I have the following code in an excel worksheet

Private Sub Show_Hide_Subtotal_Click()
  Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    If Show_Hide_Subtotal.Caption = "Hide Sub-total" Then
        Sheets("Projections").Select
        ActiveSheet.Range("J:J").EntireColumn.Hidden = True
        Show_Hide_Subtotal.Caption = "Show Sub-total"
    Else
       
        Sheets("Projections").Select
        ActiveSheet.Range("J:J").EntireColumn.Hidden = False
        Show_Hide_Subtotal.Caption = "Hide Sub-total"
    End If
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Hi, Apex623.

Your code is working fine for me - please see attached.

In this example, turning off screen updating doesn't make any difference, so i presume that your real version must be doing other things. Please post all the code here.

Thanks,

Sorry I meant to say that the Application.Screenupdating is not working.    It shows the sheet being selected and I do not want that to happen.   I have posted the whole spreadsheet that I am working on.    The button that executes the code is on the "Proj. Assumptions" tab.   Thanks for the posts.

Apex623,

Do you mean that you don't want the "Projections" sheet displayed? If so, then please see the attached.
