I recently asked a question regarding a script for exporting from excel using a pipe as a delimiter.  The question was answered here: http://rdsrc.us/uIDJ0F and works very well.  However, I would also like to hide the first row from being exported when using the script from the other question.  Let me know if there is any easy way to leverage the existing script, to hide the first row.

Thanks!

Not a straightforward way but I'd do it by creating a temporary sheet without the first row

Sub DoTheExport()

'turn off updates to speed up code execution
With Application
    .ScreenUpdating = False
    .EnableEvents = False
    .Calculation = xlCalculationManual
    .DisplayAlerts = False
End With

ActiveSheet.Copy

ActiveSheet.Rows(1).Delete

ExportToTextFile FName:="MacSSD512:Users:byundt:Desktop:Old HP drive:VBA:Sample '14:Test.txt", Sep:="|", _
       SelectionOnly:=False, AppendData:=False

ActiveWorkbook.Close (False)

With Application
    .ScreenUpdating = True
    .EnableEvents = True
    .Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
    .DisplayAlerts = True
End With

End Sub
