Linking To Password Protected Workbooks

Jan 24, 2012

I have all of the passwords. I just want to avoid having to type in all 30+ of them each time I open the master sheet.

I have a master for each manager that pulls a few values from each of their employees personal sheets.

The personal sheets (about 30) are individually password protected so only the owners can open them.

This is creating a security issues as the links in the master require the passwords for each of the "source" workbooks.

Is there any way to add some code so that the passwords do not need to be entered each time?

Linking To Password Protected Documents?

Dec 2, 2013

I have a master document which maintains employees vacation an lieu time. I want to create a document for each employee where they can view all of their own person information by linking it to the master. The only problem is is that the master document is password protected. They can't have the password or they could access the master document and other employees confidential information. Is there a way to update there own document without entering the password or codon so the password automatically enters without them seeing it.

Linking To A Password Protected Workbook

Apr 18, 2009

My question is as follows:

I have two workbooks in the same folder on a shared drive. Workbook2 is linked to workbook1. I have protected Workbook1 with a password protected to limit access.

When my collegues who use workbook2 try to open it, it asks for the password for workbook1 before opening. When they ignore that and go a head to open the file. The new information from workbook1 is not updated into workbook2.

How can i mentain my password in workbook1, and keep the files linked such that they can be able to see the new information in workbook2 without knowing the password for workbook1.

Macro To Open Protected Workbooks Prompting To Enter Password?

Jul 25, 2012

I am having an issue with a macro to open password protected workbooks. The macro works just fine in opening the files and whatnot, but for some reason it prompts me to enter the password again once the file has been opened. Funny thing is I can either hit OK or hit Cancel and it goes to the next file. All files open correctly, I was just curious as to why this is happening and how to correct it?

Password Protected VBA Module

Sep 16, 2013

Password protected VBA module causes Excel to crash on debugs. Macros work fine if I open VBE and enter my password.

I'm using Range.("This range does not exist").Select to force a debug.

If I run my macro without entering my module password, the debug window appears and Excel crashes.

If I run my macro after entering my module password, the VBE window opens and it debugs normally.

I'm 90% sure the password protection is the problem. I want to keep my code password protected, but I don't want my project to crash on an error.

Sharing Add-in With Password-protected Code?

Apr 10, 2013

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.

Paste To Password Protected Workbook

Aug 25, 2006

I've got two files: the one that is the source file and the second one which is the target file. The target file is password protected (let us take the number 1 as the password in this case). I have a macro that would copy the value of an example cell to the target file:

Sub iso()

Dim wBook As Workbook



On Error Resume Next
Set wBook = Workbooks("Test2.xls")

If wBook Is Nothing Then
ChDir "D:"
Set oWB = Workbooks.Open(Filename:="D: est2.xls")

to add a line (or two) to this code, that would open and unprotect the target file and then at the and protect the target file with the same password.

VBA Enter Password To Protected Linked Files

Jul 11, 2013

I currently have a problem when retrieving data from an external document that is password protected. The below routine causes Excel to request the password to the file multiple times. Using the 'SendKeys' function provides a slight workaround although I am very keen to remove this. It also doesn't appear to update links once the routine has run though a couple of the 'For' loops.

I have it set so that the user has to input the first password request, but the 'SendKeys' simply hits enter for the rest of the requests. This doesn't stop the cells from being updated for the first run of the 'For m' routine but can fail on the following runs. Sometimes the second loop works, sometimes it doesn't and the user will have to manually update the links through the 'Edit Links' tool.

I tried turning Application.DisplayAlerts to false after the first password request but that didn't stop it from appearing. If it had, I was going to use the ActiveWorkbook.UpdateLink Type:=xlExcelLinks command to allow the user to update the links at the end.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
'Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim d, m As Integer

Running A Password Protected Macro Remotely

Jan 26, 2007

I have a macro in a workbook (good start) as follows:

Sub UnhideSheets()

' Set to Auto Calc mode

With Application
.Calculation = xlAutomatic
End With

' Asks for a password (must be "unhider")

Dim mypass, response As String

mypass = Application.InputBox("This macro requires you to enter a password to proceed." & vbCrLf & "Please enter password below.")

' If password is correct

If LCase(mypass) = "unhider" Then

' Unhides all sheets

Dim i As Integer
For i = 1 To Sheets.Count
Sheets(i).Visible = True
Next i

' Then tells you that all is OK

response = MsgBox("All sheets unhidden", 0, "Macro run")

' Otherwise


' Tells you that there is a problem (Unauthorised to continue)

response = MsgBox("Sorry, you are not authorised to use this macro.", 16, "Macro stopped")

' hides the sheet again

Sheets("BSG Only!").Visible = xlHidden

' And ends the "if"

End If

End Sub
This unhides the "very hidden" sheets that make the book work and is password protected because I want to limit the people who can see this data.

What I would like to do, however, is call this macro remotely from another procedure in a separate book, which can only be accessed by those who are authorised to see the hidden data.

Essentially, then, my question is: "How do I call the protected procedure without the user having to enter the password each time, as they must be authorised to have access to the procedure that calls the protected procedure?"
