Excel97 VBA: How can I count open workbooks that are not hidden?

Excel97 VBA: How can I count open workbooks that are not hidden?

Excel97 VBA: How can I count open workbooks that are not hidden?

(OP)
In a function I'm writing, I need to find the number of open workbooks, but I want to exclude those that are hidden. Please help!

Thanks
Barry

RE: Excel97 VBA: How can I count open workbooks that are not hidden?

Hi Barryg

As you probably know there is no method to count visible workbooks. However, try this routine and I hope it works


Sub VisibleWorkbooks()
'Count the number of Open Workbooks
vopenworkbooks = Application.Windows.Count
vvisible = 0
'Loop to check is the workbook hidden
For counter = 1 To vopenworkbooks
If Windows(counter).Visible = True Then vvisible = vvisible + 1
Next
MsgBox ("the Number of Workbooks open and not hidden is " & vvisible)

End Sub


Let me know how you get on!!

Regards
Monica

RE: Excel97 VBA: How can I count open workbooks that are not hidden?

(OP)
Thanks, Monica. It worked well. I was stuck because visible wasn't a valid property of the workbooks collection and I didn't know about the Windows collection. I'm very new to VBA in Excel so it's taking a while to learn to collection, properties, methods, etc.

Thanks again,
Barry
