I have a sheet that is password protected. I have this code attached to a command button. It will unlock the worksheet, autofilter it, print it, unfilter it, and password protect the sheet again. However it is protecting it without a password. I need to have it protected with the password so that someone will not be able to just go to tools to unprotect the sheet.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() ActiveSheet.Unprotect "rainforest" Columns("O:O").Select Selection.AutoFilter Selection.AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=">0", Operator:=xlAnd ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, Collate:=True Selection.AutoFilter Field:=1 Selection.AutoFilter ActiveSheet.Protect DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True _ , AllowSorting:=True, AllowFiltering:=True End Sub
I'd like to be able to unlock the whole of a workbook by putting the password into a specific cell and then the whole thing locks again when it is saved. I have been able to find the coding to do this for a worksheet but I'd really like to be able to unlock the whole project.
I have been really trying to get this sorted myself and I can get it to work with one exception. I can't get the sheet to lock with a password. It locks, but if I try to unlock it again, it does so without prompting me to enter a password.
Essentially I am wanting to unprotect two sheets, unlock the cells that were previously locked (so users couldn't enter data in them when the sheet is protected), then reapply the same password to protect the sheet, but now they will be able to enter data in the unlocked range of cells).
The second macro is to reverse the changes made in the first and 're-lock' the unlocked cells) (and again apply the same password to the sheet).
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.
Below is code i wrote to change a password. password value is hidden in cell iv4 in different sheets. My userform contains 3 textboxes and button to run macro. As long as old password matches cell value AND new password is entered twice correctly then it will change value in cell iv4.
I am trying to password protect some of the cells in a worksheet. However doing that starts giving errors with Macros. The Macros are no longer working and infact giving error. What can I do to stop that happening?
I have previously used the following code to successfully pull out IE webpage source code for string manipulation.
Its a crude example to demonstrate the principle:
Public Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long) Public IE As Object Sub Sample() Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application") IE.Visible = True
However when I substitute in a Google websites address into the IE.Navigate command, the code runs to the "Source_Code = IE.document ...." line then flags up a Microsoft Visual Basic error. "Run-time error '438': Object doesn't support this property or method"
The webpage that I am trying to access is a confidential company site, so you won't be able to access it yourself, but starts with [URL] ......
The one thing that I have noticed about this website is the Privacy Report icon in the lower right status window (Picture of an eye with a restricted symbol in front). I don't know whether this is the cause of my problem, or purely an incidental observation.
Is there something peculiar with Google sites that means that the source code cannot be extracted in general, or is this an issue specific to my site ? Does the Privacy Report icon have any relevance, and if so how do I switch that off ?
I have a protected worksheet with most cells locked and some that are unlocked. I also know the password to unlock the sheet. VBA code to monitor a cell(B29 in my case) and if it has a value of 6.00 or more than it will unlock cell B34?
I have a sheet which i made ages ago and cant remember my pw. I can goto the alt, F11 select the macro and run it which i have set from all sheets to hide, and i can change the wording on the sheets but i cant open the code.
Does this mean i will have to forget about it unless i remember the pw?
I have an add-in which I want to share with others, but I want to protect the code from modification.
I know how to apply a password to a VBA project (Tools -> Project Properties -> Protection) but the problem is this: when a colleague installs the add-in, the subroutines within the add-in are not available in the Macros list to be added to the ribbon (in the Customize Ribbon window). The subroutines only appear when I remove the password.
I`m struggling to insert password protection to code.If Yes is selected from the messagebox then a messagebox opens and asks for a password.
Code: Sub DeleteRanges()
If MsgBox("Are you sure you want to delete data ?", vbYesNoCancel + vbExclamation, "Delete data") = vbYes Then With Sheets("Score") For i = 3 To 273 Step 10 .Range("D" & i).Resize(7, 11).ClearContents Next End With End If
I have an excel spread sheet with say 20 or so sheets. Sheet 20 known as "Rates" is hidden. What I would like to do is when the user presses a command button say on sheet 1 he is asked for a password which will unhide the Rates sheet . If he gets it wrong a message pops up say incorrect please try again or have an exit button to cancel.
i currently have created a macro for copy a selection of cells from one work book to another. The file were i am copying the cells from is Track_&_Trend_00.xls. In this there is a password to open and modify. The sheet that the cells are being pasted to is TRACK & TREND.xls. There is no password on this. My macro runs fine only that midway through it asks for the password to open and the password to modify for the sheet Track_&_Trend_00.xls.
I wonder ifany one would know about entering input lines of code below to automatically put these passwords in and not having the two password dialog boxes pop up midway through running the macro.
I am trying to add a command button that will set a custom view, password protect all worksheets, and finally password protect the entire workbook structure. The code I am using will correctly set the view and add the password to the worksheets, but it will not apply the password to the workbook structure. What do I need to add?
I have created a workbook that mostly works with VBA codes. Within the code I have ensured that certain worksheets remain hidden. However, I have also written a macro to access what I called the ADMIN worksheet, which has several commands enabling updates and troubleshooting. Long story short, I would ideally like to prevent users from accessing that worksheet. I have already created a prompt (Msgbox) asking the user if he/she wishes to proceed with the macro but I would prefer being able to have a password prompt to run the macro.
I have a code that opens a workbook and saves it under one file name and then saves it under 2 different file names, but it keeps on saving them as password protected and I can't work out why. Would it be something to do with the code or something else? The following is the code I am using:
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've used VBA to make a picture appear when all the correct answers have been entered and it all works well. However, not to be too mean to 15 year olds, many of my students can be devious little feckers, and I want to hide and password protect the VBA code so that they can't just change the pictures visible section to true. I can password protect the workbook and worksheet, but not the VBA.
I'm entering the Visual Basic editor and I can see my simple script. I then click Tools - VBproject properties - protection. I'm clicking the "Lock Project for Viewing" box then filling in the password and confirming the password and clicking OK. But I can still see and edit my script, despite protecting the sheet and workbook.
