Excel 2010 :: Copy Cell Contents From A Permission Protected File
Apr 17, 2013
S/W Environment: Excel 2010
Some of my worksheets are permission protected. They will allow me only to view the sheets - No editing, copy, cut, sort, add filter, etc. Is there a way to hack this and copy data (including formating) into other / new worksheets?
I'm using excel 2010 and windows XP with a moderate amount of experience tinkering with macro programming. I know what I need is very doable but I can't get my head around what the code would look like. I must not be wording my searches correctly because most of what I'm getting for results are iterative programs based on a cells value which isn't what I need.
I'm trying to build a macro that will check a cell (C3) and based on the contents of that cell copy a column (I) to one of 12 different columns (K:V). So if the value in C3 is 1 it should copy I to K, if the value is 2 it should copy I to L, and so on.
I have an excel spreadsheet that I password encrypted in Excel 2003.
The computer that it was stored on has died however the hard drive was still good and has been added as a second drive in my current computer with no signs of data corruption.
I took ownership of all the files on the old drive and gave explicit rights on my current computer to open that file. However when I open the file with in excel. I get the error: You don't have permission to open this file. Contact the file owner or an administrator to obtain permission.
When I open from windows explorer. I get the error: Excel cannot access 'Passwords.xls' The document may be read-only or encrypted.
And: 'Password.xls' cannot be accessed. The file may be corrupted, located on a server that is not responding, or read-only.
The new computer has Excel 2010 instead of 2003. Additionally, I know the password to the encrypted file but it wont let me even get to a place where I need to put in a password. I cannot move or copy this file to another location either.
I'd like my macro (in an Excel 2010 workbook) to copy values from three worksheet cells and append them to an existing Access or SQL database file -- without having to leave my Excel spreadsheet or open any other programs. The database file simply needs to be appended. Keeping a running list. That file isn't being used for anything else, we can set it up however is necessary to do this.
For example, Excel cells A1, A2, and A3. Representing Job Name, Job Number and Job Total.
how make VBA do this(in SIMPLE terms)? Or give me a link of where to look or what to search for? I understand VBA but not Access or SQL.
However, I am trying to use the same macro on several different tabs in the same EXCEL worksheet. Obviously, I can't have the tab name in the macro. But, I don't get a title at all when I try to remove it like this...
ActiveChart.ChartTitle.Select Selection.Caption = "=R2C1" or ActiveChart.ChartTitle.Select Selection.Caption = "=A2"
Is this possible? I am (kinda new at) using EXCEL2010.
How, via VBA, would I add a comment from a userform (text box name: txtReason) into a cell that may already have a comment in it? I would like to keep the comment that is in the cell and then have the program add a "/" and the next comment from txtReason..
Recently I have been practising writing my own macros in VBA. I am using Excel 2010.
I have been trying to write a macro to look at two columns in a worksheet (say, columns D and E) and to delete the contents (not the formatting, and I don't want to delete the cell itself) of that cell only if it contains a numerical value (e.g. 1, 2, 256 or any other number). If it finds a cell with letters, then it wouldn't delete the contents of the cell. The cells are currently formatted as "currency" cells.
I have been trying all sorts of things and I just can't get it to work. I can write a macro to clear a range easy enough, but I am stuck on getting it to delete the right stuff. I won't embarrass myself by uploading the code that I have been using..
I am trying to copy a file, rename it, and save it to a new folder. I keep getting a "Compile Error ; Syntax Error" at line FileCopy (ImagePath & oldName, NewPath & newName). I am using Excel 2010.
FileCopy (ImagePath & oldName, NewPath & newName)Sub RenameFiles() 'Renames file based on "sheet 1" - Column 1 Old file name - Column 2 New file name Dim oldName As String Dim myfile As String Dim newName As String Dim ImagePath As String Dim NewPath As String
A user in our company has a document on a shared drive in our domain. It's using the protect feature which means that you'll have to type username/password before you're allowed to edit the document. The problem is that users who only want to view the document will cause it to lock, and then you can't edit it before they close it.
I thought that sharing the document would solve this issue, but when I tried to it said that Visual Basic features would not work which basically makes the document useless so that's not an option.
i have an excel file with hundreds of rows of product codes which i need to download images for. is there a way this can be done directly from excel? basically if cell A1 has product name and Cell B1 have product code, id like Cell C1 to generate a link that will use the contents of B1 as the basis of my google image search. can this be created using a macro?
I have created a macro in excel 2010 which enable the file to save (extract) data into separate location and name. The vba code for macro is as follows: Question: How can I save this workbook with reference to the value containing in cell B2? (it is named temporary now - as defined in the code)
I have a worksheet that has a number in cell K5 - the number is generated on "file open" code and is custom formatted as "TN"0000. Thus 1 appears as TN0001, 2 as TN0002 and so on. I am trying to save a copy of the workbook based on the this cells contents i.e. TN0001.xls, TN0002.xls etc. but the files are saved as 1.xls or 2.xls. The code I am using is
I am trying to find some VBA that will allow protected cells to be updated when a user enters or selects data in other cells.
Cell 'A1' starts out blank. Cell 'B1' has a drop down to select specific items. Cell 'C1' is the date of the order and is a locked cell. Cell 'D1' is the date of completion and is a locked cell. The worksheet is protected to prevent direct changes to cells C1 and D1.
If a user enters any information in A1, then C1 displays the current date. If a user selects 'Complete' from the drop-down list in B1, then D1 displays the current date. Both of these actions are independant of one another. This format is the same for every cell in the 4 columns indicated above. I thought I was able to do this in another spreadsheet I created a year or so ago but I have not been able to figure out what I did and I do not have the spreadsheet to look at.
I'm using Excel 2010 and I've got a chart on a worksheet and the worksheet needs to be protected. I'm able to manipulate the chart in any fashion EXCEPT the position of the Data Labels. Is this a bug in Excel 2010?
I need to make a excel costing model to calculate various products prices. I am using Excel 2010.
I have many products and do not need all of them displaying at the same time, therefor I inserted a Checkbox (ActiveX Control) that hides my columns that I do not need. I did that by inserting the following and it works fine :
The problem is I now need to lock certain cells so that they can remain fixed and the recipe cannot change.
Once locked my checkbox no longer works and I get the following error :
"Run-time error '1004': Unable to set hidden property of the range class"...
I recorded a macro to save my file as PDF and assigned the macro to a button. Easy. Now I would like to change my macro to pause when the file is saving to allow the user to enter a file name. If that is not possible, I'd like to reference a cell to use as the file name. I have gone through other posts and tried changing my macro, but always get an error. I am using Excel 2010. Following is my code for saving to pdf.
I just found a code to copy file path and file contents. However it is copying folder path and folder contents.here is my requirement.I will specify a path, macro has to copy that file name in a particular cell, then it has to copy all its contents. ex:
file name 1 has 3 sub files in it, file name 2 has 2 sub files in it--
I'm trying to use Excel to build a text file based on values from certain cells in Excel 2010. This is based partially off of static text that never changes and variables that will need to change. For example, I want Excel to output a text file that has the following text: The red fox jumped over the $X twice. I would want $X to be replaced by the value of A1 of the active worksheet. I will also have several lines like that, so it won't just be a single line, but anywhere from 20 - 120.
I have Table1 in sheet1 and Table2 in sheet2 of same Excel Workbook. The contents ( Data in columns B, C, D, E and F) of Sheet1 Assets are to be verified with respect to the contents ( Data in columns B, C, D, E and F) of the same Asset in Sheet2. If the all contents (of all columns) are matching, it should return Boolean value (True) in column G of the sheet1 or else Boolean value (False).
I am using Excel 2010 version and I do not have Power Pivot menu.
Table1: Excel 2010 A B C D E F
1 Asset Prevention Control Detection Mitigation Escape, Evacuation & Rescue
Table2: Excel 2010 A B C D E F
1 Asset Prevention Control Detection Mitigation Escape, Evacuation & Rescue
I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet consisting of many worksheets (20 or so). Each of these worksheets contain detail level data regarding different projects. One of the columns in these worksheets is the 'Status' column (column F). There is conditional formatting on this column where if the text is 'G' then change background to a green color, 'Y'=yellow, 'R'=Red and 'U'=Grey.
The first worksheet is a summary sheet that I would like to pull information from each of the detail worksheet's columns B, D, E, G and H if the status column (Column F) is 'R' or 'Y'.
The number of rows in the detail worksheet can change each week (as few as 0 and as many as 100)
(I am using Excel version 14.0.7106 and MS Office Professional 2010.)
I have a macro in which I have named a range of numbers in a spreadsheet, used the "find" function to find a particular number in that range, and now would like to copy some information into a cell in the same row as the found number. However, when I try to move over to the cell that I'm copying to, it only goes to the 1st row in the range that I have defined.
Here's the portion of code I think you need to see. Everything works...it finds a match...but then I don't know what to do from there to get the information to the correct row:
'Grab the 1st project number Range("C8").Select Do Until ActiveCell.Value = "" If ActiveCell.Value "" Then prjnum = ActiveCell.Value Selection.Offset(0, 8).Select
I am trying to clear the contents of a range of contiguous cells (containing formula) in Excel 2010 64bit. But it is taking a LONG time (read >30min to clear a range 288 x 100). Originally was doing it in VBA but it was taking too long so I started stepping through the macro and identified that the slow down was occurring on a particular sheet only. So the problem is in Excel....not VBA because it is still very slow when deleting the same range in Excel without using VBA.
I've tried all the usual suspects including: Application.EnableEvents = False (run from the VBA Immediate window when using Excel without VBA), Setting to Example of slow clear contents5.xlsxExample of slow clear contents5.xlsxManual Calculation, Turning off screen updating, deleting all the conditional formatting on the sheet, removing any data validation from the sheet (yes all these at the same time). There are no links to external workbooks. I've even tried in VBA changing from .ClearContents to .Value = vbNullString. All to NO AVAIL! By way of background the file is about 72Mb #.xlsm.
If I try to clear contents of larger ranges on other sheets in the same workbook it is instantaneous. If I copy the problem worksheet off to a new workbook, I can delete the problem range almost instantly. Why deleting a range of cells should take so long! Again to clarify, I am using the terms "delete" and "clear contents" interchangeably, but they both mean "clear contents" (not delete and move up cells). P.S I've also looked into the reported conflict between Excel and Google Desktop Office Add-in (Office Button->Excel Options->Addins->Com Addins and deselect Google Desktop Office Addin) but I didn't have Google Desktop Office Add-in so it isn't that.
Is there a way to protect the conditional formatting of accessible cells in a protected sheet.
Detail: I have a protected excel sheet. However some of the cells are made accessible so others (my secretary) can fill them up. The accessible cells have conditional formatting which become nonfunctional during pasting from other sources if "special paste" is not used.
