Protect Select Range Of Cells From Being Changed?

Mar 5, 2013

How do I protect a select range of cells from being changed? There may be some formulas in certain cells, which produce data based on other worksheet cells. These cells are not for user data input, but for data output only. I don't want end users to acidently delete the formulas in cetain range of cells, by entering a value in the cell, which then will write over the formula.

Lock/Protect Select Cells Only

Apr 17, 2008

In the attached example, I have two fields. In the first (top), I have fields I want the user to be able to enter data (revenue/weight/skids). The information at the bottom is generated by formulas that act on the user-provided data and display the results at the bottom. The key, though, is keeping Excel-ignorant users from inadvertantly destroying the formulas and data in the middle section. I still need to display the results at each step, though, so hiding those middle fields is not an option. How can I lock only some cells within a single spreadsheet like this?

When Protect A Worksheet Then Only UNLOCKED Select CELLS

Oct 5, 2006

Ok I've spent over 2 hours reading MANY peoples issues with this "BUG". Back in 2003 was the earliest... no one has an answer that works.

When you protect a worksheet and only have UNLOCKED CELLS selected...somehow through loading and unloading the file... you can select locked cells....
I can not find a pattern but many people have had this issue all with no concrete answers.

Just by loading and saving, exit and loading and saving, exit and loading.... i can now select locked cells that I previously couldn't. (I can't do anything as it's still protected...) It's a pain because it wrecks my tab flow.

Protect Sheet Name From Being Changed

Jan 16, 2008

Can you protect a sheet name from being changed by a user?

Can you protect a sheet from being deleted by a user?

I have an Excel 2003 file available to all employees on a network. There are three sheets. Two sheets are protected with passwords and users can not enter any data on them. They are used to hold data needed by the third sheet.

The third sheet (named FORM) is for user input. FORM has a majority of the cells protected with a password. Users can enter information, save the file, print the sheet, or make duplicates of the sheet. The sheet contains data validations, conditional formatting, and formulas.

I have some VBA which acts on all the sheets (even those which users might have inserted) making them visible (very hidden) or not. When a user opens the file (whether for the first time or after adding sheets), I always want them to have FORM unhidden. I have VBA to do this but what if a user changes the name of the sheet? CRASH!

Excel 2007 :: Protect Formulas For Being Changed / Deleted?

Sep 6, 2013

I have a lot of formulas that I don't want to be changed or deleted, but I still want the user to be able to enter data into the cells.

If I use "Protect sheet" I can't select a cell or enter something into it. I sure there is some setting I have to change, but I'm not sure what to select.

I'm using excel 2007

Adjust VBA Code To Run Only When Cells In Certain Range Are Changed

Feb 26, 2014

I've managed to piece together a VBA code that works perfectly for my needs. The problem is that the sheet it is on gets adjusted a lot, and I only need the code to run when certain cells are changed (rather than each time any cell is changed).

Here is the code I have now:

[Code] .....

Put simply, I need this code to run only when a cell in Range "TValueDeal" is changed. Is making this adjustment as simple as adding a couple lines of code, or is there a better way to write the entire thing?

Run VBA Code Any Time A Particular Range Of Cells Is Changed

Aug 23, 2002

Is there a way to cause a particular VB function I write to execute any time a value in a particular range of cells is changed?

I thought I had it when I thought I could do a sum formula, range on the cells to be checked, then call the function as a side effect of this sum. It was then that I realized I didn't know how to call VB from within an Excel cell formula.

1. Is there a way to call VB (say, sheet1.myFunction())?

2. Is there a better way to do what I want than to try to hack a side effect into a formula in a cell that depends on a sum (which "watches" for the changes for me.)

The cells would have text in them, not numbers, so using the sum-based formula would be iffy at runtime to me at best. What I really want to do is run a function on the cell value as a string. There are a lot of such cells (thousands) so ideally I would only need one external cell to activate the function (which scans all the cells I am concerned with) rather than have to paste a custom, relative formula into thousands of cells manually to have each one watch one cell, if you know what I mean.

How Do You Select A Range Of Cells On Another Worksheet Using The Cells Property

Apr 19, 2007

I seem to be going round and round in circles with this, but I'm sure it should be easy.

I'm just trying to select a range of cells in Sheet2 of my workbook.
I've tried many different bits of code, including:

Dim namesTotal As Integer

namesTotal = 2500

Sheets("Sheet2").Activate
ActiveSheet.Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(namesTotal, 8)).Select

(According to the Microsoft website, this is supposed to be the way to do it?)

Can't Select Range Of Cells

Why the following code gives me an error. I have so much trouble with ranges, I use the syntax as it is prescribed. Here is the code. I will include some code lines underneath since I imagine they wont work either.

I eventually will be turning the range statements into copy and paste instead of select. At the moment I am using select to make sure the proper cells are being selected.

I am also attaching my complete workbook as well.

Select A Range Of Non-adjacent Cells

Jun 29, 2006

I have a series of data values in non-adjacent columns in an excel spreadsheet.

In the following example, assume the | (vertical bar) refers to the start of
a new cell:

F|45|A|30|F|15|F|10

Using the SUMIF formula, I want to add all numbers which are preceded by a
cell containing the letter F.

SUMIF(A1:G1,"F",B1:H1)

What I need to do is specify a range of every second cell in the row (starting with Cell A1) for validating they equal F, and a range of the alternating cells (starting in column B1) for the range containing the data to add. How can I specify these ranges (I can't name each cell individually as I have more than 30 cells to add up in my real life situation and the IF function allows selection of no more than 30 values)?

Select Unlocked Cells In A Range

Oct 4, 2012

I'm looking for a macro that only selects the unprotected cells in a range. So that I can copy a formula in these cells.

I found the below macro on the web but it will select all the unprotected cells in the worksheet. I guess this one can easily be adjusted to only select the cells in a range, but I do not know how to do this.

Code:

Sub SelectUnlockedCells()
Dim WorkRange As Range
Dim FoundCells As Range
Dim Cell As Range
Set WorkRange = ActiveSheet.UsedRange
For Each Cell In WorkRange
If Cell.Locked = False Then

Jun 21, 2013

I have come up with this bit of code by joining in two separate sets of code that I used earlier. What I want to do is this, for a given range I need to find each cell that has a comma and once that cell is found a formula has to be applied in a cell few columns to the left.. Here is the code that I am using..

Code:
Sub Macro8()
Dim i As Long
For i = 1 To 1000

[Code]...

The sheet can be downloaded from here, I want column H to be (Col B / Col C) whenever Col A has a cell with comma in it. For this sheet col H needs to be populated 3 in places. The code above does it only for first instance.

Select Blank Cells In Range

Mar 12, 2008

I have a spreadsheet which always contains data beginning in column A and through row H. However, there may be blank cell(s) in columns B through G. Therefore, if I use

Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select

it will not take me to column H if say column d has a blank cell. The same applies to my rows which always vary.

Loop To Select Range Of Cells Representing A Month....

Jan 30, 2008

I've never worked with Excel macros prior to today. I'm working on this for a friend.

I've got this sheet that's going to a web address, importing a table from the page, and making a line graph of the data. I got all that to work fine (after a lot of trial and error). Now I've got the data, and I want to make a scatter plot of it...

Here's the thing. I want each month of the data represented as a line on the plot.

This is hard to explain. It looks like this:
[url]

So from there, I want a loop to scroll through the dates and select a range that represents January, a range that represents February, etc, so I can save those ranges as variables and make a scatter plot with 12 curves on it.

Here is the code I have so far, in case you want to see it, not sure why you might need to though.

My data begins on row 3, and the rows with data varies from row 7 through 120. The columns with data is constant so there is no need to test in that direction.
