I found one of your old VBA entries that allowed me to automatically refresh an autofilter function, and it works great.... with protection off.
As soon as I protect the sheet so users can't enter data into the pages showing the autofiltered data, the autofilter kicks off.
i have set the protection to allow autofiltering, so it's something that is preventing the macro (for automatically updating/refreshing the autofilter).
I'd love to either fix the macro to "autorefresh autofilter" with protection on, or just enter another code that will disable all functionality on the worksheet. (workbook is set up with multiple sheets, first sheet is for all data entry, subsequent sheets are filtered data-trying to make them viewable only).
I have a summary sheet that pulls data from several worksheets. I have a filter on column I that hides all rows that have zero values in that column. Once I protect the sheet I cannot get the filter to update as the source data changes. I have tried other macros from forums but I cannot get them to work. I would like the filter to update every time that the workbook is calculated.
It is my understanding that the autofilter should still work on a protected sheet, but despite all of my efforts I have not been able to make this work. I have tried adjusting the settings on the protection to allow filters, formatting, and everything else I could think of all to no avail.
What am I missing here? This is the same on several different spreadsheets that I have put together.
I have an autofilter set up that hides all rows with 0 in the first column. This information is automaticaly filled in from information on another sheet. Using a worksheet code from a previous thread I have got all the worksheets to automatically refresh which is great.
Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
If Me.FilterMode = True Then With Application .EnableEvents = False . ScreenUpdating = False End With
With ActiveWorkbook .CustomViews.Add ViewName:="Mine", RowColSettings:=True Me.AutoFilterMode = False .CustomViews("Mine").Show .CustomViews("Mine").Delete End With
The issue I have is that there are 52 worksheets (it's a weekly rota) and if any change is made anywhere on the sheet, all the worksheets then refresh which takes just over a minute (about 40 changes need to be made each day).
Does anyone know if there is a way that the information will only refresh on all sheets if changes are made in colums A? as this is the only information that is taken through to other sheets. Or is there another way of doing this?
I have a sheet named "Risk Register" and another named "Outside Residual Risk Threshold". I need an event macro on the worksheet "View code" section, so that any time a value changes in column AF on "Risk Register", the filter on rows 8:39 in "Outside Residual Risk Threshold" is refreshed. Both sheets are protected.
The code I tried in the "view code" or "Outside Residual Risk Threshold" was as below...
I read your reply to the thread below, and used your Worksheet_Calculate routine from it. It only works for the first sheet in my workbook. I have multiple sheets in the workbook, and when I run the routine on an activesheet other than the first sheet in the workbook, it doesnt work.
Is there a way to get this routine to work on a worksheet other than the first one in the book?
My Excel spreadsheet is linked to an Access database to Get external Data. When the data is periodically refreshed ,while the spreadsheet is open, I need to automatically detect it so that a macro can be run each time to format the new data. The Excel data is not a pivot table. The spreadsheet is for display of data only (no user updating).
I see some code on the forum on how to automatically refresh pivot tables in excel. I know to press alt + f11, but where do I go from there to put the code in? Also, what if I have several pivot tables in the spreadsheet, is there anyway to refresh all of them automatically?
I have 2 drop downs that when changed, auto refresh all pivot tables. My problem is getting the columns to auto-adjust based on the refresh or change of the data in the pivot table. Listed below the code I have thus far for the auto-refresh on pivot tables. How to auto expand all columns simultaneously.
The pivot tables are based off of tables on a different sheet(TOS Tables). So the code listed below is in the table sheet, not the pivot table sheet (TOS Customer Level). So followup question will be, which sheet to put the auto-expand columns code?
VB: Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate() 'If data on this worksheet changes, refresh the pivot table Sheets("TOS Customer Level").PivotTables("PivotTable2").RefreshTable Sheets("TOS Customer Level").PivotTables("PivotTable5").RefreshTable End Sub
I'm in the process of continuing to build this babe (very slowly, as I have limited programming knowledge), and I wondered if there was a way to modify this code to make it refresh the data page if a server's page fails to load.
Part of my code is something like this, the first part being just the pseudo log on script.
Especially when there are over 50 pages to grab, the chances of one of the pages failing to load is VERY high, and this macro stops at the "Refreshbackground=False" command.
Is there a way to trigger a "refresh" once it fails?
When I protect the entire sheet, I can click in a cell and see what's in it, when I protect just a portion of the sheet, I can only click in the unprotected cells. Is this an Excel thing, or am I doing something wrong when protecting? I would like to see what the formula is in the cell when protected, but I can't click on the cell, what's the deal?
i have a spreadsheet with about forty different sheets and all of these sheets are protected with the same password, and wheni come round to doing an amendment to the spreadsheet i have to unprotect and then re protect each sheet in turn, very time consuming
I have an excel workbook I'm working on, and it needs to be protected. I have some groups that can be expanded or hidden, but once the sheet is protected you can no longer use the little button to hide or expand the group.
Any way to transfer the sheet protection from one worksheet to another worksheet via VBA.
Currently, the user selects a name from a drop down list, it unhides a workbook of the same name, copies from that workbook, and places the copied information in an area of the sheet with the drop down list. I would like the protection settings (in this case, selectivly unlocked cells to allow users to easily tab through and not make changes to data that should not be changed) to be copied with this information. Is this possible?
I have a piece of code with a couple of errors. The code selects a certain row and then copies and inserts this row on the last line with data, the number of rows is decided by the user via a form. The line of code with the error is highlighted, think it is a syntax/grammar error.
I have a workbook with about 70 sheets, some are specific for data entry, others for data review.
I share the workbook with my data entry team, and lock the review sheets so that no one can modify the data on them or change the formating. End users review the final protected sheets for the information that is appropriate to them.
I need to track the status of the protection of each sheet, such that I can edit the sheets as needed, then protect / lock them once I am done.
Is there a way to indicate, in a cell within the indvidual sheets, the status of protection for that sheet?
For example, if the sheet is protected, the Cell would read "LOCKED" and if the sheet is not protected, the cell would read "EDIT".
I've been using the attached spreadsheet to record daily sales for a while now, however, we've recently intorduced a new product and so I've had to add a new column to record daily sales of it.
On the spreadsheet is a 'New Week' button. Pressing this deletes all entries and moves the week numbers on by 1, so giving me a blank template each week. However, after the addition of the new column I'm now getting a bug error message. I've adjusted the code to take account of the new column but I'm still getting a bug error. When I press 'debug' it's highlighting something I have changed so I'm a little confused why I'm getting the bug error. Would someone have a look for me. I only seem to get the bug when there is protection on the sheet, I need protection. The password is PHUKET38
I have 2 spreadsheets: in a Sheet1 I keep some values and in a Sheet2 5 names of users with special rights (range A1:A5). I want to have sure that anybody will change/delete that names without password. Only the user "Administrator" can do that(I check the name of the user using "Application.UserName"). Additional question: is it possible to still protect those cells if somebody turn off macros during opening file?
I have enable Refresh on Open for my excel pivot table, but user need to click "Enable Automatic Refresh" , only solution i came across is to change the registry setting. Which i dont have access to edit registry(admin disable the access).
Alternate solution i try to use Access macro to automate the process and use Outputto save it as a excel file A. Then use excel file B to update pivot table from excel file A.(as excel A data is always latest) The problem is i will get "....A file name already exist...do you want to overwrite.." prompt. Which defeat the automate process.
Any other solution to enable the automatic refresh on open the excel workbook?
Or Access can overwrite the exist file or save it as another file name with timestamp ?
I am trying to Protect a Sheet to lock the width of just one column. Does the lock apply to all the columns in the worksheet or can it apply to a single column only. I can't seem to get this to lock just one column-if it is possible.
