I am currently using this code below to hide columns H and M on the Cartoworkflow sheet. I would also like to hide column G on a worksheet called "NEW_Procedures" located in the same workbook. I tried to just add a line in the code below, but am getting an error message.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
    Sheets("Cartoworkflow").Columns("h:h").ColumnWidth = 0
    Sheets("Cartoworkflow").Columns("m:m").ColumnWidth = 0
    If WorksheetFunction.CountA(Sheet8.Cells) = 0 Then
        InitCopyRow
    End If
End Sub

Please advise...thanks!

Hi,

pls try

    Sheets("Cartoworkflow").Range("h:h,m:m").ColumnWidth = 0
    Sheets("NEW_Procedures").Range("g:g").ColumnWidth = 0

Open in new window


if you get an error pls verify the Sheets names for blank spaces or other typing errrors.

Regards

Could you send a dummy example

EDIT

What is the text of the error and where does the code stop?

Columns("G:G").Select
Selection.EntireColumn.Hidden = True

Rgonzo, since you answered first I'll respond to your questions before trying other solutions offered..

I get a run-time error 1004
Unable to set the ColumnWidth property of the Range class

When I click on debug the following line is highlighed in yellow:

Sheets("NEW_Procedures").Range("g:g").ColumnWidth = 0

Due to the confidentiality and complexity of the workbook I haven't had the time to create a dummy yet. I'm hoping to find someone that can offer a solution without going that route, but understand that may not be possible, in which case I'll follow up...

Sorry to have taken so long to close this question. The spreadsheet was undergoing some substantive structural changes and I've been waiting on input. Upon completion of the changes, I tried this solution and it worked perfectly. Thanks!
