Dear friends,
I try to hide a # of rows from cell value (E1) .. 21
therefore I wrote

Rows("(Range(E1).value):25").EntireRow.Hidden = False

(in my case Cell (E1) = 10, but can vary in value.
Obviously there is a type mismatch. What do I do wrong here?

Many thanks for your replies.
Highly appreciated.

Are you trying to hide rows based on a value?

Yes I'm trying to hide a qty of rows, based on a value.
This can depend from row 5:25 up until 25:25. The first value I have located in a cell. therefore I want to look up this value.

Try:

Code:
Rows(Range(E1).Value & ":25").EntireRow.Hidden = False

Many thanks for your answer. I tried it, unfortunately I get a

Run-time error '1004'
Method 'Range' of object '_Global' failed

Andrew has a typo in his code... he omitted the quote marks that are required by the Range object around its argument (the E1 address in this case)...

Code:
Rows(Range([COLOR=#ff0000][B]"[/B][/COLOR]E1[COLOR=#ff0000][B]"[/B][/COLOR]).Value & ":25").Hidden = True

Note that I removed the EntireRow property which is not needed because Rows was specified as the Range object. I will also point out, if the address where the value is being taken from (the E1 address) is fixed and unchanging, then there is a more compact form of this code line...

Code:
Rows([E1] & ":25").Hidden = True

Note, with the square bracket notation, and because the address is fixed, quote marks are not used around the E1 address.
