fixed cursor, it still flickers on/off wildly if a lot is happening.I've looked for a solution to this a number of times (sporadically, not desparately), and only on my last search did I find this.There are actually very good and valid reasons for doing this rather than changing the cursor shown.
