How to refresh embedded items on an Excel 2013 worksheet?

How to refresh embedded items on an Excel 2013 worksheet?


I've embedded a shape (or icon) in on a spreadsheet by a macro. But the icon won't show the image of the item until the book is saved and reopened. What's the refresh statements to make it present itself right after the embedding is done?

Thanks in advance.

RE: How to refresh embedded items on an Excel 2013 worksheet?

Hmm, this one sounds interesting to me. I normally think of refresh as in refreshing data and/or links (more data). This sounds more like a screen refresh than data refresh.

One total idea/guess that comes to mind is to attempt to toggle ScreenUpdating off and back on:


Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Wait (Now + TimeValue("0:00:01"))
Application.ScreenUpdating = True 

If that works, it'll cost a second in the waiting portion, but it's worth a shot.

There's also the ScreenRefresh command that's mentioned by Microsoft (never tried, myself):

This line specifically from their example:



It may be you can simply add that one line of code to your file within the code for adding the image.

"But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Corinthians 15:57
