Hey Folks,

I have a selection change problem. I am trying to hide rows based on the selection from a drop down (named QtrSel sitting in cell "C2"). I have visited several sites and looked at several questions here to see if I can figure out what is going on but to no avail. The code follows:

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)

    If Target.Address = "C2" Then
    
        Select Case Target
        
            Case "Q1"
                Rows("6:18").Hidden = False
                Rows("19:31").Hidden = True
                Rows("32:45").Hidden = True
                Rows("46:58").Hidden = True
                
            Case "Q2"
                Rows("6:18").Hidden = True
                Rows("19:31").Hidden = False
                Rows("32:45").Hidden = True
                Rows("46:58").Hidden = True
                
            Case "Q3"
                Rows("6:18").Hidden = True
                Rows("19:31").Hidden = True
                Rows("32:45").Hidden = False
                Rows("46:58").Hidden = True
                
            Case "Q4"
                Rows("6:18").Hidden = True
                Rows("19:31").Hidden = True
                Rows("32:45").Hidden = True
                Rows("46:58").Hidden = False
                
        End Select
        
    End If

End Sub

Any ideas

Thank you

Dave

Are you refering to the fact it dosent run when you select C2?
If so the address VBA sees for C2 is $C$2 so your if statement is always false.
If you add .address(False,False) instead of just address this will fix your problem.

also i would have thought it would be better to use a Worksheet Change Event instead of a Selection Change this way it will run when you change cell C2

but thats just my opinion :p

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

    If Target.Address[B](False, False)[/B] = "C2" Then
    
        Select Case Target
        
            Case "Q1"
                Rows("6:18").Hidden = False
                Rows("19:31").Hidden = True
                Rows("32:45").Hidden = True
                Rows("46:58").Hidden = True
                
            Case "Q2"
                Rows("6:18").Hidden = True
                Rows("19:31").Hidden = False
                Rows("32:45").Hidden = True
                Rows("46:58").Hidden = True
                
            Case "Q3"
                Rows("6:18").Hidden = True
                Rows("19:31").Hidden = True
                Rows("32:45").Hidden = False
                Rows("46:58").Hidden = True
                
            Case "Q4"
                Rows("6:18").Hidden = True
                Rows("19:31").Hidden = True
                Rows("32:45").Hidden = True
                Rows("46:58").Hidden = False
                
        End Select
        
    End If
End Sub

Hope this helps

Thank you friel, I made the changes including selectionchange to change. Now it works great. So what dictates selectionchange vs change??

Sorry for the late reply pal.

Selection Change Event triggers when the user (or macro) selects a different cell.
Change Events Triggers when you actualy change content of a cell.

Your exmple will run the code every time you click into Cell C2, but that means when you change it you will select another cell to accept the changes then have to go back to C2 to run your code again.
