Default using vba to hide rows in a table

Hi All,

I've got a question: How can I hide table rows using vba?

I've the following table:

--------------------------------------------------
| row1 | header |
--------------------------------------------------
| row2 | O hide_line_3 |
| | O hide_line_5 |
--------------------------------------------------
| row3 | O hide_line_4_and_5 |
--------------------------------------------------
| row4 | Text abcd |
--------------------------------------------------
| row5 | Text defg |
--------------------------------------------------

Where the O's are option buttons.

So in the on change event of hide_line_3 I want to show/hide line 3.
So in the on change event of hide_line_5 I want to show/hide line 5.
So in the on change event of hide_line_4_and_5 I want to show/hide line
4_and_5.

I tried already to make the heights 0, but it will mix up the format of the
other rows with the option buttons...

Any ideas? Every sugestion is welcome!!

Thanks!

Hi Jan,

Word has no 'hide' row function and you can't actually make the row heights
= 0 either, though you can come close to it. Depending on what you're trying
to achieve, you might need to delete the offending row(s).

Cheers

Hi ?B?SmFu?=,

: How can I hide table rows using vba?

If you format the entire row as "hidden" (Format/Font) the
row will disappear (assuming you disallow display of things
formatted hidden in Tools/Options/View (or VBA equivalent))
