1. Right click at the sheet tab that you want to auto hide the rows if there are blank cells in a column , and then choose View Code from the context menu, in the popped out Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, please copy and paste the following code into the blank Module:

VBA code: Auto hide rows if blank cells in a column:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
'Updateby Extendoffice
    Dim xRg As Range
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
        For Each xRg In Range("A1:A20")
            If xRg.Value = "" Then
                xRg.EntireRow.Hidden = True
        
            Else
                xRg.EntireRow.Hidden = False

Can you help me with a similar problem?

I need to auto hide rows that are completely blank, in a grid like the example.

https://ibb.co/zJW8BKq

In this case, i want to hide just the rows 4, 5, 8, 10 and 13. I cant use this code because it verifies each cell in a column and i need to verifies the entire row, between columns B and I.

Thank you.

Hi, i'm having issues with the "automation" of the macro. I'm searching for a way for the code to work as an automated process without the needs of "manually" running the macro. i've been using my own variant of your code due to me finding issues to use your code. This is my variant:

Sub HideRows()
Dim xRg As Range
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
For Each xRg In Range("A3:A800")
If (xRg.Value = "") Then
xRg.EntireRow.Hidden = True
Else
xRg.EntireRow.Hidden = False
End If
Next xRg
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

I'm trying to create a spreadsheet which requires everchanging values, therefore would require a genuine "automated" procress. I'm relatively new to VBA and if your code actually already meets my requirements would you mind helping/teach me to apply it in VBA? Thanks.

Hello, Nurjanah
To solve your problem, first, you should hide the blank rows, and then print the data, after printing the data, you need unhide the blank rows again. Please do as this:
1. Apply this formula: =COUNTA(A2:E2) beside your data, see screenshot:
https://www.extendoffice.com/images/stories/comments/comment-skyyang/doc-hide-blanks-1.png
2. Then, filter the new helper Blank column, hide all 0 value rows, see screenshot:
https://www.extendoffice.com/images/stories/comments/comment-skyyang/doc-hide-blanks-2.png
3. And then, you should hide the new Blank column, and print the data, after printing the worksheet, please cancel the filter to unhide the blank rows as you need.
Please try, hope it can help you!

When executing the code in office 2013/2019/2021 it works but takes too much time to complete (only 95 rows to hide).
How can you speed this?
Thanks!

                xRg.EntireRow.Hidden = True
            Else
