Auto-Refresh AutoFilter With Sheet Protection On

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).

No Autofilter With Protection On
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.

Automatically Refresh Autofilter
I have a worksheet set with Autofilter. This worksheet is populated by formulas taking data entered on another worksheet.

I want the Autofilter for the first worksheet to automatically refresh each time I view that worksheet or as data is entered on the supporting worksheet.

Refresh Autofilter If Column Changes
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
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?

Automatically Refresh AutoFilter When Cell Value Changes
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...

Refresh AutoFilter Automatically When Any Change In Filtered Column
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?

Detect Auto Refresh In VB And Run A Macro
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).

How To Make A Data Miner Auto-refresh A Page That Fails To Load
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?

Import Data From Access Table To Pivot Table - Enable Auto Refresh
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 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 ?

Sheet Protection Causes Macro Error
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

Show Status Of Sheet Protection
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 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").

Automatically Refresh A Sheet Every Hour
I have a workseet that is basically a massive list of orders that have been placed. I have some conditional formatting based on cells that use the today() function to work out how long (in days) since the order was placed.

Trouble is, the spreadsheet is always open, and is never closed down... so it does not refresh automatically. So orders that should go red to indicate a week since they've been placed, don't!

I don't want to rely on people refreshing the screen. Ideally, I would like it to refresh once a day at 1 minute past midnight, or even every hour...

Copy Cells Removes Sheet Protection
I have hidden columns on a sheet.
I protect the sheet with a password before I send out the file to a 3rd party. However, it seems that all a user has to do is select the sheet cells, copy and paste onto another sheet or file. The protection is nonexistant and the user is able to unhide the columns.

Am I missing something?
Is there a way to "really" protect a sheet so that a user is unable to unhide confidiential columns? Preferably a method without VBA code.

Event Macro Causes Sheet Protection Prompts
One of the things it does throughout the course of the run is unprotect the worksheet, do what it needs to and then reprotects the sheet (using a password). On the second run, the sheet protection input box is shown and I am required to input the password before the code will execute.

The code that I have written uses an Add-in that pulls data from a database. As part of that retrieval, the other add-in protects the sheet without a password. Would that be causing my error?

Pivot Refresh After ODBC Query Complete Refresh
I have a query with ODBC connection to a SQL database. This query's parameter is linked to a cell. The resultant data is the source for a pivot table. I want to refresh the pivot table, when the query is run. I've tried using the cell that triggers the query....but the problem is that the query takes about 10 seconds to run. By the time the query returns new data....the pivot has already refreshed. I need it to refresh AFTER the query is complete.

I tried adding a cell that sums up the data from the query...thinking when THAT changes (due to updated data), to trigger the pivot refresh. Problem is that I don't know the trigger for when the sum cell changes (ie....formula change, not typed in.)

Protected Sheet - Macro To Unprotect, Refresh Sql Query & Re-protect Fails
I have a protected worksheet containing an SQL query. I have two cells on the worksheet unlocked so that users can enter fresh parameters to feed the query.
Because I have to use MS Query to interrogate our SQL server (current IT decree), the query won't support parameters directly when the query cannot be represented graphically - so I have to manually edit the sql command text and then refresh the query - or at least that was why I wrote the code below

The problem: My macro won't unprotect the sheet before it calls the therefore won't update the sheet to detail the DSN, command text and number of parameters (latter should be 0) - info just used to verify queryit won't run the query / return the data as the sheet is still protected Comment: I have had to remove sheet protection in order to allow the sql to execute and return data. If protection is removed, the query does execute and return data ( changes in the "parameter" cell contents do cause the query to be correctly modified)
I could comment out the debug info but the query still doesn't return data if the sheet is protected.

Auto Duplicate Row Contents From One Sheet To 2nd Sheet If Column Contains Set Words
I want to end up with is when I type text in any row of the 'Master' sheet, I would like the entire contents of each row to automatically be repeated on the worksheet of the same name (referred to by text entered in column O). For example row 5's contents from the Master sheet would duplicate into the sheet named 'Accommodation' as O5 contains the word Accommodation.

In addition, should the details ever change in the Master, this would also need to be reflected in the individual sheets. My only concern is that I'd like the individual sheets to fill from the top rather than match the exact row number position from the Master, ie if row 5 had the first occurrence of the word Accommodation in column O, the contents of that row would be placed into the next available first blank row of the Accommodation sheet, which in this case would be row 2 as the headings are on row 1.

Protected Sheet & Allow Use Of Autofilter
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.

Autofilter Will Not Always Select Entire Sheet
I have a workbook that uses Autofilter.
Column A has data. Column B is hidden, has no data, and is empty.
Colmn C has data, on through the rest of the sheet (to Column AB).

Why column B has no data is unimportant for now. It, however, must maintain its existance and cannot be deleted.

When I select the autofilter sort button on column A, it selects only that column, and not the rest of the sheet. Data is subsequently scrambled.

When I unhide the empty column B and select the sort button on column B, it selects the entire sheet. Data remains intact.

When I select the sort button on column C, it selects the rest of the sheet, but not column A (with data), or B (with no data). Data is subsequently scrambled.

Autofilter Code Failing On Shared Workbook & Protected Sheet
I have a protected worksheet with some macros running on it, and I have been requested to make the workbook shared. Trying to implement this, I keep getting the standard "1004 You cannot use this command on a protected sheet" error when applying an autofilter.

Here is what is making this problem a little tricky:

- As the workbook is shared, I cannot do Protect UserInterfaceOnly because you can't change the protection settings on a shared workbook without unsharing it. Needless to say, I cannot unshare the workbook.

- When I protect the sheet, I do allow the user to use autofilter. Consequently, Sheet.Protection.AllowFiltering and Sheet.EnableAutofilter both are on. Still, I keep getting the error.

The failing line of code is:

shData. Range("_filterDataBase").AutoFilter lngField, strArg

where shData is the codename of the sheet, lngField is the number of the field and strArg is the filtering criteria.

My guess is, that the error comes from the fact that (for some silly reason) in VBA the .AutoFilter method is used to create a new filter, not only to use an existing one. The members of Sheet.AutoFilter.Filters collection are read-only, and cannot be used to modify the existing filter.
