Can Workbook Be Activated Without Unhiding It

May 8, 2013

I have a macro that activates and copies data from a hidden workbook. The problem I'm having is that when the macro is done, the workbook is no longer hidden.

I used this code here to "re-hide" the workbook...

Code:
Windows("Macros.xlsm").Visible = False

...but now, everytime, it asks me if I want to save the changes to my workbook. I would like to copy a worksheet from this hidden workbook without having to worry about whether to save changes or not everytime I run this macro.

Unhiding Certain Sheets Upon Entering The Workbook...

Feb 24, 2009

My database has what I call the 'cover page'. On the sheet is a command button that will take the user to the next page. Basically what I want to do is upon opening the workbook, the user is taken to the cover page, and all the rest of the sheets remain hidden until they click a command button to 'enter' the workbook. P.S. I have some sheets that need to remain hidden though...

Of course the other way is just to have a userform that opens when the book is opened to do the same thing. Where would I put the code for the userform, in ThisWorkbook or a separate module?

Step Through Works But Not When Activated

Sep 24, 2007

I have written this code to change the colour of a row of cells to bright green and to change the cell contents of cell(Row, 15) from L to F: This is the main workbook into which are pulled values from three others. I then want it to open one of the subsidiary workbooks, that feeds the information, to change the same job row to bright green and to change the cell contents of cell(Row, 15) from L to F. Then I want to save the changes and return to the main sheet: - The ActiveCell contains the Job Number.

Option Explicit
Public rw As Integer
Public Col As Integer
Public Job As String
Public JobNo As String
Public RowNo As Integer
Public wName As String
Public times As Integer
Public Pips As String
Public Nicolas As String
Public Cindys As String
Public wb

Sub FinishedinOfficeCindy()
.
rw = ActiveCell.Row
JobNo = ActiveCell
Col = ActiveCell.Column
If Col 1 Then
Check that the correct
MsgBox "Please choose the Job Number first"column is selected and
Exit SubThat the workbook is
End Ifthe correct one
If Cells(rw, 14) "Cindy" Then
MsgBox "Wrong Secretary Chosen - whoops!"
Exit Sub
End If

All works perfectly when I step through it but, when it is activated (Ctrl+Shift+C) it opens the other workbook and then seems to end? I even tried putting in delays to see if they would help but they didnt.

VBA - How To Extract A Value From Cell In Non-activated Worksheet

Mar 18, 2012

I found something similar here VBA - How to select a range in a non-activated worksheet but when I tried to "apply" it, I kept getting an error if the relevant sheet wasn't activated. My code

Code:
Dim SearchRange As Range, FindRow As Range
Dim column As String, search_string as string
column = "K"

[Code]...

What I want to do is to be able to search for a specific value in a specific column on the "Combo boxes" sheet, which isn't activated (the number of rows will never be large, thereof the hard-coded 200).

I get the impression that some sites say the relevant sheet has to be activated, others say it doesn't.

The code above works fine if the sheet is activated, otherwise it fails with error 91 on the msgbox row.

Create Unique List Each Time Worksheet Is Activated

I am getting a run time error 1004 during a copy-paste of a named range. I've read other posts and the help file and know it's related to defining an object, but I'm not clear on exactly what hasn't been defined.

Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("Dates_Filtered").Copy Destination:=Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("lCell") ' fails on this line

Filter A List By The Criteria Selected In A Listbox, And Activated By A Command Button

Dec 14, 2009

I'm trying to Filter a list by the criteria selected in a listbox, and activated by a command button. My problem is the sort criteria. I have 11 regions, numbered 01EPS through 11EPS. Sorting by any of these criteria works just fine.

The problem is that I also want to be able to sort by ALL of the regions at once. I can do this by using a custom filter. I recorded a macro to see what the difference was, and it simply a matter of changing 01EPS to "=*EPS". However, adding that to my case list results in an error message of "Compile Error: Syntax Error".

Hiding/Unhiding Rows

Feb 8, 2010

I have a problem with hiding and unhiding columns. Is there a way wherein I can automatically hide the row(s) if the cell = "N/A" and will unhide if it's not equal to "NA". see the attachment Im using excel 2003 btw. You can see in Sheet2 to that it contains the table for the student grades. "N/A" means that they are not enrolled on that subject. While in sheet1, What I want to happen is that you will select a student name and below, it will automatically display the grades of the student on their enrolled subjects only. So, those fields with "N/A" will hide and when I update the value of N/A it will unhide.

Unhiding Text Based On Result?

May 8, 2014

see the sheet attached. To put into context, I am a teacher and want students to work on tasks, and have the answers to those tasks available to them but hidden, until a give them a password that unhides it.

On the attached document, Lesson1! K35:Q41 i have some answers to the task beside it in B35:H40. I want to hide these answers in some way (without affecting the columns as there is data above) and then when I want students to see the answer I give it to them and they enter it into L43 in this example. At this point the answers are revealed and stay revealed for revision purposes.

This will be repeated using different passwords for different tasks throughout the workbook e.g. L52 will be a different password revealing the answer in K48.

This is the code I am using, which is effective in hiding and unhiding the rows. However, the issue I am having is: I want Row 20 to stay visible if either one of the checkboxes is marked. This string of code runs the "hide" portion if either box is unchecked.

Hiding/unhiding Specific Rows Containing Zero

I would need two macros for one of my projects. I did search the forum, but I couldn't find anything what would suit my needs.

The first macro should hide those rows which would contain 0 (zero) in a specific column (in my workbook it's E). The secon macro should unhide the hidden rows.

Sound so easy ... but sadly I can't do it.

Hiding And Unhiding Two Sets Of Worksheets

Oct 11, 2008

My Workbook has 72 worksheets split into two. The first 36 include all the data, but the second 36 have one element removed.

I am very grateful to RoyUK and others who have steered me towards some code that allows me to hide and unhide the first 36 sheets exactly as I want, but when I add the second 36 the code comes up with an error saying the Procedure is too large.

I did want to split the code into two parts activated by two validated drop down menus, but this did not work either.

If I have two drop down menus at D8 and G8 is it possible to have two separate codes as follows

Hyperlink VBA Hiding / Unhiding Lines?

Feb 27, 2013

Is it possible to set up a hyperlink for a cell, when clicking on it, hides/unhides certain rows below that cell. For example, having a full employee roster, each name having 15 rows underneath. By making the Name cell hyperlink, and by clicking on it, I would like to only hide every 4, 5, & 7th line underneath the hyperlinked name. A full list could have 150 employees on one sheet.
