## Hiding Rows based on a Condition

Let us assume we have 500 rows/records in a worksheet, we can loop through each row and check for a criteria and hide the rows. Let us see the verity of example with different criteria:

### Hide all rows with the text data /strings in Column A

The following example will hide all all rows with the text data /strings in Column A.

LastRow = 500 'Let's say you have 500 rows in the data For i = 1 To LastRow 'Now we loop through each row and check for required criteria 'To hide all the rows with the text data /strings in Column A If IsNumeric(Range("A" & i)) = False Then Rows(i).EntireRow.Hidden = True Next

### Hide all rows with the values as 0 in Column A

The following example will hide all all rows with the values as 0 in Column A.

LastRow = 500 'Let's say you have 500 rows in the data For i = 1 To LastRow 'Now we loop through each row and check for required criteria 'to hide all the rows with the values as 0 in Column A If Range("A" & i) = 0 Then Rows(i).EntireRow.Hidden = True Next

### Hide all rows with the negative values in Column A

The following example will hide all all rows with the negative values in Column A.

LastRow = 500 'Let's say you have 500 rows in the data For i = 1 To LastRow 'Now we loop through each row and check for required criteria 'to hide all the rows with the negative values in Column A If IsNumeric(Range("A" & i)) = True Then If Range("A" & i) < 0 Then Rows(i).EntireRow.Hidden = True End If Next

### Hide all rows with the Positive values in Column A

The following example will hide all all rows with the Positive values in Column A.

LastRow = 500 'Let's say you have 500 rows in the data For i = 1 To LastRow 'Now we loop through each row and check for required criteria 'to hide all the rows with the Positive values in Column A If IsNumeric(Range("A" & i)) = True Then If Range("A" & i) > 0 Then Rows(i).EntireRow.Hidden = True End If Next

### Hide all rows with the Even Number in Column A

The following example will hide all all rows with the Even Number in Column A.

LastRow = 500 'Let's say you have 500 rows in the data For i = 1 To LastRow 'Now we loop through each row and check for required criteria 'To hide all the rows with the Even Number in Column A If IsNumeric(Range("A" & i)) = True Then If Range("A" & i) Mod 2 = 0 Then Rows(i).EntireRow.Hidden = True End If Next

### Hide all rows with the Odd Number in Column A

The following example will hide all all rows with the Odd Number in Column A.

LastRow = 500 'Let's say you have 500 rows in the data For i = 1 To LastRow 'Now we loop through each row and check for required criteria 'To hide all the rows with the Odd Number in Column A If IsNumeric(Range("A" & i)) = True Then If Range("A" & i) Mod 2 = 1 Then Rows(i).EntireRow.Hidden = True End If Next

### Hide all rows if the value in Column A is greater than 50

The following example will hide all all rows if the value in Column A is greater than 50.

LastRow = 500 'Let's say you have 500 rows in the data For i = 1 To LastRow 'Now we loop through each row and check for required criteria 'To hide all the rows if the value in Column A is greater than 50 If IsNumeric(Range("A" & i)) = True Then If Range("A" & i) > 50 Then Rows(i).EntireRow.Hidden = True End If Next

### Hide all rows if the value in Column A is less than 100

The following example will hide all all rows if the value in Column A is less than 100.

LastRow = 500 'Let's say you have 500 rows in the data For i = 1 To LastRow 'Now we loop through each row and check for required criteria 'To hide all the rows if the value in Column A is less than 100 If IsNumeric(Range("A" & i)) = True Then If Range("A" & i) < 100 Then Rows(i).EntireRow.Hidden = True End If Next Next

LSJuly 24, 2015 at 10:23 AMIn case I want to hide a row with condition…… for eg. I have a data base with some columns having text and some having numbers. If value in one of the columns becomes 0 or a negative number or a text then that row should get hidden.

could you please automate such a task in excel ?

thanks.

PNRaoJuly 25, 2015 at 3:04 AMHi Lata,

I have updated the post with number of examples with criteria.

Thanks-PNRao!

BenAugust 7, 2015 at 8:00 PMI tried to apply the same principle to columns with the conditions in row 1, but it can’t run.

Maybe someone knows what I need to fix in the script below :

Thanks!

LastColumn = “EZ” ‘Let’s say I have columns until “EZ” in the report

For i = “A” To LastColumn ‘I want to loop through each column and check for required criteria

‘to hide all the columns with the values as 0 in Row 1

If Range(1 & i) = 0 Then Column(i).EntireColumn.Hidden = True

Next

PNRaoAugust 8, 2015 at 3:25 PMHi Ben,

For loop takes numeric values, replacing your column names with column numbers will work for you, check the below examples

Thanks-PNRao!

BenAugust 11, 2015 at 7:21 PMAwesome!! Works like a charm,

Thanks again!

patrickDecember 7, 2015 at 5:40 PMMy desire is to specific cells. I have checkboxes and command buttons sprinkled throughout the worksheet. What I like to do is to hide the cells containing these form types. Maybe I have to redesign my worksheet to have all these buttons and boxes either all in a row or a column and hide the row/column. Have not had much luck with this. Can you help please?

Avishek BoseApril 16, 2016 at 4:02 PMHey Valli,

This is my first attempt to actually write a Macro, and looks like I am stuck (Terribly Stuck)

Here is what I am trying to achieve:

I have a “Input” sheet which is linked (Via Vlookups in C:C) to 8-10 other worksheets (containing rates of materials). On a daily basis I have to insert the quantities (in Column D:D) next to the rates in the “Input” Sheet to multiply it with the corresponding rates to arrive at the total amount (in Column E:E) eventually.

The issue is I have to hide the materials (Entire Rows) I do not use in the Input sheet as well as the other reference sheets. Is there any way a macro can be written to help me?

GuyMay 9, 2016 at 4:27 PMHI PNRao,

Thanks for the great poste it really helped me, how would i loop this macro round to unhide the hidden rows when the box is unchecked?

Thanks
