Hi all, I have a macro that executes ~200 queries which modify the data, create some tables etc.

Please follow the below steps to execute the VBA code to save the excel file. Step 2: Press Alt F11 – This will open the VBA Editor.

Step 3: Insert a code module from then insert menu.

My Excel tool performs a long task, and I'm trying to be kind to the user by providing a progress report in the status bar, or in some cell in the sheet, as shown below.

But the screen doesn't refresh, or stops refreshing at some point (e.g. The task eventually completes but the progress bar is useless. For i=1 to imax ' imax is usually 30 or so fraction Done=cdbl(i)/cdbl(imax) Application.

Discover this word and many others that you can use in combination with Application in the downloadable course on Excel macros. As you can read: starting in cell A1 a value of "99" will be entered in the selected cell then the cursor will move one cell down to enter "99", repeat the process until the row number of the selected cell is 3000 and come back to cell A1.

Step 5: Now press F5 to execute the code and observe when Screen Updating is ON and OFF.Status Bar = Format(fraction Done, "0%") & "done..." ' or, alternatively: ' status Range.value = Format(fraction Done, "0%") & "done..." ' Some code.......Next i Sub Progress Meter() Dim boo Status Bar State As Boolean Dim i Max As Integer Dim i As Integer i Max = 10000 Application.Display Status Bar = True ''//Make sure that the statusbar is visible For i = 1 To i Max ''// imax is usually 30 or so fraction Done = CDbl(i) / CDbl(i Max) Application.Status Bar = Format(fraction Done, "0%") & " done..." ''// or, alternatively: ''// status Range.value = Format(fraction Done, "0%") & " done..." ''// Some code....... Display Status Bar = boo Status Bar State ''//Reset Status bar display setting Application.
