# Hiding Rows Given a Condition

Posted by Michael on June 13, 2001 7:17 PM

Is there a formula in Excel to hide rows given a specific value (if a1=0 then hide row)? If not, is there any other condition that would work?

Yes, but you will have to use visual basic. You need to right click on the sheet tab then use some code simular to the following code below.
you can change = "PG2" to whatever you want
write numbers like this 2
text like this "text"
change sheets and ranges to suit
hope this helps

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Sheet2.Range("C188") = "PG2" Then
Sheet2.Range("A36:A70").EntireRow.Hidden = False
Sheet3.Range("A36:A70").EntireRow.Hidden = False
Sheet4.Range("A36:A70").EntireRow.Hidden = False

Else
Sheet2.Range("A36:A70").EntireRow.Hidden = True
Sheet3.Range("A36:A70").EntireRow.Hidden = True
Sheet4.Range("A36:A70").EntireRow.Hidden = True

End If
End Sub

The VB code below will hide any rows which contains zero in column A. It runs from a option Ctrl-+key now and was tested with values in column 1 and random values in its rows! JSW

Sub MyHide()
'This "Hides" any Row in Column(A) that =0.
'By J.S. Was, 6-12-2001.
Dim i
For i = 1 To 10
With Intersect(Columns(1), ActiveSheet.UsedRange)
Rows(i).Select
If .Rows(i).Value = 0 Then
Selection.EntireRow.Hidden = True
End If
End With
Next
End Sub
