How to hide rows based on cell value in Excel?

Supposing you have a range of data, and you want to hide the rows based on a column value, for instance, if the cell value of the column is smaller than 3000, then hide the row of the cell as below screenshot shown.

In Excel, you can use the Filter function to filter and hide the rows based on cell value.

1. Select the data you want to filter out, and click Data > Filter. See screenshot:

doc hide rows based on value 2

2. Then click on the down arrow to display the filter drop down list, and click Number Filters (or Text Filters) > Greater Than (you can choose other criterion you need from the submenu). See screenshot:

3. In the popping dialog, type the criterion into the textbox next to is greater than. See screenshot:

4. Click OK. Now the only the data greater than 3000 is shown, and the rows whose data is smaller than 3000 are hidden.

Moreover, if you are interested in VBA code, here I can introduce a VBA code to hide rows based on cell value.

1. Press Alt + F11 keys to enable Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Then click Insert > Module to open a new Module window, and paste below VBA code into it.

VBA: Hide rows based on cell value.

Sub HideRow()
'Updateby20150618
Dim Rng As Range
Dim WorkRng As Range
Dim xNumber As Integer
On Error Resume Next
xTitleId = "KutoolsforExcel"
Set WorkRng = Application.Selection
Set WorkRng = Application.InputBox("Range", xTitleId, WorkRng.Address, Type:=8)
xNumber = Application.InputBox("Number", xTitleId, "", Type:=1)
For Each Rng In WorkRng
    Rng.EntireRow.Hidden = Rng.Value < xNumber
Next
End Sub

3. Then press F5 key to run the VBA, then select the data range you want to hide rows into the popping dialog (excluding headers). See screenshot:

doc hide rows based on value 6

4. Click OK, and type the criterion number into the second dialog. See screenshot:

doc hide rows based on value 7

5. Click OK. Now the rows whose data is smaller than 3000 are hidden.

Tip: If you want to hide rows which are greater than 3000, just change Rng.EntireRow.Hidden = Rng.Value < xNumber to Rng.EntireRow.Hidden = Rng.Value > xNumber, or if you want to hide rows whose data is equal to 3000, change to Rng.EntireRow.Hidden = Rng.Value = xNumber.


IF you do not like to enable Filter function, neither to VBA, here I introduce you a handy tool – Select Specific Cells of Kutools for Excel to quickly select entire rows based on cell value, then you can hide them.

2. In the Select Specific Cells dialog, check Entire row under Selection type section, then select the criterion you need from Specific type list, then type the number or text into the textbox. See screenshot:

doc hide rows based on value 9

3. Click Ok > OK to close dialogs. Now the rows whose data is smaller than 3000 are selected, and you just need to right click at the row header to show the context menu, and click Hide. See screenshot:

Now the rows whose data is smaller than 3000 are hidden.
