Macro For Protecting A Sheet

Dec 23, 2009

Excel 2002

I have a sheet that has some cells already protected by a password. I want another person to be able to make changes to the unprotected cells and then be able to push a button (macro) that will then unlock the sheet activesheet.unprotect ("mypassword"), change all the cells to "locked" and then have the protect sheet window pop open so that they can type in their own password and save it. Is that possible?

Macro For Protecting Sheet (with Same Name) On Multiple Files At Once?

Jul 19, 2014

I have a macro that duplicates a excel file into how ever many files I need... so If I need 150 copies of the the file, it will make it 150 times.

However, each file the first tab called "Clients" has information that I want protected so users can't alter it. I can't protect it before I run the duplication because the data is added by a group of people and I need it unprotected until they add the information.

What I am looking for is a macro that I can click and run, allows me to select multiple files, then it will automatically Protect Sheet 1 "Clients" on all the files I select so I don't have to open all 150 files after data is entered and Protect sheet 1 manually.

Protecting A Sheet From Deletion

Mar 26, 2007

I have a workbook with particular worksheets that should never be deleted. If they are deleted by the user the workbook will become unusable.

The users need the freedom to edit data within the sheets (so protecting them is not an option), however, I need to restrict this freedom so that they cannot under any circumstance delete the sheet. Is there such code that I could use in the worksheet code to stop this?

Protecting Data When Extracting From Another Sheet

Feb 17, 2010

I need is for the Roster sheet, which has the exact same column and row headings as the Leave sheet, to read the data from the Leave sheet and change dynamically if the Leave sheet is changed. If there is data in any cell then I need to protect just that cell in the Roster sheet so that the user creating the staff roster is unable to edit it out.

I have created a plain cut and paste macro on open from Leave to Roster but this doesn't give me the dynamic linking, and doesnt help solve the problem of needing to check each and every cell in Roster against a corresponding cell in Leave, but also if its blank in Leave to allow the user to update that cell in the Roster sheet.

Protecting Worksheets

Nov 27, 2006

I have a bunch of worksheets in my workbook say around 50

Each worksheet has the same template layout!

I am trying to figure out a macro that will select all worksheets from 'KLKN':'KFSN' and protect the cells L45:L52 accross to AL45:AL52

Unfortunately I cannot select all worksheets and protect them, instead I would have to manually do this, or create a macros that will do it for me...

Protecting All Sheets

Jul 1, 2007

I am trying to protect all sheets on a Workbook Close event.

I don't want the user to even be able to Select the Loked cells so I set it up that way through formating of cells.

This is what I have tried:

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Dim sh As Worksheet
For Each sh In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
sh.Protect Password:="P@ssword", DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True
ActiveSheet.EnableSelection = xlUnlockedCells
' sh.Protect Password:="P@ssword"
Next sh
End Sub
I even tried the commented out line in that postion instead of where it is now.

It does protect but still allows selection of locked cells.

Protecting The Document

Jan 15, 2008

Version used: Excel 2003

I have a spreadsheet that everyone in my department uses. My boss has asked me to protect certain columns so that only I can edit them but leave others so that the rest of the depratment can use those.

I have tried locking the ones I am to use and unlocking the ones the others can use then protecting the document. This works well enough as far as it goes, however, it is combersome having to unprotect then reprotect it every time I need to work on it. Also, that method makes the drop down lists that we are using for easy sorting no longer function.

Protecting A Workbook

Feb 6, 2008

I have a very large workbook - there are only five sheets of this workbook that should be viewed by anyone. What I would like to do and just can't seem to find a solution is...

I would like to set the workbook so that when opening I use a password which will give me full access to anything in the workbook - upon read only, a user would be able to open the entire workbook without a password - but only view it's contents - not be able to do any adjustments.

I have locked cells which I do not want anyone to adjust the formulas to, then protected the sheet - this works, however, because there are so many sheets, it becomes very tedious to unlock and lock sheets to work in them.
