    Hey Ben,
    Could you repaste the whole string of text with items #2 and #4 from your email added in? MY VBA knowledge is pretty limited and I'm not sure exactly where to add them into the For loop. My workbook has a number of hidden sheets and keeps crashing during the macro execution.

    Thanks,
    Bob
