How to hide or unhide a specific worksheet based on cell value in another sheet?

Are there any methods for us to hide or unhide a specific worksheet tab based on a cell content in another sheet? For example, when I enter the text “Yes” in the cell G1 of Sheet2, I want the Sheet1 to be hidden, and when I enter “No”, the Sheet1 to be displayed at once. How could I solve this problem in Excel?

To hide or unhide a specific worksheet tab based on a cell value in another worksheet, the following VBA code may do you a favor, please do as follows:

1. Go the worksheet which contains the cell value you want to hide another sheet based on.

2. Right click the sheet tab, and select View Code, in the popped out Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, please copy and paste the following code into the blank Module window, see screenshot:

VBA code: Hide or hide a worksheet tab based on cell value:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If [G1] = "Yes" Then
Sheets("Sheet1").Visible = True
Else
Sheets("Sheet1").Visible = False
End If
End Sub

doc hide tab based on cell value 1

Note: In the above code, G1 and Yes are the cell and cell content that you want to base on, and Sheet1 is the specific sheet that you want to hide or unhide. You can change them to your need.

3. Then save and close this code, when you enter “No” or other text in cell G1, Sheet1 is hidden, but if you enter “Yes” in the cell, Sheet1 is displayed at once, see screenshots:

Hello
Thank you for the tip. I need to do the same scenario but not on one cell only (G1 in this case) but on all cells of column G. I have tried with "Range" but it didn't work.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Range("X2:X100") = "" Then
Sheets("EU TASK BASED MEASUREMENTS").Visible = False
Else
Sheets("EU TASK BASED MEASUREMENTS").Visible = True
End If
End Sub


Thank you in advance

Any chance this was answered? I am also running into this scenario where a whole range comes into play instead of just one cell... I used this same coding with the same results.

I did 2 worksheets as follows:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If [C20] = "Yes" Then
Sheets("sheet1").Visible = True
Else
Sheets("sheet1").Visible = False
End If
If [C22] = "Yes" Then
Sheets("sheet2").Visible = True
Else
Sheets("sheet2").Visible = False
End If
End Sub

Very helpful!

I want to see if you can help with my issue. I've had essentially this exact code in a sheet I use but with an or function so the answer can be "yes" or "true". However, the sheet that is being hidden/unhidden sometimes re-hides itself for unknown reasons. It will unhide when I type yes, but when I go to use it later on it is hidden again, even though the cell value is still yes. Any idea why this might be happening, and/or how to fix it?
Code for reference:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)'Hides/unhides Calibration page
If [B18] = "Yes" Or Target.Value = "True" Then
Sheets("XXX Verification").Visible = True
Else
Sheets("XXX Verification").Visible = False
End If

HiI have a workbook with multiple named tabs linked to an index sheet at the front. The user can select the sheets they want to use by checking a box next to the sheet name - blank, N/A or Yes (dropdown list). Is there a way of adapting this code so that the sheet is visible if the check box is blank or contains "Yes" but not visible if the checkbox contains "N/A".
I have tried but do not know enough about VBA to make it work. Thanks

I am looking to hide or unhide sheets based on a cell value (Yes/No). The values are in a table (tblFileContents) and column D4:D25 and the sheet name is in A4:A25 on sheet <File Content>. The order of the items can be changed. Do you have a reference to an example that would allow me to do this?

I have the same issue and someone else provided a solution.
Make a table (format as table) with 2 columns, name the left column Sheets to show/hide, the right column is up  to you.Put all sheet names in left column
Then select View Code for this tab and enter Dim Changed As Range, c As Range, rMTS As Range
Dim i As Long
Dim bShowAll As Boolean

Set rMTS = Range("TblShowHide[Mark to Show]")
Set Changed = Intersect(Target, rMTS)
If Not Changed Is Nothing Then
bShowAll = Len(rMTS.Cells(1).Value) > 0
On Error Resume Next
For i = 2 To rMTS.Rows.Count
Sheets(Range("TblShowHide[Show/Hide Sheets]").Cells(i).Value).Visible = IIf(bShowAll, True, Len(rMTS.Cells(i).Value) > 0)
Next i
On Error GoTo 0
End If
End Sub

Hi Jean,
yes I have an example I attached here. Rename the file to example.xlsm (it is not zipped, but had to rename to upload)
On the menu tab there is a table with the various tab names, make an x or any other character to show the tab, if you remove the character, the tab hides.
Hope that helps

I want to have a Menu/Table of Contents as my first worksheet and based on Yes/No answers - certain worksheets appear i.e. more than 1 becomes visible.
I'm struggling to have several worksheets appear based on the above code.
Can I use an AND function e.g. If X cell = "Yes" Then Make Y Sheet visible and Z Sheet and K Sheet?
Any advice greatly welcomed.
Regards
Helen

А я вот не могу понять, как такое сделать в гугл таблицах именно?

Hello friend,

You can open a new Google sheet, add a new sheet so that there is a "Sheet1" and a "Sheet2" then go to Tools > Script Editor. In the editor, paste the following.

function myFunction() {
var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
var sheet1 = ss.getSheetByName("Sheet1");
var sheet2 = ss.getSheetByName("Sheet2");

var cell1 = sheet1.getRange('B2');

if (cell1.getValue() == 2) {
sheet2.hideSheet();
}

if (cell1.getValue() == 3) {
sheet2.showSheet();
}
}

Please have a try.

Sincerely,
Mandy

This code works great, However I have 42 variables for 70 sheets so this code gets very long and stops working. Is there a way to make this code in sections as to not exceed the code size that VBA can handle? Or do I have to divide these into two separate excels?
