Hi,

I need some vba code to hide the formulas in a range of cells "A18:W118"

I have tried to protect the range using locked/hidden and then protect sheet, however my slicers stop working then

Is there a VB solution?

Many thanks
Seamus

If you just want to hide those formulas, you have to set the Hidden property and protect the sheet. You haven't indicated what the slicers are used for, or where they are.

You should do exactly what you did but in the protect Sheet also select the Edit Objects and Use PivotTable & PivotChart...
You will have the formulas hidden and also, your Slicers will work.
