I am trying to complete a spreadsheet that will be shared by several users but have come across a slight problem. I need them to be able to enter text into blank cells but when the the text has been enetered for them not to be able to delete or edit it again in columns A & B. They should also not be able to delete rows or columns. I have tried with other peoples help but as soon as the spreadsheet becomes a shared document I get a run-time error 1004 when entering in any box
Is it possible to make it so that a user cannot delete or add sheets to a work book, except through buttons assigned to macros? I've tried simply locking them, but these sheets need to be accessed to input and manipulate data. I have the macros necessary to delete/add sheets, but right now they are redundant since the user can simply do it manually.
I have a worksheet with multiple entry boxes in a row. Depending on the value in one row, another row will either yield the result from a formula, or remain blank, and this cell needs to be locked. I was able to do this by first putting the formula into the destination cell, and then using custom data validation that says the cell value = "". So this prevents anyone from typing in that cell, no matter if it yields the formula result or must stay blank. What it doesn't protect against is someone deleting the contents of the cell. The reason I don't want to protect the cell is because I want people to be able to highlight the whole row past that cell and delete it all at once. So either using Data Validation, a formula, or VB programming I need to not allow someone to do ANYTHING to that cell, even delete the contents, without locking the cell. Hopefully it can be done, thanks!
For example, if E17 = "X", then K17 = INPUT!$M$28*J17. If E17 <> "X" then K17 is blank. Either way, I don't want any typing or deleting of K17. This applies for range K17:K91, and corresponding E17:E91.
I've got a workbook that I'm currently designing and I've just realised that I need to delete a few sheets, paste in some new template sheets and rename them. The problem is, I've already completed my summary sheets and I don't want to have to redo the values. Essentially, I just want to (temporarily) turn off auto-updating of formulas when cells / sheets are changed/moved/deleted.
For practical purposes: I need to delete the sheet named "Jan", paste in a new sheet "MonthTemp", rename "MonthTemp" to "Jan" and have all my formulas not updated (e.g. still referencing "Jan" instead of "#REF!")
I have a shared spreadsheet which contains only very simple "sum" formula's and I am trying to stop users accidently deleting them when they are inputting numbers.
I have tried using data validation, but that only stopped people overwriting the formula and not deleting them.
I also tried protecting the sheet, leaving only a cell range which users were allowed to edit, which worked... BUT I also have several rows which are grouped and when I protect the sheet, I cannot collapse and/or expand these groups.
I'm getting a type mismatch (Runtime Error 13) with this code. What I want it to do is delete the contents of the cell if it contains 'N/A'.
Sub RemoveNAs() Dim word word = "N/A" For Across = 1 To 5 For Down = 2 To 150 Cells(Down, Across).Select If Cells(Down, Across) = word Then Cells(Down, Across) = "" End If Next Down Next Across End Sub
I have a spreadsheet that is emailed to someone to fill in. They then fill in some information and send it on to someone else.
Sometimes they don't fill in all the information so is it possible to have excel check that cells are filled in and to prevent someone from saving unless this is so? Or maybe a message stating that the cells need to be completed if Excel is being closed or saved?
What formula can I use to accomplish the following, if it can be done.
If B9 is 100% all the rest of the % cell inputs would be 0%
If B9 is less 100% ,lets say 50% all the rest of the % cell inputs would be less than or equal to 50% until any sum of those cells equal to 100% in which case if I enter 50% on B9 and 25% on D9 and 25% on F9 their total sum would be 100%.
If I try to enter a % on H9 it should not allow me to do it because then the total sum on O9 would be more the the original amount on A9
The attached file contains hypothetical data on a basketball player's success from the free throw line. It lists the number of free throws attempted and the number made and then divides the number made by the number attempted to calculate the free throw percentage. However, I keep getting a # DIV/0! error in the games free throws weren't taken. How do I write the code so that when the error occurs, a message is displayed to the effect that no percentage can be reported because no free throws were attempted by checking the cell in column D? How do I use the IsError function to figure this out?
I'm creating a maths workbook in Excel. I want the user to workout the answer in his/her head and enter the answer into Excel. The only problem is, of course, that there is nothing stopping a user from simply typing a formula to obtain the answer! I have tried all data validation, apart from Custom which I can't figure out. Is there a way to prevent a user entering a formula on a worksheet?
I've got an issue where Formulas Referencing Cells on another sheet are getting changed automatically to refer the the moved cell data. The formulas on a sheet (2) refer to specific cells on sheet (1) within my workbook. I update Sheet(1) data with a macro. When sheet (1) updates, the present data gets shifted to the right.
In other words, I need to prevent the formulas from changing to reference the moved data values and keep referencing the initial cell with the new values. xample of change that occurs with update:
Dim rng As Range Dim i As Integer, counter As Integer
Set rng = Range("1:1")
i = 1
For counter = 1 To rng.Columns.Count
'If cell i in the range contains an "x", 'delete the column If rng.Cells(i) = "x" Then rng.Cells(i).EntireColumn.Delete Else i = i + 1 End If
My problem is that I have cells in other worksheets linked to the worksheet that is running this macro and everytime I run it, I get a handful of "#REF" errors. I think this problem might be solved if I could simply delete the contents of the column rather than deleting the entire column. How can I modify my code to do this?
The following attacted program is a name generator. It randomly generates names from the Roster sheet to the shuffle sheet (to be randomized) then displays it on the watchbill sheet. The problem I'm having is that the names seem to be repeating themselves before the entire list is used at least once from the roster sheet. I need all the names to generate at least once then have it fairly repeat the names (but not in the same columns on the watchbill sheet). Can this be done using the formulas I have? I've been trying to figure this out forever, its just a little beyond my level.
I Spoke too soon here, I am getting value errors, how to do it with conditional formating. I tried if cell value is =to #DIV/0! then white (dosent work). Richard this dosent seem to work mate =IF(SUM(F6:V6),"",AL6/SUM(F6:V6))
I have an IF formula on one worksheet that refers to another worksheet (ex: =IF(Page1!$A13="";"";Page1!$A13). The problem is when I move data from one cell to another the formula becomes #REF. (ex: =IF(Page1!#REF="";"";Page1!#REF)).
I have a series of worksheets, named, 'sheet1' 'sheet2' etc. through to 'sheet10'. A final worksheet, 'sheet11' has been produced that uses the formula: address=Sheet1!A1, address=Sheet2!A1, address =Sheet3!A1 etc. The same goes for other identical cells on each of the sheets. I am at the moment entering each cell on 'sheet 11' separately because if I copy the formula down it progressively changes the cell value and not the sheet number. How can I produce a formula whereby the cells remain identical but the sheets change progressively?
