Searching A Protected Sheet

Feb 11, 2010

I have a workbook whose worksheets use protection (don't want my calculations stomped on).

When the Protection is on, the search function does not work. You call it up, write what you are looking for, it accepts it, and then when you tell it to search it ignores you.

When you turn the protection off, the search function works just fine.

HOWEVER....Other workbooks I have with protection on its sheets do not share this problem, just this one workbook. And the problem is on all sheets in this workbook. The problem is not on any of the sheets in the other workbooks. I can't see anything different between them, but then I may not know what to look at.

Excel 2010 :: Macro Runs On Protected Sheet But Changes Protect Sheet Options?

Feb 24, 2011

I am using Excel 2010 and I have a password protected workbook with password protected sheets that uses several macros. Most of them, in order to run, have to un-protect the sheet and then re-protect it again. This has been accomplished easily enough by adding ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:= "mypassword" and ActiveSheet.Protect Password:= "mypassword" to the appropriate places in the script. All of my macros, which do various things like sorting and moving data, deleting blank rows, displaying dialog boxes containing warning messages etc. run fine.

My problem is this: when I password protect the sheets manually, I have checked the following options in the "Protect Sheet" dialog box. Under "Allow users of this worksheet to" I have checked 1)Select unlocked cells and 2)Format cells. After entering my password and closing the dialog box my sheet is protected, but I can edit cells in the manner my allowances permit. However, once I run any of the macros that un-protect and re-protect the sheet, I remain able to select and edit unlocked cells (practically, for my purposes, this means that I can input data which will appear in the default font size and color of the sheet) but I cannot format cells (which, practically, for my purposes would allow me to occasionally change the font color and size of the data). Naturally, after running a macro, the other cell-formatting options are unavailable to me as well. Is there any way to get my manual selections to remain in place after running a macro that functions as mine do? Or is there any way to make my manual selections the default settings for a protected sheet?

Password Protected Sheet :: How To Unprotect A Sheet?

Jan 18, 2008

Does anyone know if there is a way to unprotect a sheet. The person who created this spreadsheet no longer works for our company and although we can see the spreadsheet, the formulas are hidden so we can't figure out where the data is being pulled in from. Any ideas?

Searching Through A List Of Values Across A Whole Sheet

Sep 23, 2009

I have a list of values in column A of sheet 2. What I would like Excel to do is search for each of these values on the whole of Sheet 1. Sheet 1 has around 20 columns of information and a dynamic number of rows.

In column B of Sheet 2, Iíd like TRUE or FALSE displayed depending if the value is found on Sheet 1. For example

AB
1 DOGTRUE
2 CAT TRUE
3 MOUSE FALSE
4 HORSE TRUE

If this can only be achieved via macro, please post the code rather than a file as I canít download the file here.

Searching Multiple Columns On Same Sheet

Mar 26, 2009

Fall - Columns A-G
Spring - Columns I-O
Summer - Columns Q-W
Unduplicated - Columns Y-AD

I am needing to take each student in the Unduplicated section and see which terms they attended. If they attended a specific term, I need to grab a piece of data from that term and put it in over in the undulicated area.

The only way I could think to do this is with three separate searches. This is probably grossly inefficient and so far it has not worked at all. I have posted below the code I am currently using. Again this code is not workin at all.

Searching Concatenated Cells On A Sheet

Oct 27, 2012

Concatenated cells. My issue is how do i search through a sheet with cell values that have been concatenated?

Lets take an example:

I would like to search for a string call sales in sheet1 which would display all the employees and schedules for that department (do note that employees can be part of not just one department). but my cell formatting is as follows:

Sheet 2, Column 1
Employee name

E.g. Row 2 Employee1

Sheet 2, Column 2
Department (cells concatenated)

E.g. Row 2 Sales, Marketing (Concatenated Cell)

Sheet 2, Column 3
Work schedule

E.g. Row 2 8 AM to 5 PM

So when you search for sales, it will display employee1 and work schedule.

Searching For String In Column And Pasting Into New Sheet?

Jul 16, 2014

I need to figure out a way to search for a string in column D and then paste the entire row that string is in to a new sheet. I'd like for this to continue until I paste all of the rows of that string into the next sheet. This is what I got so far, and when I run it, it says an error occurs and then it says either press enter or paste. After I hit enter, it pastes the first row to the next sheet, but that's it. Also should I be doing this with a button?

Code:
Sub SearchForString()
Dim LSearchRow As Integer
Dim LCopyToRow As Integer

[Code]....

VBA - Searching For Elements Of Array In Active Sheet

Aug 5, 2013

I'm trying to write a macro which will find members of an array on a sheet, highlight the column and then change the format of the column, what I have at the moment is:

Dim datearray(1 To 3) As String

datearray(1) = "Date1"
datearray(2) = "Date2"
datearray(3) = "Date3"

For x = LBound(datearray) To UBound(datearray)
Cells.Find(What:=x).Activate
ActiveCell.EntireColumn.Select
Selection.NumberFormat = "m/d/yyyy"
Next x

End Sub

The problem is, when I "F8" my way through the code, it doesn't seem to be finding the members of the array in the sheet.

Protected Sheet & Allow Use Of Autofilter

Dec 20, 2007

I've locked certain columns on my worksheet so that users cannot overtype target dates etc. I've password protected the worksheet.

The password protection means that for some reason the users can't use the autofilters that are on the header row.

Can someone help me solve this problem; I still need the locked cells and password protection on the sheet but the success of the sheet depends on users being able to filter for specific rows using the autofilter....

Automatically Paste Row On Protected Sheet?

Jul 30, 2008

I want to allow user copy(Ctrl + C) and paste(Ctrl + V) a row. because some columns are locked and the sheet is protected. so, when user doing so, a warning dialog is show and can't do the paste.

so, I want to make it available in code. what I want to do is add some codes in this function:

VB:
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Application.CutCopyMode = True Then 'there are someing in clipboard
Sheet1.Unprotect 'unprotect sheet, so can paste
End If

and in Worksheet_Change function, I protect the sheet again.

But I find that when I do Sheet1.Unprotect , the clipboard is empty! I just want to allow user can copy and paste a row, the locked cell's value can be ignored.

Insert Row On A Table In Protected Sheet

Dec 11, 2013

I am working on an excel table in my worksheet contains formulas and locked cells. lets say table range is from column "a" to "f" and there is formula on cell in columns "c" and "f". I just locked cells in column "c" and "f" to prevent people changing the formula accidentally. but when the sheet is protected i am not able to insert or delete rows as the rows has locked cells in columns "c" and "f".

I tried the below macro to unlock the sheet, insert row and lock the sheet again:

[Code] .....

So by running the macro it asks the password and do the job but the issue is it needs password and i do not want people to know my password. I don't want them able to unlock the workbook and make any undesired changes. I want them to be allowed insert or delete rows and input data in unlocked cell. I want the sheet to be locked all the time and only when people want to insert or delete a row it be unlocked and be locked again after inserting or deleting whit no need to insert password in this case only.
