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.
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?
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.
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.
I use all of column A, B, and C, but i only use D1 to H44 other than that. Is it possible to hide everything to the right of Column I and below D44:H44, but leave the scroll area for columns A B C able to scroll to the bottom?
I have a macro that works great to hide rows with zeros in a specific column on one sheet. It is below:
Sub Hide_Rows() Dim i As Integer ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:="Yourpassword" Application. ScreenUpdating = False Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual For i = 9 To 408 If Sheets("Tasks and times"). Range("H" & i).Value = 0 Then Rows(i & ":" & i).EntireRow.Hidden = True End If Next i Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic Application.ScreenUpdating = True ActiveSheet.Protect Password:="Yourpassword" End Sub
My problem is that now I want to adapt it to also hide columns on another sheet in the same workbook (named OBS). This is because in the first sheet rows 9 through 408 are used for data but that range is divided into 25 sets of 16 rows. Each set corresponds to a column on the other sheet starting at column C. I would like the corresponding column to hide when the first row of each set (i.e. rows 9, 25, 41, etc.) are hidden.
I have a project that needs to be done today. What I'm trying to do is hide an area of a worksheet using a button click, then display that area when the button is clicked again. This area is approximately the lower right quadrant of the worksheet, so it shares column and row information with other data that must remain visible. Is there any way to do this?
Alternatively, I was thinking about making a duplicate of the worksheet, but omitting the area I want to hide on the duplicate sheet. The button would then hide and unhide the two worksheets, hopefully making it have the same effect as hiding or unhiding just that area. If I do this, I would need to maintain the exact same data in the visible area of the two sheets.
I have a pivot table full of data that needs a macro/vba/something to loop through it and hide all rows that have no fill color. The table had 210 rows so I want a quick way of hiding the irrelevant ones (only the ones filled in green or red), and so all the ones with no fill need to be hidden. Something like a button to hide/unhode would be ideal.
I would love to be able to limit the number of rows in a specific sheet so that I can quickly carry formulas to the bottom of a worksheet without carrying them to row 1,048,576. I'm aware of options to hide rows and/or to limit the scrolling with the "view code" option on the worksheet tab; however, I'm mainly worried about worksheet performance. When I carry a formula down, I don't want to see a spinning blue circle run for minutes at a time, and I'm hoping to avoid the same spinning circle when I undo my formula. Is there any way to actually limit the number of rows, or is there any other limitation I could put in that would increase worksheet performance?
I created a macro that analyzes some datasets and according to different parameters it puts an X at the side of every cell that goes out of parameters. These Xs are all in columns named the same way for it to be easier to find. What I want to do is to write some macro that will hide every row where the data did not go out of parameters to be able to easily see where it did. In the following example it would need to hide the second row since there are no Xs in that row. One of the problems I'm having is that the amount of columns and rows is variable.
Data Data Functional Upset Data Data Functional Upset
# # X # #
Below is the piece of code that I created to try to do this (G has the value for the amount of rows). I think it is working but it is either taking too long since it has to sometimes go through over 20k lines as much times as it needs to to cover all the rows that contain Xs or its getting stuck for some reason.
Code: Worksheets(2).Range("I3:I" & G).EntireRow.Hidden = True K = 0 Do Until Worksheets(2).Range("I1").Offset(0, K) = "" If Worksheets(2).Range("I1").Offset(0, K) = "Functional Upset" Then
if I can gray out the unused columns. I am creating a template that use only column A to J. I don't want user to be able to see or scroll to the unused columns. Is there any command in the setup that can gray out the unused columns? or maybe VBA codes?
Is there a way in Excel 2010 that the administrator of a excel document can not only hide some columns but lock the columns by some kind of password so it remains hidden? I know user can hide/unhide columns but can some columns be hiddens and locked with passwords?
Secondly can formulas like IF and vlookups statements be hidden and locked with some kind of password?
In maybe via VBA or by some other means, is this possible?
The end user should only be able to type and select certain cells only.
I have some if statements for 300+ employees. Some rows are left blank b/c a specific type of employee didn't meet the if statement criteria...which is what I wanted. Now how can I get rid of those blank rows (that actually do contain formulas but are returnnig a "" value) to have all of the employees in a "nice" grouping?
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.
trying to create a button to hide unsed rows, can anyone help? basically the sample below is what i want to do but it hides all the rows listed.. i want it to hide only unused rows in the rows selected if yes is selected and unhide them when no is selected...
wannahide = MsgBox("hide rows", vbYesNo) If wannahide = vbYes Then Rows("5:28").Hidden = True Else Rows("5:28").Hidden = False End If
I have two worksheets (Sheet1 and Sheet2). Based on meeting a condition on Sheet1 AND Sheet2, I'd like to use macros to automatically hide rows on Sheet2.
Sheet1 sample: Type Selection
The conditions are: If on Sheet1, a Type has the Selection "Include", then any rows on Sheet2 which have that same Type are shown (ie. not hidden).
If on Sheet1, a Type has the Selection "Exclude",then any rows on Sheet2 which have that same Type are hidden.
So in the example tables above, if ONLY Type A = Include, then on Sheet2, the rows for Sample URL1 and Sample URL2 are shown, and the others are hidden.
Also in the example tables above, if Type A = Include AND Type B = Include (and all other Types are Exclude), then on Sheet2, the rows for Sample URL1, Sample URL2 AND Sample URL3 are shown, and the others are hidden.
I'm fine with the concept of If... And... on the same worksheet, it's trying to get it to look at two separate worksheets I'm struggling with!!
I have a workbook with two worksheets, Sheet1 and Sheet 2. Based on the data entered in the 2nd column on Sheet1, I'd like a macro which hides rows for Events which do not meet the criteria entered on Sheet1.
So in the example below, on Sheet2, I only want to see rows where the Country=Scotland, AND the Location=Glasgow, AND the Start Date is greater than (or equal) the Start Date on Sheet1.
Sample of Sheet1 Country Scotland
Start Date (dd/mm/yyyy) 30/04/2013
So in this scenario, only the FIRST row meets the 3 criteria (Scotland, Glasgow, date after 30th April), thus all the other rows should be hidden.
Is there a macro that will format unused rows or with no value in a given range. I have a sheet that I am using that some of the date is either added or deleted and would like to have a macro to do grey out unused rows. I am using this with a form control.
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.
I am using a pivot table in excel 2010. 15 columns (fixed) and plenty of dive downs for rows.
I am trying to 'hide' all of the rows containing values less than 10. If it is easier we can start with hiding values of zero and go from there.
It is key to hide the rows as within the dive downs the rows within the pivot are to many to sort through. If there is a way to do this using the grand total columns for each row that would work as well. Just to be clear I need to hide the entire row not just report the empty cells as zeros. If any further detail is needed feel free to ask.
For example: If value of column O "Grand Total" = 0 'hide rows with value 0' ELSE 'display rows with value greater than 0'
I have a long grocery order list and only choose about 100 items out of 1000. I would like to send it to the store with only the items I need. There are several category headings throughout the list which I would like to keep...like Produce, Meats, etc. The list total dollar amount is automatically updated as I enter the amount of the items I need. I just have a lot of unused items (10) pages worth.
The first code hides everything just fine based on the date in A1. When I change it to the second code to delete instead of hide it is leaving a bunch of rows that the 1st code hides. Both codes have the same search criteria.
Code: For Each cell In Range("B8:B5000") If cell.Value Range("A1").Value Then cell.EntireRow.Hidden = True Next cell
Code: For Each cell In Range("B8:B5000") If cell.Value Range("A1").Value Then cell.EntireRow.Delete Next cell
Is there a faster method than this code? it slows way down when the range is expanded b/c it loops through every cell.
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal target As Range) If target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub Set Rng = Range("A1:GA400") clrind = 42 If Not Intersect(target, Rng) Is Nothing Then For Each cell In Rng If cell.Interior.ColorIndex = clrind Then cell.Interior.Pattern = xlNone Next cell End If End Sub
