Prevent Worksheet Scrolling

Oct 19, 2007

I have an excel sheet embedded in a Powerpoint presentation, but I have the problem that users are editing the sheet and accidently or unknowingly scrolling around. This results in the window resizing itself when the exit the object and messing up the appearance of the presentation. Is there a way of easily preventing scrolling (either via VBA or other)? I can obviously hide the scroll bars but that does not prevent the use of the mouse's scroll-wheel. I have also already hidden all unused columns and rows so that they cannot oversize the window.

Prevent The User From Scrolling In A Sheet?

May 14, 2007

I have an Excel sheet that displays 50 rows and 20 columns when it is opened the first time. These rows and columns are the only ones that I want the user to be able to see. The user shouldn't be able to navigate the sheet by using the scroll bars or the wheel on the mouse. I have of course already removed the scroll bars but I don't know how to handle the scroll wheel problem.

Excel 2010 :: Prevent Scrolling To Bottom Row

Jun 28, 2011

I'm currently creating a workbook whereby I have (regrettably) highlighted entire columns and formatted these columns to show borders. The reason I did this was because drawing them in manually (I thought) would take much longer with the way the worksheet is laid out.

Obviously highlighting the entire column has meant that borders were drawn all the way down to the bottom row of the workbook, and so the vertical scroll bar cannot effectively be 'dragged' up and down as even a tiny movement will cause it to scroll right past the worksheet.

I have tried running a macro to clear contents and formatting for all the unused rows, but the scroll bar remains to be a pain.

I want the scroll bar to only scroll down to a few cells below the available work space like it should do.

Trap Worksheet Scrolling

Sep 17, 2008

When the user scrolls the worksheet (using a scroll wheel, or the scroll bars) I would like to have a VBA-code triggered, but in Excel 2003 there is no "VBA-event" for scrolling...

Is there any way of trapping that a scroll has happened, even if the selection didn't change?

Keep Chart Stationary On Worksheet When Scrolling?

May 23, 2011

able to keep a chart stationary while scrolling through a worksheet entering data. A few points:

1) 'Freeze pane' wouldn't work for me since the chart is too large and I'd prefer to have the data sheet unfrozen for easy perusal.

2) I saw mention of opening a separate window with the chart in it, while having the workbook window aligned next to it. I don't know if that can work, but I'd also prefer to just have the chart on the worksheet and stationary.

Limiting Scrolling Area On A Worksheet

Sep 18, 2008

When I limit the scrolling area in a worksheet, and it works there and then, when I close and reopen the whorkbook, the limiting does not work.

This is how I do it:-

I Right-click the sheet tab for the sheet which I want to place a limit.
In the resulting Context menu, I choose View Code. The VBA editor appears and asks for the password to view the code. I keyin the password

I then set in my limit as B2:O25

Then I close the VBA Editor and display the worksheet where I try and I find it working.

I close and save the workbook.

When I reopen the limiting has disaapeared!

Scrolling And Freezing Worksheet Areas

I'm trying to set this so the scrollable range will automatically expand horizontally as user data is added to the last (h etc) column.

Worksheet Scrolling With Scroll Wheel Is Broken

Oct 22, 2008

I have a workbook with 8 sheets, one of which is the "main" sheet that holds all of my user data for logins at my job (I'm in IT). There are about 4300 users and 23 fields for each user, so there are 4300 rows in the sheet. Other sheets in the book are important, but not as much as this one.

The workbook has a total of over 1000 lines of VBA code right now, as I'm building a tool that finds users, adds users, modifies users, etc. (I know, Access would be smarter for this, but for some reason they want me to use an xls). Most of this code works with the sheet that I'm having the problem on.

This ONE sheet has seemed to disable the functionality of the scroll wheel, and I can't use Page Up or Page Down while in the sheet either. Also, if I select cells with VBA (Sheet2.Range(<range>).Select), it will select the cell, but it will not draw focus to that cell on screen (the sheet will not move at all). The other 7 sheets in the workbook have all regular functionality.

This just started happening a couple days ago, and I've been building the code for about a week, so I'm wondering if it's something in the code...?

Does anyone have any idea what might cause this?

Prevent VBA Functions From Being Available On Worksheet

Jul 9, 2014

I use a few Functions in my VBA code. All these functions, are declared as "Public", and reside in a single module. However, they are called from many different modules during code execution. (i.e. many functions called from many modules - hence the "Public" declaration).

My issue is that in addition to being available to different VBA Modules, these Functions are also available on the worksheet as a UDF (so if a user presses "=" in the formula bar, the auto-complete shows these functions when the first characters match). Is there a way to remove the availability of the function on user worksheet? i.e. to allow a Function to be called from different modules in VBA, but prevent it from being available on the worksheet.

My current work-around is to prefix all Public Function names with letter "j" - as no excel formula seems to begin with it - none of them show up as auto-complete options. Nevertheless, the Functions are still available to the user - which is what I would like to prevent.

Prevent Delete Worksheet

Aug 7, 2009

An old post provided the following macros that purportedly prevent users from deleting a worksheet. Unfortunately, it also makes it so you can't delete ANY worksheet in ANY file, which is of course not what was intended. Need figure a way to remove this nuisance? All attempts to delete a sheet keep looking back to the offending workbook, even though the macro has since been deleted from it.

Try pasting the following two event procedures into the Help sheet module:

Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
Dim CB As CommandBar
Dim Ctrl As CommandBarControl
For Each CB In Application.CommandBars
Set Ctrl = CB.FindControl(ID:=847, recursive:=True)
If Not Ctrl Is Nothing Then
Ctrl.OnAction = "RefuseToDelete"
Ctrl.State = msoButtonUp
End If
End Sub................

VBA - How To Write A Sub To Prevent All Changes To WorkSheet

Prevent Worksheet Protection

Aug 18, 2007

I have a workbook for which I would like to protect the worksheets, while still allowing my code to alter the worksheets, which can be done with the line:

Sheet1.Protect Password="abc" UserInterfaceOnly:=True

However, I want allow some users (who know the password) to be able to unprotect the sheet if they need to edit it, then turn the protection back on after they are done. How can I make sure that they use my macro to protect the sheet with UserInterfaceOnly set to true, rather than the standard way to turn on protection?
That is, is there a way I can prevent the user from being able to protect the sheet with the Tools->Protection->Protect Sheet menu item?

Prevent Referencing Hidden Worksheet

Jun 3, 2008

I have a spreadsheet which I'm using as a log-in front for a series of other workbooks. The usernames and passwords are stored hidden cells within a "very hidden" worksheet. The workbook is protected and VBA code itself is password protected.

In short no-one can directly view the passwords (unless the password to unprotect it all is known.

What I have found is that someone can use a formula to reference the cells containing the user details. "=a1" for example.

Is the a method hiding the contents of a cell from excel itself? I want the vba script to be able to see the value, but any "=a1" formulas to return a blank.

Code To Prevent Editing & Selecting Of Range Worksheet

Sep 3, 2008

I have the following code that Ger Plante very kindly helped me with which, depending on whether there is an 'x' by someone's name in a list, creates a new workbook, copies some information to it and saves it before moving on to the next 'x'. Loop Through Rows & Copy Each Row To New Workbook

For lLoop = 2 To 251 'first row of data to last row.
If ws1.Cells(lLoop, 4).Value = "x" Then '4 = Column D
ws1.Range("e" & lLoop & ":g" & lLoop).Copy
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=True
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteAll, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteColumnWidths, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
ActiveSheet.SaveAs varPath & "Student Data Files" & ActiveSheet.Range("B1") & ".xls"

End If

Next lLoop

how I can modify the code such that any cells in the range "b1:b504" in Sheet1 of the the new workbook can't be selected or edited without a password....I have tried unsuccessfully using Protect but am not sure how to get vba to set it to specific cells and determine exactly what is allowed in those cells.

Prevent Worksheet Change Event Causing Chain Reaction

Jan 14, 2008

I'd like the users to be able to change some detail in a couple of places and have it updated throughout the spreadsheet. Basically, the user can change the line name in any of the input sheets and the code changes the sheet name, and searches for the reference to the old name in the overview sheet and changes it accordingly.

The problem I have at the moment is that I would also like the user to be able to change the line name from the overview sheet too... I am having trouble thinking how to have similar code in the "Overview" sheets Worksheet_Change event without getting into a big constant loop... e.g. if the line name is changed via code on the individual input sheets won't that then trigger the first code, which will trigger the second etc. etc. I have the following code in the ThisWorkbook section:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
Dim sName As String
Dim sOldName As String
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
sOldName = ActiveSheet.Name
If Target.Address <> "$B$1" Then Exit Sub
sName = ActiveSheet.Range("B1")
On Error Goto ErrorHandler
ActiveSheet.Name = sName
On Error Goto 0
Sheet8.Select 'this is the overview sheet
Cells. Find(What:=sOldName, LookIn:=xlValues, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate........................

Scrolling Of Several Windows

way of getting two sheets to scroll together, so when I scroll one window the other one moves too? Some text editors have that future (IIRC UltraEdit does)

I can't find a scroll event in the windows code to trigger a macro to run itself.

I can get around it by using a selection change event which would restrict me to moving around with the cursor keys/Pageup/down, but I've got 15,000 to review regularly in a short space of time and it would be quicker by mouse

There doesn't appear to be any coding on the sheet.

Scrolling In Userforms Without Scrollbars

I want is a form that has three different partsof it. Each part containing checkboxes, a spreadsheet, textboxes and labels. But I only want to display one of these parts at a time, depending on what the user clicks.
I know I could write code to move everything into the visible part of the form but that would be messy. I hoped I could find some way to instead move the visible part. Like if I had scrolled.

An example. Say the visible form is 100 high and 100 wide. When opening you see from the width 0-100 and height 0-100 (pixels or whatever those things sould be called). Upon pressing a button I instead want to see width 101-201 and height 101-201.
