Create two additonal columns of formulas, suppose your original data is in
B2:B12, then in C2 enter the formula =IF(B2<=5,B2,0)
in cell D2 enter the formula =IF(B2>5,B2,0)
Copy these formulas down.

Hello all. I have a spreadsheet that is over 500 rows long. As it is I have
no use for all of the rows at the same time and have to keep hiding and
showing them as need arises. Is there a macro to hide chunks of it based on
the value of one cell of the row? In other words, en each row I will have a
formula like =if(a1=0,"HIDE","") and this value will tell the macro wether to
hide the row or not. I tried case.select but it takes a LONG time and I would
have to write a piece of code for every line. FYI, the rows that need hiding

I am working in Excel 2000 for Windows with cells that are
NOT merged. The individual cells have varying amounts of
data (anywhere from a few characters to over 1000
characters). All text is wrapped. When I double click on
the row to auto height, it adjusts the height but the
printed version still cuts off text. In most cases the row
height does not come anywhere near 409.5 pixels.
I saw the problem with bottom aligned text, but all my
cells are top aligned.

You can use conditional formatting which applies the colour using the Mod()

How do I add rows without changing cell location in the formula.
The data for the formula is always located in cell B4 and if I
add a row on top of B4, I want the formula to remain with B4.
Right now, if I add a row, the cell in the formula goes down
Hope for help
If I understand, you're adding a row higher than B4. This shifts B4 down,
but you want the "new" B4 to be the data for the formula. If this is the
case you could try this:
That is, as long as you don't add a new top row.
