Hi everyone!

I am interested in finding the link in these forums(I couldn't find it) that could help me with this scenario.

1) I am trying to open an Excel file in a "hidden" status RIGHT AFTER a different program executes/opens. I only need that Excel file to open "once". Then, I need to have that Excel file "close" when the program closes.

Again, I looked, but I couldn't find.

Thanks,

-P

at the top right corner of this page,

press the "search" button,

click "more search options" then

type in "Excel" then

click "Example Scripts" in the drop-down list

click the radio "search titles only"

click "preform the search"

This will give you a list of Excel scripts/UDF's

Thank you, but I looked there and if my initial look was correct, I didn't see anything that was similar to what I was looking for. I have a similar macro program that will make the file "hide", but it will "flash" the excel file while it's trying to hide it. i need the Excel file to be completely hidden and open/close only when the "parent" program is operating.

Thanks, but I looked there.

I re-read the posts in the Excel forum, I will give it a shot and see if I could do this. Not having a computer background in the technical language sometimes makes it hard to understand. I hope it doesn't take a day to figure out what might be so simple.

Thanks Valuater!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If I get stuck, I would assume that no question is too dumb?

EDIT: maybe you should edit the topic and put " Excel help request" in the sub-title spot
