Macro and Vista
Hi all, I had to buy a new laptop because in the old one the Lcd screen get broken.
I use it for work so I have bought a very good one, with large screen and high performances, but there is Windows Vista installed (In the old one there was xp).
The problem is that if I run the same macro in both the pc the new one is 9 time more slow than the old one: the old pc took 10 second and the new one 90.
I have tried with program for benchmark calculation and the new pc has been very fast.
I have only got problem with the macro but it simply orders a list with 9000 rows and 8 columns.
I have reinstalled office and the sp1 but nothing.
The problem is that this excel file will grow up but I can't downgrade to xp for driver and warranty problem.
Does anyone know why vista is so slow using the macro and how can I fix it?
Thank you very much

The user must come back and confirm they are not a autobot (spam bot) or I will ban the user and remove the thread.
It was not a actual signature, he just made the post look like a signature since sig links are disabled for non supporters.

Do you mean that you have a newer version of Office with the new machine, whereas the old machine has a older version of office?
The problem is that this excel file will grow up
Also, I'm assuming from the post that you are talking about a macro within a Excel worksheet correct?
I'm not too hot on macros within Excel, but i'm asking to help others gain more information into the problem for you

Thanks for confirming.One thing to note in future, you cant post signature links for a reason and you can always list companies in your details on the left side of the post so please dont post links that are not relevant to the topic.

Could you post a snippet of the code? What factors is the sort based on?

122 posts across different forums in the space of a day, some forums with a very tenuous link to Vista/macros, many of them already nuked and just coming back to say "No" is enough to get people wasting their time trying to answer? Maybe I'm out of Xmas spirit heh
