Editing a Table

I have created a table from DXE information. The table contains over1500 cells. Now i am trying to adjust the table to fit within a bordered 24"x36" sheet. I seems to take forever to make the adjustments while the table keeps recalculating. Is there a way to make the table adjustments without the table constantly updating the information contained within it?

There's a way, but it removes any visual clue as to how it is changing.

Make sure the ActiveX API is available to lisp:



Select the table and convert to an ActiveX object:

(setq tbl (vlax-ename->vla-object (car (entsel "\nSelect table: "))))


Suppress the updates:


(vla-put-RegenerateTableSuppressed tbl :vlax-true)



Go about the process of editing how you think it is needed.

Reenable the updates:


(vla-put-RegenerateTableSuppressed tbl :vlax-false)


You can suppress and un-supress as much as you like. It may help a bit.
