To further enhance performance please have a look at the following remark in _Excel_Open:

Quote

To enhance performance set $bScreenUpdating to False. The screen will not be updated until you set it back to true ($oExcel.ScreenUpdating = True).

Thanks @water for the tip to increase performances, it can be useful for heavy images, however, even if slower, seeing the image that fills the cells is also fun  :tv_happy:
Thanks again.

Thanks @lorenkinzel , I agree with you, is better say "unusual" in fact.

Improper is improper here.....:ermm:  ? ...improper is improper...  sorry for the pun, not being a native speaker produces strange linguistic effects :)

      Hi, I have 5 notepad files with lot of data in each of it. The data are arranged in lines and i wish to get it pasted/copied into excel.  Say, i need to read notepad1 and paste the contents into sheet1 of excel and notepad2 to sheet2 and so on.  If i read the notepad and paste it line by line, it is taking lot of time.  Is there a way by which i can paste the whole of notepad file into excel sheet(and get it pasted line by line as shown in the attached excel), instead of using code to write it line by line?.. I was using Filewriteline(data, line i) initially to write to excel.  The 'i' value was incremented with for loop and the excel was updated, but this takes lot of time.  The expected excel format is attached here.  any help is appreciated.  thanks

      Hello, the script below will read column A from an excel file - and if a value matches in the browser, it will click the corresponding link and click on a specific button to paste the data, then writes "Completed" in Column B. It will continue to read from the excel file and do the same thing for all the remaining rows.

      What i am trying figure out now is if the excel crashes while the script/loop is running, I want to relaunch the excel file continue to the last row before the excel crashed. So if the value of column B is not marked as "completed", it should continue from that row
      Appreciate any help that I can get to achieve this.

      Note: it seems that if User Account Control (UAC) is enabled then 7zip is unable to overwrite the destination file (using the same name).
      In this case, a possible solution would be to rename the original excel file before (see _PathSplit in help file).
      In my case i prefer just to disable UAC
