This list gives you a glance at the macro tools in ASAP Utilities. I'm sure you'll find some great time-saving tools such as many others did.

Raise Number:=vb Object Error ERR_NO_WINDOW_HANDLE, _ Description:="Unable to get the Power Point Window handle" Exit Property End If If Lock Window Update(hwnd) = 0 Then Err.

Raise Number:=vb Object Error ERR_WINDOW_LOCK_FAIL, _ Description:="Unable to set a Power Point window lock" Exit Property End If Else ' Unlock the Window to refresh Lock Window Update (0&) Update Window (hwnd) hwnd = 0 End If End Property 'Sample Usage: Sub Long Processing Sub() ' Lock screen redraw Screen Updating=False ' --- Long time consuming code ' Redraw screen again Screen Updating=True ' Also see below article for another example of usage of the code End Sub It's fairly simple to open a Power Point file (*.ppt) for editing using VBA code however opening a Power Point Show (*.pps) file for editing is altogether another matter. Open method and it defaults to open the file in Slide Show mode. The routine below illustrates a manner of woring around the default behaviour and opening the file for editing.

It also means that we cannot tell the macro recorder to not record our steps of selecting cells, sheets and scrolling around, even though the selecting of cells, sheets and scrolling is not needed in true VBA code.

When we set Screen Updating property of an application object to false then it will speed up the macro. Please find the below example for Screen Updating Property of an application object in excel VBA.
