Excel 2007 :: Protect Formulas For Being Changed / Deleted?

Sep 6, 2013

I have a lot of formulas that I don't want to be changed or deleted, but I still want the user to be able to enter data into the cells.

If I use "Protect sheet" I can't select a cell or enter something into it. I sure there is some setting I have to change, but I'm not sure what to select.

I'm using excel 2007

Protecting One Cell Value From Being Deleted / Changed (Data Validation)

Dec 5, 2012

I have a cell in my spreadsheet (J3) that I need to never be changed or else other macros in my workbook will not work properly. I decided to try and use data validation since it is easy to change the rule every month and I can stay away from messing with passwords.

My cell value is a date, so I set data validation to have that cell equal only that specific date. If a user tries to overwrite the cell value, the error messages is prompted correctly. The one BIG problem is that I can just press the delete key and delete the contents of the cell. Is there any way of preventing this from happening without having to lock the cell and password protect the sheet?

Event Code Errors When More Than One Cell Changed/Deleted

Apr 15, 2008

I used the code below for Conditional Formatting. This works fine but the VBA-code crashes when I delete more than one selected cell. Is there a simple modification possible to prevent this from happening?

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim icolor As Integer
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1:C250")) Is Nothing Then
Select Case Target
Case 1
icolor = 6
Case 2
icolor = 12
Case 3
icolor = 7
Case 4
icolor = 53
Case 5
icolor = 15
Case 6
icolor = 42
Case Else
'Whatever
End Select

Target.Interior.ColorIndex = icolor
End If
End Sub

Excel 2007 :: Formulas In Cells Not Being Recognized As Formulas?

Jan 10, 2013

I am running Excel 2007 on Windows Vista Business 32 bit. Recently I have noticed that if I enter a formula into an empty, unsused cell, it is recognized as a formula. If I modify that formula, it is then recognized as text and does not work as a formula. The only way I can get the cell to recognize a formula is to delete the cell and start over. This same scenario does not occur on previously stored workbooks. I have checked all of the flags that I know about, including the Options function.

Excel 2007 :: Protect Template But Not The Children?

Jul 24, 2014

Using Excel 2007. When I put password protection on the template, the template child doc also gets the same password protection. I want to prevent tampering on the template, but I want the child doc to be fully editable for the end user. After all, isn't that the purpose of a template? I just don't want anyone to be able to edit the template itself, which also seems like the purpose of a template. Am I missing something about not seeing how to configure this obvious functionality?

Excel 2007 :: How To Protect The Worksheet With Password

Dec 30, 2012

I know how to protect a worksheet with a password so that no one can amend the contents or view the formulas in the cells. And then we can un-protect the worksheet by clicking on the "review" tab in excel 2007 and so on. But recently I came across an excel sheet which was password protected and my query is that the "Review" tab was greyed out. What kind of protection was this that clicking on "review" tab option is also unavailable. And how does these kind of sheets get unlocked then.

Excel 2007 :: How To Protect Inserted Header Data

Dec 3, 2012

I'm using Excel 2007. I know how to protect specific cells within a worksheet, but I have not been able to find any information online pertaining to locking or protecting inserted header/footer data, even if I protect the worksheet.

I'm not concerned about setting specific VBA commands to ensure the header/footer prints, but rather preventing other users from being able to edit the data upon distribution of the worksheet.

Jan 30, 2014

I am using Excel 2007 and I have a worksheet with multiple columns, some of these columns are protected and some are not.

I then lock the worksheet with a password so the user can't edit certain cells that are protected but can modify the unprotected cells, the problem is the user cannot use the filter or sort the workbook.

Protect Sheet Name From Being Changed

Jan 16, 2008

Can you protect a sheet name from being changed by a user?

Can you protect a sheet from being deleted by a user?

I have an Excel 2003 file available to all employees on a network. There are three sheets. Two sheets are protected with passwords and users can not enter any data on them. They are used to hold data needed by the third sheet.

The third sheet (named FORM) is for user input. FORM has a majority of the cells protected with a password. Users can enter information, save the file, print the sheet, or make duplicates of the sheet. The sheet contains data validations, conditional formatting, and formulas.

I have some VBA which acts on all the sheets (even those which users might have inserted) making them visible (very hidden) or not. When a user opens the file (whether for the first time or after adding sheets), I always want them to have FORM unhidden. I have VBA to do this but what if a user changes the name of the sheet? CRASH!

Excel 2007 :: Hide Sheets On Opening And Password Protect Viewing

Nov 1, 2009

I have an Excel 2007 workbook which has five sheets in. I just wondered whether it is possible to hide all five of them when the workbook is first opened. Also I would like the user to be asked for a password when they wish to unhide a sheet, with the password being different for each of the sheets.

Is there also a way to do this which won't be affected by Excel disabling all Macros when the application initially opens.

Excel 2007 :: Protect Worksheet Disables Formatting And Insert Symbols?

Mar 20, 2013

I've got a workbook where I need to protect certain cells by locking them.

The trouble is when I do this I lose the ability to apply formatting and to insert symbols in other cells?

I've checked the obvious options for when you're locking cells but nothing seems to be stopping this there.

Is there a reason it disables these options, a work around or am I just being dumb?

I'm using Excel 2007 by the way.

Excel 2007 :: Turning Formulas On And Off

Mar 14, 2012

Background info: I have developed a Hired Equipment Time Sheet with numerous formulas to auto populate and calculate various cells to minimize user impute requirements.

Can cell formulas be toggled on and off to allow manual impute of data rather than the formula automatically populating information in the cell if the need arises? If so, can this be done via a drop down pick? Also can or will the formula still be protected?

Excel 2007 :: Not Copying Formulas

Mar 24, 2012

I am running Excel 2007.

I have set up a table and for ease of explanantion Column C has a formulas in it to add together the values found in Column A and B.

EG C3 foumula = "=sum(A3+B3)"

Now in cols d & e I have manually entered figures and in colum F I want to add up those figures so F3 should read "=sum(D3+E3)"

In the past I have always been able to just copy the cell C3 and paste it into F3 and the formula would automatically copy and offset the various cells to the correct cells for the new posiitoning.

However, for some reason when I copy the cell, it now pastes the value only into the pasted cell and does not copy the formula, if I click on paste special to try to just copy the formula I now get a pop up asking me if I want to paste as Unicode Text or Text.

I have no recollection of changing any settings.

Formulas Change When Column/row Is Deleted. How Can I Stop That

Nov 11, 2006

I have a spreadsheet that holds the NHL schedule for the season. (See thumbnail)

In the picture I've highlighted the formula I use to determine how many games each team has over the next 7, 14, 21 and 28 days. What I've been doing is deleting the column for each day after that day has passed. (So tomorrow, I'll delete column K, and all the other days will move up one. Sunday will become column K)

My problem is that the formula =7-COUNTIF($K3:$Q3,"") in cell G3 will read =7-COUNTIF($K3:$P3,"") after I have deleted Saturday, and thus will only count 6 days worth. (The 14, 21 and 28 columns will only count 13, 20 and 27 as well.) Is there any way I can write this formula so that it stays as K3:Q3? Right now each day I modify the 4 formulas for the 1st team and then copy/paste then over the other 30, but this is rather tedious.

Formulas To Not Change If Cells Where Deleted From Sheet

Sep 18, 2007

I have a sheet (sheet2) that has cells in column L, M and N referencing cells in another sheet (sheet1)(same workbook).

If I delete a row out of Sheet1 it causes the formula in Sheet2 to go to #REF.

Normally the formula would be something like
='Sheet1'!L13
How can I get these formulas to not change just because cells where deleted from Sheet1?

Excel 2007 :: Formulas Not Automatically Calculating?

Jul 3, 2012

Using Microsoft Excel 2007 and all of a sudden, my spreadsheets are not automatically calculating the formulas. It does not matter if I have other workbooks open or not. I still get the problem. It does not happen 100% of the time to make it even more complicated.

- Calulation set to auto in Excel Options.

- No VBA functions being used. I can the worksheet summing 1 + 1 and get the error periodically. It does not have to do with the spreadsheet being too complicated.

- Even if I can hit Ctrl-Alt-F9 to force the formulas to calculate, it won't work.

Excel 2007 :: VBA To Replace Formulas In Certain Cells With Their Values?

Nov 8, 2011

I am running Microsoft Excel 2007 on Windows XP. Right now, I have the standard macro set up that will replace formulas with their values. It's the standard macro that does this for the entire sheet:

Code:
Sub All_Cells_In_Active_WorkSheet_1()
With ActiveSheet.UsedRange
.Cells.Copy
.Cells.PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
.Cells(1).Select
End With
Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub

However, with this being a daily task, the issue is that this wipes the formulas out for future dates, which is obviously problematic. To be more specific:

I have one tab (HISTORICAL) with over 200 rows with each business day this year. Columns B through H will pull data from two other tabs (ENTRY1 and ENTRY2) that is entered daily, using a formula that tells Excel to only pull the data for the current date:

Code:
=IF(A224=ENTRY1!B1,ENTRY1!B2,0)

So each day, someone will open this sheet and input their data on the ENTRY1 and ENTRY2 tabs. These numbers will auto populate over to the HISTORICAL tab for that specific day.

Also on each day, someone else will open the sheet and go to the HISTORICAL tab and run the macro that converts the formulas on that sheet to the value.

I want to be able to run the macro only for the row with the current date (and any date before will be fine since those will already be converted anyway).

So, taking today for example, when I run the macro, I want it to convert the data only in the 11/8/2011 and previous rows, but NOT for the 11/9/2011 and later rows.

Excel 2007 :: Table Autoexpansion Does Not Include Formulas

Nov 30, 2011

I am working with Excel 2007 and have an occurring problem when I resize a table. Some of my forumlas copy to the new rows, while others do not. How can I ensure all my formulas copy to the newly created rows. Also sometime when they do copy to the new row an #REF! in the formula where the range should be , yet if I copy and paste the formula from the above row it works.

Here is an example of one of my Formulas Note Sheet1!$J$3:$J$500 is also a table Called Data

=SUMPRODUCT((Sheet1!$J$3:$J$500)*(Sheet1!$A$3:$A$500=$A14&DP$4)) and this is how it is inserted into a new row

=SUMPRODUCT((Sheet1!#REF!)*(Sheet1!#REF!=$A15&DP$4))

Excel 2007 :: Copy / Paste Won't Carry Over Formulas

Apr 19, 2012

Excel 2007 copy/paste is bringing over formula results and not the formula (e.g. Ctrl-c "=A1+B1", Ctrl-v "3").

I've validated my calculation options are set to automatic and that the sheet format is "general", which I saw on older posts.

Perhaps related, when I paste special, I get a different box which only allows me to paste as Unicode Text or Text.

Excel 2007 :: Using IF / VLOOKUP Formulas INSIDE Data Validation

Sep 6, 2011

What I have attached is spreadsheet I've built to quickly generate an army list for a tabletop game. Anyone can click on the Force Organization Slot (FOS) and choose the type of unit and from there, select the specific unit name attached to that FOS. Each individual unit has a list of options/upgrades currently attached to the sheet from cells AD through AX and the points cost listed next to each upgrade.

For example, when selecting the Rhino unit from the Dedicated_Transport FOS, there should be 4 drop down lists of selectable upgrades (Storm Bolter, Hunter-Killer Missile, Dozer Blade, and Extra Armor). Currently, I have only named the ranges for the Rhino and Razorback units in order to get this working properly without having to go through the entire list of units and change names/create ranges/ect.

What I'm aiming to do is to create an individual drop down list that is directly related to the Unit Name cell in order to populate a complete and selectable upgrade list for each unit. I have played around with some functions that work in the spreadsheet (see cells X10:X12) but do not work properly with Data Validation.

Oddly enough, when I enter this formula under Data Validation:

=IF($A$3<>$AD$1:$AD$182,VLOOKUP(A3,Options,2,FALSE),"")

I do not get an error, yet the drop down list does not allow me to select anything as I thought it would.

Excel 2007 :: Changing Huge Numbers Of Hyperlinks (formulas)

Feb 5, 2014

I've got a main workbook (excel 2007) with a main spreadsheet where i group all the information (text and values) about brands and models linked to 10 workbooks (brands) with several spreadsheets (one spreadsheet=one model).

On the main spreadsheet I've got 16 lines for each model which they have the follow formulas, wich are linked to other workbook / spreadsheet (Mar/Gato)

1)

IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(V844;[Mar.xlsx]Gato!$A$3:$CE$78;3;FALSE));"";VLOOKUP(V844;[Mar.xlsx]Gato!$A$3:$CE$78;3;FALSE))

and will return text values


2)

IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(V844;[Mar.xlsx]Gato!$A$3:$CE$78;82;FALSE));"";VLOOKUP(V844;[Mar.xlsx]G!$A$3:$CE$78;82;FALSE))

And will return number values


3)

IF(M844<>"";HLOOKUP($V$3;[Mar.xlsx]Gato!$A$2:$CE$78;2;FALSE);"")

And will return number values. The return value (;2 goes from 2 to 16.

This process repeats to all the 10 workbooks e and 250 spreadsheets

4) Table Array of the model spreadsheet

With regard to formula 1) and 2)

The problem is that the table array (on the model spreadsheet) could have diferent dimensions (becouse the launch year of the model) like this:

A$3:$CE$78 (2009 - Launch year)
A$3:$BR$78 (2010 - Launch year)
A$3:$BE$78 (2011 - Launch year)
A$3:$AR$78 (2012 - Launch year)
A$3:$AE$78 (2013 - Launch year)

And the return column (value) for formula 1) is always ;3;

And the return column (value) for formula 2) are like this:

;82; (2009 - Launch year)
;69; (2010 - Launch year)
;56; (2011 - Launch year)
;43; (2012 - Launch year)
;30; (2013 - Launch year)
;17; (2014 - Launch year)

The difference between above values is 13, it corresponds 12 months and the total column (12+1)

For the formula 3) the table array its the same, the only difference is instead of starting A$3, starts in A$2

5) The update of the formulas 1) 2) 3) for 2014

I'm doing this manually... The formulas are updated like this,for 2013, I've got table array A$3:$AE$78 and the return value (;17, then for 2014 i will have a table array A$3:$AR$78 and the return value will be (;30, and so on

5) Change the network drive

For other reasons I've to change my files to another network drive, something like this:

Q:KPI2014Main File

6) Main Goal

I was thinking using Excel's regular Find and Replace feature to change:

- The network drive designation
- the table array area
- The return value

But I don't know if this process ( Find and Replace) is safe and clean. I'm doing this manually and I've got on the main worbook/sheet 4000 lines with 3 formulas its 12000 operations!I'm on the 350 line....!

The main goal is to update the all formulas (links) to "brand" workbooks and inside "model" spreadsheets automatically with a macro.

Excel 2007 :: Alternative To Convert Formulas To Values That Keeps Hyperlinks Active?

Oct 16, 2013

I'm using Excel 2007 and I'm a VBA novice.

Problem: The macro will be assigned to a command button and will be used by laypersons when they finish filling in data on a worksheet in Workbook 1. The sheet contains maybe 30 columns and 50 rows with a mix of fixed values and values generated by Vlookup and Indirect formulas. I need to copy the sheet from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2. Workbook 2 will be for archival purposes so I want to convert all formulas to fixed values. The catch is dealing with some cells that contain hyperlinks to PDF files...

Current Solution: I currently do this with a macro that moves/copies the sheet from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2, it then selects all cells in the new sheet in Workbook 2, copies all cells, then pastes-special "as values" to the exact same cell locations. This works great for me since the cell formatting and data in the sheet are VERY irregular and I have merged cells all over the place. This method keeps the exact formatting I need maintain:

ActiveSheet.Copy After:=Workbooks("Workbook2.xlsx").Sheets(1)
ActiveSheet.Cells.Select
Selection.Copy
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
Application.CutCopyMode = False

The problem is that a few of the cells have hyperlinks with "friendly names" and I lose the hyperlinks when I convert to values. The hyperlinks are not inserted directly, they are created by a formula, =HYPERLINK("N:Filepath"&C16&".PDF", "Click_For_PDF"), and the row and column that contains the hyper link will vary for each sheet I want to migrate from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2 using this macro. I want to keep the hyperlink active with the clickable friendly name in Workbook 2.

Possible Solution: I'm open to all types of solutions, but is there a way to essentially use my existing macro but AFTER converting to values with paste-special, go back to the original sheet in Workbook 1 that still contains formulas (or maybe a temporary duplicate sheet I migrate to Workbook 2?), search for all cells with a "value" of "Click_For_PDF", copy ONLY those cells and paste (normal) into the corresponding cell locations in the sheet in Workbook 2 that now contains fixed values? ALL of my hyperlinks have the friendly name "Click_For_PDF" so it should be an easy way to identify the hyperlink cells. The cell location of the hyperlink copied in Workbook 1 needs to carry over to Workbook 2 and I said before, the row and col vary with every sheet I want to archive with this macro.

Excel 2007 :: Copying Word Pages To Workbook To Calculate Numbers By Using Formulas

Apr 10, 2013

I am working on word documents that has financial numbers on them. I am copying word pages to excel to calculate the numbers by using formulas and etc. I will cut to the chase; is there a way or a macro to insert into an excel template workbook(.xltx) when we open the template there will be a command button to select the word document (which we want to copy its pages) to excel sheets. When a new page begins a new sheet will be created and the page will be pasted on the new sheet.

It is not important if it has to have a command button to select the word document it is ok to run the macro and select the word document and it does not has to populate sheets according to length of word document (I can create lost of free sheets on the template)

The main idea is to gain the time I spend on copying the word document to excel sheets. Some documents can be very long (100 pages). I am using MS Office 2007.

I triend to export data but excel does not allow me to select word documents.
