How to do move specific cell data to another worksheet in MS Excel

Dear Experts,

I have a row of data with hidden columns. I want to create VBA code tied to a check box event that will move data in specific cells in the same row the check box was select to another row in the worksheet. I have code to move an entire row then delete the row but the hidden values come over as well. I just need the visible cell values to move over.

Ideas?

This is a student assessment system and once the students finish the assessments I have an exit column with a checkbox object. What I would like is when the user checks the box the student is removed from the row and moved over to the "Exited Students" sheet.

Thanks!

An example using Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Select

I hid column C

Range("A3:F3").Select
Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Select
Selection.Copy
Sheets("Sheet2").Activate
Range("A1").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste

I found some code that works great but copies in the hidden cells:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    Dim LR As Long
    LR = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

    If Flag = True Then Exit Sub
    If Not Intersect(Target, Range("L6:L" & LR)) Is Nothing Then
        If Target.Value = "Complete" Then

            LR = Sheets("Exited Students").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1
            Target.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Copy
            'Target.EntireRow.Copy    'replaced this line with the one above
            Sheets("Exited Students").Range("A" & LR).PasteSpecial
            Flag = True
            Target.EntireRow.Delete
        End If
    End If
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    Flag = False
End Sub

Open in new window


I would like to use with the statement you provided "Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Select
" gettting only the visible cells but when I use the code above I get the following error message:

Run-time error '1004':

Cannot change part of the merged cell.

So I do not think I am integrating the syntax correctly.
