Password Protect: Unlock The Worksheet, Autofilter It, Print It, Unfilter It, And Password Protect The Sheet Again?

Jan 12, 2007

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

Protect The Worksheet With Password

Jun 7, 2008

I had the thought that maybe it would be possible to have a worksheet that is not protected when saved but when it is opened there would be a sub-routine under Sub_Workbook Open that would step through each sheet and assign a random password. And when the workbook is saved it is saved without passwords again.

In this way there would be nothing for a password cracker to pick at. The only flaw I see would be that the password to open the VBA module would need to be static and this would open up the programming to change and remove. But wouldn't this be effective against most users who would only know about the utilities to open the passwords and not the programming behind excel.

Protect Worksheet But Allow Some Features

Sep 5, 2007

I am trying to use protection in order to prevent users from only inserting a row or a column, sort, and autofilter. I don't think Userform is a good choice for this situation. I've tried using the following

Sub MyMacro()
ActiveSheet. Unprotect
'YOUR CODE
ActiveSheet.Protect
End Sub

The problem I'm running into is, when I protect the sheet from the main screen (allowing for everything but those listed above), then run MyMacro, the things that were previously allowed under protection are no longer allowed. Indeed, upon re-protection it prevents the user from accessing anything other then the very basics (selecting cells). How can I make it so that the protection works the same as before the macro?

Protect / Unprotect Worksheet Before VBA Runs

Oct 26, 2011

I have a file that needs to be locked down so that the end user does not have the ability to enter data where they shouldn't. The end users are very Excel illiterate, and have proven that I need to have high security in place. Here is my current VBA code - the purpose of which is to hide/unhide rows depending on data entries. (Disclaimer: this code may not be pretty as I am a VBA rookie, and I've begged borrowed and stolen from about 10 other threads on this board to get where I am, and yes it works).

Code:

Option Explicit
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address(False, False) = "C7" Then Call Changeto1
If Not Intersect(Range("c9"), Target) Is Nothing Then
Rows("15:44").EntireRow.Hidden = True
Rows("15:" & Range("c9").Value + 14).EntireRow.Hidden = False
End If

[Code]...

The question is now....how can I unprotect the sheet so that this code works without allowing them to enter data where they shouldn't. I've been at this for days already.

Hide / Protect Worksheet Code

Jul 9, 2007

I need to be able to save a copy of my spreadsheet but protect the structure so that the hidden rows cannot be opened by the person that I e-mail it to. At the moment I am using the current

Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
Do
fName = Application.GetSaveAsFilename
Loop Until fName <> False
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=fName
Call ProtectRobin
End Sub
Private Sub ProtectRobin()
ActiveWorkbook.Protect ("Robin")
End Sub

The saving part of the macro is working perfectly, however I cannot get the protection to work. It must have a password - I do not want the receipient to be able to go 'Tools' > 'Unprotect Sheet'.

Excel 2007 :: How To Protect The Worksheet With Password

Dec 30, 2012

I know how to protect a worksheet with a password so that no one can amend the contents or view the formulas in the cells. And then we can un-protect the worksheet by clicking on the "review" tab in excel 2007 and so on. But recently I came across an excel sheet which was password protected and my query is that the "Review" tab was greyed out. What kind of protection was this that clicking on "review" tab option is also unavailable. And how does these kind of sheets get unlocked then.

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 Worksheet But Allow Selection Of Locked Cells

Mar 7, 2008

I am fairly new to Macros and such so please bare with me. I work with workbooks that have 30-50 worksheets in them. They are fairly complex and we send them out to our agents to use and need them protected so they cant change anything. I found how I can protect all the worksheets with one macro. There is one more part that I would like to add to this macro that I cant seem to find an answer for on these forums (Yes I have spent the better part of the day looking).

When you manually go to protect a page. It asks you to type in your password for the first time and below that there are a bunch of boxes that can be checked or unchecked. I need the first box "Select locked cells" to be unchecked. It is checked by default. Is there something I can add to my macro to uncheck this box?

This is the topic I used to create my Protect/Unprotect macro.

Excel 2010 :: Protect Worksheet With Multiple Passwords

I have an excel file with three worksheets in it. I can happily protect each sheet with a different password but what i want to be able to do is the following:

a. have a global administrator password for all the sheets - so i assume set the same password to protect the whole sheet
b. have individual passwords that only allow the user to insert rows and change data within restricted columns, i.e. can only edit columns A:Z and cannot manipulate any formulas within that range A:Z

I have excel 2010 if that makes any difference.

Macro To Unprotect Sheet Unlock Cells And Protect Worksheet With Same Password

Jan 23, 2012

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).

this is the code I have used.

Sub PART_YEAR()

Sheets("2012 Calculator 1 week").Select
ActiveSheet.Unprotect "taado"
Range("D20:D23").Select
Selection.Locked = False
Selection.FormulaHidden = False
Sheets("2012 Calculator 2 week").Select

[Code]...

I am assuming I have superfluous code in there, in addition to my mistake with the reapplication of the password.

Excel 2007 :: Protect Worksheet Disables Formatting And Insert Symbols?

I've got a workbook where I need to protect certain cells by locking them.

The trouble is when I do this I lose the ability to apply formatting and to insert symbols in other cells?

I've checked the obvious options for when you're locking cells but nothing seems to be stopping this there.

Is there a reason it disables these options, a work around or am I just being dumb?

I'm using Excel 2007 by the way.

Indirect Validation - Using Data In Second Worksheet

Jan 16, 2014

I have a competition entry form for an association I belong to that I'd like to add two drop down menus to so that entrants can select their club name and associated team names for that club.

In a worksheet behind the form I have a list of clubs in column "B" ("A" has the ID number in it as the table is from Access - don't ask!!) and the names of teams associated with that club going across the sheet beside the club name in individual Name Ranges. (Up to 30 Team names in Dynamic lists

=OFFSET(TeamsTest!$C$2,0,0,COUNTA(TeamsTest!$C$3+TeamsTest!$C$3:$AZ$3),1) )

On the form I have managed to make the first drop down so the club can select its name from a list by using Data Validation and referring to the Range Name (ClubLink - =OFFSET(TeamsTest!$B$2,0,0,COUNTA(TeamsTest!$B$2:$B$200),1)).

I have tried using an INDIRECT command to create a second drop down which will display only the team names associated with the Club selected in the first drop down, but can't get it to do anything - no drop down appears when you click on the drop down arrow at the side of the cell

The data Validation for the Team Name drop down is =INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE($C$12," ","")) where C12 is the Club Name cell.

Why I can't get the Team Name cell to show the names listed beside the Club selected in C12?
