Queries will run in the background if the correct command syntax is used.What method (action) are you using to execute your queries in the macro? I use the following Macro Options: Action: Open Query View: Datasheet Data Mode: Edit I would like to have each query saved with a different query name, so that I can modify them easily.I have tried setting screenupdating, displayalerts, displaystatusbar = false but i still get the message and it shows the macro going to the next doc. Are you using office 2007 and when you run the code you are running in debug mode? I have tried moving the screenupdating, displayalerts, displaystatusbar to different parts of the doc but i still get this. Display Status Bar = False For Each o Story In Current Doc. (that doesn't let you turn off screen updating..least I haven't found a way to do so for debuggin in 2007)Hey Malik thanks for your reply. Text End With Unload frm Title Set frm Title = Nothing Call Update Story Ranges(Active Document) Call Sheet Print Out Application. Don't forget error handling & turn the screen on before you try to msgbox an error or exit the sub.
You see you have a document opened named May2008What happens is you call the macro Update It will then conduct a find on the following path C:\A search is done on column C for May2008, the document that is open at that given time.
Screen Updating = False Workbook To Work On = "C:\forms\index.xls" 'If Excel is running, get a handle on it; otherwise start a new instance of Excel On Error Resume Next Set o XL = Get Object(, "Excel. Number 0 Then Excel Was Not Running = True Set o XL = New Excel. Screen Updating = False End If On Error Go To Err_Handler 'If you want Excel to be visible, you could add the 'line: o XL. When the macro is called for May2008, May2008 is found in say C5 and offsetting of cells will take place.
On Time Now Time Serial(0, 0, 10), "Clear Status Bar" Set a Doc = Active Document 'Word document name open (a Doc) is declared as Word Fn Word FN = Left(a Doc. Name) - 4) 'Open contains a match for Word Fn 'Application. These are also the names of work docs found in c:\forms\travel expenses.doc, c:\forms\training expenses.
I would like the queries to be invisible while they are running, but currently the user sees 50 query windows open/close which is ugly.
Is there a way to automatically minimize/hide query windows or disable screen update?
