    Charts not reacting although macro working following upgrade to Excel 2016

    Hi

    I have a workbook looking at a time series of population data. When the macro is run the data is updated every second with the following years data. This continues until the final year of data is displayed. A chart is based on this data and the idea is that when the macro is run the data is updated and the chart displays the changing population year on year.

    We have recently upgraded to Excel 2016 and while the macro still works and the data still updates the chart does not until the macro finishes, then the chart displays the data from the final year.
    When viewed in an older version of Excel the macro works, the data updates and the chart updates as well

    I really don't understand why the data is updating but the chart isn't and I'm hoping one of you very clever people can help me. I'm wondering if I need a line of code after the data updates each time which forces the chart to update?

    This is a sample of the macro. It repeats 26 times until it reaches the end of the timeseries.

    Sub AnimatePyramid()
    '
    ' AnimatePyramid Macro


    DelayTime = TimeValue("00:00:01")

    ScreenUpdating = False


    ActiveSheet.Range("L1").Select
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "1"
    Range("m1").Select
    Application.Wait Now + DelayTime
    ActiveSheet.Range("L1").Select
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "2"
    Range("m1").Select
    Application.Wait Now + DelayTime
    ActiveSheet.Range("L1").Select
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "3"
    Range("m1").Select
    Application.Wait Now + DelayTime

    ScreenUpdating = True


    End Sub

    Have you tried commenting out the ScreenUpdating = False line?

    Yes I've tried that and it makes no difference.

    The screenupdating in this case will make no difference as you are missing the Application object. In your code it is just a variant variable you are changing.

    try adding in some Doevents. With xl2016 you need a couple more than previous versions

    Thank you so much Andy that has done the trick.
    My knowledge of vba is somewhat limited so I haven't got a clue what it means but it works

    Love your own website and have often used it for charting tips.
    I can't believe THE Andy Pope solved my problem!
