Delete Hidden Tabs or Sheets From Your Spreadsheet

What This VBA Code Does

This VBA code will run through all the tabs in your workbook and remove any worksheets that are hidden. After the macro has run, it will let you know how many sheets were deleted from the workbook.

NOTE: This code will not remove "Very Hidden" worksheets (I assume sheets that are very hidden were done so because they are important to the spreadsheet's functionality).

Sub DeleteHiddenSheets()
'PURPOSE: Remove any hidden sheets from the active workbook
'NOTE: This macro skips over Very Hidden sheets

Dim Removals As Long

'Turn Off Alerts
  Application.DisplayAlerts = False

'Loop Through Each Sheet in Workbook
  For Each sht In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
    'Test if Sheeet is Hidden
      If sht.Visible = xlSheetHidden Then
        Removals = Removals + 1
      End If
  Next sht

'Turn Alerts Back On
  Application.DisplayAlerts = True

'Report How Many Were Removed
  If Removals = 1 Then
    MsgBox "[1] sheet was removed from this workbook."
    MsgBox "[" & Removals & "] sheets were removed from this workbook."
  End If

End Sub
