Arthur in some cases it is better in others I don’t think so.
The ild school was that using With allowed the interpreter to not have to
look things up so much.
Take Excel sort
The parent is the sheet, you want most of your code to act on the sort
itself (and some on sort.sortfields
If I write
Once upon a time all those references to Wks and to wks.sort would cost
some performance. So using
With wks.sort improved performance.
Just lately this code took all night to run and still didn’t finish, trying
to delete most of over 52,000 styles that contaminated my macro workbook by
copying client sheets and ranges:
Dim iStyle as long
Dim myStyles as Styles
Set myStyles = ThisWorkbook.Styles
For iStyle = .Count to 1 Step - 1
If. ….. then
For each myStyle in ThisWorkbook.Styles
If. ….. then
Orders of magnitude faster. I suspect (only) that by setting an object
equal to a collection INSTEAD OF just referencing the collection in the For
Next loop, that VBA wasn’t “appreciating” the fact that with each deletion
the myStyles object was shrinking. As opposed to using Thisworkbook.Styles
which VBA has to evaluate after every Next statement, giving it a chance to
hold less in memory with every loop.
