I have a workbook with particular worksheets that should never be deleted. If they are deleted by the user the workbook will become unusable.
The users need the freedom to edit data within the sheets (so protecting them is not an option), however, I need to restrict this freedom so that they cannot under any circumstance delete the sheet. Is there such code that I could use in the worksheet code to stop this?
I want to run a macro that puts information from one sheet into another. The destination sheet is protected so I want to unprotect the sheet, do the copy and pasting then reprotect the sheet. The sheet has a password and I can't work out how to put that into the macro. It works fine without a password.
I am going to use Excel sheets as computer exam forms. What I need to know is: Is there a way of protecting parts of an excel worksheet from alteration? I want a sheet that will accept answers in specific areas only, and will not accept entries or alterations in other areas.
I have a sheet that has some cells already protected by a password. I want another person to be able to make changes to the unprotected cells and then be able to push a button (macro) that will then unlock the sheet activesheet.unprotect ("mypassword"), change all the cells to "locked" and then have the protect sheet window pop open so that they can type in their own password and save it. Is that possible?
I need is for the Roster sheet, which has the exact same column and row headings as the Leave sheet, to read the data from the Leave sheet and change dynamically if the Leave sheet is changed. If there is data in any cell then I need to protect just that cell in the Roster sheet so that the user creating the staff roster is unable to edit it out.
I have created a plain cut and paste macro on open from Leave to Roster but this doesn't give me the dynamic linking, and doesnt help solve the problem of needing to check each and every cell in Roster against a corresponding cell in Leave, but also if its blank in Leave to allow the user to update that cell in the Roster sheet.
A1 is number of days available this sheet goes to a routing recepient from me who fills A2 and B2. C2 and D2 are calculated. A2 has starting date B2 has ending date C2 is days between these two dates D2 is number of days left i.e. A1-C2
I want to lock and protect cells A2,B2,C2 and D2 so that these cannot be changed when I route it back to get next set of dates to be filled by the same person.
I have a macro that duplicates a excel file into how ever many files I need... so If I need 150 copies of the the file, it will make it 150 times.
However, each file the first tab called "Clients" has information that I want protected so users can't alter it. I can't protect it before I run the duplication because the data is added by a group of people and I need it unprotected until they add the information.
What I am looking for is a macro that I can click and run, allows me to select multiple files, then it will automatically Protect Sheet 1 "Clients" on all the files I select so I don't have to open all 150 files after data is entered and Protect sheet 1 manually.
I have a sheet that will not let me use macros. I can record them, but when I go to use them it says that the Macro security level is too high. I change it to Medium or Low but it doesn't make a difference.
The same spreadsheet works with Macros on another computer, but not my main one.
I have a spreadsheet that I regularly have to clear the data and start over on, so i recorded a macro for clearing this rather long sheet with only one cllick.
My problem is that i am not the only person who will use this sheet, if They click the control button by mistake they will clear their work and you cannot undo it. I was wondering if i could make it ask "are you sure" kind of like the save option when closing an unsaved document.
i am going to ask is for my curiosity only and to be sure that no one will break my password. If the VBA module is locked for viewing and password protected, it can't be cracked??I asking this, because i made an excel application with macros, and i don't want the user of it to crack my password. I have to mention that the password is 17 letter+spaces long. I repeat again....i asked this ONLY for my application safety.
If I have a cell which has been validated and has a drop down list of 4 names in it. I need it to prompt the user that when they choose there name and select, a window pop up or similar window appears asking for a 4 digit(or similar) code.
This is to stop others using peoples names against jobs they have completed so there is accountability if there are issues with information.
For each line I need it to re-prompt the user to enter the 4 digit pin so it cannot be tampered with.
Can anyone help with sending through a form and VB code possibly which I can copy into my spread sheet or a method I can use!
There are 2 cells on my spreadsheet where individuals must populate $ values. I want to put a security feature in the worksheet that would create a pop up warning to the user that one cell must be greater than the other.
B26 (Client Assets) must be greater than B41 (Dollar Impact), otherwise a dialog box pops up to indicate to the user that B41 cannot be greater than B26.
I was playing around with Macros on an excel file. I created a few and ran them. In the end, I didn't like the way they ran, so I deleted them all. However since I ran them in the excel file, every time I open the file it gives me a warning saying "Macros have been disabled."
Is there any way to remove the possible Macros ties/links from my file? I know I can disable the warning, but if I just want to remove the Macros ties to my file.
my workbook is finally working the way it should but every time i open it i get a security warning window with the options disable macros, enable macros and more info. how do i get this to not show up every time it's opened. this workbook will be used by someone other than me and i don't want them to need to do anything but open it and use it.
I would like the security warning not to pop up when the workbook is opened. I have been able to turn it off for myself but I had someone else test it and each time it's opened the security warning pops up with the disable, enable messages. Is there a way to turn this off permanently so not matter who opens it it won't pop up?
My dad wrote me a VB programme to save me time entering repetitive data into an excel template for my business. At first it didnt work untilll i reduced security to low. Sice then I fried my computer and have had to reformat it with a diffirent version of windows, vista service pack 3. Now even on low security it doesnt work.
The little button in the worksheet to make the macro happen isnt visible or doesnt exist.
