Application.ScreenRefresh Method (Word)

Updates the display on the monitor with the current information in the video memory buffer.

expression .ScreenRefresh

expression Required. A variable that represents an Application object.

You can use this method after using the ScreenUpdating property to disable screen updates. ScreenRefresh turns on screen updating for just one instruction and then immediately turns it off. Subsequent instructions don't update the screen until screen updating is turned on again with the ScreenUpdating property.

This example turns off screen updating, opens Test.doc, inserts text, refreshes the screen, and then closes the document (with changes saved).

Dim rngTemp As Range 
ScreenUpdating = False 
Documents.Open FileName:="C:\DOCS\TEST.DOC" 
Set rngTemp = ActiveDocument.Range(Start:=0, End:=0) 
rngTemp.InsertBefore "new" 
ActiveDocument.Close SaveChanges:=wdSaveChanges 
ScreenUpdating = True
