Excel 2007 :: Hide And Unhide Sheets Using Checkboxes?
May 13, 2014
Using Excel 2007, I have a workbook with 7 sheets. The first one is a Navigation Page where I have checkboxes (form controls, not active X) with the names of the other 6 sheets. When the box(es) are checked, the sheet(s) become visible. I have accomplished this by assigning macros I recorded.
I need to now add the opposite: When the box(es) are unchecked, the sheets become hidden. From googling and looking for other threads/forums here, I gather that I need to add code/ VBA, but I know nothing about these at all.
I created an excel Calendar that has columns for months and weeks, and rows for hours of the day.
I have two drop lists one contains months, and one contains weeks.
Basically if you choose august from the first drop down list, all the rest of the columns that are not August disappear, and the sheet only shows august.
The second dropdown selects the week. If you choose week 1, it shows week 1 of this particular month. This second drop down is what I do not know how to make work.
This is the VBA code i used.
Private Sub ComboBox2_Change() Select Case ComboBox2.Text Case "May" Range("All").EntireColumn.Hidden = True Range("May").EntireColumn.Hidden = False
I do not know how to make the code or choose the categories so that It only shows the week of the month chosen in the first column. Will I have to name each and every group of columns for each and every month as May - Week 1, May - Week 2...... June - Week 1, June - Week 2, etc... or is this a way around it?
I have an Excel 2007 workbook which has five sheets in. I just wondered whether it is possible to hide all five of them when the workbook is first opened. Also I would like the user to be asked for a password when they wish to unhide a sheet, with the password being different for each of the sheets.
Is there also a way to do this which won't be affected by Excel disabling all Macros when the application initially opens.
I'm creating a "welcome" page to the workbook with instructions on how to update data. The data between the 20 sheets consists of pivot tables, charts and summary data. The Visible sheets are data for management's review (all protected). The 3 hidden sheets are pivot tables that the user needs to pull data from and the very hidden sheets are not to be seen by anyone.
In my "welcome" page, I added the instructions of how to update data, but wanted an area where I could assign a checkbox or button to click on for the user to unhide my 3 hidden sheets (say Sheet1, Sheet2 and Sheet3). I do not want it to unhide my very hidden sheets. Then, when the information needed is retrieved from those sheets, I would like the user to use a checkbox or button to hide the 3 hidden sheets again. Is there a way to do this?
I tried creating custom view but couldn't do that because of the pivot tables (the option was disabled). I'm a beginner in VBA so don't even know how to begin.
Macro 1- hides Sheet1 and unhides Sheet2 Macro 2- Hides Sheet2 and unhides Sheet1
I used the macro recorder to attempt to make this work but am running into a problem if Macro1 is run two times consecutively. In this situation the macro displays a debugging error b/c Sheet1 is hidden. Is there a way to get around this...possibly using an if then statement?
I have 16 sheets and 4 additional sheets that will kind of 'Group' these 16sheets. For example: I have 'Sheet1', 'Sheet2', 'Sheet3'......, 'Sheet16'. 4 additional Sheets are: 'Group1', 'Group2', 'Group3', 'Group4'.
I need a help with macro so that when this workbook is open all 20 sheets ('Sheet1', 'Sheet2', 'Sheet3'......, 'Sheet16') will go into hiding and only 4 additional Sheets ('Group1', 'Group2', 'Group3', 'Group4') will be visible. Now, these 4 sheets will have the command button links to the following sheets:
This being said, when you click on each command buttons, the respective sheets will open up and when click on 'Hide All', all of the open sheets for that *additional sheet' for example sheet 'Group1' will go into hiding again.
I have a workbook which has roughly 50 sheets. What I'm trying to do is automatically hide/unhide sheets based on the cell values in the first sheet. So in sheet1 cell A1 i would a value of FALSE which would trigger sheets1, 2, & 3 to hide, when that value changes to TRUE then those same sheets would unhide. I need to replicate that for the 10 corresponding sets of sheets, but for each grouping of sheets a different cell in sheet1 would be the trigger, cell A2 = sheets 4 - 10, cell A3 = sheets 11 - 20, etc.
I have several workbooks, and the workbooks can include several sheets. Is there's an easy way to create a macro so the user selection to be hidden or unhidden is hidden or unhidden in all sheets in the workbook. E.g. if the user selection is to hide rows 54-189, the macro hides rows 54-189 in all sheets in the workbook.
There is 2 parts to my question and I will explain them as best as i can.
1. I have a front sheet and 12 other sheets ( 1 for each month of the year) they all have the same layout. On my front sheet I want to create a button which will capture the sheet onto my front sheet for the current month, whether this means to make 12 buttons to choose which month is displayed on the front sheet or one that detects the date by system time i dont mind.
2. These 12 sheets will ideally be hidden and what I am wanting is again, on the front sheet 12 buttons for each sheet to bring up the corresponding hidden sheet so they can be viewed, and then on each of the 12 sheets another button which will hide them and return the user to the front sheet.
I have a workbook that contains approx 50 sheets and will grow to somewhere in the region of 200.
The majority of sheets, which contain the raw data referenced by the renaining sheets, are hidden. I will occasionally need to update the data in some of those hidden sheets and would like an easy / quick way of unhiding them.
The front page has several comboboxes which select the page needed for the calculation being performed, eg I select Chapter2 in the first combobox, section 4 in the second and page 12 in the 3rd. The output is combined / abbreviated into into a cell eg Ch2-Sec4-P12. That being the name of a sheet I then use INDIRECTs to retrieve the data I want and place it in a spare sheet, that works well.
I'd like to do the same to select the sheet to unhide. I can setup the comboboxes to give the name of the sheet I want to unhide / hide in a cell but then I'm stuck;
How can I use the contents of a cell in place of the sheet name in a macro command such as Sheets("data").Visible = Not (Sheets("data").Visible) ?
Well to start off I am using Excel 2007, I have an invoice template set up across two sheets (Invoice & Price Table), on the first page is the actual invoice that needs to be filled in. I have made an userform for being able to fill in the invoice number,what type of test was done, and also things like hours and miles (an their costs per also)
. Now I am wanting to try and get it to where I can have the form look at the type of test cell and from there select the price located on the second sheet that is appropriate to that type, the thing is, there are two possible prices that it can be depending on if the company wanted the results "rush". I was suggested that I could use a check box on the invoice to indicate in the spreadsheet that it is a rush, and somehow link that in with a vlookup to be able to get what I wanted, but I'm not sure exactly how I would go about doing that.
- 12 unique values in column 6 which represent states within the country. - 7 unique values in column 25 which represent the types of services. - 5 unique values in column 27 which represent the days for doing the services.
I also have a user form that contains CheckBoxes equivalent to all above unique values, and I want the CheckBoxes to do the duty of a filter, whereby after selecting the needed CheckBoxes and clicking on a seperate botton "creating report", I want to show on the spread sheet only the rows of the values being checked and all other rows which don't contain the needed values should be either hidden or deleted.
Basically I have a big table containing several columns for the different quarters. (Each quarter has several columns which are not all next to each other)
I would like to use 4 checkboxes which the user can select the show or hide the columns for that quarter. E.g. if Q1 and Q3 are checked only those are visible)
(if quarter 1 clicked than all columns are visible if unclicked hidden).
The code I have written workes well for the first checkbox (Q1), but for the other quarters (Q2, Q3 and Q4) the columns get hidden when checked (which should be the other way round) and don't get unhidden when unchecked.
Sub CheckboxQone() If Range("$A$1").Value = True Then Call showQ1 Else: Range("$A$1").Value = False Call hideQ1
I am trying to make an excel toggle button and am stumped. I am trying to create a toggle button that hides the entire row if it finds a 0 in a preset range that I am calling "Alpha". I have tried this code but it's not working.
Code: Private Sub ToggleButton1_Click() If ToggleButton1.Value = True Then For Each cell In Range("Alpha")
I need a VBA code that will when used with a Form Control "Check Box" will unhide / hide a row. To be more exact, I'm needind the code to "Hide" row 34 when unchecked and "Unhide" the same row when checked. I'm using Excel 2010.
I see this forum and the example works perfectly in Excel 2003.. But we are using Excel 2007 now and it doesn't appear to be recognizing the user and is always refering to the "else" in the vb codes. Does this code for not work in 2007? Oh and I am refering to Post #10 on there with the attachment that will hide different sheets depending on which user is getting on the file.
I am trying to create a spreadsheet which will open with sheet1 showing 'Terms and conditions' with 2 check box's. Once the check box's are checked I then want subsequence sheets to unhide. E.g check box 1 ticked - will unhide sheet 2 - (containing the report) check box 2 ticked - will unhide sheet 3 - (containing the data)
Basically, by the use of check box's I am trying to get the user to read and agree to terms/disclaimer of the use of data. Therefore can the workbook also always open with the one sheet 'terms and conditions' showing only.
I created a workbook called "controlelijst.xls" using Excell 2007. In this workbook i created a sheet that i use as a template, it has conditional formatting all over it. That in fact is not the problem. I copy this template for every new issue i have.
The thing i would like to see happening now is when i enter the value "Y" in cell O10 that the active sheet on wich the value is entered becomes hidden. Because the reason for setting this value is that all conditions are met on this sheet and it does not have to be visible anymore unless i unhide it.
I have an intern that is working with me, and I have a file that I need updated but one of the columns has confidential information so I would like to just hide & password protect this column this way he can't access/view this information but still have access to modify the rest of the spreadsheet.
I currently have the following Macro for one of my many checkboxes in 2007 Excel:
It works perfectly until additional rows are added/deleted before the indicated rows in the code (It changes the number sequence in the workbook). The number sequence stays the same in the code which means I am now hiding rows either before (delete rows) or after (insert rows) the intended rows I want to be hidden. Is there a way to change the above code to remain with the assigned rows regardless of the adding/deleting of rows before it?
In excel 2007, I have an embedded image on a sheet which I want to make it hidden by default. When someone hovers over a particular cell say cell B3, then image should be displayed below this cell (sort of hyperlinking) and when the cursor or activell cell is not in B3 it should be hidden again. What steps/technique/VBA code will make it happen ?
