How can I control a calendar from a module (vs. worksheet code)?

I want to toggle a calender property     .visible = true/false from a module.

script:        Calendar1.visible=true        

works fine in the worksheet, but bugs out at the module level.

An excel Calendar object is a Shape.

The below code provides two routines - one to make visible, and one to make invisible.  The assumption is there's a calendar called "Calendar1" in Sheet1.  This can be placed in a public module.

Sub CalendarVisible()

    Sheets("Sheet1").Shapes("Calendar1").Visible = True

End Sub
Sub CalendarInvisible()

    Sheets("Sheet1").Shapes("Calendar1").Visible = False
    
End Sub

Open in new window


Also, see attached file.

Enjoy!

Ah...  I needed to reference the worksheet where the object resides.

Thanks!!!!   --Andres

Andres, when in doubt, turn on your macro recorder and then change properties of a shape (e.g., Visible to true/false) and the recorder will show you the way!
