Prevent Group display

I need Experts advice. Is a way for us not to display the vertical group (+) option when I export the attached workbook by using the "Sub moveDifFolder" module?

Just add the .Rows.Ungroup method to your worksheet.

Option Explicit

Sub moveDifFolder()
Dim wkb As Workbook
Dim newWkb As Workbook
Dim wks As Worksheet
Dim oPic As Object
Dim sPath As String
Dim fName As String
Dim fPathName As String

    Set wkb = ThisWorkbook
    sPath = "C:\temp"
    With wkb.Worksheets("Data")
    Range("AT2") = "_Issued on " & Format(Now, "mm.dd.yyyy"" @ ""hhmm")
        fName = .Range("AW1") & .Range("AV1")
        .Rows.Ungroup
    End With
    
    fPathName = sPath & "\" & fName
    
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    
    wkb.Sheets.Copy
    
    Set newWkb = ActiveWorkbook
    
    'delete pictures
    For Each wks In newWkb.Worksheets
        For Each oPic In wks.Pictures
            oPic.Delete
        Next oPic
    Next wks
            
    'clear K:Q in Data sheet
    Set wks = newWkb.Worksheets("Data")
    'wks.Range("K:Q").Clear
    
    'Call RemoveAllMacros(newWkb)
    'Save the workbook
    
    newWkb.SaveAs Filename:=fPathName & ".xls", FileFormat:=xlExcel8
    newWkb.Close
    
    
    MsgBox "Process Complete!"
End Sub

So, for row group removal:

Wks.Rows.Ungroup

and for column group removal:

Wks.Columns.Ungroup

Cheers,

Dave

Hi Dave,

The group removal need to be done at export file, not the source. Please assist.

Hi Dave,

I have tried to copy "Wks.Rows.Ungroup" at exported wb but it shows as:

Invalid or unqualified reference.


Here's the line that I've tested:

Next wks
           
    'clear K:Q in Data sheet
    Set wks = newWkb.Worksheets("Data")
    .Rows.Ungroup
    'wks.Range("K:Q").Clear

The wks.  in my example is just the variable that holds the worksheet object where you want to make the change.

You were close, but need to reference the wks object in your statement (in the previous post, you were doing a With, so I used .Rows.Ungroup.  In this instance, we can just reference the worksheet object directly (and we could have, in the prior post, as well).

Here's your modified code (See added line 36):
Option Explicit

Sub moveDifFolder()
Dim wkb As Workbook
Dim newWkb As Workbook
Dim wks As Worksheet
Dim oPic As Object
Dim sPath As String
Dim fName As String
Dim fPathName As String

    Set wkb = ThisWorkbook
    sPath = "C:\temp"
    With wkb.Worksheets("Data")
    Range("AT2") = "_Issued on " & Format(Now, "mm.dd.yyyy"" @ ""hhmm")
        fName = .Range("AW1") & .Range("AV1")
    End With
    
    fPathName = sPath & "\" & fName
    
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    
    wkb.Sheets.Copy
    
    Set newWkb = ActiveWorkbook
    
    'delete pictures
    For Each wks In newWkb.Worksheets
        For Each oPic In wks.Pictures
            oPic.Delete
        Next oPic
    Next wks
            
    'clear K:Q in Data sheet
    Set wks = newWkb.Worksheets("Data")
    wks.Rows.Ungroup
    'wks.Range("K:Q").Clear
    
    'Call RemoveAllMacros(newWkb)
    'Save the workbook
    
    newWkb.SaveAs Filename:=fPathName & ".xls", FileFormat:=xlExcel8
    newWkb.Close
    
    
    MsgBox "Process Complete!"
End Sub
