Updating excel

Prerequisites For all of these examples, please do the following: General Analysis In terms of transitioning your code to the new approach, I have yet to experience any performance issues with 1000's of records, but that seems to be the first concern.If you test the approach and the overall performance is not an issue, then consider the approach.Disabled Enabled 0.61909653 2.105066913 0.619555829 2.106865363 0.620805767 2.106866315 0.625528325 2.102403315 0.625319976 2.0991179 0.621287448 2.105103142 0.621540236 2.101392665 0.624537531 2.106866716 0.620401789 2.109004449 There is one important thing to know about screen updating which I didn’t see in any previous answer.

I always assumed it was just used so that it didn't scare end users into thinking their PC was about to crash.

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.

Are their any benefits to transitioning our code to another approach with the OPENROWSET command?

Yes - You are correct the OPENROWSET command can directly support INSERT, UPDATE or DELETE operations as shown in these tips: Export data from SQL Server to Excel and Different Options for Importing Data into SQL Server.

This has been beneficial for us because in our environment because our business users provide data to us in the form of Excel spreadsheets.

Many of the situations end up translating to INSERT, UPDATE or DELETE code in one or more of our SQL Server databases.

The grater the amount of screen changes the bigger the impact will be. Other application settings that can make a difference to execution time are Calculation and Event handling. Enable Events = False ' Code here Clean Up: On Error Resume Next Application. Calculation = xl Calculation Automatic Application. Enable Events = True Exit Sub EH: ' Do error handling Go To Clean Up End Sub Sub test Screen Updating() Dim i As Integer Dim numb Switches As Integer Dim results As String 'swap between sheets this number of times numb Switches = 1000 'keep track of time Dim start Time As Double start Time = Time 'swap between sheets 1/2 (need both sheets or this will crash) For i = 1 To numb Switches Sheets(1 (i Mod 2)).
