Hello Excel Gurus,

How are you? I want to learn about a macro that can prompt user to close all other workbooks so that only one active workbook is opened.

Is it possible?

Thanks and will appreciate any help.

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

MsgBox "Please close all other workbooks before adding a new item."
