Apply Password Protection For Different Worksheets In Single Excel Workbook
Apr 2, 2012
I used VBA codes to apply different passwords for different worksheets in a single excel workbook. They worked fine. Then i applied a password to the VBA code itself through the VBA project properties. Also worked.
But my problem is that, if any one enters a wrong password to open any of the worksheets, the VBA will open an error message window and when "end" option is clicked, the VBA code will open without any prompt for the password.Thus the entire purpose is defeated.
I use the following piece of code to show/hide certain worksheets in a workbook. To access the hidden sheets, a command button runs the code. It works very well, except that the password is openly displayed in the message box (as opposed to returning asterisks for the typed characters). Is there a way of achieving this?
Sub togglesheets() 'This asks for a password before show / hide data sheets will work
Dim Ws As Worksheet Dim strPassword As String strPassword = InputBox("Enter Password") If strPassword "Password" Then MsgBox "Wrong Password": Exit Sub
'This will toggle show / hide the data sheets Application.ScreenUpdating = False For Each Ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets If Ws.Name = "Apr-Sep" And Ws.Visible = xlSheetVisible Then Ws.Visible = xlSheetVeryHidden
ElseIf Ws.Name = "Apr-Sep" And Ws.Visible = xlSheetVeryHidden Then Ws.Visible = xlSheetVisible End If
If Ws.Name = "Oct-Mar" And Ws.Visible = xlSheetVisible Then Ws.Visible = xlSheetVeryHidden..........
I am trying to change a password on a workbook. I have already gone to encrypt document and changed the password. However, when I open the workbook again, my new password works but another popup shows and asks me for another password for write access. That second password was my original password, and I don't know how to change that.
I am trying to use the status of Conditional Formatting to toggle on/off protection for a cell.
I have a cell with Conditional Formatting applied if the result of a formula is true. If the Conditional Formatting is applied, I want the cell protection turned on so a user can not change the entry in the cell. If Conditional Formatting is not applied (false), cell protection is turned off and the user may edit.
I have a 2010 excel workbook with several locked worksheet (to which I manage the PW). I and another staff member manage different section of the macro but the other staff member doesn't have access to the locked areas.
Is there a way I can encrypt the password within VBA so it's not visible to the other staff member?
Locking the VBAProject doesn't work as the other staff member has to be able to edit his VBA section.
Many staff run the macro (via a button) and don't need to access the Macro and don't have access to the protected sheets.
I understand excel isn't ideal with PW protection for people wanting to bypass the protection and this isn't an issue.
I recorded a macro in an Excel Workbook which contains 65 worksheets (--this is something received on a quarterly basis for which I have no control). The macro is successful within the workbook created however, a new quarter's data may or maynot have some of the referenced worksheets. 64.9 Waiv - 1 may exists and the others (2, 3, 4, etc) not. The macro fails and prompts for Debug if a worksheet does not exist.
So right now the macro is run in every single worksheet in the workbook. Unfortunately, it appears the TRIM function erases formulas in cells. I want this macro to apply only to certain worksheets. Say the worksheets i want the macro to run on are named A1-A100.
When opening a new Excel file, it is asking me for a password to an old excel file that was password protected, which I have deleted from my computer. It is still asking for this password every time I open a new or existing file. When I hit cancel it lets me open the file.
Use filter for 2 columns of a CSV file, column A and Column B for certain words. Say I apply a text filter: contains "word1" or contains "word2" to Column A. Then I get the results. After that, I remove the filter to Column A then apply the same filter to Column B. The thing is, I don't get the results in Column B, instead, I get the cells in Column A wherein Column B is filtered PHOTOS BELOW:
The data that I get for this filter are: And Word1 you Word2 is blank
Apply filter to Column B, get the cells filtered in Column A:
The data that get for this filter are from Column A (which are cells filtered from Column B filter) And Word1 you Is the blah Word is all
The results should in a single Column for both filter:
I have more than 100 files that needs to filtered this way, is there any way I can do this automatically?
Here is what the file looks like:
The results I hope would be possible:
Automatically without having to open all the files and have the results of all of it in 1 single Excel file?
If the above is not possible, open each file and automatically apply the filter into a column in just 1 click and without having to type the same filter for each column.
I found a code to combine all CSV files into 1 Excel file, but half of my files has more than 500k rows and the Excel's limit for rows is around 1million+.
I use the following piece of code to show/hide certain worksheets in a workbook. To access the hidden sheets, a command button runs the code. It works very well, except that the password is openly displayed in the message box (as opposed to returning asterisks for the typed characters).
Sub togglesheets() Dim Ws As Worksheet Dim strPassword As String strPassword = InputBox("Enter Password") If strPassword "Password" Then MsgBox "Wrong Password": Exit Sub Application.ScreenUpdating = False For Each Ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets If Ws.Name = "Apr-Sep" And Ws.Visible = xlSheetVisible Then Ws.Visible = xlSheetVeryHidden
ElseIf Ws.Name = "Apr-Sep" And Ws.Visible = xlSheetVeryHidden Then Ws.Visible = xlSheetVisible End If..............
I have tried Tools/Options/Security Password to modify, but it can still be saved as a copy to the network which becomes very confusing to many. If I use Tools/Potect Sheet, I need to re-enter the password for all sheets twice. I am trying have it so that everyone is read only, select people can edit (with same password). Password protect all sheets and the workbook with the same password everytime when the workbook is closed
Basically 2 questions
1) Is there a way of remembering a password so that when the workbook is closed it and all sheets are automatically protected with the same password every time
2) Is it possible to have it not copied unless it is opened by an editor
I have a macro that needs to unprotect the sheet before it does what it needs to do. The sheet has a password (i.e. it is not just protected). the macro runs fine but when I go back to the sheet and try to unprotect it, no password is required. simply clicking on Unprotect works and I am nopt prompted for the password in the macro.
I realise that they are not the most secure things anyway but the people who are going to using this will mess around enough to try and unprotect the sheet but if they were to be promted for the password they would stop looking.
I have a spreadsheet that was given to me, which I used as a template. It already had password protection in it for each worksheet, and the macros are also written to unprotect before performing the actions, the re-protect at the end. Everything works fine except I cannot change the password. The thing is is that the password in the macro code is not the same as the actual password which you have to type in when unprotecting the worksheets.
For example the password in the code is "IPP" and the password you have to actually enter into the unprotect sheet box is "AAAABBBABBB&", yet all the macros still work like this. When I attempt to unprotect the sheet (with the AAAA... code) and re-write the password codes in the macros to say "###" then re-protect the sheet with the new password and run the macros it'll work fine, but when I save and close and then re-open the password required to unprotect the sheet reverts back to the "AAAABBB...." and then the macros stop working because the passwords don't match (even though they didn't match before!!!)
There is no encryption password or workbook password as far as I can tell, only the worksheet protection. Why cannot I no get the password changed?
Is there a way users can be prompted for a password when a tab is clicked? if wrong or no password is entered, then show sheet 1 only. 1 main sheet, and 10 sub sheets. Any of the 10 tabs that get clicked need to be prompted for a password, each different.
I have a payroll spreadsheet that is going to be placed on our network server. My boss wants me to have this spreadsheet to be protected so that one person can get in, add hours and commission, and save it up on the server. Then another person can go in to that spreadsheet, open it up to get the info and use it to cut the checks. What my problem is that the person who is making the changes does not need to see the pay rate or the total dollar amount columns, but the person who gets the data out does. Neither one of these people really know how to hide and unhide columns in Excel, so I need it to have when one password opens it, the pay rate and total pay columns are hidden, but the other password will show those columns.
Is there a tool that can make an Excel application behave like a “real” software? Meaning, the user will still be able to do what I planned for him to do with the file, BUT it will be very difficult for the more-than-average user to “crack” any password protections I have applied to the file? (Something like an MDE file in Access, perhaps?) The reason I am asking is because I have invested a lot of time and efforts into creating an application that I wish to sell to some of my clients, and don’t want them to easily find their way into the formulas and macros I have placed in the file.
The protection tool does not have to be an Excel tool, necessarily, but it should not require any programming skills (because I don’t have them. If there isn’t such a tool? My application contains User Forms (for input), a Database (with Auto Filters and formulas) and some Pivot Table reports. BTW, my application was created in Excel 2003 but should also be used by users with Excel 2007.
I have a workbook where I need to protect the sheets with a password. However, for certain macros contained in the workbook to run the sheets need to be unprotected. I know the code to unprotect the sheet but the password is required. I do not want other users to know this password.
What I need is the code to protect a worksheet with a password. Then, when a macro runs, to unprotect without user having to enter the password and reprotect with the original password when the macro has completed its run. note: I am NOT looking for any form of password breaking code!!
The spreadsheet basically copies data by looking in all workbooks in different folders (27 in total) and copies the data across. The only problem is that it keeps asking for the password on all of the spreadsheets when it is opening up the files (all have the same password) - how do I get the code to "know" the code and bypass asking for it?
