How To Have Open Hidden Sheet / Hide On Closing

Feb 24, 2014

I've got this function where you can select from a list of names, and when you press go it unhides the sheet and goes to it, problem with that was after closing the sheet it was no longer hidden. So now, I have


So when you press go, it unhides the sheet, goes to it, and hides it again, but then the sheet is hidden it pushes the user back to the page they was on, so it would appear you can't have a hidden sheet open.

Is there a way for excel to determine when the sheet has been closed, to be able to hide it when the user navigates away?

VBA To Hide Sheet In Workbook And Copying Hidden Sheet

Dec 12, 2013

I have a userform which clones the latest sheet and produces copy of it on the next sheet. The first sheet they will be cloning is the sheet called 'template', I however want this to be hidden since I do not want anybody to modify a sheet which basically serves purpose of a template. And once cloned, it is no longer needed.

On the click of the command button, the macro will create sheet1 taking the info from sheet named 'Template' in the same workbook . And now on the next click of the command button, Sheet 2 is created taking the info from sheet1 and Sheet 3 is created taking the info from Sheet 2 and so on. Here is what I currently have, so how can i modify it in order for my scnerio to work?

To select the last sheet in the workbook


To create new sheet


Sheets(Sheets.Count).Copy After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)Sheets(Sheets.Count).Name = MyEvent & " " & MySCN & "(" & ThisWorkbook.Sheets.Count - 2 & ")"

Open Hidden Sheet With Clicking Button?

Aug 23, 2013

I have a workbook including several sheets.

I'd like to hide all worksheets and in the excel there is only one visible sheet which is Navigation Page. I want to add several buttons on this sheet and each button will be clicked to call the other sheets.

For example, there is a sheet called Sales_Approval_Form and I'd like to add a button on navigation page called Sales Approval Form and when the user clicks the button the sheet will be open for entering data.

Hide One Sheet And Open Another

May 8, 2014

I have been reviewing various methods of doing this and I had one that worked and for some reason it has now stoped?

The Code is:

Sheets("Main Dshbd").Visible = True
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Visible = False

This is activated by using a button on the BCDashbd Page. I want it to hide the BCDashboard sheet and Unhide the Main DshBd Sheet. Currently it opens the Main Dshbd sheet but does not hide the BCDshboard Sheet?

What have I missed?

Visible Sheets To Be Hidden With The Exception Of The Sheet Called "open". Then Is Saves The File

Sep 9, 2008

i am using the macro below to get excel to hide all sheets but the one called "open"...

Sub savemini()

ActiveWorkbook.Unprotect "letmein"

  For Each sh In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
       If Not sh.Name = "open" Then sh.Visible = xlVeryHidden
   Next sh

End Sub 

So the workbook is protected with the password "letmein", and the VB code above in theory should unlock the workbook, allowing all visible sheets to be hidden with the exception of the sheet called "open". Then is saves the file.

Now heres the odd bit... it works for certain people, but not for others. I have made sure those it wont work for are not doing anything weird and they are not.

The workbook i am using has a code that only opens certain sheets for certain users. I as a master user have access to all sheets. I can go into the users sheets and click the button that activates the macro above myself and it works fine, but for some users it wont work.

Closing A Workbook That Is Open Via VBA

Jul 2, 2008

Well I seem to be having an issue in a form i created. What happens is that when the user clicks a button it saves a worksheet of workbook as its own file, problem is that it will actually open the new worksheet as a workbook when I really just want it to save without opening a new instance. Here is the code

Dim IntWirefilename As String
IntWirefilename = "International Wires Database"
Worksheets("Intwires").SaveAs FileName:="File Path" & IntWirefilename & (".xls")
Workbooks("File PathInternational Wires Database.xls").Close
I think the problem lies in the last line or it could be from the select and copy part.

I do not want it to open a new file after it saves it. Also can anyone help create a part that will bypass the overwrite existing file thing so that this file will just continuously save as the same file name rather than prompting the user constantly to Overwrite the file.

Prevent Closing Of One Workbook When Two Are Open

Sep 23, 2009

I'm trying to prevent a user from closing a perticular workbook.

Here is some important factors.

Workbook(A) = "LA-01-04-10" This is only one of 52 other but only one is open at a time.

Workbook(B) = "LA.xls" Always the same name and is always opened when one of the workbooks(A) above it opened.

When workbook (A) is opened it will then open another workbook (B) at that time the window is hidden workbook(B) So the user can only see workbook (A) I have a button on workbook(A) that unhides the window to show workbook(B) After the user completes his work in Workbook (B) they need to click another button that sorts the list and returns them to workbook(A) (Which also hides the window for workbook(B).

The problem is I have users that are trying to close workbook(B) instead of pressing the sort list button. So what I want is to prevent the user from closing workbook(B) by displaying a msgbox saying they need to press the button.

Ive tried several approches to this but I'm still having problems. The below script works if workbook(B) is active or shown. The message is displayed and the workbook will not close. However if the user is in workbook (A) and trys to close the message is displayed and both workbooks close like they are suppose to. But why is the message displayed?

One other note I should say is that not only does workbook(A)Open workbook (B) but it also closes it. Which may be why I'm having problems?

I have also included both workbooks so you can see all the code.

I have this code in Thisworkbook of workbook(B)

Hide Workbook Opening/closing Operation On The Screen

Jul 6, 2007

I am running a script that populates about 70 or so workbooks based on information from the database. Naturally this script is quite slow but what seems to take the most time is opening and closing workbooks. Is there a way to "hide" the workbook opening/closing operation on the screen? I have tried using the

Application. ScreenUpdating = False

this sped the code up but you still see the workbooks opening on the screen.

Open The Hidden Worksheet When Clicked

May 2, 2006

1) I cannot figure out how to write VBA so the "Show Results" button will open the hidden worksheet when clicked.

2) When I use the userform to add new info, it does save to the worksheet, but when I cose the userform and try to open the spreadsheet, I get the following message, "Userform is already opened. Reopening will cause any changes to be disguarded". If I answer yes, I lose my changes, if I answer no, the changes are saved. I want this message to go away and data from the userform to automatically be added to the spreadsheet.

3) I want to make sure the "Account Number" field has a 9 digit number in it before it can be saved. If there is not a 9 digit number I would like an error message saying "Please enter a 9 digit account number" as a pop up.

4) I want to make sure both the "Account Number" and the "Assignment" fields have been populated before the data can be saved.

Automatically Save Sheet To New Workbook When Closing

Jun 30, 2008

I am in the process of setting up an Excel invoice. So far I have managed to implement the following:

On open: Incrementing invoice number
Cells cleared ready for next use

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Sheets("Sales Invoice").Range("H2").Value = Sheets("Sales Invoice").Range("H2").Value + 1 .....................

There is only one task left I need to automate. On closing the document I would like a copy to be saved in a specific folder and be given the file name of a cell (B9). Obviously I would not want the 'saved copy' to retain the Incrementing invoice number or the clear cells function. Even if the invoice copy was exported as a flat jpeg that would be fine. I am using Office Exce 2003 (Sp2) - I have attached my invoice should anyone be kind enough to take a look.
