Hiding and Unhiding Rows.. Unhide does not work..

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
Processor: Intel

I use this formating feature quite often.  But, on this one worksheet which is a rather large data list (6000 Rows) I can NOT unhide rows that I have previously hidden.  It just does not work. <br><br>I have other workbooks open and I have no problem hiding and unhiding in the normal way.   <br><br>The workbook is NOT protected.  The cells are not locked. But the file was originally a windows file. <br><br>Is there some switch I do not know about?

This is possibly a rare occurrence which I've seen only 2-3 times in more 
than 20 years & I've been unable to reproduce it or determine how it 
happens. Try this:

Select a cell within the data range, then go to Data> Filter, select the 
Show All command

If that isn't it please specify your exact update level of Office & OS X in 
your reply. If you can offer any additional details about the file it may 
help. Also, can you hide/unhide rows & columns of other sheets in the

If you still have a copy of the original workbook (the one that won't unhide), it would be great you send me a copy (xinxin@microsoft.com). We will do further investigation to see how things ended up in this status. <br><br>Thanks,  <br>

Gathering and adding data from different rows
Hi all, I run a report at work every day that tells me how many shares of a company have been sold and from what year these shares were granted to the participant.

SetMessagePendingDelay not working?
I have a basic MFC app in which I call AfxOleInit and then AfxOleGetMessageFilter->SetMessagePendingDelay(-1) to disable the "Switch to..." dialogs. This eliminated the dialogs, except for one user running the program on Windows 2000 Server SP4. Are there any other settings which would override this method call? Why would only one user still get the dialogs?
