    Hiding the application window (xl 2003)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers,

    Is there a way that you can write VBA code to hide the application window.

    What I am looking for is to have a panic button so that when needed I can secure the application by minimizing it and removing the application window from the task bar so that no one can get to it.

    And then definitely the code to bring it up. <img src=/S/shy.gif border=0 alt=shy width=15 height=15>

    I am not too concerned about the Task Manager's window, at least at this time.

    Thanks

    Hi Wassim

    I am giggling to myself about the idea of "hiding" a window quickly....the type of knowledge my daughter would love to have when I catch her on MSN late at night <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Is this a starter for you:
