When I started reading more into improving the efficiency of your code I understood what it was for but how much of an effect does Turning off screen updating will only make a difference to execution time if the code interacts with Excel in a way that causes changes to the screen content.
You can use a form's Painting property to disable updates to that form, but some activities still seem to show through or cause flashing on the screen. Sometimes you need more control over screen repainting than you get with either Form. a string indicating text to be displayed within the status bar while screen updating is disabled. This sample form simply opens three reports in design mode and then closes them.
You can also optionally pass the method a second parameter?
Without the checkbox set, you will see the reports open and minimize, in design view. Echo method is simple to use, but many developers miss it, allowing their applications to appear somewhat dizzying as objects appear and disappear from the screen.
The acb Show Updates method really doesn't do much besides what a direct call to Application.
