    unhide sheet, copy data, hide sheet - screenupdate = false

    Hi everyone,

    I am stuck a little with something I just can't find the solution to in this forum.
    I would like to:

    1.) unhide a worksheet ("HELPERSHEET" in an open (and saved) workbook
    2.) select a range from A3 to A62
    3.) Copy the data in this range
    4.) Paste this data into a .bat file
    5.) Hide the "HELPERSHEET" work sheet
    6.) Run the batch file.

    In all of this I would not like the user to see that a workbook is being unhidden, so they don't start fiddling around with it. (screenupdate = false?).

    This is what I have so far:

    I am actually quite proud of what I got so far, and it works just perfect when run from the active work sheet, where my data used to reside prior to me wanting to hide it.

    Any ideas? Do you need any further information?

    Thanks a million,

    Titus

    The user cannot actually "start fiddling around" with the sheet whilst the macro is running
    Hope that helps.
