Hi Damon

I am running formulas that goes and looks for information in over 1300 rows, when i added it ....it does fine but the calculation is way slow now, and i have macro to take me to other worksheets, but once i click on the macro to go to that page it just takes forever to execute the macro, cause its calculating....is there a way to speed it up,,,,that i can put in vba as code so that others wont have to do anything?


Hi Tony,

I would be happy to take a look at your macro code and see what can be done to speed it up. You could simply follow up with your macro code.  But what would really e best so that I can see the entire context including formulas and data would be to email me a copy of your workbook.  My email address is VBAexpert@myway.com.
