Hi,

I have a problem with Excel.

I have a spreadsheet which has an Auto_Open module which selectivly hides or unhides cells dependant on the user.  However I now need to unhide a cell based on what the user enters into another cell...it breaks down thus...

X4 is hidden but when B4>0 I want to unhide it.

Is there a cell event change event in Excel VBA that I can tap into to do this?

Hi, WHITER99

-in excel open the VB editor (ALT+F11)
-then double click the ThisWorkBook icon
-paste the code

Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
  If Target.Address = "$B$4" Then
    If Target.Value > 0 Then
      Columns("Z:Z").Select
      Selection.EntireColumn.Hidden = False
    End If
  End If
End Sub

-this will make the complete column Z visible
-you can't hide or unhide one cell only columns
