My Worksheet uses Hyperlinks to open files. I want to have another cell in this Worksheet incremently report the number of times that the Hyperlink is used to open a file, like a Web Style "Hit" Counter.
I inserted a hyperlink into a cell that goes to a web page. It works when the sheet is NOT protected, as soon as I protect the sheet it stops working. How do can I lock the workbook and that cell so nobody can change it but the hyperlink still work?
I am using Excel 2010 and I have a password protected workbook with password protected sheets that uses several macros. Most of them, in order to run, have to un-protect the sheet and then re-protect it again. This has been accomplished easily enough by adding ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:= "mypassword" and ActiveSheet.Protect Password:= "mypassword" to the appropriate places in the script. All of my macros, which do various things like sorting and moving data, deleting blank rows, displaying dialog boxes containing warning messages etc. run fine.
My problem is this: when I password protect the sheets manually, I have checked the following options in the "Protect Sheet" dialog box. Under "Allow users of this worksheet to" I have checked 1)Select unlocked cells and 2)Format cells. After entering my password and closing the dialog box my sheet is protected, but I can edit cells in the manner my allowances permit. However, once I run any of the macros that un-protect and re-protect the sheet, I remain able to select and edit unlocked cells (practically, for my purposes, this means that I can input data which will appear in the default font size and color of the sheet) but I cannot format cells (which, practically, for my purposes would allow me to occasionally change the font color and size of the data). Naturally, after running a macro, the other cell-formatting options are unavailable to me as well. Is there any way to get my manual selections to remain in place after running a macro that functions as mine do? Or is there any way to make my manual selections the default settings for a protected sheet?
I have spent ages creating a work diary and have protected the sheets using VBA however on finishing the sheet one important thing that needs to happen is the ability to copy and paste information from the boxes to another worksheet. i.e MONDAY - SUNDAY
Does anyone know if there is a way to unprotect a sheet. The person who created this spreadsheet no longer works for our company and although we can see the spreadsheet, the formulas are hidden so we can't figure out where the data is being pulled in from. Any ideas?
You insert a yes or no click buttons into your excel document. There are some many yes button's clicked and so many no buttons clicked. Can you get excel to determine how many yes and no buttons are clicked and give a percentage?
I have a workbook whose worksheets use protection (don't want my calculations stomped on).
When the Protection is on, the search function does not work. You call it up, write what you are looking for, it accepts it, and then when you tell it to search it ignores you.
When you turn the protection off, the search function works just fine.
HOWEVER....Other workbooks I have with protection on its sheets do not share this problem, just this one workbook. And the problem is on all sheets in this workbook. The problem is not on any of the sheets in the other workbooks. I can't see anything different between them, but then I may not know what to look at.
Q1. How can we insert new rows in a protected sheet?
For example: In the attached sample protected excel sheet "insert rows.xlsx" , if for Employee ID and Name fields, the user has more no. of records than provided, how can he insert new rows considering the fact that Company ID and Name field are locked.
Or any way to address this issue via some other method like adding a scrollbar,etc.
I've locked certain columns on my worksheet so that users cannot overtype target dates etc. I've password protected the worksheet.
The password protection means that for some reason the users can't use the autofilters that are on the header row.
Can someone help me solve this problem; I still need the locked cells and password protection on the sheet but the success of the sheet depends on users being able to filter for specific rows using the autofilter....
When I protect my sheet and have the option to allow the users to autofilter the sheet, how come it doesn't work? I want to allow people to autofilter the data in the worksheet but not modify the contents of the cell.
I am looking for VBA code that will unprotect the Workbook, prompt the user for the number of rows to be added, find the last row in the Worksheet, insert the requested number and reprotect the Worksheet. I would like the location where the rows are inserted to NOT be dependent on the "active" cell.
I have 1 button that opens 1 workbook within a sheet. How can I give a person that clicks 1 button a choice between 3 macros? So I have 3 macros in a sheet that open different workbooks. The problem is I don't have room to make 3 buttons... so I was thinking if there is a way to press 1 button and get 3 options, that would be cool! Also, I don't think someone would identify the document by the name of the macro because I have a foul way of naming my mac's. Click one button and see a message like "Would you like to open Button1 Button2 Button3" something like this!
I have this workbook and any other workbook open, but this workbook is not active. I click the X to shut down Excel. It calls the Workbook_BeforeClose event, then asks if I want to save my work (as it should). I select "Save All" and the shut down is aborted.
It never makes it to the Workbook_BeforeSave event.
I then click the X a second time, and I'm not prompted to save but the shut down proceeds with saving all and then closing Excel.
==> Why does it require a second click of the X?
If this workbook is active, all works fine.
I've commented out all event code. Didn't help.
I've deleted my commandbar menu before attempting to close.
The order in which the workbooks were opened doesn't matter.
What might I be doing in VB to cause this behavior?
The code changes the cell color depending on how many clicks you give it. The code it self works fantastic but the problem i have is if i manually unlock the sheet every time i click any where in sheet it locks it again.
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) On Error GoTo Error Dim I As Integer, I1 As Integer, ws1 As Worksheet
Set ws1 = Worksheets("36hr Plan") ws1.Unprotect "muppeticity"
I1 = 40 For I = 5 To 25 Step 5 For I1 = 22 To 204 Step 13 Offset1 = 0 If Not Intersect(Target, ws1.Cells(I1, I)) Is Nothing _ Or Not Intersect(Target, ws1.Cells(I1 + 1, 5)) Is Nothing _ Or Not Intersect(Target, ws1.Cells(I1 + 2, 5)) Is Nothing Then.............
Is there a way of counting mouse clicks on an active XL cell and displaying the real time count in the cell, in essence giving a click count? Or in the case of a handheld, tapping an active cell and having the value incrementally increase with each tap...
I have a protected sheet to avoid delete of functions. In a specific area, however, i have merged cells of five columns in rows. Because in these lines i have write some text and overcomes the rows, after, what i do is: i unmerge the rows and choose 3 rows from 5 columns together and merge. Thus, the text is in one framework. In fact, every time, i want to merge different regions, but always i want to merged any areas who have marked with the mouse. Then, i delete the text and i need to redo the context of three lines, three separate lines. I hope you understand what i need.MergeAndUnMerge.xlsm
I am working on an excel table in my worksheet contains formulas and locked cells. lets say table range is from column "a" to "f" and there is formula on cell in columns "c" and "f". I just locked cells in column "c" and "f" to prevent people changing the formula accidentally. but when the sheet is protected i am not able to insert or delete rows as the rows has locked cells in columns "c" and "f".
I tried the below macro to unlock the sheet, insert row and lock the sheet again:
So by running the macro it asks the password and do the job but the issue is it needs password and i do not want people to know my password. I don't want them able to unlock the workbook and make any undesired changes. I want them to be allowed insert or delete rows and input data in unlocked cell. I want the sheet to be locked all the time and only when people want to insert or delete a row it be unlocked and be locked again after inserting or deleting whit no need to insert password in this case only.
