VBA/macro To Unhide A Sheet?

I'm having a challenge with a spreadsheet that puzzles me: I'm using this quite simple code to hide one of the spreadsheets (named "Ark2"). It written directly in a module as a subprocedure and there's no more code than this:....

Unhide All Sheets That Do Not Contain Certain Words In Sheet Name
I pulled some code off the internet to “force” users to enable macros by hiding all sheets except a “Welcome Page”. It works great except that it also unhides sheets that are meant to be hidden by when the workbook is opened.

How would I adjust the following code so any sheets/ tabs containing the words “New Project” are not automatically unhidden? Below is the code pertaining to unhiding. I did not paste the code in its entirety as it is fairly long.

Option Explicit

Const WelcomePage = "Macros"

Private Sub ShowAllSheets()
Dim ws As Worksheet

For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
If Not ws.Name = WelcomePage Then ws.Visible = xlSheetVisible
Next ws

Worksheets(WelcomePage).Visible = xlSheetVeryHidden
End Sub

Hide/Unhide Sheet When A Certain Cell Is Changed
I am trying to create some code that will work each time a cell is updated. For simplicity, when cell A1 on Sheet 1 is greater than or equal to 25,000, I want Sheet 2 and 3 to be shown (they will already have been hidden). When A1 on Sheet 1 changes to less that 25,000, I want only Sheet 4 and 5 to be shown. I want to be able to change the number back and forth in A1 so only Sheets 2 and 3 show when A1 is >= 25,000, and only Sheets 3 and 4 to be shown then A1 < 25,000. I can't seem to find how to hide sheets based on a cell changing. I can only find how to permanently hide sheets.

Protect Sheet But Hide/Unhide Columns
I have a speadsheet that has 27 columns for time entries, however employees seldom need to use more than the first 12 columns.

Hide / Unhide Columns On Protected Sheet
When my spreadsheet opens it automatically protects the sheets using the following

With Sheet1
.Protect Password:=SpreadsheetPassword, UserInterfaceOnly:=True
.EnableOutlining = True
End With

and I use the following to hide the column if the toggle button on my form is 'true'. The problem is it gives an error if the sheet is protected. it worksfine without protection.

If ToggleButton1.Value = True Then
Range("column_calories").EntireColumn.Hidden = True
Range("column_calories").EntireColumn.Hidden = False
End If

Hide Or Unhide Worksheets From Cell Values In Sheet 1
I want to set up a few workbooks with 11 sheets. Sheet 1 will in effect be an index, with True or False values in say cells D5:D14. The True/False values will be generated by form control check boxes in some of the workbooks and by IF(TODAY()>xxxx formulas or similar in other workbooks.

I then want to be able to hide or unhide sheets 2-11 based on the True/False values in cells D5:D14 in sheet 1.

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.

If the macro is run a second time it should reveal row 52. A thirs time will reveal row 52 and so on. Finally, when all rows are revealed, the macro should not give a error wanring. Instead, it should say something like "No more rows available"

Macro To Hide/unhide A Row

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

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.

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

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) ?

Macro Pull Data From Each Sheet And Create A Summary Sheet
I need to create a macro that will scan a spreadsheet for the number of sheets and then pull data from the same places on each sheet in order to create a summary sheet. Let me try to explain a little better.

The spreadsheet I'm working with has a separate sheet for each new deal our company makes. Each of these sheets is in the same format - we use a template and fill in the data based on that whenever a new deal emerges. The sheets contain basic info about the deal in the first few rows and columns, then some narratives with dates describing the progress of the deal, and then a list of issues and whether or not they have been resolved. The problem is, each of these sheets contains too much info for a quick, high-level overview with the bosses so they've asked me to create something that will pull the basic info, the most recent narrative, and any unresolved issues from each sheet. This way, each time there's an overview scheduled with the bosses, the macro can be run and it will create a new sheet with data from each sheet in the workbook.

Macro For Copying Rows Of Data In Sheet 1 To Sheet 2
I have a couple of spreadsheets that requires me to copy data from Sheet 1 that matches certain criteria to Sheet 2.

I have tried using posted VB codes that have been written for other people but they dont seem to work (this is probably to do with me not actually knowing what I am doing, as I am not sure what I should be replacing and what I need to be deleting etc out of the pre-written code )

I need to be able to search on column e in Sheet 1 for anything that has just h written in the cell and then copy all the rows that match into Sheet 2. I also would like to ensure that when it is copied it doesnt go in row 2 but maybe 4 or 5 as I have quite allot of headings.

Macro To Copy A Number From One Sheet To Other Sheet
I have a report generated from an application and am looking to format it into a specific format in order to import it into access to be used in a query. Does anyone know how to write a macro which will:-

1. look for a particular word and delete 1 row above it and 16 rows below it, for every time that word appears on the sheet.

2. Look for a specific number (which can be identified by the total number of digits in it and/or the starting series of numbers) from it’s location to another newly inserted column

4.Finally, count the number of rows between the number moved in step 2 and the next similar number and copy the first number in to number of rows = the number of rows between it and the next similar number.

Unhide Row Directly Below
I was wondering if it's possible to unhide a row directly below one that is visible?

I am creating a template for users that allows them to choose which lines (rows) they would like to use. They then hit a button to hide all the other lines they don't wish to use.

For each row that is visible I then need the row directly below it to become visible so that the user can enter associated information.

I'm stumped on how to do it. I have the user entering "a" in column A for any row they wish to keep - but I'm not sure how to incorporate this into unhiding the row below (or if I'm on the wrong track with my thinking).

Cannot Unhide Columns In A Worksheet
The workbook contains 5 worksheets, 4 of which will unhidden just fine; the remaining worksheet ("AnnualBudget" refuses to unhide columns AD to IV. Of course, this is the sheet that contains data in those hidden cells and I cannot get to the data. The sheet is unprotected and all freeze panes removed.

I have copied this sheet to a new sheet in the same workbook:

If I copy only formulas and number formats, the new sheet has all columns unhidden. If I copy formats, I have the same issue with the new worksheet. It’s like these columns are forever locked from view.

FYI I am using Excel 2007 with a 2003 compatability worksheet

Unhide Worksheet With Same Label Name
I have a workbook with quite a few worksheets, along with a summary page. The summary page has a list of names of all the worksheets in the workbook. I am still learning to use Macro. So far, I have created buttons to hide the individual worksheets (each component is on a worksheet by itself). But I can't figure out how to unhide a specific worksheet from a group of worksheets without creating just as many macros calling specific worksheet names. I don't really want to create 100s of little macros. I am sure there is a better way out there.

Here is a concept of the workbook:

On the summary page, the user supposed to click on a label ("T1000" for example), and this will unhide a worksheet with the same name (T1000). There are hundreds of these worksheets, how does it find

This is my idea of how the function supposed to work.

First determine the label text as a string.
Then locate the worksheet with the name equals to the string
then set visibility = true.
