Unhide All Rows and Columns

This simple macro automatically unhides all rows and columns for you.

VBA Code

Sub UnhideAll()
    Columns.EntireColumn.Hidden = False
    Rows.EntireRow.Hidden = False
End Sub

How This Macro Works

In this macro, we call on the Columns collection and the Rows collection of the worksheet. Each collection has properties that dictate where their objects are hidden or visible. Running this macro unhides every column in the Columns collection and every row in the Rows collection.

How to Use This Macro

To use this macro, you can copy and paste it into a standard module:

  1. Activate the Visual Basic Editor by pressing ALT F11.
  2. Right-click the project/workbook name in the Project window.
  3. Choose Insert -> Module.
    Insert Module
  4. Type or paste the code in the newly created module.

    When I put this in my code, it stops the macro after hiding the cells.
    I have other commands after inserting this line, boutton it will only execute until unhiding the rows, and no more.
    Can you help

    Simon – did you paste the “End Sub” line – this ends the routine. If you have other lines after it, “End Sub” ignores them. Delete that line from that position and make sure you have it at the end of your macro.
