Excel 2003 :: Unprotected Cell Won't Allow Input On Protected Sheet

May 19, 2010

Using excel 2003, Workbook has several sheets, all sheets are protected workbook is not. I have my cells containing formulas locked, I have unlocked the other cells that require input of various data. When the user goes to type in a "unlocked" cell, (to over write the now obsolete data) it will not allow the user to delete the data, the curser remains a cross and the formula bar or the cell itself will now allow any changes.

I have double checked that the cells are unlocked. I can enter data after the last entry in the unlocked row and or column, but I want to be able to "cut or delete the data that is no longer need and begin entering data from the beginning cell of choice. I want to copy this "old" data to an archive sheet, but it will now allow me to select it.

Example: I have 6 columns starting, (a to f) the formulas are in columns e and f and start at row 4 These columns are locked and hidden. Columns a,b,c and d are unlocked for user input. All data is started from A5 which I want it to start from each time the old data is deleted and new data entered. If I place my curser on any of the cells in the e and f rows, the cursor remains a cross which is what I expect it to do, but columns a to d are doing the same thing, they are acting as if they are locked OR atleast those cells in the a to d areas which have existing data, as I can enter below.

Automatically Update A Protected Cell Based On Contents Of An Unprotected Cell

Apr 30, 2009

I am trying to find some VBA that will allow protected cells to be updated when a user enters or selects data in other cells.

For example:

Cell 'A1' starts out blank.
Cell 'B1' has a drop down to select specific items.
Cell 'C1' is the date of the order and is a locked cell.
Cell 'D1' is the date of completion and is a locked cell.
The worksheet is protected to prevent direct changes to cells C1 and D1.

If a user enters any information in A1, then C1 displays the current date.
If a user selects 'Complete' from the drop-down list in B1, then D1 displays the current date. Both of these actions are independant of one another. This format is the same for every cell in the 4 columns indicated above. I thought I was able to do this in another spreadsheet I created a year or so ago but I have not been able to figure out what I did and I do not have the spreadsheet to look at.

Macro To See If File Exists Or Password Protected

Nov 29, 2009

I have written a macro to select a range of cells one by one and open the excel files mentioned in them and execute a task. It works fine. But I want the system to see if the file exists in its folder or if the file is password protected (for opening). Either of the case the file should be skipped without a warning message and any attempt to open. I need a macro for that. Following is the way the cell contents are

I:ORDERSS-S 10ALIYAMARKET ORDERSADDADD-LADIES-LEGGINGS-13246.xls
I:ORDERSS-S 10ALIYAMARKET ORDERSADDADD-LADIES-PANTS-13247.xls
I:ORDERSS-S 10ALIYAMARKET ORDERSADDADD-LADIES-SHORTS-13244.xls
I:ORDERSS-S 10MICHELLEGAMESWORLDWIDE COMPANYWORLDWIDE COMPANY - GAMES - 10014.xls

And following is the VBA code I wrote. It it almost stops when reaching a non-existing file name

I am using the following code to add in an entry to the sheet named "Upload Log". I am currently using the "Now" function to input date and time. problem is everytime the sheet changes the formula changes and alters the times. I am trying to create a log of each time this code runs. so I have a record of it. This code seems to work but rather than placing the formula in the cell as I have written here, I just want the code to place the values that formula would place, but not the actual formula.

DAO Query On Password Protected File: Could Not Decrypt File

Macro To Remove Seconds From Timestamp

Apr 28, 2008

I have a column of cells in my worksheet that look like this:

1/1/2007 10:53:31 AM
1/1/2008 8:35:46 AM
1/1/2008 8:35:54 AM
1/10/2008 1:39:26 PM

As you can see this is a timestamp in the format: m/d/yyy hh:mm:ss a/pm

The problem is that Iím trying to import this data into another program that accepts the same format without the SECONDS field: m/d/yyy hh:mm a/pm

Since I have thousands of rows of data it just isnít feasible to go through and manually remove the seconds data from each cell.

Is there a macro or some other shortcut that can do this?

The ultimate goal would be to have the data above end up looking like this:
1/1/2007 10:53 AM
1/1/2008 8:35 AM
1/1/2008 8:35 AM
1/10/2008 1:39 PM

Import Macro With No Extensions By Timestamp

Mar 25, 2007

I want to automate the download process of these scan files we use. I can figure out how to do that if not for the two wildcards I'm about to throw out.

What I can't seem to figure out is how to use VBA to determine which files to import. I was thinking about possibly having VBA look for the time stamps on these files in the scan file directory, and then only import those ones which created in less than an hour from current time.

I have only a few days of VBA experience, so I don't have a clue where to start. If anyone could provide assistance/point me in the right direction.

By the way, the files that I am importing will be a comma delimited file. However, for some reason, the files are all extensionless (without .xxx)

Inserting Timestamp On Data Sheet When Raw Data File Imported?

Feb 14, 2014

I have a workbook that requires refreshed source data each day. The workbook has all of the macros and formulas that analyze the data. I have the following code to import the worksheet with the raw data (onto a fresh worksheet in the calculation workbook), but I would like to create code that also adds the date and time to the imported data worksheet -- not the date/time the raw data was created; instead, when it was imported into my calculation workbook.

Below is my code for importing the raw data worksheet:

Protected Sheet - Insert Picture File

Feb 10, 2007

Workbook Password Protect 2 Levels. I have managed to write simple but effective code that allows only one password to be enetered to open a SS & offers 3 levels of protection, limited permission to enter data, read-only & data completely hidden. This is excellent for my needs however I want the user who has limited rw to be able to insert a pic file which is their signature but because the sheet has protected cells it won't allow user to insert picture jpg file.

I have just thought of a creative solution tho. What if the picture file is already saved in the workbook and by using code to ask to insert pic file it copies from one location in SS to the appropriate cell in the worksheets?

The scenario is that I have fortnightly timesheets in 12 calendar months in 12 separate sheets. When staff member fills in timesheet I want them to insert signature for that f/night indicating thatthey have filled it in & it is correct but because of protection it won't allow me to.

VBA Macro Not Working When Workbook Is Protected

Apr 23, 2008

I wish I could have been more specific with my Title. This is what I am encountering. I used the McGimpsey code for generating a unique sequential number every time a workbook opens. I tailored the code to fit my needs and stuck it into my invoice sheet. For the longest time I was unable to make it work until I moved the code from a template to a standard workbook. Then I was able to make it work as long as the sheet was unprotected. I realized that to get the code to work I had to then unprotect the cells that the code was writing to. Now that I've done that I am getting errors in the code that weren't there before, rendering the macro useless. The code I am using is:

Macro Not Working When Sheet Protected?

Sep 19, 2013

I have certain cells which I want the formulas hidden to the end user and protected so they can't update them.

I've locked and hidden these cells and protected the sheet however my Macro's fail to work thereafter.

Protect the sheet for the user interface only. This has to be done in VBA:

- Activate the sheet.

- Activate the Visual Basic Editor (Alt+F11).

- Activate the Immediate window (Ctrl+G).

- Type

ActiveSheet.Unprotect

- Press Enter.
- Type

ActiveSheet.Protect UserInterfaceOnly:=True

- Press Enter.

The sheet is now protected for the end user, but VBA code can freely manipulate it.This works well however when I go to another page and do the same it stops working on the original sheet.I would like to know if there is an easy way to:

protect/unprotect all sheets in one go and have the macros still work?

When I protect pages individually I want the following to be allowed:

Select unlocked/locked cells
Format
Sort
Use autofilter
use pivottable

I will first save which cells are un/locked & hidden.
