Hide or unhide specified rows or columns when double-clicking a cell with VBA code


Hide or unhide specified rows or columns when double-clicking a cell with VBA code

The following VBA codes can help you quickly hide or unhide specified rows or columns in a worksheet by double-clicking a certain cell. Please do as follows.

1. Open the worksheet you want to hide rows or columns inside. Right-click the sheet tab and then click View Code from the context menu.

2. In the opening Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, please copy following VBA code into the Code window.

VBA: Hide/unhide specified rows by double-clicking cells in worksheet:

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
'Updateby20171226
    Dim xRgHidden As Range
    If (Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1:A4")) Is Nothing) And (Target.Count = 1) Then
        Set xRgHidden = Range("10:13")
        xRgHidden.EntireRow.Hidden = Not xRgHidden.EntireRow.Hidden
    End If
End Sub

VBA: Hide/unhide specified columns by double-clicking cells in worksheet:

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
'Updateby20171226
    Dim xRgHidden As Range
    If (Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1:A4")) Is Nothing) And (Target.Count = 1) Then
        Set xRgHidden = Range("D:E")
        xRgHidden.EntireColumn.Hidden = Not xRgHidden.EntireColumn.Hidden
    End If
End Sub

Note: In the code, A1:A4, 10:13 and D:E indicate that when double-clicking on any cell of the range A1:A4, the row 10:13 or column D:E will be hidden automatically.

3. Press the Alt + F11 keys to close the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

From now on, when double clicking any cell in range A1:A4, row 10:13 or column D:E will be hidden automatically. And double clicking the cell again to display all hidden rows or columns immediately.

This helped a lot but i'm trying to do this but everything starts hidden and hide and unhide isolated cells rather than a range? thanks!

This is very cool and extremely helpful. However, I want to repeat the same code for different sets of rows to hide when clicking on different cells. How can I use the same code multiple times in one sheet so that the code name is not the same? Thank you!

Hi,If you want to hide different sets of rows when clicking on different cells, please try to modify the cells and row numbers in below code.The below code can achieve: when double clicking A1, the row "10:13" will be hidden; when double clicking A2, the row "15:20" will be hidden, and double clicking A3 will hide row "22:23". If you want to add more conditions, please copy the code lines from If to End If and modify the cells and row numbers as you need.<div data-tag="code">Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)

Dim xRgHidden As Range
If (Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1")) Is Nothing) And (Target.Count = 1) Then
Set xRgHidden = Range("10:13")
xRgHidden.EntireRow.Hidden = Not xRgHidden.EntireRow.Hidden
End If
If (Not Intersect(Target, Range("A2")) Is Nothing) And (Target.Count = 1) Then
Set xRgHidden = Range("15:20")
xRgHidden.EntireRow.Hidden = Not xRgHidden.EntireRow.Hidden
End If
If (Not Intersect(Target, Range("A3")) Is Nothing) And (Target.Count = 1) Then
Set xRgHidden = Range("22:23")
xRgHidden.EntireRow.Hidden = Not xRgHidden.EntireRow.Hidden
End If
End Sub

This is so helpful! I'm wondering if their is anyway to be able to add additional 'hidden' rows over time without having to shift all the numbers in the code to make everything line up properly? Thanks so much!
