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

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?

Data Validation List From Another Worksheet

Jul 25, 2006

I'm using data validation to create a drop down list ina spreadsheet so that users can select from a pre-defined list. I want to be able to maintain this list in a separate worksheet, but when I try to create the list it tells me that "You may not use references to other worksheets or workbooks for Data Validation Criteria". I don't want to maintain the list in the same worksheet as there's a risk of deletion. Is there a way to create a dropdown list in a second worksheet?

Using A Cell On Another Worksheet As Input For Data Validation

Oct 13, 2008

Situation: I have an Excel file with multiple worksheets. Each of these worksheets contain the same rules for data validation in a certain column (G).

Problem: If I want to add an item to the data validation lists I have to edit every single worksheet. I've tried making a seperate worksheet containing data validation items and using that as the source for the data validation rule, but Excel doesn't allow me to switch worksheets while defining the source.

In other words, I want to manage my data validation rules of multiple columns in multiple worksheets in one central location.

Reference Data Validation List On Another Worksheet

Apr 22, 2008

I have a spreadsheet in Excel 2003 with many sheets all of which need to have for some columns the data entry restricted to a specific list.

To do this we have created lists defined and held in a separate sheet and then attempted to reference these from all the other sheets using Data -> Validation and then entering the relevant list in the Validation criteria.

The 1st sheet we set the Data Validation up in all is fine. The 2nd sheet however I get an error pop-up stating 'You may not use references to other worksheets or workbooks for Data Validation criteria'.

Data Validation Using List In Another Worksheet - Works For All But One Sheet!

Dec 30, 2008

I am running into an odd issue and hope someone might be able to shed some light.
I have created several lists on one sheet in a workbook and have assigned named ranges to each individual list. So far, so good.

On various other worksheets, I have created Data Validation rules to allow users to select the relevant data from drop-down lists. (using formulas such as =List1, =List2, etc. in the Source box to capture the named ranges I had created).

Everything works perfectly...EXCEPT for one worksheet, which continues to give me the error message, "You may not use references to other worksheets or workbooks for Data Validation criteria." Can anyone explain why this error would only occur on one worksheet and work fine for all the other sheets? I'm perplexed!

Data Validation List To Select Worksheet In Macro

Apr 8, 2007

I have a Data Validation list in cell A1 of a worksheet called LIST. I would like to modify the macro that I have recorded, the macro uses data from various worksheets. I would like to sort out some code so that at certain points in the macro it will select the worksheet that is shown in cell A1 of the LIST sheet and then carry out the code already recorded. THis will allow me to quickly change a sheet name that is refererred to in the macro numerous times without actually manually editing the sheet name in the macro code.

Data Validation Doesn't Work When Worksheet Populated From Userform?

Feb 21, 2014

I have this formula =COUNTA($A:$A)<=4 that limits amount of cells that can be populated in column A, I use data validation with "Allow costume" option and using that formula. It works fine from worksheet it displays the message when the limit is reached but it doesn't work when data is inputed/populated from userfrom, it allows userform to put more entries than set limit 4 in this case.

2003 Data Validation Doesn't Trigger Worksheet Change

Dec 31, 2008

I have a bit of code that calls a formatting sub depending on which cell is modified. It is triggered by the Worksheet_Change event, determines which cell is modified, and either calls the formatting sub or doesn't based on the location of the modified cell.

Some of the columns in the sheet have data validation with drop downs. If I select a value from the drop down, it doesn't trigger the Worksheet_Change. If I type a value into the same cell, it does.

This was apparently an issue in Excel '97, but supposedly fixed in '03?

Nested Data Validation: Figure A To Enforce Dual Data Validation On A Single Cell?

Aug 19, 2009

I'm trying to figure a to enforce dual data validation on a single cell. That is, I need to restrict the user to entering only a decimal value, only if a particular other cell (say A2) is blank. To put it another way, if A2 is blank, the user can enter a decimal value, but if A2 is not blank, the user cannot enter anything. I can use Data Validation to enforce either the decimal restriction or the ISBLANK, but I'm not sure how to make them work together.

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.

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.

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.
