    .Visible command (xls 97)

    I have a rather detailed macro that opens a lot of xls files then closes them. Id rather the user not see all the processing and only see the end result. I tried using Application.Visible = Flase at the begining and then Application.Visible = True as the last line to bring excel back on the screen but this does not do the trick. IS there a way to hide just the workbooks being opened and closed and ntot he entire excel application?

    You could use Application.ScreenUpdating = False to switch off the screen being updated as a result of your processing. Switch it back on with Application.ScreenUpdating = True.

    This should mask most processing actions.
