I have a task in Excel and think it can be accomplished by a macro or two macros, written by VBA, etc. I do not know any new development of VB, such as VB script, or VB.net, etc.
The main tasks are two steps.
1. to hide all rows that with "X" in cell A. For example if A2=X, hide row 2, A34=X, hide row 34.
2. after the hiding, set the print preview for the whole area with non-empty cells.
I image it can be done with a macro and with a click of button to change the normal view to the the print preview mode.
After this is done, we can have a separate button to back to normal view. Or we can add something to the original button for switched views between normal and print preview. It does not matter whether it is two buttons or one button to have it accomplished.
