One of my work colleagues need to add a worksheet to an existing Excel Spreadsheet which has VBA behind it, but the worksheet is password protected. The developer who wrote the application has now left, so we have no idea what the password is. Is there anyway of getting round it, like cracking into the spreadsheet to find out the password, or another way?
Code: Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range) ActiveSheet.Unprotect ("kellyz") If Intersect(Target, Columns("o:o")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub For Each C In Intersect(Target, Columns("O:O"))
As soon as i type anything in the columns, my sheet is unprotected. I need the sheet protected so that the users can not change my formulas.

I have this password protected Excel template (v.2002), it includes one particular drop-down box, which is not a data validation choice selection, but a 'object' drop-down box which offers choices linked to a hidden value, via the INDEX function. The issue arises when I password protect the template and attempt to select from the available choices, I get a dialog box telling me the "the cell or chart...is password protected and...read-only"..."To modify...remove protection". I imagined checking the "Edit Objects" selection, upon protecting the worksheet would have avoided any problems, but that doesn't do the job.
I have a spreadsheet, which has certain worksheets that are password protected. I need to make changes to some of the formulas, and the VBA modules, however I cannot remember the password!! Is there a way of identifying the password??
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" ....
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.
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.
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.
I am trying to import data into Excel from a webpage using the web query function; however, the webpage requires a login and password. I have the required login and password, but I cannot figure out how to make excel automatically input these into the correct fields and login in order to import the data.
Since I am trying to make all of our databases update automatically, I don't want to enter this info everyday when the macro runs.
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:
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.
I want to create a simple form for employees to enter their number of hours worked for the day. Driver name, Start Time, Finish Time and date. I need this information to populate an excel spreadsheet but I don't want the employees to be able to view the data that is being put in. Also possibly throw an error if the same employee accidentally enters their information twice.
I have written a macro to select a range of cells one by one and open the excel files mentioned in them and execute a task. It works fine. But I want the system to see if the file exists in its folder or if the file is password protected (for opening). Either of the case the file should be skipped without a warning message and any attempt to open. I need a macro for that. Following is the way the cell contents are
I:ORDERSS-S 10ALIYAMARKET ORDERSADDADD-LADIES-LEGGINGS-13246.xls I:ORDERSS-S 10ALIYAMARKET ORDERSADDADD-LADIES-PANTS-13247.xls I:ORDERSS-S 10ALIYAMARKET ORDERSADDADD-LADIES-SHORTS-13244.xls I:ORDERSS-S 10MICHELLEGAMESWORLDWIDE COMPANYWORLDWIDE COMPANY - GAMES - 10014.xls
And following is the VBA code I wrote. It it almost stops when reaching a non-existing file name
I need to protect the VBA Password protected module from being hacked. Now a days there are VBA password recovery tools which are easily available on the net & can be downloaded to break the protected module. I have one as well.
I can use this tool to see break my password of a protected module. How to secure my VBA modules in a project.
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.
