    Webpage folder (Excel 2003)

    Hi all

    Currently I am saving a bunch of Excel workbooks and sheets to a folder on a main drive, when a save is complete as a webpage, there is a secondary folder that is created to hold all of the graphics with that webpage(not sure of the name of the folder, or what it would be called) my question is, is it possible to hide the folder that contains all of the graphics?

    Can is be done within code?

    Thanks Darryl.

    You can't very well hide a folder if you don't know its name, can you?
    Moreover, anyone can tell Explorer to display hidden files and folders - this is one of the first things I set on any PC I work on. So hiding a folder is not very useful.

    Thanks Hans,

    I know that you can unhide any folder that you want to, the name of the folder will be exactly the same name as the Excel Webpage, I didn't know if there was a general name for a folder that contains all the graphics for that webpage. The prupose of hiding those sub folders is to clean up the folder.

    Thanks,
    Darryl.

    My point was that I and many other Windows users specify that Windows Explorer should display all hidden files and folders (this is a setting in the View tab of Tools | Folder Options), so it doesn't matter whether you hide the folder or not - it will be listed in Windows Explorer.

    Hans: if you save-as an Excel workbook called Book1.xls as web page, Excel creates a file called book1.htm and a folder called book1_files, in the same directory as the htm file.

    Funny thing is, Win XP knows they belong to each other, as when you delete book1.htm, book1_files gets deleted too. Probably there is a setting in the registry that controls this as well.
