Is there a way to have them open "in the background", so to speak? 'Operate on the new workbook, which is not visible to the user, then close it... Such a solution would be inappropriate for user workbooks.
There are a few tutorials floating around on the web with the particulars of what you can and can't do accessing a sheet this way. :) The problem with both i Devlop's and Ashok's answers is that the fundamental problem is an Excel design flaw (apparently) in which the Open method fails to respect the Application. Consequently, setting it to False is of no benefit to this problem. You can then store the price list on a shared location on a network somewhere and make it read-only.
Calculation = xl Calculation Automatic End Sub Sub Loop Example() Dim Cell As Range Call YK_Start Columns("B: F").
Then statement is evaluated; however, if you place it immediately after the If.. Left End With End If The line of code will only execute when it is reached during the running of your program.

If yes, where is the code Screen Updating and Enable Events must be placed (the most fitting place)? Therefore, there are patterns, everywhere in nature. I normally add one, two or all of them depending on what I am doing. Therefore, there are patterns, everywhere in nature. Screen Updating controls whether the screen re-draws it self. Rather than putting a rote "start of routine" and "end of routine" block, it probably would be better to know what one's code is doing and what it effects and put tailored "turn off" "turn on" code appropriate to that particular code.

I want to search through existing Excel files with a macro, but I don't want to display those files when they're opened by the code. Visible = False 'Visible is False by default, so this isn't necessary Dim book As Excel. If Patrick Mc Donald's solution is too burdensome due to the overhead of starting a second instance of Excel, then the best solution I've found is to minimize the time that the opened workbook is visible by re-activating the original window as quickly as possible: Dim Temp Wk Bk As Workbook Dim Current Win As Window Set Current Win = Active Window Set Temp Wk Bk = Workbooks.

Each time you change some thing in the sheet, Excel re-calculates all formulas.
One more thing to conside is Events, if one or more of those sheets have Worksheet_Chnage or Worksheet_Calculate event handlers each change that your code is doing will trigger them and your code need to wait till they return.
