Using VBA to search table data is slow

    I am using Excel 2016 and have two sheets "Base" and "Update" data. I have the data in tables for dashboard purposes.

    However, i have several VBA compares that I run on the data and I noticed the other day that when the data is in a table the compares take about a 1 to 2 min's to run, BUT, if my data is not in a table the compare takes 10 to 15 sec's. When running 15+ report it added up.

    Has anyone seen this? If so how did you address?

    Thanks in advance for any and all help...

    Depends on multiple factors. I'd suggest uploading sample workbook that mirrors your actual workbook (with sanitized data) along with the code.

    VBA can be blindingly fast or soul destroyingly slow
    The only difference is how the task is implemented in VBA

    Can you either post the file or a sample file along with the code so we can see what your doing?
