I have a protected worksheet, which I have 2 macros, 1 to spell check and 1 to insert rows, they both unprotect the sheet and re protect it again once they have completed. The problem I am having is that when I protect the work sheet first time round I tick the box to allow users to insert rows, once the Macros run they disable this functionality. Is there anyway I can include this in my Macros or do I need to add a new button!
I have a worksheet that I have some "locked" cells on. I also have protected the worksheet but when I check to allow users to insert rows and to delete rows and then save it, when I re-open it I can't insert rows or delete rows???
I am using some VBA to allow for the collapseing of rows while maintaining protection and that works perfectly. I want users to be able to insert and delete rows while maintaining protection. I thought a simple check in the protection was good enough, but for some reason it isn't.
I am working on an excel table in my worksheet contains formulas and locked cells. lets say table range is from column "a" to "f" and there is formula on cell in columns "c" and "f". I just locked cells in column "c" and "f" to prevent people changing the formula accidentally. but when the sheet is protected i am not able to insert or delete rows as the rows has locked cells in columns "c" and "f".
I tried the below macro to unlock the sheet, insert row and lock the sheet again:
So by running the macro it asks the password and do the job but the issue is it needs password and i do not want people to know my password. I don't want them able to unlock the workbook and make any undesired changes. I want them to be allowed insert or delete rows and input data in unlocked cell. I want the sheet to be locked all the time and only when people want to insert or delete a row it be unlocked and be locked again after inserting or deleting whit no need to insert password in this case only.
I have a sheet that has a section in range (c18:k25) (it is merged and text is wrapped) If that amount of space is not adequate to fit all their information I would like to add a macro that when activated it asks how many rows would you like to add and then based on that number whether it be 1-10 it would insert a new row to that merged range so they can continue adding more information . I have the sheet locked down to prevent changes so it would have to be unlocked and then re-locked within the macro.
Workbook Password Protect 2 Levels. I have managed to write simple but effective code that allows only one password to be enetered to open a SS & offers 3 levels of protection, limited permission to enter data, read-only & data completely hidden. This is excellent for my needs however I want the user who has limited rw to be able to insert a pic file which is their signature but because the sheet has protected cells it won't allow user to insert picture jpg file.
I have just thought of a creative solution tho. What if the picture file is already saved in the workbook and by using code to ask to insert pic file it copies from one location in SS to the appropriate cell in the worksheets?
The scenario is that I have fortnightly timesheets in 12 calendar months in 12 separate sheets. When staff member fills in timesheet I want them to insert signature for that f/night indicating thatthey have filled it in & it is correct but because of protection it won't allow me to.
I was able to create a macro that allows a user to unhide rows in a protected worksheet without unprotecting the other locked fields (see below). My question is: I want to add to this command so that 1 row can not be "unhidden" if the previous row is still hidden. For example, row 25 can not be unhidden if row 24 is still hidden.
Macro command used:
Private Sub Commandbutton4_Click() Sub Hide_Rows2h() ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:="xxx" Rows("25").Hidden = Not Rows("25").Hidden ActiveSheet.Protect Password:="xxx"
I got a worksheet here. I'd like to lock all the cell height and width using protected sheets function. I realized from time to time I have the need to hide them. How do I enable hiding sheets while maintaining cell integrity?
Is it possible to delete multiple rows when the worksheet is protected using vba? For Example Peps - Select a undetermined amount of rows and then use a macro to unprotect - delete the selected rows - protect.
I'm familiar with the code to allow grouping/ungrouping in a protected spreadsheet; http://www.ozgrid.com/Excel/outlining-protected.htm. How would I code to allow for hiding/unhiding cloumns and rows while still protecting the spreadsheet? Also, how could i allow for this file to be shared? Currently i'm getting an debug error when another person enters the file.
Have wrote the following code to enable 7 sheets to be unprotected, the pivot tables and charts housed within them to be refreshed then the sheets to be protected. However, once the macro has finished I need to be able to still use the filters on the pivots to flick through data. I also need the data table to be protected with the exception of a cell range that can be edited (preferably password protected.
Sub Refresh() ' ' Refresh Macro ' Refresh Pivot Tables/Charts
Is there any way to allow autofiltering and sorting even with locked cells within the range to be sorted? I've conditionally locked some cells based on user input, and at the end of my vb code I have allowsorting and allowfiltering. But I want to sort cells that are locked even after that. Does anyone know if that's even possible with VB?
The best way to explain my problem is to look at the table below:
How it looks now: ApplePrice 1 Price 2 Price 3FruitDeliciousPearStore 1 Store 2FruitVery DeliciousHow I want it to look:ApplePrice 1FruitDeliciousApplePrice 2FruitDeliciousApplePrice 3FruitDeliciousPearStore 1FruitVery DeliciousPearStore 2FruitVery Delicious
I would like to have my macro code search column A (supplier numbers) and split the rows into groups of rows of 5 or less and then insert 3 blank rows between each group of rows. The split needs to start on a new supplier number and cannot split a supplier number into two different groups. Here is a sample:
I have a spread sheet with values in the area of A1:H834
In column H, I have number values from 1-7.
Essentially that number value means that the values in the row are duplicate.
So, for example, if H2 has a value of 4, that means that $A$2:$G$2, really should have an additional 3 rows underneath with the EXACT same data in each cell, however, the way the sheet was created, was to remove the duplicate values and just indicate in column H, the number value of how many duplicates $A$2:$G$2 really is.
I need to unpackage this and create what it was originally. What type of formula can I use, to look at the value in H2, and then insert underneath that number of rowes with the exact same data as A2:G2 and do the same for the remainder of the table all the way down to A834:G834
I'm a macro novice and have been trying to teach myself how to write the correct one for a task I need to do, but I cannot seem to get it right. Basically, I have bunch of data and for one of the variables, different values are separated by commas. What I want is to create a row copying the info below for each piece of data after the comma.
A B C D
I suspect there is a fairly easy way to do this, but I cannot figure it out from searching the forums (or rather, I can't get it to work right).
i have this code which inserts blank rows in alternate rows,
Code: Sub insertrow() ' insertrow Macro Application.ScreenUpdating = True Dim count As Integer Dim X As Integer For count = 1 To 20 If activecell.Value "" Then activecell.Offset(1, 0).Select
what changes should i make in this code to insert rows only when ther are now blank rows. So first time i run, blank rows are already there, and when i update some data at the bottom and re-run it inserts blank rows again.
I have this code that works fine until I password the sheet and the range (b9:d65536) is protected. When I protect the sheet and make a change I get a debug error. What would I need to add/change to handle protected cells on a protected sheet?
VB: AutoLinked keywords will cause extra spaces before keywords. Extra spacing is NOT transferred when copy/pasting, but IS if the keyword uses "quotes" ....
as per the attached, need to insert those grey rows subject to the following condition :
if current row date <> next row date, .and. current row latitude / longitude <> next row latitude / longitude , insert grey row with date = current row date, else insert grey row next row date
note that the coordinates in the repeated grey rows, for the "Home" location, are the same through the sheet, should be entered by the user, at the beginning of the process, since there will be a spreasheet per user.
date is in column K latitude / longitude are in columns B / C
this will be of tremendous assistance in automating mileage claim review.
Is there a way to have a sort of programmed button that could be pressed that would insert all of the rows at once? Or perhaps a new line could be generated for each table with the only missing data being the values that would have to input manually?
To make it more clear I have attached a sample table. In the sample table, what I would want to do is insert a row at row 47 and at row 93. I want to do these at the same time easily. Keeping in mind that there are 40 some other tables arranged in series like that in one single spreadsheet. I cannot simply hit ctrl and select the two rows and then insert both rows, this would be equally as time consuming to do for all of the rows that would have to be added. Also, in the attached table, most of the values are either calculated values or are hard set numbers. The manually inputted values occur in columns B, E, and F. Everything else is copied down from the previous line.
