Updating microsoft excel
I also have had this problem with a very large spreadsheet that just stopped updating itself over the weekend, but having checked the above solutions, setting were already set to automatic, and sheet is too big to rebuild, so I was at a loss.
My solution was to find an old version of the same excel spreadsheet which was not having thses issuesbefore I archived it, which is of similar size and complexity to the current version.
I stripped the quotes and the cells calculated as normal.
In my instance I was using a particular add-in called PI Datalink.
Copy the contents of the spreadsheet to a new one, and deleted the old one (it wasn't a particularly important spreadsheet, thankfully), and everything was fine.
I can only assume that somehow the file had become corrupted.
I changed the setting as indicated above; but the auto-recalculate still did not work, and upon rechecking the "Calculation" option, found it had reset itself back to "Manual" all by itself.
Three attempts later and it was still adamant it wanted to be "Manual" and nothing else.
Turn screen updating off to speed up your macro code.
This example demonstrates how turning off screen updating can make your code run faster.
The example hides every other column on Sheet1, while keeping track of the time it takes to do so.
(other than through 3rd party tools like Soft Fluent's Sharepoint list synchronizer?
Every user will agree that Microsoft Excel is one of the most useful tools in the antiquity of modern computing.
