Macro call from powershell

Copper Contributor

Hello All,


I have an excel macro with lot of formulas which takes 1 hour to execute and get the job done.

I also have a powershell script that calls the excel macro.

I would like to ask if calling a macro from powershell can speedup the execution than that of excel or not?

I would appreciate any help on this.

@YKPS_21 I would say no, as calling it out from PS will execute/open excel to do it resulting in using the same resources and processes.  

In order to speed it up, I would try to import the data into PS and work directly in there if necessary work with Runspaces to process the data in parallel.
