As part of a macro I want to open a file that has a sheet that is set to 'xlSheetVeryHidden' and I would like tot make this sheet visible to enable the macro to copy some of the data on it.

Can this be done as part of a macro or is it something that can only be changed manually?

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

You can do that like this

Code:
Sheets("Sheet1").Visible = xlSheetVisible
although you should not need to do this just to be able to write to the sheet.

It can be done in a macro, add the following afterwards to make it hidden again

Sheets("MySheet").Visible = xlVeryHidden
