If you don't have more than 8192 non-contiguous areas (a limit removed in Excel 2010 and later) you could use SpecialCells to return the visible cells:
NumberHiddenRows = Selection.Rows.Count - Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Rows.Count

Open in new window


If you have Excel 2007 and earlier and might have more than 8192 non-contiguous areas in your selection, then you need to loop through the selection 16000 cells at a time.
