VBA code to hide/unhide rows that have a "1" in column A - 32 sheets

I think you may have put the code in the wrong place (the unprotect and protect).

Try it like this:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

Dim Sh As Worksheet
  On Error Resume Next
  For Each Sh In Worksheets
Sh.Unprotect "Hskp19"
    Sh.Rows.Hidden = False
    Sh.Columns("A").SpecialCells(xlFormulas, xlNumbers).EntireRow.Hidden = True
Sh.Protect "Hskp19"
  On Error GoTo 0
End Sub
I don't know if you need to unprotect the sheet to click the button? If so this won't work sorry.

EDIT: D'oh just re-read your post where you clearly state you do need to unprotect it to click the button.
And now I'm not even sure if you need to unprotect each sheet to hide the rows... probably not... Yeah just ignore this post.

EDIT2: I've never needed to put "Password =" when using protect commands but I have always used quote marks around the password, maybe it will work if you use your code from your last post but change those two lines to:

ActiveSheet.Unprotect "Hskp19"


ActiveSheet.Protect "Hskp19"

EDIT3: Hopefully the last one. Just noticed something and feel stupid. If you need to unprotect to click the button, how does putting unprotect in the button_click code work? I am totally confused now.

Thank you yet again. Sorry to confuse you. I had tried a few things before sending the post then confused myself. I used the recent revision and it DOES work as necessary. I think we are good to move forward. Your help is greatly appreciated! I have tested a few different ways.
