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.

Hide Rows Based Over Multiple Columns

Jan 29, 2013

a code that will search each cell across 4 columns and hide the row only if all cells are blank. The macro should search columns "b", "c", "e", and "f" to display all rows where at least one of the cells has a value.


Col.B Col.C Col.D Col.E Col.F
1. 123 xxxxx 150
2. 56 xxxxx 50
3. (blank) (blank) xxxxx (blank) (blank)

Mar 19, 2014

Automatically Hide/Unhide Columns Based On Cell Text

Jan 10, 2009

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Column <> 13 Then Exit Sub
If InStr(Target.Value, "Other (specify in next column)") Then
Columns("N").Hidden = False
ElseIf WorksheetFunction. CountIf(Columns("M"), "Other (specify in next column)") = 0 Then
Columns("N").Hidden = True
End If
End Sub

but I have a lot of columns that I need to perform as above and I have put the code together as below

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
On Error Resume Next

If Target.Column = 13 And InStr(Target.Value, "Other (specify in next column)") Then
Columns("N").Hidden = False
ElseIf WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Columns("M"), "Other (specify in next column)") = 0 Then.................

Using the above code, when I selected more than one cell anywhere in my workbook and pressed delete I was bugging out with a runtime error 13 message. You can see from the above code that I inserted "On Error Resume Next" - this got rid of the runtime error 13 message, but now when I select more than one cell and press delete, hidden columns are incorrectly revealed in my worksheet. how I can extend the working code at the top of this posting so that it works for a number of different columns in my Worksheet i.e. without the runtime error 13 occurring and without columns being incorrectly revealed.

Hide Rows With Variable Text Based On Dropdown Selection

Jun 11, 2014

I have a spreadsheet which contains our fleet information covering many vehicles in one list. The teams for these vehicles are listed in Column A. What I would like to have is:

A dropdown box to pick from All, or the various teams in A1To hide every row that doesn't match the selection of A1To reveal every row that contains the selection for A1 at any point in column A. e.g: "*Dog Team*"

This is because something might be listed as "Moved from Dog Team" or "Dog Team, temporarily on loan", or "Dog Team V66.m"

I have taken a small sample of the data I will be working from and made a very simple drop down box which displays the pages of information for the vehicles by hiding/unhiding blocks of columns:


Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "$A$2" Then
If Range("A2") = "MOT/Service" Then
ActiveSheet.Columns("A:P").EntireColumn.Hidden = False
ActiveSheet.Columns("Q:CE").EntireColumn.Hidden = True
ElseIf Range("A2") = "Contact Details" Then


But because there is also filters on the sheet, meaning the positions of the entries based on rows can change, I need it to search for the "*xyzzy*" method, but am unsure how to do this! While just using the Filters will work, due to some human limitations I have been asked to have a specific drop down box in a very specific location with instructions next to it.

Excel Text Search Through Different Types Of Text And Action Based On Text

Oct 14, 2008

1. Search an excel sheet "column" for a particular type of text and insert values based on that text (if found) in another column.

e.g I have column A1 to A10 with different types of text. I would like to search for the keyword "Risk is high" OR "Risk=High" for each cell in the column and insert a "1" if found beside it's corresponding "B" column. If not found, I would like to insert a "0".

So, if the text "Risk is high" OR "Risk=High" was only found in A6, I would like B6 to be "1". Rest of the values in the B column would be "0's", since the text was not found in any of the other cells.

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 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.

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).

Search Columns And Paste Rows

Feb 26, 2009

I have an excel spreadsheet with:
2 sheets,Sheet1 and Sheet2
4 columns (A,B,C,D)
100,000s of rows.

I need to search 3 columns, B,C and D, for particular values.
Column B needs to be = 0
Columns C and D need to be "<=0.1"

When all three criteria in the row are matched I need the value from column A in that row to be pasted to Sheet2 and then for the macro to continue searching the rows.

I have attached an extract of the data as the files size is too large to upload.

Search Cell For Text String And Paste Text In Based On Finding?

Jun 29, 2014

I need to create a macro to do the following:

Search the activecell for a text string (a), and then either paste in text string (b) at the end of the cell if (a) is found, or text string (c) if (a) is not found.

For example, if the activecell has "AA/" in it, I want the cell to become "AA/01" (pasting in "01" at the end), and if the cell has just "AA" in it, I want it to still become "AA/01" (pasting "/01" at the end). The macro will be linked to a commandbutton.

VBA To Hide Columns Based On Formula

Sep 28, 2011

On my 'Report' worksheet in cells I1 to Z1 the formula returns "" if there's no data in that month or "1" to "18" depending on which month it is. e.g. if it's a 12 month accounting period then 6 of the columns will have no data in them and will have "" in row 1, the other columns will return 1 - 12 in row 1; if it's a 15 month accounting period then 3 of the columns will have no data in them and "" in row 1 and the other columns will return 1 - 15.

The VBA code below is part of a longer macro on my 'Data' worksheet. The rest of the code works fine and I just wanted to add this bit to hide the blank columns on the 'Report' page.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

With Sheets("Report")
Dim i As Integer
If Intersect(Target, Range("I1:Z1")) Is Nothing Then
For i = 9 To 26

Compare And Search Columns For Text?

Apr 14, 2009

I recently posted a similar thread which was very well supported but I couldnít get a solution because my requirements were not clear enough. I would like to try again with a slightly easier and clearer requirement.

I would like a spreadsheet that compares and searches columns for text and returns true if a duplicate is found.

It is similar to a lottery checker except the lines being checked could be a string instead of a single character.

I have attached a spreadsheet which helps explain what Iím trying to achieve.

Basically, a user can sequentially enter a single character to cells F1:F5. These values are then compared to columns A:C. If one of the columns contain the values in column F then return true to G1.

OR :

Ideally I would prefer a drop down with dates and the user could select a forward date and all the columns with dates up to that would appear. This would mean they could look as far our as required and all unwanted data would be hidden.
