Creating a macro to hide all rows containing currently selected values

I am hoping to create a way to hide rows on multiple sheets based off the text in the currently highlighted cell. So, for instance if I am on Sheet 1 and I am highlighting a cell containing "John Smith", I want to hit a button (from developer inserts) and it will hide all rows (across all 5 sheets) if their column c contains "John Smith".

Is this sort of thing even possible? I am incredibly new to creating macros myself, so I am not sure if this is beyond the limits of excel. Perhaps I would need a add-in to be able to do this?

Thanks!

Additionally, I want to be able to do this multiple times with different cells, while still maintaining the previously hidden rows.

Yes, "John Smith" would be in the cell all by itself.
Give this macro a try...
Code:
Sub HideRows()
  Dim Text As String, WS As Worksheet
  Text = ActiveCell.Value
  On Error Resume Next
  Application.ScreenUpdating = False
  For Each WS In Worksheets
    With WS.Columns("C")
      .Replace Text, "#N/A", xlWhole, , False, , False, False
      .SpecialCells(xlConstants, xlErrors).EntireRow.Hidden = True
      .Replace "#N/A", Text
    End With
  Next
  Application.ScreenUpdating = True
  On Error GoTo 0
End Sub

Rick,

I appreciate your effort, but when I gave it a try it hid every row with text in it.

Actually, after looking through the macro I realized I had mistakenly told you column "C", when it was actually column "D". After I changed that in the macro it works great! Thank you so much
