Macros Connected To Hidden Sheet

Feb 14, 2014

I have a macro which copy text from a sheet (sheet-1) and paste it into another sheet.

I want sheet-1 to be hidden, or even better, very-hidden, but when I hide sheet-1 the macro run fails. Respons Run-time error '1004'...

Is it a solution around this 'problem' or does sheet-1 always has to be visible ?

How To Find Hidden Macros In VBA Project

Feb 9, 2014

I have got an Excel sheet . When I opened the file the first time I saw a macro, but then I clicked on some other sheets in the VBA and before I got a chance to copy the macro, it disappeared and there is no way I can find it again. I tried to open the file in another computer, but the macro is nowhere to be found. The file has 50 worksheets and ThisWorkBook. On the "Properties" window for ThisWorkBook I can see that there is a password. How can I find again the macro?

Lock Rows Unless They Are Hidden Or Unhidden By Macros?

Jul 15, 2014

The small attached "Demo2" file indicates my problem. In the "Scorecard" sheet I'm using macros driven from listbox menus to hide or unhide rows on the "Tasks" sheet. It is VITAL that the rows on the "Tasks" sheet not be deleted or have new rows inserted. But, if I Protect them then the list box macros won't function. Is there a macro that will allow these macros to hide or unhide rows without allowing a user to add or delete these rows in the "Tasks" sheet? If possible a simple "global" solution is preferred as I have 100+ If/Then entries to contend with...

Set WB = IIf(WhichBook Is Nothing, ThisWorkbook, WhichBook)
On Error Resume Next
WorksheetExists = CBool(Len(WB.Worksheets(SheetName).Name) > 0)

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 & ")"

Keep Hidden Sheet Made Visible As Active Sheet

Mar 2, 2007

I have a button on a sheet that runs a macro to unhide another sheet. That works, but I want the sheet made visible to remain forward. Instead, the button unhides the sheet and the sheet the button is on comes forward again. I am unable to figure how to keep the sheet made visible forward. Here is the macro 'as recorded'.

Sub UnhideSheet1()
Sheet2.Visible = True

Paste To Hidden Sheet

Nov 22, 2006

Windows("SL Forms.xls").Activate
Sheets("Hidden Sheet").Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats, Operation:=xlNone
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormats, Operation:=xlNone
Sheets("Hidden Sheet").Select

The macro starts on open, opens the workbook with the data to copy, copies and pastes the data into the original workbook. The problem is that "Hidden Sheet" is hidden, so the macro can't see it!

how do I get the macro to use this hidden sheet without keeping it 'un-hidden'?

Check If Connected To Network

Jan 11, 2008

I have created an application for users that requires the user be connected to the network. I wanted to do a check to see if they are connected, and if the user is not connected they would get a message box telling them that they need to be connected to the network, then the workbook would close. Below is the code I have, but when a user is not connected they do not get my messagebox, instead they get the excel error message "excel run-time error '52': bad file name or number", and the debugger line that gets highlighted is in the function DirExists that checks the length of the directory of the file path: Len(Dir(strpath))

Option Explicit
Function DirExists(strpath As String) As Boolean
If Len(Dir(strpath)) = 0 Then 'this is where the debugger highlights
DirExists = False
DirExists = True
End If
End Function

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Dim strpath As String
Dim strfile, strfile2 As String
strpath = "\n530fs1PCLFileSharespcl_repositPricing_ToolsPAT"

Additional Hidden Sheet Names

Mar 10, 2014

I have problem with additional "hidden"(duplicated?) sheets (not by atribute)

This is my excel, created from new fresh file : excel tables.bmp

And this is what i see when i get all sheetnames (with C#, word and some other programs) word-tables.JPG

where A1$ have same value as A1$_4349_inkjet_WZ

I have this problem with some other files but in this one i have 100% confidence that none of sheets is hidden nor very hidden.

I found that 3 proper tables are "System table" and 2 additional are "tables".

Running Code On A Hidden Sheet

Jul 13, 2009

I have placed the code I am using below. It takes values from a hidden sheet (PACTAct) and places them on a visible sheet (Email). The code moves between the two.

It works at the minute by unhiding the PACTAct sheet then at the end re-hiding it. However I don't want the user to see this sheet whilst the vba is running. Is there a way I can simply refer to the worksheet without unhiding it?

Copying And Pasting In Hidden Sheet?

Aug 14, 2012

I have the following code (which works fine when the sheet isn't hidden)

FinalRow2 = TtlRev.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
TtlRev.Range(Cells(6, 39), Cells(FinalRow2, 41)).Select

However, I need to hide the sheet, but it doesn't work because you can't use .select on a hidden sheet I believe. Any way of doing this to a hidden sheet?

Selective Columns In Connected Workbooks

Mar 20, 2014

I have a workbook with several columns, some of which are for internal company use only.

Sometimes we need to send an updated list to business partners, but they don't need all columns.

Is it possible to make another workbook which takes only specific columns, and excludes the stray info at the bottom of the original workbook? See examples.

Alternatively: Would it be simpler to make an extra sheet in the original workbook, and somehow choose "Safe only this sheet to a new document" whenever someone requests the list?

Calculate A Lot Of Averages Of Non-connected Values

Feb 20, 2008

Situation: I need to calculate a lot of averages of non-connected values. That is, they are separated by several rows (which also contain values). So far, I use the code-sample below (just to illustrate), which is not really elegant. Unfortunately, it seems that this technique comes to its limits when a high number of different non-connected values are combined into one string and get assigned to a formula- range (last line of code), which is where the program stops.

My question is: Is there a nice way to solve this? A way, which is not limited by the amount of data processed? The only way I could think of, would include a UDF, where a sum, sums all values up and then devides by the number of added sums ... but this would be relatively slow, and I have an awful lot of values to be averaged (100 sets * 6 rows * 200 values = 120.000 calculation- steps), as well as STDEV and a Standard Error of Mean (SEM) to calculate. Is there a better alternative?

Const intCells=9 'actually, this is no constant but a variable
Const i=4 'actually, this is no constant, but a nested for- loop-value
Const intLinesInBetween = 12 ' amount of lines, which separate my values
Dim j As Integer 'simple counter, runs through all cells
Dim rngUpperRow As Range 'Range of the upper row = normalized time vector
Dim rngCurrentRowAvg As Range 'current row into which avg formulas are inserted
Dim intCells As Integer ' amount of experiments in range............
