Password Box To Show Automatically

Oct 15, 2008

I have protected a few hidden columnx in my worksheet and have sent it to my client who has the password.

He had a complain. Every time he wants to unhide the columns, he gets an alert to unprotect the workbook. The process of going to the Review tab and pressing the unprotect tab is what he finds annoying. My questions is the following; Is there any way that the password box immediately appears once he attempts to unhide the columns?

Automatically Enter Password

Apr 3, 2007

I have recently written some programming in a spreadsheet (1) which, on opening, opens up another spreadheet(2), ammends this spreadsheet(2), and then closes it before the user can start using the original one(1). This is done to monitor the usage. The information added into the atomatically opened spreadsheet(2) includes date and time of opening and the users id as well as adding 1 to counter cells. Both .xls files are located on the same server and I dont want people to catch on to the monitoring and if they do I dont want them to then go into this file(2) and remove their information.

If I password protect this file(2) it then promts to enter a password when it runs at the startup of the initial spreadsheet(1) which is no good as it would defeat the purpose if the user knew the password. Is it possible to add a few lines into the code (see below) after it initiates the opening of the usage file?

Private Sub workbook_open()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"S:Newman CommonCATEGORY MANAGEMENT - RangesEPoS Usage.xls"
Dim Counter As Integer
Counter = Cells(2, 7)
Counter = Counter + 1
Cells(2, 7) = Counter
Cells(Rows.Count, "BV").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0) = Now
Cells(Rows.Count, "BW").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0) = Application.UserName
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Hide & Show Sheets Automatically

Dec 28, 2006

I would like to be able to use the before save event to hide some sheets before the save then after unhide some sheets. So that the user carrys on with the sheets they had before saving but when the document is reopened the correct sheets are hidden.

This is what I have so far but unfortunately when you click close and then save changes it runs the before save code and then goes around in circles, reasking the user if they want to save changes

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim ws As Worksheet

Cancel = True
Application.EnableEvents = False
Sheets("Protected Content").Visible = True
For Each ws In Worksheets
If ws. Name <> "Protected Content" Then ws.Visible = False
Next ws
For Each ws In Worksheets
ws.Visible = True
Next ws
Sheets("Protected Content").Visible = False
Application.EnableEvents = True

End Sub

Automatically Show Range Address Of Selection

Jun 21, 2008

does excel have a function or some kind of method where you can have it display the range of cells that you have selected? For example, if I highlight cells A5:G7 what would be the code for excel to display "A5:G7" in a message box? I need this to be dynamic, so the next time I select cells B3:T32, it needs to display "B3:T32."

How To Make Date To Automatically Show Up In Current Year

Dec 11, 2011

how to make a date automatically show up in the current year.

For example, if A1 = 6/2/2005, and I want B1 to equal that same month and day, but 2011... How can I do that?

I know =6/2/2005 + 365*6 would work, but the date in A1 will vary... so it has to be a way of showing ANY date with ANY year with the same month/day but current year.

Automatically Expand Row Depth To Show Cell Content

Jan 3, 2006

I have a spreadsheet with a master front page, which basically copies the contents of other cells in other sheets for it's own content. ie:-

the formula in cell E16 on the master sheet is ='Sheet 7'!$B$16 (Please note that cell B16 is actually a merged range of B16 to H16)

Everything works fine until such time as the orginal cell contains an amount of text which is deeper than the cell on the master page eg cell B16 on sheet 7 is 330 pixels deep while the cell E16 in the master sheet is only 16 pixels deep.

What I would like to happen is for row 16 in the master sheet to expand in depth by whatever is requried to automatically show the full content of B16 on sheet 7.

Automatically Hide / Show Rows Based On Cell Value

Feb 27, 2008

I wrote a small code to hide some columns if a certain cell is equal to a certain string.

The cell is actually a drop down list and when they select a certain one, I want it to hide 2 columns. So I wrote the code with sub name Action, but I want it to be running all the time. I tried to achieve this by writing the following code however it gave me error 438 for my 2nd line.

Sub Auto_Open()
Range("A1").OnEntry = "Action"
End Sub

Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;Oh, by the way error 438 states: Object doesn't support this property or method

AutoFilter Multiple Field Automatically (and Show All If Criteria Is Blank)

Jun 11, 2014

I am looking to adapt a piece of code (originally created by Ger Plante) so that it autofilters multiple columns of a table. I have three data validated lists that need to search 3 different columns in the table and filter accordingly, but also show all if no hits are made (hence why Ger Plante's code) was perfect in most respects. I would ideally like to keep the code as a Worksheet_Change event, but can deal with it being run as a normal Macro via a button if this is necessary.


Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("B1")) Is Nothing Then
Range("A5:C5").AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=IIf(Trim(Range("B1").Text) = "", "<>", "=") & Range("B1").Text
End If
End Sub

Efficient Entry Of Data & Automatically Have Their Price Show In Adjacent Cell

Aug 13, 2009

I own a Hair Salon which collates its daily takings using a spreadsheet. A section of this takings sheet asks staff to enter which Products have been sold and what they where sold for (RRP), so that once all products have been entered, totals at the end of the day allowing the end -of-day "till-up" process to reconcile purchases and services rendered aginst cash and cheques received.

Unfortunately there is over 600 products to choose from and this evergroes as new products are introduced by manufacturers. Names are long and often very similar, and product price manual listings are slow to reference, therefore the customer has to wait while the staff find the right product and select the right price.

All of this is subject to human error. What i would like is simply to enter part of the product name into a Cell and the right product to be visibly selectable and the price automatically added to an adjacent cell.

Password Protect: Unlock The Worksheet, Autofilter It, Print It, Unfilter It, And Password Protect The Sheet Again?

I have a sheet that is password protected. I have this code attached to a command button. It will unlock the worksheet, autofilter it, print it, unfilter it, and password protect the sheet again.

ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, Collate:=True

Another Sheet To Show Each Class Down The Rows And The Columns To Show Each School Rule

Mar 20, 2009

I have an excel 2003 sheet that collects data from Infopath forms. The forms are to record students who have broken school rules, when, where, repercussions etc. One column shows their class and there is a separate column for each rule broken.

I want to create another sheet to show each class down the rows and the columns to show each school rule. Therefore, each cell would show the number of each particular rule broken for each particular class. I have tried to do countif and sumproduct (if on sheet 1, column B the class is KA and on sheet 1, column M, the rule is bullying = how many times this has occurred).

If A Cell Has Data Show It If Not Show 0

Oct 9, 2009

I have a column of data held in column B.

I am required to show the following.

If there is data in the cell then it is to be left. If there is no data in the cell then I would like to show the value 0.

I have tried using a circular reference, using the formula =IF(ISBLANK(B1),0,B1) and other similar formulas but they dont work as the formula overwrites the data in it.

do I need a macro?, or conditional formatting?

Show Data In Cell Only If Other Cells Show Data

Sep 8, 2009

I have 2 different formulas that I need changed in a similar way.

The first formula is for cell AV11:

Every cell starts off blank.

What I need is for cell AV11 to always start off blank until data is entered into one of the other cells. The problem is that since the sum always needs to be +10 only when data is entered in the other cells, I don't know how to keep 10 from showing in cell AV11 when no data is typed in the other cells.

The other formula is for cell CO39:

I pretty much need the same thing. If no data is entered in cell CU8, then I do not want cell CO39 to show the 3.

VBA Password

Dec 14, 2006

When using the a file with VBA based on a button is there any way to add a password to that file at the same time?

That way it can be opened by anyone?

The code below works fine but the user can open the file in fact anyone can once they press the command button I want to add a password so when the file is reopened it requires a password?

Is this some thing vba even does?

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Const PTHNAME As String = "C:Feedback"
Dim FileNameWithDate As String, x As Integer

FileNameWithDate = Format(Date, "yyyymmdd")

x = 1

If Dir(PTHNAME & FileNameWithDate & ".xls") = "" Then
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=PTHNAME & FileNameWithDate & ".xls"
Do Until Dir(PTHNAME & FileNameWithDate & x & ".xls") = ""
x = x + 1
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=PTHNAME & FileNameWithDate & x & ".xls"
End If
End Sub
