Hi,

I wonder if you can help please. I have the macro below to hide shapes dependent on related cell contents. It works fine but I'm hoping somebody can share a more efficient way to do this as I'll need to apply to over 200 shapes to complete the workbook! As you can tell I am a beginner!

Any help would be much appreciated.

thank you.
Iain


VBA Code:
    If Range("Am34") = 1 Then
    ActiveSheet.Shapes.Range(Array("Right Arrow 195")).Select
    Selection.ShapeRange.ThreeD.Visible = msoFalse
    Selection.ShapeRange.Fill.Visible = msoFalse
    End If
    
    If Range("Am34") = 2 Then
    ActiveSheet.Shapes.Range(Array("Right Arrow 195")).Select
    Selection.ShapeRange.ThreeD.Visible = msoTrue
    Selection.ShapeRange.Fill.Visible = msoTrue
    End If
    
    If Range("bm34") = 1 Then
    ActiveSheet.Shapes.Range(Array("Right Arrow 196")).Select
    Selection.ShapeRange.ThreeD.Visible = msoFalse
    Selection.ShapeRange.Fill.Visible = msoFalse
    End If
    
    If Range("bm34") = 2 Then
    ActiveSheet.Shapes.Range(Array("Right Arrow 196")).Select
    Selection.ShapeRange.ThreeD.Visible = msoTrue
    Selection.ShapeRange.Fill.Visible = msoTrue
    End If
    
    If Range("cm34") = 1 Then
    ActiveSheet.Shapes.Range(Array("Right Arrow 162")).Select
    Selection.ShapeRange.ThreeD.Visible = msoFalse
    Selection.ShapeRange.Fill.Visible = msoFalse
    End If
    
    If Range("cm34") = 2 Then
    ActiveSheet.Shapes.Range(Array("Right Arrow 162")).Select
    Selection.ShapeRange.ThreeD.Visible = msoTrue
    Selection.ShapeRange.Fill.Visible = msoTrue
    End If

and so on to DM34, EM34 up to HM34, then I need to repeat on lower rows.....

Try the following...

VBA Code:
    Dim arr() As Variant
    arr() = Array("am34", "195", "bm34", "196", "cm34", "162") 'add your other ranges and corresponding numbers
   
    Dim i As Long
    For i = LBound(arr) To UBound(arr) Step 2
        If Range(arr(i)).Value = 1 Then
            With ActiveSheet.Shapes("Right Arrow " & arr(i + 1))
                .ThreeD.Visible = msoFalse
                .Fill.Visible = msoFalse
            End With
        ElseIf Range(arr(i)).Value = 2 Then
            With ActiveSheet.Shapes("Right Arrow " & arr(i + 1))
                .ThreeD.Visible = msoTrue
                .Fill.Visible = msoTrue
            End With
        End If
    Next i

Actually, it can also be written this way...

VBA Code:
    Dim arr() As Variant
    arr() = Array("am34", "195", "bm34", "196", "cm34", "162")
   
    Dim i As Long
    Dim flag As Long
    For i = LBound(arr) To UBound(arr) Step 2
        If Range(arr(i)).Value = 1 Then
            flag = msoFalse
        ElseIf Range(arr(i)).Value = 2 Then
            flag = msoTrue
        End If
        With ActiveSheet.Shapes("Right Arrow " & arr(i + 1))
            .ThreeD.Visible = flag
            .Fill.Visible = flag
        End With
    Next i

Hope this helps!

Hope this helps!
This is perfect - just what I was looking for. You saved me a ton of typing and no doubt speeded me up! Thank you very much for your help.
