Hide All Unused Rows And Columns

Jun 28, 2007

Is there a simple way to hide rows and columns? A lady in my office just asked me how to make only Columns A to J visible and only show 100 rows. She doesn't want the rest of the spreadsheet to show. I know how to manually hide columns and rows but it takes a while to drag down and select 64000 rows so I thoguht I would ask the question:

Does Excel have a feature that will automatically hide all unused rows and columns or is there a simple VBA code to do this?

Hiding Unused Columns And Rows Slows Down Excel?

Mar 16, 2013

I like the look of when only the used columns and rows are shown. I like to hide all unused columns and rows, and have the background and a minimalist spreadsheet.

HOWEVER, is it just me, or does Excel move a lot slower when thousands of rows and columns are hidden? Particularly, opening files seems to be slower. I'd love to delete them entirely from existence, so Excel only has a few rows and columns to work with, but that doesn't seem to be an option.

Removing/Greying Out Unused/unwanted Columns & Rows

Jun 21, 2006

Need to find out how I can restrict a worksheet to show only the columns and rows that I want. For example, I want to show columns A to H, and rows 1 to 25, and nothing else - I don't want there to be a column G, or a row 26, just blank grey space. I know it's possible, because I've seen it done : D . But the closest I can get to is: View > Page Break Preview, which isn't quite what I'm after.

To Delete My Unused Rows

Sep 24, 2003

Apparently Excel can't delete unused rows, nor can it specify the sheet to be exactly X by Y large. My problem comes in any time I fill down a column of data by selecting the column header (A for example) and selecting fill down, rather than selecting the exact range of cels I need the formula in (which might be several thousand...) Excel winds up taking my sheet that was, let's say, 1000 rows long and filling down until now it's many many many thousands of rows long, with "error" fills in most of the rows. This now means that any kind of sorting, resizing of rows, etc. takes absolutely forever because it's dealing with 5 or 10 times more rows than I am actually using. Even clearing the contents of all the extra cels does not help. I can't in any way seem to get rid of these extra rows.

Removal Of Unused Rows (variable Range)

Oct 27, 2006

I have a spreadsheet ranging from A1 to AH602 Column AH contains row totals and Row 602 contains colunm totals. I am importing a CVS file starting at cell A4 - the number of rows contained in the import varies drastically. I would like to build a macro that would remove all the unused rows. I have tried to record a macro that would do this but the number of rows always ends up static and not variable.

What I'm doing below is Using an END+HOME to take me to the furthest point in the active range then 3 UP ARROWS to get to the desired row then an END+LEFT ARROW followed by END+UP ARROW and 2 DOWN ARROWS to get to the starting cell in Column A. At that point I use a SHIFT+END+DOWN ARROW to capture the range of Rows I need to delete.

Sub Macro1()
ActiveCell.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Select
Range("AH599").Select
Selection.End(xlToLeft).Select
Selection.End(xlUp).Select
Range("A101").Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
Selection.EntireRow.Delete
End Sub

This works except that the starting cell remains the static.

Hide Rows With 0 In X Columns

Jul 19, 2007

I have a workbook comprising several worksheets and on each of those worksheets I want to hide the rows where there is a zero in each of three specific columns on any row. If there is an entry that is more than zero in any one or more of those columns then the row should not be hidden.

In the attached example I would want to hide rows 4, 8, 12, 18 and 19 as there was a zero in each of the columns C, E and F. I would not want to hide the other rows as they have a figure that does not equal zero in at least one of the columns C, E or F in the row.

a macro for making it work on just one sheet - I can write the code to make it work for each of the worksheets in the book.

Hide Columns And Rows If Total Is Zero?

Dec 15, 2011

I have a worksheet with a large amount of data, but a lot of cells are zero (because the content of the cells is calculated). I would want to be able to build a macro which can hide all the columns whose total is zero, and also all the rows whose total is zero. The amount of columns and rows will be variable, because i expect to keep adding information continuously. The row with the totals to evaluate is 4, and the column with the totals to evaluate is H. (I cannot make a filter for this one, because there's already one some rows upwards).

Hide Rows Based On Text Search In Three Columns?

Mar 22, 2013

I am working on a time management sheet for my company. I need to be able to click a button and have the file search 3 columns for a persons initials and then hide all the rows where the initials are not in at least one of the three columns. I seem to have no problem getting it to work for one column at a time, but as soon as I try to search more than one it all falls apart.

I will also need to create an unhide all button to reset the sheet after the macro has been run.

I have attached a sample of the sheet below. Each project needs to have 3 rows to show the schedule and budget broken down by each team member.

VBA Macro To Filter Rows By Cell Value & Hide Blank Columns

Oct 1, 2008

i have created a spreadsheet to simplify our work flow, I am stuck on what is probably the easiest of the commands.

basically have rows dedicated to specific codes and the colums represent values relating to each code, all codes have a different set of values, the attached example only has a few variables but the actual worksheet will have several hundred.

the idea is the user will input the code they wish to get details on in A2 and then press the command button and it will then show (as per the after sheet in the attachment) just the relevant information for that code, so filter the code in column A and hide the columns which hold no value.

where i am getting stuck is I am not sure the best way to proceed, is it best to create the macro button to do the filter and hide or is there a better way using vlookup and a pop up window asking for the relevantcode to be inputted to to retrive the information, again understand there will be hundreds of colums and hundreds of rows and the values may be 20 or 30 colums apart for some of the Codes so this simplification is really saving the user a lot of time.

Hide Blank Rows Based On Values In Other Rows

Nov 3, 2006

I have a worksheet used for inventory. In Column A is the quantity (to be entered manually). In Column B is the product description. In Column C is the price of the product, and Column D the total price (column C price x the quantity entered in Column A). At the bottom of the worksheet is a grand total. Also, Column B (products) is grouped into subheadings by the supplier each product came from (for example, row 6 has the title PPG, and then rows 7-137 list every product from PPG).

The calculations in this worksheet work fine. What I am trying to do is, using a macro once all of the appropriate quantities are entered in column A, automatically hide every row of product that does not have a quantity. The tricky part is, if no products under a given supplier subheader are entered, the subheader also hides, and if a quantity is entered, that subheader shows. For example, if I have no quantities under any products for PPG, then the PPG subheader hides, but if just one quantity is added, PPG shows. Also, this list will be constantly updated, new products will be put in and taken out all of the time, so I cannot base the macro on a specific number of rows.

Hiding Unused Worksheet Space

May 2, 2007

I've just finished my project (with loads of help from you guys) and wondered if there was any way of making it look less like the spreadsheet it is when it's opened.

I've removed everything I can and I'm left with a vertical scroll bar (needed) and the top menu bar (not needed).

Is that about it or can I get rid of that, and maybe size the window accordingly when the workbook is opened (so the dead space on the right is not seen) and perhaps stop the vertical scrolling at the bottom of the sheet so it doesn't scroll down to 65555 and the dead space under the sheet isn't seen.

Close An Unused Workbook Automatically After A Specific Time

Apr 19, 2007

I have got a spreadsheet which is being used as a database. I would like the spreadsheet to close automatically if the user has not "touched" it for a specific amount of time (say 1hr).

2 scenarios:

a/ The user is working in Excel but with another workbook.
b/ The user has the excel spreadsheet open but is working with another application, say Word

I experimented with Workbook_WindowDeactivate but I do not know how to stop the process if the Workbook is reactivated (Maybe a DO ...LOOP calling a function returning a True/False statement on the event Workbook_WindowActivate !!). My way of thinking is the following

Workbook is deactivated
Start a timer
If the workbook is not reactivated with 1hr, save and close (no user intervention wanted)
Else stop timer
Repeat process
