Arguments

object

sheet

The name or index of the sheet for which to force formula recalculation. If sheet = "*", the flag is set for all sheets in the workbook.

value

logical specifying if formula recalculation should be forced or not

Details

The arguments sheet and value are vectorized such that multiple worksheets can be controlled with one method call.

Note
