How to automatically hide and unhide cells based on cell val

Q: How to automatically hide and unhide cells based on cell val

Hey all

New here and new to VBA so I apologize if this is the incorrect place to ask this question or if I'm not including enough information.

Basically I have two forms, one form that is a cost est. form and another form is a proposal form (client sees this one). I have the proposal form pulling information over from the cost est. form. What I would like to do is on the proposal form if rows c13:c277 are blank (no data pulled from the cost est. sheet) they will hide. But when I add data (a number) into the cost est. form the proposal form pulls that and unhides that row.

I've tried all kinds of VBA code and none seem to do what I want. I can get the rows to hide but then not unhide. I don't have code to show because I have deleted it when it didn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a way in Excel (I'm running Excel 2010, but have access to older versions) to hide/unhide cells based on hyperlinks or defined areas? I've hyperlinked so that we could go to specific parts of the document, but that does me little good because we have to hide them or the doc gets to big. Is there a way to have the hyperlink (or the cell hyperlinked) unhide the area? I've attached the document (removed all company info, but the lay out is there) so that you can see what I'm referring to.

I've thought macros, but I'm not sure how to go about it... I did define each area for the hyperlink, so would that be the route to go?

Hello

Yesterday I created a code that hides/unhides rows when checkbox is clickedand goes something like this:

Rows("22:24").EntireRow.Hidden = Not Rows("22:24").EntireRow.Hidden

But now i only want to hide/unhide specified cells. So how can i modify the code above to do this or do I need some new code.

Thanks for help
 

A:macro to hide/unhide cells

"hide/unhide specified cells" - I take it, you mean rows, not cells.

What's your criteria for hiding/unhiding the row? All you need to do is loop through each row in your criteria column, and then program this in as your hide/unhide criteria.

Pseudo Code:

Code:


Sub hideAndUnhide()
[INDENT]For Each Cell In Range("A1",Range("A1").End(xlDown))
[INDENT]If(Cell.Value = 1) Then
[INDENT]Rows(Cell.Row).EntireRow.Hidden = True [/INDENT]
Else
[INDENT]Rows(Cell.Row).EntireRow.Hidden = False[/INDENT]
End If[/INDENT]
Next Cell
[/INDENT]
End Sub

If you let me know your data layout, and your criteria, I should be able to make a proper version for you. Even better would be to post your excel sheet with dummy data (remove any sensitive data).

A:Solved: excel hide/unhide on cell value

You need to trigger a macro which can be called from the form.

When a value is chosen, the macro triggered will be something like

To hide:
Range(Cells(6,1),Cells(25,1)).entirerow.Hidden = true

To Unhide:
Range(Cells(6, 1), Cells(25, 1)).EntireRow.Hidden = False

Hi there! I'm new to using these forums, but have spent some time scouring them from time to time to look for simple solutions to any excel/VBA problems I'm having. I consider myself relatively intermediate to advanced in Excel as far as formulas and spreadsheet creation goes, however VBA is foreign to me, and an area I'd love to learn. If any of you have recommendations on a good resource to begin learning VBA, please send it my way. And now....onto my macro question.

I've got a workbook with many tabs, and one or two input tabs feed information into another summary tab using various lookup and index formulas. There are any where from 40 to 80 rows to be qualified depending on the specific summary sheet (therefore I will likely need the macro to reference only the active sheet as it needs to work the same way on different sheets independent of each other). What I would like to do is if the result of the formula in column A of the summary sheet is "----------" (starts at A7) then I would like to hide that row, and if the data is changed on the input tab to result in anything other than the qualifying "----------", for that row to be unhidden. If this can be done dynamically that'd be great, however, if a button needs to be put into the spreadsheet to execute the macro, that will be fine too.

Thanks so much in advance for your help, and I promise I'll do my best to begin learning VBA so I can help contribute in return!
 

A:Macro to Hide/Unhide Rows Based on Results in Column Equation

HI,

Here is a code that may help you. You can copy and paste it too a module.
When you copy it to a module you can assign a "Short" cut key to activate the code.
To do this you select "Tool", "Macro" and when you see the name of the macro you want to run you can select it and then select "Options" and assign the short cut key. You will be able to use the short cut key on any active sheet.
Code:

Sub Hide_Row()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim Mysh As Worksheet
Dim cel As Range
Set Mysh = ActiveSheet
For Each cel In Mysh.Range("A1:A" & Mysh.Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row)
If Not (Mysh.Cells(cel.Row, 1).Value Like "--*") Then
Mysh.Cells(cel.Row, 1).EntireRow.Hidden = False
Else
Mysh.Cells(cel.Row, 1).EntireRow.Hidden = True

I have built a simple timesheet for someone in my dept, which includes amongst other things:

- hours worked over a month,
- how many hours owed/extra worked
- a cumulative of this figure over the months.

The requestor wants to be able to type a letter such as 'e' to represent a 07:30hr shift. So they type 'e' and the cell contents change to 07:30. There are about 6 different codes.

Normally a Vlookup would work EXCEPT you can't change the contents of the cell your are working upon.....cicrular referencing!

I could see two ways forward: either a function that allows the above

OR (perhaps more favourably)

leaving the lookups until the hour calculations at the base of the form. i.e Instead of a simple Sum for the hours worked that month, it could read the values in the range, look them up from a table(vlookup), and then sum the looked up figures to give the answer in the 'hours worked' cell.

I vaguely remember this being possible from my university days but can't remember how.

Can anyone help me?

Hi,

My VBA/Macro knowledge is very basic, but I am able to record macros and edit them. I have a scatter plot (with 5 series) and I want to automatically change the line style (i.e. solid or dashed etc.) depending on the text in a cell. This is what I tried, but I cannot get the code to reference the cell which contains the text:

' Macro14 Macro
'
'
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 1").Activate
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Select
With Selection.Format.Line
.Visible = msoTrue
.DashStyle = msoLineSolid
End With
End Sub
--------------------------------------------------------------

For the line ".DashStyle = msoLineSolid" I tried ".DashStyle = Range("A7").Select" but this does not work.

Is there a simpler way to set-up a macro to format graphs automatically based on a cell content/format/colour, does anyone know a good guide to do this?

Hello,

I cant seem work out a solution for what I'm trying to do. I have an Excel workbook that has multiple sheets. On sheet 1 i want the data from cell "G3" to be copied onto sheet 2. But i want the location on sheet 2 to be based on whatever was entered into cell "D3" on sheet 1.

For example: Sheet 1, cell D3 I have the name John, in cell G3 i have 68. I want "68" to be pasted in sheet 2 in cell B26.

But if the name in Sheet 1 cell D3 is Suzie, then I want G3 to be pasted in Sheet 2 in cell D26. So I would need to identify the paste location for each person.

I want the data to paste to the next cell so that the next entry can be pasted below the last entry for that person (for John the first entry would go into cell B26, then the next entry would go into cell B27 and so on).

But i want it to be a specific range, i dont want data to be pasted past 20 cells (cell B45). If possible a message box could be created to let the user know that the max is reached.

I would appreciate anyone's help with this as i have been struggling for awhile to try to get this. Thank you

The problem is the space is still being taken up by the other hidden table. So if I click the second link, there is this huge gap and then the other table is visible. Any idea on how to not have the gap? I tried using "document.write" but the way I wrote it screwed up the layout.
2) Problem two is similar. I have a form select, that when option 2 is selected I would like to make a table visible.

Hey ya'll,
I have 5 tabs of subforms in Access 2010
Only the first tab is visable.
I only want the rest of the tabs visable if associated checked boxes on first tab are checked.
For example, the check boxes on first tab are:
- Registrant is going to volunteer
- Registrant is a veteran
If those boxes are checked then the associated tab (volunteer info tab) is rendered visable.
I assume this is going to need VB code on either the tabs event, or the first form event, or the check box?
Thank you
 

A:Access Unhide tabs based on checked box

Yes you need to add some VBA code to the "After Update" event procedures of the Check boxes.
It would be something like
if me.checkboxname = -1 then
me.tabname.visible = true
else
me.tabname.visible = false
end if
where checkboxname is the actual name of your checkbox and tabname is the name of the tab to be made visible.
The VBA editor should offer you the correct names of the controls on the Form.

I know about right-clicking the Desktop > View > Show Desktop Icons.

But now I am looking for a HOTKEY to simply hide or show the desktop icons.

I found some instructions on google that seem to work for windows xp but they don't work for me on windows 7.

Do you know of a way to accomplish what I want?

Do you know of a way to do what I want?

Alright, here's what I got going on:

I want to be able to have a completely clear desktop, void of icons and start toolbar with a hot key. However, I would like to be able have access to the start toolbar and able to have desktop icons available to me. This is where the hot key would come into play: the ability to hide/unhide both sets (icons and toolbar) simultaneously. Does anyone know of a program or registry hack that would accomplish this?

Thanks.

Hi! Good Day!

I cant find ways to automatically hide & unhide row depending in G14, G15 & G17. I dont know if it is applicable to Excel. Even if the solution is in other programming language, then its ok to me.

If G14=4 & G15=3 & G17=2 then hide row 28 to 29 & row 36 to 38 & row 43 to 46

I have attach a file for reference.

Thank you so much!

I will eventually want this to work on all worksheets in the workbook as their data may change as the "linked tables" are refreshed. The linked tables are from Access.

What I want to do is look in column Q to see if the result of the calculation in that cell is 0. If so, I want the row hidden. I don't want to hide empty rows, just the one where the calculation =0. If the data in the workbook, i.e. the linked tables are updated, then I want any rows that have changed from 0 to another value to then become unhidden.

I have been searching for VBA code to auto hide/unhide rows in Excel 2007 based on the value in a specific column. I found the following code, but can't seem to get it to work quite right. I changed some of the criteria to fit my worksheet. The problem is that it hides all rows that are empty even though I changed the criteria from "" to 0. Also, this does not unhide rows that may refresh with a value.

I would really appreciate some guidance. My Access and Excel skills are pretty good, but when it comes to incorporating VBA into the mix, I get a little lost.

Hi guys

Is there a way to unhide the next hidden row (out of all hidden rows in the sheet) based on the location of the button clicked?
Basically what I need is a macro that works with any button (without specifying a concrete name for the button). Based on the row where clicked button is located (there will be cca 15 of them on the sheet), ie row 15, it will unhide next hidden row but leave all hidden rows above hidden.

Hopefully, I didn't confuse you too much.

Thanks a lot!

Michael

Dear Brink,

Is it possible to disable/re-enable or hide/unhide Start Menu in Windows Vista via registry, using VB6 or at least disable/re-enable all items in (shortcuts and everyrthing else in Start Menu) in order to exclude starting of ANY program via contents of Start menu in Vista while my own application is active?

Could it be possible to disable/re-enable "Windows" key or any combinations of keys such as "Windows" + "Esc" via registry, using VB6?

Thanks in advance for your help.

A:Disable/re-enable or hide/unhide Start Menu in Windows Vista via registry, using VB6

Hello Vnaz235, and welcome to Vista Forums.

I'm not sure what you mean by the first question. Did you want to stop a startup program from running?


This tutorial will show you how to enable/disable all Windows Key keyboard shortcuts.

Hope this helps,

I have a database that consists of the following:
Col A: case number (e.g. 1993-01-115, 2002-11-078, etc.)
Col B: username (e.g. John Henry, Jane Doe, etc.)
Col C: hours (number of hours each user worked on case number)
Col D: case owner name

Col A contains repeats of some case numbers and is sorted ascending
Col B contains repeats of some usernames

I need to add the hours in Col C depending on:

Each time a unique case number is encountered, check Col D (case owner name) and lookup this name in Col B (username) and sum the hours for each instance the case owner appears.
Database example:
Case No Username Hours Owner
1993-01-115 Jane Doe 2 Jane Doe
2004-05-020 John Henry 1 Theresa Chan
2004-05-020 Theresa Chan 2 Theresa Chan
2004-05-020 Theresa Chan 3 Theresa Chan
2004-05-020 Larry Roberts 1 Theresa Chan
2004-11-072 Andrew Dunn 1 Andrew Dunn

So using the above example, case 1993-01-115 owner is Jane Doe and total hours is 2, case 2004-05-020 the owner is Theresa Chan and total hours is 5, case 2004-11-072 the owner is Andrew Dunn and total hours is 1 and so on.

Could someone help me write a formula to accomplish this? Thanks!

Need an excel formula that will look at four cells, if the sum of them are zero then I want it to make another cell red.

44.000 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00
6215.068 1243.01 621.51 3542.59 807.96
This would result in 44.000 turning red and 6215.068 not turning red.

Thanks for your assistance.
 

A:If sum of 4 cells is = to 0 turn another cell red

Easy enough! Highlight the cells (not the whole column) you want to change when the condition is met (I am assuming they are in column A and the rest of the data in in columns B, C, D, and E).
Go to Format, Conditional Formatting.
In the box, change it to read when the Formula is and then enter the following in the box:
=SUM(B1:E1)=0
Then click on the Format button, click on Patterns, and select your color.
Click OK.

I have query in MS access 2003 which has a field with both + & - figures - i want to spilt this field into the + and - components. Does anyone have any suggestions how i can do this - would if statements work??

Thanks...
 

A:Copying cells from one cell to another

Just do a greater than/equal to zero and a less than/equal to zero. You should only have the equal to on one side or the other. Yes, an if statement would work.
