Macro Security Changing Worksheet

May 13, 2006

I have created a workbook. That has 35 worksheets within it. I have created a series of buttons and put in a macro code so that when the user clicks on the button it changes the active worksheet to what they clicked on.

So basically when they click button b it changes to worksheet b and if they click button c it changes to worksheet c, ETC.

The problem I have is that since it is a macro it works fine on my computer but when it is sent to other users, because of security settings on their pcs it will disable the macro [thus the buttons will not work or show up]. I have created a digital trust certificate for it. However it is alot of steps to install this for the basic user. Is there a way to create a button that will do what I want without using a macro code. In that it will be able to go to many different users and wont have to worry about the buttons not working because of security settings?

Macro Security (saying That The Macro Security Level Is Too High)

Nov 18, 2008

I have a sheet that will not let me use macros. I can record them, but when I go to use them it says that the Macro security level is too high. I change it to Medium or Low but it doesn't make a difference.

The same spreadsheet works with Macros on another computer, but not my main one.

Macro To Delete Vba Code - Macro Security Warning

Feb 7, 2008

I have recently grabbed the very helpful "Macro to delete VBA code" from this site, and it's working but with one small problem.

My worksheet runs a lot of code, then deletes all macro code and saves itself.

The problem is the next time i open I still get the macro security warning!

I've checked thoroughly and there is definatley no vba left anywhere.

If I open the document, enable macros, and save it, then open it again, I no longer get the warning.

Are You Sure - Security For Macro

Aug 7, 2007

I have a spreadsheet that I regularly have to clear the data and start over on, so i recorded a macro for clearing this rather long sheet with only one cllick.

My problem is that i am not the only person who will use this sheet, if They click the control button by mistake they will clear their work and you cannot undo it. I was wondering if i could make it ask "are you sure" kind of like the save option when closing an unsaved document.

Xl Macro Cant Email Due To Outlook Security

Jul 3, 2002

I've written code into excel that sends workbooks to email recipients. This works fine except for use on one friends computer. Of course it's the friend that needed the code in the first place.
What happens is that when the macro attempts to mail a spreadsheet an outlook popup occurrs warning that a macro is attempting to email a message. And so nothing gets emailed out!

Macro To Compare Security Codes

Jul 18, 2008

I have 4 worksheets in a workbook: “choose security”, “download”, “MC” and “Lending”,

In the choose security” worksheet in CELL A2 is an HEX code, i.e. stock code.

2. In MC worksheet is raw data of all holdings related to various p’folios and securities, the information we need from this worksheet is,

a) p’folios, which are in column A,
b) Holdings which is Col B
c) Security code i.e. stock code which is in Col D

I need a macro or a formula to look at what security code is in “choose security” worksheet CELL A2, then look for this security in worksheet “MC” Col D, once matched, copy the data for this security to worksheet “download” and paste in CELL A3, I only need p’folios and holdings to be copied to “download” so data in Col A and B.

Once data has been copied to worksheet “download”, I then need another macro or formula to repeat step 2, but this time the macro will be looking at worksheet “Lending”,

a) P’folios, which are in Col B
b) Security code is in Col D
c) Holdings is in Col H

Once the macro or formula has found a match of security code, it will then copy the data from Col B and H to download worksheet CELL E3.

Trusted Macro Regardless Of Security Setting

Oct 22, 2009

I've been told the latest Excels will allow any workbooks in a certain folder
to run macros as trusted (regardless of security setting?).

Can anyone confirm this please? Is there more to it? What versions are affected? Mine is 2003 so I can't check for this.

Macro To Change Security Settings

Aug 6, 2008

Is there anyway to change the security settings in Excel 2007 using VB macros? I have tried to record the macro as I change the settings but nothings is recorded.
Basically I have two workbooks, and I want to run one of the macros within workbook 1 from workbook 2. This is straight forward, however why I try to run it, excel says that the macros are disabled in the other workbook, but I know they are not, they are all enabled (bottom option)

I was hoping to find some way of fooling Excel into thinking the macros were enabled by changing the security settings (actually keeping them the same, but making excel think that i've changed them) before I try to the macro from the other sheet. I don't know if i've explained myself very well here, I hope I have, if not let me know and i'll try to go into more detail.

Display Macro Security Level Code

Sep 6, 2006

Although not a complete novice, I am fairly new to EXCEL/VBA.
Is there a script that can be embedded into an EXCEL workbook that checks the Macro security of the PC, and if set to HIGH, shows a message that states that "Macro security is too high to open this workbook".
With security set to high, Excel will open my w/ book, but not run any of my checks that are set in the module. So a "catch 22" really, I need the macros to run to that it is being opened on an authorised computer etc, but if security is set to HIGH, then they don't run, similarly, if I put a macro in to check the macro setting, it won't run unless the security is set to medium.

Excel 2007 :: How To Detect Macro Security Level

Jul 24, 2014

is it possible through vba code to determine the macro security level of Excel 2007 and inform the user. I tried the code below , it is executed when the workbook is opened, but it doesn't work.The code below is executed only when the macro security level is "Low". My goal is at least to inform , with a msgbox function, to change manually the security level.


Dim secAutomation As MsoAutomationSecurity
Dim zLevel
As String
secAutomation = Application.AutomationSecurity
Select Case secAutomation

Excel 2007 :: Any Way To Call Security Alert To Enable Macro

Jun 28, 2012

I'm trying to find out if there is a way to call the security alert to enable a macro. Let me explain...I was working on a sheet with a macro that I hadn't enabled yet. After working for awhile the option to enable it was gone and I found that I had to close the fine and re-open to enable the macro. I'm wondering if there is a ribbon or short cut icon to put in my access toolbar that will give me the option to enable/disable the macro. Seems strange that in 2003 I could to this, but in 2007 I have to close the file.

Changing Worksheet In A Formula?

Dec 13, 2012

Trying to increment worksheet in order to summarize data from all other worksheets. I have 70+ worksheets and I'm trying to copy and paste worksheet and cell reference so that the same data on each worksheet is summarized on one sheet. Worksheets are labeled Cost (1), Cost (2), Cost (3) etc. When I copy the cell reference I can't get the worksheet name to change to the next worksheet:

=+'Cost (1)'!$E$19
=+'Cost (1)'!$E$19
=+'Cost (1)'!$E$19

I want to get this

=+'Cost (1)'!$E$19
=+'Cost (2)'!$E$19
=+'Cost (3)'!$E$19

Changing A Worksheet Internal Name

Aug 4, 2009

I need to create a new worksheet and control both the internal and tab names of the worksheet. The following code works to create the new sheet, and set the external (tab) name.

Sub AddAndRenameWorksheet()

Dim ws As Worksheet

With ActiveWorkbook
.Worksheets.Add Before:=Sheets(1)
.Worksheets(1).Name = "Schedules" 'changes the external name

End With

End Sub

I do not know how to set the internal name For example, I would normally go into worksheet Properties and change the (Name) property. Is there a way to do this in VBA?

Changing Worksheet CodeName Generates Error(s)

Jan 14, 2010

Reference: [url]

I delete sheet1, copy sheet3, rename to sheet1 and then attempt to rename the CodeName to Sheet1 as well.
This worked initially with out errors.

Now on the first run of the macro it generates an error:

Run-time error '32813':
Method 'name' of object '_VBComponent' failed

This fails to rename the CodeName of "Sheet1" (.Name)
Run it again and it renames the CodeName but generates yet another error:

Run-time error '-2147221080 (800401a8)':

Automatically Filter Worksheet Based On Changing Cell Value

Apr 16, 2008

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

ActiveSheet.AutoFilterMode = False
Range("d6:g6"). AutoFilter
Range("d6:g6").AutoFilter Field:=2, Criteria1:=Range("e1"), Operator:=xlAnd, _

I've attached the file also.

What i intend to do is that : (1) if i enter a value in E3, the filter should only apply using E3 value (currently its applying E3 value but if E4 is kept blank, it takes that as = " " ) . Unfortunately, i need to have the and condition, so i have to find a way in spite of this condition. Any way out ??

(2) If i enter values in A) E3 & F3 B) E3, F3, G3...then it ahould make multiple filtering possible. But when i try to apply such a condition, the same problem as in point (1) occurs, it takes the and empty criteria range as = " "

VBA Security Options

Oct 12, 2009

We have developed an Excel workbook with hundreds of lines of VBA code written for a specific application, and we would like to protect it.

Could someone give me an idea of what security options we have over and above the below (if any)?

We have protected all sheets and the workbook itself with passwords. The VBA itself is protected with a passoword.

My understanding is that VBA can be hacked into quite there any way of adding another layer of security/protection without having to move to another platform altogether?

End Function

How would this be modified to work as a macro on selected cells (with selection?) I lost the formatting
