Protecting From Modification

May 18, 2009

I would like to protect the worksheet from modification by other users except column A ( suppose A1: A15).

I have been doing this by removing Locked on format cell and then Protect Sheet on Review tab.

Is it the right way or there are other more reliable way?

Right Click Menu Modification

Mar 21, 2007

I have been modifying the options available on my right click menu, getting rid of about half of what was there and adding items I use quite often like Paste Values, Paste Formats, Paste Formulas, Sort..., AutoSum, and Format as Percent, as well as adding group dividers. I have it just the way I want it, but I have one issue. If the clipboard is empty, all of the paste buttons are disabled on the Standard toolbar and in the Edit menu as are the Paste and Paste Special... items on the right click menu, but the new paste items I added to my right click menu are still enabled. If I click on one, I get a "PasteSpecial method of Range class failed" error because I have no range selected. I got around this by adding On Error Resume Next to the macros of my added paste functions - not elegant, but functional. Is there a way to have those items appear grayed out and disabled on my right click menu when the clipboard is empty as opposed to my current workaround?

How To Protect The Worsksheet Name From Modification

Oct 8, 2008

I have an Excel template with 10 Worksheet(tabs). 8 of the sheets have predefined charts built based on the data in first 2 sheets. Through a web application user downloads data on the first 2 sheets. A macro is then executed (at the end of the download) to Update (through Macro) the charts in the remaining sheets and the sheets are password protected. The idea here is that user can generate predefined charts from the downloaded data but cannot modify any information. In addition to that user need an ability to add additional sheets to generate custom reports/charts.

So my requirement is to protect the 10 predefined sheets from modification including the modification of sheet name/deletion of sheet but allow user to add additional sheets. Protecting the workbook does not allow user to add additional sheets. Protecting individual sheets doesn't prevent user from renaming the sheet names.

Slight Modification To Formatting Subroutine

Nov 7, 2013

I have a small sub routine below I would like to make a slight modification to. The routine currently references formatting relative to the Offset statement in bold below. Instead, I would like the formatting to come from a cell address listed in a cell just to the left of the cursor when the statement is encountered.

Modification Of Code/module At Runtime

Mar 7, 2007

way to save user-settings at runtime, preferably in the same or another module. For example: how can I save a bundle of variables such that the next time excel is started and the workbook is opened, the user can continue to work with his personal settings?

Using the macro, I am writing on atm, a user will be able to adjust the macro according to his input-samples. Here the columns and rows of an input can be varied to fit the macros requirements. It would be great if those settings could be stored, irrespectively of where the file currently resides. That is, best it would be, if the source-code itself could be changed ... maybe by adding another module?

Insert Copied Cells Modification (Macro)

Jan 26, 2014

I don't know if a macro is necessary, but the built in Insert -> Insert copied cells -> Shift cells down function can't accomplish what I require.

I've pasted in two example tables for what I'd like to do. For the first table, the data in column C is a name and the cells from columns D-Z, rows 7-10 is what I want to copy and paste from row 12, column D; row 13, column D; etc, etc. However, I want the full rows below the name in column C to move down when I paste from column D. Using the Insert function on the Insert blade only gives me the data in columns D-Z moving down.

The second pasted table gives an example of how I want it to look.

VLOOKUP Modification: Modify The Lookup Array Key

May 12, 2006

it's possible to set a "key" for a vlookup so that one of the parameters of that key can be any value? For example if the data set key used in the lookup contains a concatenation of 4 parameters (a_b_c_d), is there anyway to modify the lookup array key so that the "c" parameter can be anything, ie. something like a_b_*_d ?

Data Validation Autocomplete Via Combobox Modification

Jun 7, 2007

I'm using a script that when you double click on a cell containing Data Validation > List it changes to a combo box that has an autocomplete/increased columns view...It's working great, however there are two small modifications I would love to do and am not having much success with. Currently, you double click the cell w/the Data Validation > List in it, it then changes to a combo box and you can auto complete using the keyboard or select the dropdown and choose from an increased list. However, I would like to be able to simply single click on the cell, have it change to the combo box and auto expand the list if possible.

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, _
Cancel As Boolean)
Dim str As String
Dim cboTemp As OLEObject
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim wsList As Worksheet
Set ws = ActiveSheet
Set wsList = Sheets("Rep Assist Report")
Cancel = True
Set cboTemp = ws.OLEObjects("RepName1")
On Error Resume Next
With cboTemp
.ListFillRange = ""
.LinkedCell = ""
.Visible = False
End With
On Error Goto errHandler
If Target.Validation.Type = 3 Then.....................

Excel 2007 :: How To Add Date Of Last Modification Of File To Printed Pages

Mar 27, 2012

We are using Excel 2007.

I wanted to add the date of the last modification of the file to the printed pages, so I googled how to do it and found a useful answer on this from from 10 years ago. It said to press ALT+F11, then on the left side go under VBAProject, there go to ThisWorkbook and there paste the next code:


Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
For Each wk In Worksheets
With ActiveSheet.PageSetup
.LeftHeader = "Last Modified on " & ActiveWorkbook.BuiltinDocumentProperties.Item("Last Save Time")
.CenterHeader = ""


Then I saved it and closed. Like I said, it worked perfectly.

The problem is that when I open the file after closing it, it does not appear, and I have to paste the code again every time I open it. Not only is this not comfortable, it also counts as a modification, so even if I haven't changed the work sheets themselves, just wanted to open and print it, it shows today's date.

My question is, who to I save it permanently so it will remain always after the first time I created it?

While we're at it, if there's a way for that code to appear on every NEW Excel file I create automatically

Protecting Worksheets

Nov 27, 2006

I have a bunch of worksheets in my workbook say around 50

Each worksheet has the same template layout!

I am trying to figure out a macro that will select all worksheets from 'KLKN':'KFSN' and protect the cells L45:L52 accross to AL45:AL52

Unfortunately I cannot select all worksheets and protect them, instead I would have to manually do this, or create a macros that will do it for me...

Protecting All Sheets

Jul 1, 2007

I am trying to protect all sheets on a Workbook Close event.

I don't want the user to even be able to Select the Loked cells so I set it up that way through formating of cells.

This is what I have tried:

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Dim sh As Worksheet
For Each sh In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
sh.Protect Password:="P@ssword", DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True
ActiveSheet.EnableSelection = xlUnlockedCells
' sh.Protect Password:="P@ssword"
Next sh
End Sub
I even tried the commented out line in that postion instead of where it is now.

It does protect but still allows selection of locked cells.

Protecting The Document

Jan 15, 2008

Version used: Excel 2003

I have a spreadsheet that everyone in my department uses. My boss has asked me to protect certain columns so that only I can edit them but leave others so that the rest of the depratment can use those.

I have tried locking the ones I am to use and unlocking the ones the others can use then protecting the document. This works well enough as far as it goes, however, it is combersome having to unprotect then reprotect it every time I need to work on it. Also, that method makes the drop down lists that we are using for easy sorting no longer function.

Protecting A Workbook

Feb 6, 2008

I have a very large workbook - there are only five sheets of this workbook that should be viewed by anyone. What I would like to do and just can't seem to find a solution is...

I would like to set the workbook so that when opening I use a password which will give me full access to anything in the workbook - upon read only, a user would be able to open the entire workbook without a password - but only view it's contents - not be able to do any adjustments.

I have locked cells which I do not want anyone to adjust the formulas to, then protected the sheet - this works, however, because there are so many sheets, it becomes very tedious to unlock and lock sheets to work in them.

Protection Not Quite Protecting

Jul 24, 2008

I have a workbook and i have spent time protecting all the formula cells and allowing user to only be able to select unlocked cells (so they can quickly tab to where they need to input info).

I have lots of codes running and always use Activesheet=unprotect If i am modifying protected cells and then at the end of the code i put back the activesheet=protect.


When i transfer this book to another machine or to someone else to run it on their machine - ALL of my protection GOES OUT THE WINDOW

Also - is there a way to hide or protect all my code so that users cannot modify it?

If so - how do i get it back to modify state when i want to edit it?
