Hide/ Unhide Sheets With Macro

I want to run 2 different macros:

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?

Macro To Unhide Then Hide Sheets
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:

Sheet 'Group1':'Sheet1', 'Sheet2', 'Sheet3', 'Sheet4', 'Hide All'
Sheet 'Group2':'Sheet5', 'Sheet6', 'Sheet7', 'Sheet8', 'Hide All'
Sheet 'Group3':'Sheet9', 'Sheet10', 'Sheet11', 'Sheet12', 'Hide All'
Sheet 'Group4':'Sheet13', 'Sheet14', 'Sheet15', 'Sheet16', 'Hide All'

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.

Macro To Unhide / Hide Sheets With Combobox Selection
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) ?

Hide Sheets, Then Need Password To Unhide
See I have hidden my sheets and I need them to stay hidden.

But when I need to unhide them, a password should be needed to unhide them.

Maybe add a button on one of the open sheets that when pressed will unhide the sheets but will promt for password.

VBA To Hide/Unhide Sheets Based On Cell Value
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.

Hide/unhide Selected Range In All Sheets
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.

Capture Cells From One Sheet Into Another. Hide/Unhide Sheets
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.

Macro To Hide/unhide A Row
I made this simple little macro to hide/unhide a row on a different sheet based on a check box. The row hides fine. The problem I have is unhide. I uncheck the box, but the row stays hidden. What am I missing to make this little gem come to life? This is for tracking popcorn sales for scouting and I'm trying to make it as easy to use as possible.

Sub Patrol1_Scout1()
If True Then
Sheets("Show_n_Deliver_Sold").Rows("7:7").EntireRow.Hidden = True
End If

If False Then
Sheets("Show_n_Deliver_Sold").Rows("7:7").EntireRow.Hidden = False
End If
End Sub

Hide Unhide Rows Via Macro
I have a workbook that has 500 rows. In order to be able to print the spreadsheet, I have added a Macro in that hides any rows that have a "0" in the A column. I then put an if/then formula (ex. if(isblank(A5),0) so that if the cell was blank and 0 would be there and therefore the row would be hidden.

The problem now is that I want a new row to become unhidden everytime the row above has data in it. So, if row 5 gets data put into it, row 6 would become unhidden. The problem I'm running into is that the data in column A is peoples names, and therefore each row will have a different name (i.e. different data).

1. Is there a macro to do this?

2. (This may be a really stupid question, but...) Can you run 2 macros in the same sheet?

Hide/unhide Col Macro Based On Cell Value
I have a worksheet that contains 10 columns of data. In row 2 I have a formula that will display the result "x" if the data in that column should NOT be hidden, and for all columns of data without an "x" in row 2 I would like to hide the entire column.

Therefore, I am looking for a macro that looks across the range of cells E2:N2 and if there is not an "x" in the cell, then hide that column...

To make things a little more complicated, the value in row 2 will change when other values are amended on other worksheets that feed into this one and I will need the macro to 'unhide' the column as soon an "x" appears in row 2

Conflict Between Auto Save&close Macro And Show/hide Sheets Macro
I am trying to make a save&close workbook macro.

I found several examples on google, but unfortunatly it conflicts with another macro I use for forceing users to enable macros (hide all sheets except one if macros are disabled).

The attached file is an example contaning the save&close code and the show/hide sheets depending on macros enabled.

If the file is opened with macros disabled then only one sheet will be visible.
If the file is opened with macros enabled other sheets are visible.

The problem if that this code uses a custom save, witch makes the save&close not save... (in module1 and in ThisWorkbook)

The pourpose of the save&close is to make sure some users don't forget the excel open and thus block access to it. So if a certain idele time passes excel has to save and close without any confirmation messages.

Hide/Unhide Row Event
It seems there may be an event or something that happens when a row is hidden/unhidden.
I have this simple function that gives TRUE / FALSE if the Cell's Row or Column is Hidden.

Public Function IsVisible(MyRange As Range)
IsVisible = ((Rows(MyRange.Row).Hidden = False) And _
(Columns(MyRange.Column).Hidden = False))
End Function
And a formula in a cell

When I hide/unhide the ROW - the formula recalculates automatically without having to do the F2 Enter thing..

But when I hide/unhide the COLUMN, it does not recalculate automatically. I have to do the F2 Enter thing to get it to recalculate.

Even putting Application.Volatile in there doesn't do it.

I'm just curious why it recalculates when the row is hidden/unhidden but not when the column is hidden/unhidden? Is there a hidden event that could be used? I often see posts of people trying to prevent hiding rows.

Hide/Unhide Columns
I have a spreadsheet that has 28 columns for time entries. Typically only the first 12 columns are used, so I would like to hide the remaining 16 columns (which makes the spreadsheet much more user-friendly). It would probably be nearly impossible to teach all of them how to Unhide the remaining columns (and re-Hide), plus I would like to use the full-screen function when employees enter thier times. I would like to use a form control in the column heading so that when the employees 'check' it, it will Unhide and then re-Hide the columns. Any way to do this? Seems like a VB thing to me (out of my league, but would be happy to add one in!).

I am using the code below on my spreadsheet. What is does is hides Row #1 until Row 41 is reached. When 41 is reached Row 1 appears. Unfortunately (for me) I need to alter this code and was wondering if anyone could tell me if it is possible. First the
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)

If Rows(1).Hidden (Target.Row < 41) Then
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Rows(1).Hidden = Target.Row < 41
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End If

End Sub

What I would now like to happen is that Row 1 stays hidden UNTIL Row 16 is OFF Screen. Can that be done? What has happened is that my row 16 contains the heads for my input table. I have now had to set the rows to resize to accommodate data input. If no rows are resized then Row 16 stays visible until I reach row 40. When row 41 is reached then Row 1 appears which contains my headers as well. I hope this makes sense to someone...

SO, IF I can get a code that would keep row one hidden until Row 16 is off screen then it will not matter what rows expand.

Code To Hide/Unhide CommandButtons
I have a file which contains many worksheets with many buttons on them for doing administrative work when updating data. I want to be able to click on a button on my "admin" worksheet to hide all the other buttons on the other worksheets. This is hide the buttons from the view of 'readers' so that they will not be tempted to click on a button to see what it might do. I have tried several different variation of coding, but can not seem to get the "right" object to work with so as to set the code to be xxxx.visible=false. I seen references to Shapes, Shape, Control Toolbox buttons objects, CommandButton, etc.

I would really appreciate if someone could give some pointers on how to designate in VB code, which will lend itself of future updates, the following:

in a toogle button, loop through the series of worksheets making each command button on that sheet set visible = false. Then for the other portion of the toogle repeat the process, but set visible = true.

Hide/Unhide Rows With Checkbox
I've had luck with hiding rows with a checkbox, but I cannot get them to unhide when I uncheck the box.

Here's my scenario - (using Excel 2000) In an estimating spreadsheet I have a print range of A1:N74. What I'd like to do is add a checkbox or button so I can hide and unhide rows based on a null or zero in column range b5:b62. This is for printing purposes, but I can't get a 'beforeprint' event to work either. All I need is box checked and cells hide, box unchecked and cells show (unhide).

Sub CheckBox1_Click()
Dim Rng As Range
Dim MyCell As Range
Set Rng = Range("B5:B62")
For Each MyCell In Rng
If MyCell.Value = "" Then
MyCell.EntireRow.Hidden = True
End If
Next MyCell

Hide / Unhide Column With A Button
Using Excel 2007, I figured out how to insert a Toggle Button and program it to hide or unhide my columns F and G (which show cost data for products we sell) depending on the state of the button.

What I'd like to add to the button is text and functionality as follows:

- Columns F and G are shown, Toggle button IS NOT depressed and the button says "Hide Cost"

- Columns F and G are hidden, Toggle Button IS depressed and the button says "Show Cost"

I figured out how to change the text on the button, but can't figure out how to change it based on the button state. I know there has to be a way to do this.

Toggle Hide/Unhide Rows
I have a macro that works fine with just numbers as a test run when I use it in the desired workbook/worksheets (where the values are returned via Indedx/match functions) there appears to be a small problem. (Below is the relevant post.)


Background is that I load raw data into a monthly account sheet which has the appropriate cost centre codes for allocating expenses.

I then use a vlookup in combination with indirect to place the summary data by costcentre code into annual worksheet.

I then have a summary sheet for printing purposes so I can print out a single month expenses by code to staple to the appropiate monthly costcentre statement. This is done by using Index & match functions looking at the annual summary sheet

What seems to be happening is that the code is sometimes recognizing formulas as a value & therefore showing zero values when I want only values 0 (as I sometimes have minus values).

Also sometimes when I go to unhide the all the rows it also is recognising some formulas as having value.

I am using Xl 2003.

If Range("AC2").Value = 1 Then Rows("13:15").EntireRow.Hidden = False
