    Make a Workbook into VB Program

    Hey all,

    I have created (with some great help here) a Workbook with a few sheets and
    all my formulas and functions are working great. Thanks to thoes that helped
    me.

    Now as a final step I want to make into a Program or a Macro so it does not
    look like a spreadsheet with all the toolbars, grids, row #, column #, and
    etc. Is there a easy way of doing this?

    Woody,

    Open a new workbook, add 2 command buttons, and paste the code below into
    the module. Rename your buttons or subs to match.

    It works like this. The HIDE STUFF button procedure checks all of your
    toolbars to see which ones were currently visible. My collecton has 93
    toolbars, even though I only keep a handful visible. If the toolbar is
    visible, it's name is added to a vertical list that begins in cell A1, and
    then its visible property is set to false. The scroll bars, sheet tabs and
    other stuff from the Tools/Options/View are simply recorded macro code pasted
    into the procedure. They are arbitrarily set to visible=false without seeing
    what the original state was. Alternatively, you could survey these as well
    and store the ones that were visible on the sheet. I usually keep all of
    those options on so this works fine for me. If you are going to distribute to
    many, would probably be nice to go the extra mile to be able to leave it the
    way you found it.

    The UNHIDE STUFF button procedure naturally reverses the effects of the
    HIDE STUFF button by reading the list in Column A and making all of the
    tools/options/view items visible. Of course, if there were view options you
    didn't have checked, they'll be checked now! Finally, the toolbar names are
    removed from the A column. You could adapt this to store and retrieve the
    data to wherever you want, including an external sequential file without much
    additional fuss.

    I did not see an obvious way to hide the Worksheet Menu Bar, which generates
    an error when you try to hide it using the below procedure, thus the
    exception in the code. I'm not sure if you would want to hide that anyway, or
    if it is even possible.

    I would probably keep the Hide/Unhide buttons through development, but in
    practice run the hide procedure when you open the workbook and intercept the
    close process to restore everything. I didn't have time to experiment with
    that aspect this evening, however I am working on a project that I will be
    also be making look less like Excel and more like VB, so probably after
    vacation I'll get to that. Not sure what I'll do without a computer for a
    week. Yikes!

    Oops! Forgot to pop the gridlines....

    ..DisplayGridlines = False 'to hide
    ..DisplayGridlines = True 'to unhide

    Paste in the revised With/End With loops below.
