Question
Hi Tom

Could you write a line in the following piece of code that will unhide "Main" worksheet and a subsequent line to hide it before End Sub?

I have tried and failed.

Sub PeriodButtons(ByVal PeriodDate As String)

   Dim shActive    As Worksheet

   Application.ScreenUpdating = False
   Set shActive = ActiveSheet
   ' move to "Main" sheet
   Sheets("Main").Select
   
   Sheets("Main").Range("D2:F2").FormulaR1C1 = PeriodDate
   Calculate
   
   ' return to previous sheet
   shActive.Select
   Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Thanks in advance

Answer
Christopher Mitchell,


Sub PeriodButtons(ByVal PeriodDate As String)

  Dim shActive    As Worksheet

  Application.ScreenUpdating = False
  Set shActive = ActiveSheet
  ' move to "Main" sheet
  Sheets("Main").Visible = xlSheetvisible
  Sheets("Main").Select
  
  Sheets("Main").Range("D2:F2").FormulaR1C1 = PeriodDate
  Calculate
  
  ' return to previous sheet
  Sheets("Main").Visible = xlSheetHidden
  shActive.Select
  Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub
