Hi,

there is probably a very simple solution to this, however i cant seem to find it. Im looking to create a macro that hides around 300 specific lines of a spreadsheet.

I have the code written, however when compiling i get a syntax error probably because one of the lines is extremely long. Can anyone help me in putting this code in a format that will work? I have provided the code below;

Code:
    Sub Macro3()
Range("13:13,16:16,19:19,22:22,25:25,28:28,31:31,34:34,37:37,40:40,43:43,46:46,49:49,52:52,55:55,58:58,61:61,64:64,67:67,70:70,73:73,76:76,79:79,82:82,85:85,88:88,91:91,94:94,97:97,100:100,103:103,106:106,109:109,112:112,115:115,118:118,121:121,124:124,127:127,130:130,133:133,232:232,235:235,238:238,241:241,244:244,247:247,250:250,253:253,256:256,259:259,262:262,265:265,268:268,271:271,274:274,277:277,280:280,283:283,286:286,289:289,292:292,295:295,298:298,301:301,304:304,307:307,310:310,313:313,316:316,319:319,322:322,325:325,328:328,331:331,334:334,337:337,340:340,343:343,346:346,349:349,352:352,355:355,358:358,361:361,364:364,367:367,370:370,373:373,376:376,379:379,382:382,385:385,388:388,391:391,394:394,397:397,400:400,403:403,406:406,409:409,412:412,415:415,418:418,421:421,424:424,427:427,430:430,433:433,436:436,439:439,442:442,445:445,448:448,451:451,454:454,457:457,460:460,463:463,466:466,469:469,472:472,475:475,478:478,481:481,484:484,487:487,490:490,493:493,496:496,499:499,502:502,505:505,508:508,511:511,514:514,517:517,520:520,523:523,526:526,529:529,532:532,535:535,538:538,541:541,544:544,547:547,550:550,553:553,556:556,559:559,562:562,565:565,568:568,571:571,574:574,577:577,580:580,583:583,586:586,589:589,592:592,595:595,598:598,601:601,604:604,607:607,610:610,613:613,616:616,619:619,622:622,625:625,628:628,631:631,634:634,637:637,640:640,643:643,646:646,649:649,652:652,655:655,658:658,661:661,664:664,667:667,670:670,673:673,676:676,679:679,682:682,685:685,688:688,691:691,694:694,697:697,700:700,703:703,706:706,709:709,712:712,715:715,718:718,721:721,724:724,727:727,730:730,733:733,736:736,739:739,742:742,745:745,748:748,751:751,754:754,757:757,760:760,763:763,766:766,769:769,772:772,775:775,778:778,781:781,784:784,787:787,790:790,793:793,796:796,799:799,802:802,805:805,808:808,811:811,814:814,817:817,820:820,823:823,826:826,829:829,832:832,835:835,838:838,841:841,844:844,847:847,850:850,853:853,856:856,859:859,862:862,865:865,868:868,871:871,874:874,877:877,880:880,883:883,886:886,889:889,892:892,895:895,898:898,901:901,904:904,907:907,910:910,913:913,136:136,139:139,142:142,145:145,148:148,151:151,154:154,157:157,160:160,163:163,166:166,169:169,172:172,175:175,178:178,181:181,184:184,187:187,190:190,193:193,196:196,199:199,202:202,205:205,208:208,211:211,214:214,217:217,220:220,223:223,226:226,229:229").Select

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

Hiya
I haven't checked all your numbers, but it looks to be in steps of 3, so how about something like this
Code:
Sub ThreeRws()

    Dim i As Integer

    For i = 13 To 913 Step 3
        Rows(i).Hidden = True
    Next i

End Sub

FYI, the Range statement will only accept 255 characters as its argument, so you'd have had to Union several ranges to do it your original way.
