Need code or way of disabling the Right Click feature in Excel? I think you can change it in the computer settings but I only want to disable it for a particular workbook so I am hoping there is a VBA Code that will tell the user "Right Click Not Allowed, Please use Cut and Paste or Ctrl +V and Ctrl +C"
Question regarding the disabling of right mouse button click options and have used the code below to disable and reciprocal code to enable options. The code works well in Excel 2003 but have recently used the spreadsheet in excel 2000 and the code causes a runtime error 5 'Invalid procedure call or argument'. how to amend the code to have it also work with Excel 2000.
I have a workbook with multiple charts in and will be available to others to use but I want to disable the ability for them to be able to right click on a chart and make any alterations. I cannot lock out the page due to other things that I have going on. I also need to reverse this code when they close the workbook down so it does not affect any other workbooks
I need to display Excel Sheet in a Browser and I want to disable the Right Click and Menu of Excel(File, Edit).
So in the method Workbook_Open i coded following
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Application. CommandBars("Worksheet Menu Bar").Enabled = False Application.CommandBars(" Cell").Enabled = False Application.CommandBars("Sheet").Enabled = False Application.CommandBars("Ply").Enabled = False Application.CommandBars("Row").Enabled = False Application.CommandBars("Column").Enabled = False End Sub
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean) Application.CommandBars("Worksheet Menu Bar").Enabled = True Application.CommandBars("Cell").Enabled = True Application.CommandBars("Sheet").Enabled = True Application.CommandBars("Ply").Enabled = True Application.CommandBars("Row").Enabled = True Application.CommandBars("Column").Enabled = True End Sub
It works fine, but if I open Excel application before viewing this HTML page(which contains XLS) and then the option are also disabled in Stand alone Excel application. I want to disable option when for this Sheet which is opened.
way, using VBA code, to disable/enable individual shortcut menu items that are are made available with a right mouse button click. The following code disables the right mouse button completely but I would like to disable only a couple of options like the ' Cut' option.
The code to disable is below and to re-enable I just change False to True.
Dim cb As CommandBar i = 0 For Each cb In CommandBars If cb.Type = msoBarTypePopup Then cb.Enabled = False Next cb
I need a macro to disable all cut options (ctrl^x, right click cut, cut button in ribbon above), disable drag and drop, but still allow copying and pasting (the cutting affects cell references). I've already locked the spreadsheet, but users need to be able to input information and paste information in from other workbooks. This code must also only apply to THIS WORKBOOK and not affect others. Please help with a macro for this, as well as where to paste and how to properly configure macro security settings. I'm a big excel user, but this is my first time ever with VB and macros so talk to me like I'm dumb! I've pasted links to the two codes I tried, and I think one of them enabled a macro that affected all workbooks and now whatever code I put in won't save upon re-opening. It's there when I navigate to it, but it is ineffective like it's not even there. In macro security, I've enabled all macros and have the "trust VB programming" box checked. So maybe do some damage control before re-programming. I am getting a new computer in less than a month, but I want to be able to try out the code and have it work first, and I don't want to transfer the harmful code to the new computer.
P.S. This first code allows copying and cutting, but then just disables pasting, which is not what I want. The second one works great, but disables the right click menu altogether, which is no good either. And neither allow for pasting from the outside. And this is for moderate excel users, they won't try to erase the macro. I just need to keep them from making mistakes with cutting.
Simple question: How can I disable the Research Task Pane from launching when I Alt-click in Excel 2003?
Further Explanation: I have an Excel Add-in (commercial, not my own) that will retrieve data from an outside server when the user presses Alt-Double Click. Work's great. I've now upgraded to Excel 2003, so anytime I Alt-Double Click, Excel opens up the "Research Task Pane" (Pain?). To make matters worse, I'm behind a corporate firewall, so I get an authentication challange in order to connect to the internet when this opens. Don't want it, don't need it, want to get rid of it. Any solution is fine - Option setting, VBA, Registry setting
Below are the codes to hide the objects within Excel, Disable Keyboard shortcuts and disable right click, all are placed in the ThisWorkbook and i placed them in a 'Private Sub Workbook_Open()' function.
VB: 'Change 'False' to 'True' to unhide ActiveWindow.DisplayGridlines = False ActiveWindow.DisplayHeadings = False
There maybe simpler ways to do the above i just don't know them, it's just these have worked for me and i have had zero bugs come back from them!
I've just inherited a load of Excel files I need to continue using, but my predecessor has done something that disables the middle-click scroll ability.
I can still scroll up and down by turning the wheel, but I want to be able to click it and scroll in all directions at speed - I didn't realise how much I used this until I couldn't. Can't see anything in the VBA sheet properties, and they are all .xlsx files. Nothing leaps out of the settings either. If I create a new file or a file of mine within the same session, they work fine.
I am looking for a way to move workbooks to a new instance of excel by the click of a button. For example if I have multiple workbooks open under one instance of excel I do not want to have to minimize this and that... I have multiple monitors and I would like to hit a button on a selected workbook and have it auto open it to a new instance of excel. I image this may not be apart of excel and that it might require a macro to do so.
In the Dec 2005 Ozgrid newsletter there is some sample code to disable commandbar controls. The example code crashes when it trys to disable the copy button on the Clipboard menu (Excel 2000) and ONLY the clip board menu. All others are fine.
'Disable all Copy menus For Each oCtrl In Application.CommandBars.FindControls(ID:=19) oCtrl.Enabled = False Next oCtrl
I have a workbook in which i do not want the end user to be able to drag and drop cells. I noticed that when I set this in the Excel options to disallow this, it is local to the machine. Is there a way I can prevent others from dragging and dropping cells, through vba or other means, without changing the users local machine settings? I also need to prevent CUT and pasting of cells. I also need to leave the cells un-protected, becuase COPY and paste is ok, as it doesnt affect the formulas that refer to the cell. The worksheet and workbook are both protected.
I Have a spreadsheet in which data is spreading into column A-Z. I would like to disable copy, paste, ^V,^R,^C, ^D for certain columns (Q-U) of the workbook so that user is forced to enter data manually on these columns.
I would like to disable cut/copy/paste and maybe delete inside a worksheet. Reading earlier threads on this subject provided the code to put in the ThisWorkbook module, where it works great for all my worksheets. However, there is one worksheet where it is necessary to have copy/paste, either with control c or right click/copy. Here is part of that code provided by Tom Urtis:
Private Sub Workbook_Activate() Application.CutCopyMode = False Application.OnKey "^c", "" Application.CellDragAndDrop = False End Sub
What do I replace Application with to work on just the worksheet level?
I am on the row 100 in column G. I had a freeze the first row where i have hypertext and other function. I want add here (in the 1. row) something like hypertext, but i want to stay in the row where i was.
When i am on row 100 in column G and i want to create function which move my cursor to column W but in the same row (row 100 in this case).
Next time i will be in row 154 and i will want to move my cursor again in column W and use this same hypertext/function or what.
I have a worksheet containing lot of data in A,B,C, D,E,F. If it is possible that whenever an entry in a column is clicked or double clicked, it may be pasted to another sheet or in a blank column of the same sheet.
