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. However it is protecting it without a password. I need to have it protected with the password so that someone will not be able to just go to tools to unprotect the sheet.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() ActiveSheet.Unprotect "rainforest" Columns("O:O").Select Selection.AutoFilter Selection.AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=">0", Operator:=xlAnd ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, Collate:=True Selection.AutoFilter Field:=1 Selection.AutoFilter ActiveSheet.Protect DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True _ , AllowSorting:=True, AllowFiltering:=True End Sub
Sheet Names: 1) PasswordPage - - I would like this to be the page where a user needs to type in their password. If it is correct, their own worksheet would display. 2) Sally - - Hidden and protected, unless Sally types in correct password. Sally's password would be Summer 3) Vanessa - - Hidden and protected, unless Vanessa types in correct password. Vanessa's password would be Pluto 4) George - - Hidden and protected, unless George types in correct password. George's password would be Carpet 5) Alexander - - Hidden and protected, unless Alexander types in correct password. Alexander's password would be Lampost
I would like to ensure that noone else see's anyone else's sheet unless they know the appropriate password, as each individual sheet contains sensitive information.
I also plan to "protect" each sheet also, so that the Sally, Vanessa, George and Alexander cannot make changes to the formulas, etc. - - this I already know how to do.
My question relates more to, How do I hide/ password protect each sheet as outlined above? I assume I must use visual basic, however I am not very familar with it.
I have a workbook that contains a series of macros designed to compare various reports and spit out a report. I don't want my users to have to insert a password, but I want to keep my workbook protected. I've already protected the macros in the VBA Properties, so those are pretty safe, but the worksheets in the workbook are susceptible to changes that will hose my macros.
Setting the workbook to "Read Only" in Properties on our shared drive helps, but any user can change that at will. Within Excel, going to Options, Security, I can set a password so no-one can modify that workbook, but that pops up a password box when they open the workbook. I'd like to NOT have the password box pop up unless I need to make changes. Is there a way to do that? I've looked on the internet but can't find a solution on this one.
I have to use vbscript to add a password to an excel file i'm generating on the fly. I can't use the "Save As" option. Is there any other way I can do this? I need it to prompt the user before any data is displayed.
I am trying to add a command button that will set a custom view, password protect all worksheets, and finally password protect the entire workbook structure. The code I am using will correctly set the view and add the password to the worksheets, but it will not apply the password to the workbook structure. What do I need to add?
protect all the sheets. I would want the password box to popup whenever, the excel file is opened unless the proper password is entered the sheets file should remain deactivated and when the password is entered it should be displayed as "*".
On opening a workbook (XL2003) I want users to enter a password which will give them read Only permissions or access to the whole book. I do not want use the "save as" option it is not suitable for my needs & here is why. I have about 10 staff who need to fill in timesheets using XL SS on a public folder on the server. The staff need full access to file & management such as myself only need to view (read only) the timesheet without the ability to change data. Using the "save as" function the staff need to input 2 passwords.
The staff (in general) are not overly computer literate so I was hoping to be able to write code so that on Workbook_Open event only one password is entered and depending on the password gives the user full access or readonly access. This will also save management having to remember different passwords for read only access to different staff timesheet files & will give crude protection to the files.
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Dim Message, Title, Default, Password As String Message = "Enter your password" ' Set prompt. Title = "Password" ' Set title. Default = " " ' Set default. ' Display message, title, and default value. Password = InputBox(Message, Title, Default) If Password = "test" Then Workbook.ReadOnly = True Else Workbook.ReadOnly = False End If
Error occur on "Workbook.ReadOnly" lines . I also want to put an errorchecking code for invalid passwords. Again, I know I can use the "save as" option but that is not what I need.
1) I need to have code to protect the sheet that my user form is writing to. In other words, when the information from the user form is populated to the sheet, I want that sheet protected by a password that I set where I can unlock it, but no one else can.
2) I need to protect my VBA code with a password, I do not know how to do this, I have looked everywhere. I do however think this is something simple and I will kick myself once I find out where it is.
This question is related to my post here: http://www.excelforum.com/excel-programming/634024-cell-range-protect-unprotect-toggle.html
When you protect a worksheet via VBA then unprotect it the conventional way via: Tools>Protection>Unprotect Sheet. Why is it when you unprotect a worksheet in this way Excel does not ask you for a Password. You simpy only have to select Unprotect Sheet and the sheet is unprotected which for me kinda defeats the object.
I want to hide a sheet and I can do that. However, what I want to do it that when the user wants to view the sheet I just hid, he has to unhide and then enter a password. Right now tthere is no password.
I am trying to create a way to protect and unprotect all sheets and the worbook by means of a Userform pop up interface.
I have managed to create the Userform but what the code will look like and where to place the VBA code that will make it work, Also i would like to automatically save the sheet/s as i switch between them. so that any updates made to the sheet will be automatically saved when i move to the next sheet and also when i protect or close the workbook.
I am using Excel 2007 and I have a worksheet with multiple columns, some of these columns are protected and some are not.
I then lock the worksheet with a password so the user can't edit certain cells that are protected but can modify the unprotected cells, the problem is the user cannot use the filter or sort the workbook.
Is there a way to allow filtering or sorting but still lock down the worksheet.
I have a worksheet with employees names and their overtime hours worked that week. I would like to add some code to a button that will prompt for a password. If that password matches a predefiened password then lock a range of cells and place a time stamp next to the button and maybe change the button color of the button to Red. Now if the person with the password wants to change the locked cells, they can click the button again and enter the password and the button will turn green so they can make the changes. I would like the time stamp to be updated every time the cells are locked. Also wanted to have one button for every work week so about four buttons per worksheet. Here is an example of the worksheet. The range of cells I want to lock are the ones in bold.
I have been really trying to get this sorted myself and I can get it to work with one exception. I can't get the sheet to lock with a password. It locks, but if I try to unlock it again, it does so without prompting me to enter a password.
Essentially I am wanting to unprotect two sheets, unlock the cells that were previously locked (so users couldn't enter data in them when the sheet is protected), then reapply the same password to protect the sheet, but now they will be able to enter data in the unlocked range of cells).
The second macro is to reverse the changes made in the first and 're-lock' the unlocked cells) (and again apply the same password to the sheet).
I've stored all my on-line passwords (about 50 of them) in one sheet in an Excel workbook. I want to protect it so that if somebody somehow got access to it, they couldn't see the sheet, much less change anything.
I tried Tools/Protection/Protect Sheet and Tools/Protection/Protect Workbook, using a secret password. Then, nobody could change the data -- but they could still see it.
So then I hid the columns first, and then protected the sheet -- which did the trick. But that seems pretty cumbersome, because it involves two steps for me to open it up (unprotecting and then unhiding).
Is there a way to protect/hide in just one step so my sheet of passwords can't be seen by an intruder?
I currently have a macro which i run by selecting tools, macro, macro and then selecting the one i want and pressing run. if i press run I want a box to appear asking me to input a password and if password matches then run that specific macro, can this be done
