Many thanks for all the excellent videos.  I have been using them to add to my knowledge of VBA. 

I have been using the downloaded file accompanying this video as a basis of a project for myself (personal) as a stock system for my model collection.  Many of my controls are combo boxes from standard lists.  The basic work very well, but I hit on the idea of adding an extra page containing duplicate combo boxes and using these as a basis to set filters.  This works OK and a simple subroutine filters the data in the main worksheet.  However your "NavigateToRecord" ignores the filters and displays all the hidden rows.

I have started building a single element array to hold the row numbers of the visible rows which works OK, and I am about to write a different sub to replace your navigation routine.  However I wondered of there was a slick way your routine could be made to ignore the hidden rows?  If so this could save a lot of work.

As this video is now 2 years old, not sure if you will pick this up but thanks in anticipation.

Many thanks for the response. On a quick first read it looks as if that is exactly what I need and looks to be simpler and more elegant than the changes I was planning to make.

I am currently sitting on a boat in Croatia so I won’t get a chance to give this a try until I am back home, but I will do so as soon as I can.  I hope that revisiting past code did not take up too much of your valuable time.

Once again many thanks,
