Hide/unhide Columns Based On Dropdown List Answer

Sep 26, 2008

I am a newbie to Excel. I really appreciate if someone could help me here and this is very urgent as I have a project going on.

I have a cell say B3, which is a dropdown list I created using Data Validation. It only lists down Yes or No.

What I need is when you click on Yes in B3, i need columns C to I to unhide. If answer is No, column C to I should be hidden. By default, the columns will be hidden.

Can you please help? I tried many times but not successful. Appreciate if someone will be able to walk me through details. If you want to see the sample spreadsheet, I can sent it to you by email. I tried Data> Outline group but they are not happy with this.

Hide / Unhide Columns In Multiple Worksheets Based On Item Chosen In Dropdown List?

Feb 26, 2014

I am hoping to create a drop down list of months in one sheet, and when I select a certain month, columns in about 10 other worksheets in the same workbook will either hide or unhide columns...

The spreadsheet is laid out with columns (C-N) for each month in the year, for actuals, then columns for budget and budget variance (O-P), then YTD Actual, YTD Budget and YTD Variance. When I select September, for example, I want October-December to hide, and leave Jan-Sep unhidden, while keeping the budget, YTD and variance columns.

Is there a VBA code that can achieve this?

Hide And Unhide Columns Based On Cell Value From Lookup

Dec 4, 2013

I am trying to hide/unhide columns based on what is return to cell C2 from this lookup (=VLOOKUP(B2,GM!E2:M129,9,FALSE)). It can only return 3,6 or 9

If it returns 3 I want to hide columns I:P
If it returns 12 I want to hide columns E:L
If it returns 6 I want to hide E:H and M:P

I have been trying to work with this code which I found on this forum but I haven't been able to get it working fully. It only works when C2 is entered rather than calculated and I can't get it working for the M:P part of the third option.

Code:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim Changed As Range
Set Changed = Range("C2")
If Not Intersect(Target, Changed) Is Nothing Then
Range("A:Z").EntireColumn.Hidden = False

[Code]...

Hide/unhide Number Of Columns Based On Cell Value

Jul 17, 2007

If I have a value in A1 and run a macro [button], I want to have it hide a number of rows.

Each number is one column.

eg if A1 = 2 then B:C are visible, D:IV Hidden
if A1 = 3 then B:D are visible, E:IV Hidden
if A1 = 4 then B:E are visible, F:IV Hidden

up to 200 columns.

I tried it as a select case, but it is limited to just 22 cases which obviously not enough.

Unhide/hide Multiple Columns Based On Date

Jul 30, 2007

I need to show hidden columns based on the date I entered. For example, if I entered "1/1/1990" on a1 as the starting date and "4/30/1990" on b1 as the ending date. I want Excel to show the columns that are covered by the date, thus it shows Jan, Feb, March and April. How do I do that? Here's an example attachment. In here Sheet 1 is the starting point, the highlighted cells is where I enter the date. the Result sheet shows what I want Excel to show me when I have a date entered.

Hide / Unhide Rows And Columns Based On Several Date Ranges

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/Unhide The Columns

I've come across a spreadsheet where certain rows and columns (typically top rows or left columns) are hidden; however, there's no way to unhide them (the unhide function is grayed out) and it doesn't seem to be protected or no visible macros/vba on the file.

Hide/Unhide Columns

Dec 19, 2008

I have a spreadsheet that has 28 columns for time entries. Typically only the first 12 columns are used, so I would like to hide the remaining 16 columns (which makes the spreadsheet much more user-friendly). It would probably be nearly impossible to teach all of them how to Unhide the remaining columns (and re-Hide), plus I would like to use the full-screen function when employees enter thier times. I would like to use a form control in the column heading so that when the employees 'check' it, it will Unhide and then re-Hide the columns. Any way to do this? Seems like a VB thing to me (out of my league, but would be happy to add one in!).

Button To Hide / Unhide Columns

Jul 25, 2012

I'm looking to make a simple button that would hide a given range of columns.

This is the simplest I could find:

VB:
Sub button1()
Columns("AD:AE").EntireColumn.Hidden = Not Columns("AD:AE").EntireColumn.Hidden
End Sub

Although this works nicely, there was another way to do it (looks more ergonomic and doesn't take up spreadsheet space). Here's a screenshot of what I mean: ColumnHide.gif

VBA Cycle Hide / Unhide Columns?

Aug 5, 2013

The code below if I run once Hide the Range("H:FV,GG:IV") and shows the Range("A:G, FW:GF") And if I run it again Unhide the Range("H:FV,GG:IV") And Show all columns

Code:
Sub Hide_Unhide()Range("H:FV,GG:IV").Select
If Selection.EntireColumn.Hidden = True Then
Range("H:FV,GG:IV").EntireColumn.Hidden = False
Else
Range("H:FV,GG:IV").Select
If Selection.EntireColumn.Hidden = False Then
Range("H:FV,GG:IV").EntireColumn.Hidden = True
End If
End If
Range("A1").Select
End Sub

Above code is working with 2 cases now is it possible to add 3rd case Hide Or Unhide Range("H:GG,GI:HJ,HO:IV") in the same code, and shows the Range("A:G, GH, HK:HN")

Resume: my request
Step1-if I run macro First time it must Hide Range("H:FV,GG:IV") and shows the Range("A:G, FW:GF")
Step2-If I run macro Second time it must Hide Range("H:GG,GI:HJ,HO:IV") and shows the Range("A:G, GH, HK:HN")
Step3-if I run macro third time it must show all columns

And repeat same cycle all time Step 1 to 2, Step2 to 3 and Step3 to 1

Using VBA To Hide And Unhide Multiple Columns?

Dec 1, 2013

I have a worksheet with a fair amount of data. It is split into two parts: the main part is a table with data in columns D to AR while the other part is simply a list with checkboxes against each item. I have set things up so that when a checkbox is ticked against an item in the list, then a 2 appears in row 2 above the relevant column in the main table; if the checkbox is unticked then a 2 appears above the relevant column.

What I seek is a macro that will hide all columns that do not have the associated item ticked; in other words, I want columns to be hidden if there is a 1 in the relevant cell in Row 2 (and visible if there is a 2 there).

I have used the following code (obtained from this forum), but it doesn't work as expected. When I select the items, the cells in Row 2 react as expected, but the hiding and unhiding only occurs when I go to another Worksheet and then return to the Worksheet where the data is. Obviously I want the macro to work immediately I tick or untick a checkbox. What is wrong with the code I have used?

Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
Call HideCols
End SubSub

[Code]....
