Question : Hidden rows won’t unhide
Here’s a strange one…
I have a 2007 xlsx file from a client. I use 2003, so I use the converter to open the file and work on it. The file opens without problems in my Excel 2003. The problem I run into is that I can see that rows 66 thru 70 are hidden and I’m not able to unhide them.
I asked the client to unhide them in her Excel 2007 and then send the file again, but she can’t unhide them either. This is a file she inherited from a person who is now gone and she doesn’t know why/when the rows were hidden. The worksheet is not protected.
Is there something that I’m not aware of that is preventing these rows from being unhidden? How can I change it?
I’ll clean out the data so the client won’t mind if attach the file here.
Solution: Hidden rows won’t unhide
Turn off the Auto Filter. You cannot unhide rows that are filtered.
