Downloaded free to try and it would not unhide all the worksheets at the same time, still had to do it 1 by 1. Would love it if it worked.

I downloaded so that I could try all features before I purchased. Tried to unhide all sheets in a workbook but that option is greyed out. Consequently, I had to unhide them one by one.

I followed the following, however, it still did not open the hidden sheets. Unhide all hidden worksheets by VBA code The following short VBA code also can help you display all of the hidden sheets at the same time. 1. Hold down the Alt + F11 keys in Excel, and it opens the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window. 2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following macro in the Module Window. 12345678 Sub UnhideAllSheets() Dim ws As Worksheet For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets ws.Visible = xlSheetVisible Next ws End Sub 3. Press the F5 key to run this macro. And the hidden sheets will be displayed at once. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Make sure the 12345678 are not being copied. I didn't think I was copying them but I was getting an error because they were showing up after I ran the code. I went and deleted them (after they showed up) and re-ran the code. You will get a warning that the previous operation will be undone (or something). Just hit ok, and it should work.

This week was the first I've encountered needing to unhide many, many, many worksheets and it's frustrating that Excel doesn't have what seems to be an easy option for that! Anyway, searched for an answer and your link was in the top five....worked like a charm and I am NOT macro literate by any means! THANK YOU!
