Hi

I have an excel workbook which has a number of sheets,

what I would like to do is hide the sheets, only allowing access to them with a custom navigation.

How can I do this?

Thanks

thanks number_1

sorry, I must have worded the question wrong...


I need to hide the sheets (easy enough) but then create a navigation (links or buttons) that will allow the user access to the hidden sheets 1 at a time... using VBA.

Thanks

strangely I came across that too

the syntax I need is more

sheets("sheetname").visible = 1 (visible)
sheets("sheetname").visible = 0 (hidden)

I think I can take it from here

Thanks
