Hello,
How can I detect the number of characters currently being typed in a userform's textbox1.
So if I type ABC then I run my code as soon as C is being typed in the textbox.

Will appreciate a lot.

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.
