Value Appears Hide The Row It Appears In

Nov 12, 2007

Is there a way to get Excel to look down a column for a particular value and where that value appears hide the row it appears in?

We have a series of reports which all have the same template, however we don't want some customers to be able to see some of the products as these are own-label products for which aren't offered to everyone.

I'd like to add this as a macro to a combo-box so that the user can view a report for their customer and then send a copy to the customer with the knowledge they won't see anything we don't want them to...

Copy Cell Content Into Next Available Blank Cell In Sheet2?

Nov 26, 2013

I have 2 worksheets, let's call them "Sheet1" and "sheet2".

Sheet 1 has 2 columns (A, and B)

Ie. "Sheet1:"

Col A, Col B

Green Yes
Orange Yes

For each entry in Column "B" that has a "Yes" value, I need to copy the color value in column "A" into the next available empty cell in "Sheet2" in column A.


Col A, Col B

Red 3
Blue 5
Yellow 6

Final Result:

Col A, Col B

Red 3
Blue 5
Yellow 6

how to do this particular challenge? For Sheet2, I think I'll need a function to determine the first available blank cell in column A.

MIN Appears As 0 With Blank Cells

Feb 15, 2007

I am trying to use a MIN() function on a row of numbers; the row is not completely full (some days data was not recorded) and when I have a blank cell, the result in the MIN() frame is 0.0. This is unless of course I have a negative number (which I don't, but for the sake of argument)

This is my current function:

It works like:
Take every 5th column starting at the second.
Try to ignore any cell that contains 0. (This I am trying to get to filter out the empty cells; I have tried ISBLANK(), ISNUMBER() and still get nothing)
Then return the cell to the MIN() function.

That is the long winded thing of it all, basically it can be summarized as this:

I have also tried some other code which I was told did the same thing essentially (which it does) but is shorter and nicer:

Which will check for the proper heading on each Column.

These functions work fine with AVERAGE/MAX as far as I can tell, just not with MIN().

As a side note, none of the cells leading up to this function contain "0".

0 Appears For Linking Blank Cells

May 25, 2008

I am linking several cells in Sheet1 to other sheets throughout the workbook. Sheets2-10 to be exact. The problem is when no data is in a given cell in Sheet1 a '0' shows up on the linked cell in Sheet2-10. The problem is 0 can be a correct response sometimes and if 0 is always to show up someone is going to misunderstand the task.

I just want to stop blank entries from being linked over as 0. I have a ton of cells being linked and don't want to do conditional formatting on each individual cell. Is their any easy way to stop this?

Prevent The User From Saving The Data Input From The User Form If Any Of Those Three Fields Is Left Blank

Feb 9, 2010

I have a user form that has a combo box "City" two text boxes one called "Flight" and the other "Date". What I'm trying to do is to prevent the user from saving the data input from the user form if any of those three fields is left blank. The code that I have so far checks all of the required fields, if any are left blank a message notifys which field(s) is left blank and return the focus back to that field. But the rest of code also fires.

What I really need is either to stop the code if any fields are blank and return the focus back to the blank field, the user completes the field(s) and clicks the save again, or better yet, pause the code until all the required fields are completed and then complete the save. (There is actually another 200+ lines of code in this sub, but I deleted it to keep the post a little shorter.)

Hide Rows In Table If Cell Is Blank?

Mar 9, 2014

I'm trying to create a table that adjusts dynamically to how many cells in a row have text in them. In other words, when a cell is left blank, the entire row should not appear in the table.

I've tried the following code:

Sub test()
Dim i As Integer
Dim nrrows As Integer


When I run this code, it hides all rows, even the ones that aren't blank. why this might happen and how I can make it work?

Hide Columns If Cell In Specific Row Is Blank

Jan 19, 2007

I have a row in a table from columns C to CZ. All the cells in the row contain a formula, between 1 and 204 cells in the row will have a value (i.e. will not be blank).

The cells with a value will start at column C and may or may not have a blank cell before no more values and blank cells to the end (Col GZ).


C D E F G H I J K >..........................GZ

23 34 67 74 2 34 6 2 56 all blank ("") to end


C D E F G H I J K >..........................GZ

23 34 67 "" "" 34 6 all blank ("") to end

I need to hide the entire columns when the cells in this row are blank but NOT if the blank cell has valued cells after it (i.e. do not hide columns F and G in the second example.

I can do this by looping back from col GZ and hiding the columns one at a time, which is very slow. I am stuck on the code to select all the relavent columns and hide together.

Conditional Format Formula: Allow The User To Blank Out The Cell Within The Year

Sep 26, 2009

i have a set of conditional formatting set up for my workbook, the first is simply that if the result is false the cell is blank(white text,white background). the second if positive result,keeps the text black till 1 year has passed. the problem is the third, i.m trying to allow the user to blank out the cell within the year (white text,white background)if certain criteria are met. the idea is that they change the entry in cell D from T to TX or from M to MX and the formula pick this up, but i keep getting a error saying "your formula contains an error", the formula im using is, =if(or($D5="tx","mx")) then i set the format to (white text,white background). its probably really simple but i,ve been trying to solve this now for around 8 hours and i.m stuck

Hide Multiple Rows Based On Cell Value Being Blank

Feb 20, 2013

I have a worksheet that contains 15 instances of a repeated table over 700 rows. Each table is 45 rows in size and is housed in between the natural page breaks in the spreadsheet.

These tables are populated from data form another worksheet but may not all be used (8 out of the 15 may be used but will always start from table 1 and there will be no missed tables).

In the very top right of the table is a cell value that is only displayed if the table is in use, so will be blank if not used.

Code that will hide multiple rows (45) based on a cell value being blank.

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.

Read Cell Content & ADD Content + Font Properties *SOLVE

Sep 12, 2007

I use this to read cell content, add some text/characters (ie. [ and ]) and change the properties of the complete cell

Worksheets("DVD Lijssie").Activate
If ActiveCell.Value 0 Then ' Change all in to ... ... ...
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = ActiveCell.Value & " " & "]" & " " & "["
With ActiveCell.Font
.Name = "Arial Narrow"
.Size = 8
.ColorIndex = 16
End With
End If
End Sub
HOW can I change this vba-code so it leave's the content of the cell like it is and add some content with the use of let's say TexBox1 and ONLY use different font properties for the newely added content?

Change Content Of One Cell Based On Content Of Another

Apr 18, 2014

Formula/macro/etc that would enable me to have content of a cell changed based on the content of another cell in the same row.

Example: cell in column D says "PSA" - so I would need the cell in column H for that same row to read "Radio"

I would need an entire sheet scanned to review for these occurrences and make the appropriate changes. I also would need the formula to be inclusive enough to scan for variations in column D cell content (PSA 1, PSA 2, etc).

Hide Sheets By Report User?

Jun 18, 2014

I developed some pivot table reports and macro'd out pdf'ing them for the users but now management want the users to be able to manipulate the data themselves !! The file is 31 sheets and I'm figuring they'll only want to see the sheets that are relevant to them so is there a way to macro it out?? Perhaps when the file opens it asks, "Who do you want to see?" Jack? Joe? or Rudy?, Month or YTD, or Both? or Everything? and it will hide the sheets that are not selected. The words "month" and "YTD" is in Cell "N1" and the individuals names are in Cell "M1".

Hide Macro List From User

Jan 23, 2008

Macros that are active in a workbook can typically be viewed by going to Tools->macro->macros. Once there anyone can see all the macros being used in the workbook.

Is there anyway to prevent the user from viewing the macros, actually I don't mind the names being displayed, but I don't want some of the macros to be launchable on demand by the user.

I have some macros stored that have the passwords to unlock the worksheets. I suppose

I can restructure the macros to possibly avoid this security issue if nothing else is available.

Hide Columns Based On A User Entry

Mar 28, 2009

Is there a way of a user can add a number in a cell and this would hide a different amount of columns.

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.

Hide Sheets Based On User Using VB In 2007

Does this code for not work in 2007? Oh and I am refering to Post #10 on there with the attachment that will hide different sheets depending on which user is getting on the file.

Hide/unhide User Selected Rows

May 15, 2007

I'm trying to create a macro that allows users to hide or unhide selected rows, either via toggle or userform. The macro I have looks like this, but for some reason it doesn't hide the rows:

Sub Hide_Range()
Dim UserRange As Range
DefaultRange = Selection.Address
Set UserRange = Application.InputBox _
(Prompt:="Select Range to Hide:", _
Title:="Hide Range", _
Default:=DefaultRange, _
Selection.EntireRow.Hidden = True
End Sub

what's wrong with my code and how I can further develop it to let the user decide whether to hide or unhide the selected rows?

How To Hide Tabs And Make Them Appear After Specific User Input

Jul 10, 2014

I have nearly finished my project, but need to make the last real bit of code, then just some general tidying up.

What I want to do
- I currently have two tabs in a userform - one called 'main' and one called 'extra'.
- I want Main to always be shown to the user.
- I want Extra to be hidden (is it possible to make the tabs invisible?) and for this form to be shown only under a specific condition

I have a question on my userform (using Option Buttons):
"Did the customer ask about an extra product today?"

If the answer to this question is no - When the user hits the command button (after filling out the rest of the form), do nothing special - just return all the values to the worksheet

If the answer is yes - When the user hits the command button, I want them to be taken to the 'extra' tab. They will fill out some additional check-boxes, then hit another command box, which will return the info from both the 'main' and 'extra' sheets into the same row of the worksheet.

In brief: I want my 'extra' tab to be hidden, only to appear when 'yes' is selected, and for the results all to go back to the worksheet.
