Hide Title Bar / Ribbon - Disable Keyboard Functions And Right Click?
Apr 24, 2014
Below are the codes to hide the objects within Excel, Disable Keyboard shortcuts and disable right click, all are placed in the ThisWorkbook and i placed them in a 'Private Sub Workbook_Open()' function.
'Change 'False' to 'True' to unhide
ActiveWindow.DisplayGridlines = False
ActiveWindow.DisplayHeadings = False
There maybe simpler ways to do the above i just don't know them, it's just these have worked for me and i have had zero bugs come back from them!
I'm trying to disable the [x] in the upper right hand corner to force my users to use my "Close Workbook" button, but not sure how to do it. Then, was thinking that I might just want to hide the entire Application Title bar...
I need a macro to disable all cut options (ctrl^x, right click cut, cut button in ribbon above), disable drag and drop, but still allow copying and pasting (the cutting affects cell references). I've already locked the spreadsheet, but users need to be able to input information and paste information in from other workbooks. This code must also only apply to THIS WORKBOOK and not affect others. Please help with a macro for this, as well as where to paste and how to properly configure macro security settings. I'm a big excel user, but this is my first time ever with VB and macros so talk to me like I'm dumb! I've pasted links to the two codes I tried, and I think one of them enabled a macro that affected all workbooks and now whatever code I put in won't save upon re-opening. It's there when I navigate to it, but it is ineffective like it's not even there. In macro security, I've enabled all macros and have the "trust VB programming" box checked. So maybe do some damage control before re-programming. I am getting a new computer in less than a month, but I want to be able to try out the code and have it work first, and I don't want to transfer the harmful code to the new computer.
P.S. This first code allows copying and cutting, but then just disables pasting, which is not what I want. The second one works great, but disables the right click menu altogether, which is no good either. And neither allow for pasting from the outside. And this is for moderate excel users, they won't try to erase the macro. I just need to keep them from making mistakes with cutting.
Does anyone know if there is anyway that we can command Excel to avoid accepting aNY KEYBOARD ENTRIES? what intend to do is restrict a certain region on a worksheet for Users not to be able to type anything but but there are commandbuttons on the header which use: Range("C65536").End(xlUp)(2, 1) = "Value for the last cell" code to get the input into the cell. The purpose is to make use of the cmdbuttons with mouse but the data notto be keyed in !!!
I have the code that accompanies the attached spreadsheet model that locks the copy, paste, cut, double click and so on, with the right mouse button and shortcut keys, however, the toolbar excel these functions still remain active. How well I block access to the toolbar.
Is it possible to disable all Excel functions? not as in disable calculation, but actually make Excel's standard functions not available in a workbook.
My reason for wondering if this is possible is that I would like to write UDFs that perform special actions in addition to the typical Excel functions, but give them the same name as their Excel counterparts... essentially create polymorphisms / overloaded Excel functions.
I have a spreadsheet which has extra worksheets at the end that the user can move around, if they need them.
Then i found out that users were adding there own sheets, so i protected the workbook, but i found out that this stops the user from moving the sheet.
Whats the easiest way probably using code to disable the worksheet functions, ie the ones that appear if you click on the tab (insert,delete,rename,move+copy,select all sheets etc) but still allow the user to move the sheet within the workbook
Need code or way of disabling the Right Click feature in Excel? I think you can change it in the computer settings but I only want to disable it for a particular workbook so I am hoping there is a VBA Code that will tell the user "Right Click Not Allowed, Please use Cut and Paste or Ctrl +V and Ctrl +C"
Question regarding the disabling of right mouse button click options and have used the code below to disable and reciprocal code to enable options. The code works well in Excel 2003 but have recently used the spreadsheet in excel 2000 and the code causes a runtime error 5 'Invalid procedure call or argument'. how to amend the code to have it also work with Excel 2000.
I have a workbook with multiple charts in and will be available to others to use but I want to disable the ability for them to be able to right click on a chart and make any alterations. I cannot lock out the page due to other things that I have going on. I also need to reverse this code when they close the workbook down so it does not affect any other workbooks
I need to display Excel Sheet in a Browser and I want to disable the Right Click and Menu of Excel(File, Edit).
So in the method Workbook_Open i coded following
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Application. CommandBars("Worksheet Menu Bar").Enabled = False Application.CommandBars(" Cell").Enabled = False Application.CommandBars("Sheet").Enabled = False Application.CommandBars("Ply").Enabled = False Application.CommandBars("Row").Enabled = False Application.CommandBars("Column").Enabled = False End Sub
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean) Application.CommandBars("Worksheet Menu Bar").Enabled = True Application.CommandBars("Cell").Enabled = True Application.CommandBars("Sheet").Enabled = True Application.CommandBars("Ply").Enabled = True Application.CommandBars("Row").Enabled = True Application.CommandBars("Column").Enabled = True End Sub
It works fine, but if I open Excel application before viewing this HTML page(which contains XLS) and then the option are also disabled in Stand alone Excel application. I want to disable option when for this Sheet which is opened.
way, using VBA code, to disable/enable individual shortcut menu items that are are made available with a right mouse button click. The following code disables the right mouse button completely but I would like to disable only a couple of options like the ' Cut' option.
The code to disable is below and to re-enable I just change False to True.
Dim cb As CommandBar i = 0 For Each cb In CommandBars If cb.Type = msoBarTypePopup Then cb.Enabled = False Next cb
Is is possible to Update the master sheet with data from sub sheets in one click? Let us say we have one Master Sheet and Three sub sheets with name A, B, C. I would like to have excel function on Master sheet or Update button on Master sheet by which if i click on that it should copy all data except labels from A, B, C to Master sheets and also while copying one column should get auto filled based on from which sheet the data been copied. For example- If 10 data copied from A sheet on column X should show A, if data is copied from B, it should show as B...
Simple question: How can I disable the Research Task Pane from launching when I Alt-click in Excel 2003?
Further Explanation: I have an Excel Add-in (commercial, not my own) that will retrieve data from an outside server when the user presses Alt-Double Click. Work's great. I've now upgraded to Excel 2003, so anytime I Alt-Double Click, Excel opens up the "Research Task Pane" (Pain?). To make matters worse, I'm behind a corporate firewall, so I get an authentication challange in order to connect to the internet when this opens. Don't want it, don't need it, want to get rid of it. Any solution is fine - Option setting, VBA, Registry setting
When using 2013 Excel in the Home tab, line 1 is not visible. Using the File tab will show line one, but the Home title bar is unavailable. Toggling back and forth is not efficient. No one in this office has ever seen an Excel program not display a full page under the title bar in the Home tab.
I've just inherited a load of Excel files I need to continue using, but my predecessor has done something that disables the middle-click scroll ability.
I can still scroll up and down by turning the wheel, but I want to be able to click it and scroll in all directions at speed - I didn't realise how much I used this until I couldn't. Can't see anything in the VBA sheet properties, and they are all .xlsx files. Nothing leaps out of the settings either. If I create a new file or a file of mine within the same session, they work fine.
Is there a way to either hide or disable the worksheet menu bar on ONE SHEET ONLY, so that a right-click customize doesn't even work on that sheet. I want the user to be able to do nothing but what my customized toolbar allows on that sheet.
I am trying to allow uses of a spreadsheet to be able to select one control button which would in turn disable another one via check boxes however the control buttons do not re-enable when the undo check box is selected.
