Hmm, cant find how to do this anywhere, just wish to save a file as a hidden file.

guessing it goes here somewhere
Code:
SaveFile:
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs (FilePath & ".xls"), _
FileFormat:=xlNormal, _
Password:="", _
WriteResPassword:="", _
ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, _
CreateBackup:=False

Can you AutoAverage in Excel?
There is a drop-down next to the AutoSum symbol. Open the drop-down to choose AVERAGE, COUNT, MAX, or MIN

See if this works for you :

Code:
Sub Test()

    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs (FilePath & ".xls"), _
    FileFormat:=xlNormal, _
    Password:="", _
    WriteResPassword:="", _
    ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, _
    CreateBackup:=False
        
    'add this line :
    VBA.SetAttr FilePath & ".xls", vbHidden

End Sub

Regards.
