Excel 2007 - need to adjust protected view settings but the protected view tab is missing from my Trust Centre settings - have the following tabs - trusted publisher / location, add-ins, activeX, macro, message bar, external content and privacy options. Document is a revenue authority download and without being able to adjust the protected view settings, can't input data.
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?
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).
- Press Enter. - Type
- 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.
I have a sheet for data entry. On that sheet a button to run macro to scale the graphs on sheet 2. If I protect sheet 2 though because I am thinking of letting others use this program. It gives me an error 400.
I am creating a series of macros for a workbook, and at the beginning of each macro I unprotect all sheets and at the end of each macro I protect the sheets once more. The issue I am having is that even with these macros in place, I continue to receive an Excel alert message saying:
"The cell or chart that you are trying to change is protected and therefore read-only. To modify a protected cell or chart, first remove protection using the Unprotect Sheet command (Review tab, Changes group). You may be prompted for a password."
The macro will then run. Everything works as it should, but I do not want this error message to pop up. I have tried inserting
I am getting an error when I protect a worksheet and save it. Upon re-opening the worksheet, I try to use the cells that are being formatted by a macro, but I get the following error...
Run-time error '1004':
Unable to set the NumberFormat property of the Range Class.
If I open the worksheet and it is already protected from when I last closed it, then I get the error. If I unprotect the sheet, then close it and reopen it, then I don't get the error. Does anyone know what I might be missing or doing wrong.
I have used a small macro to format the sheet to hide cells with no entries and then print. The problem is that when the sheet is protected, then macro wont work. The sheet needs to be protected by the end user. I am only really learning excel, I could add to the following so the sheet can remain protected?
I have the following macro so that we can use the outline feature without having to unprotect a sheet.
Private Sub Workbook_Open() With Worksheets("Schedule") .Protect Password:="APQP", Userinterfaceonly:=True[code]....
However once the macro is run, filtering will not work without unprotecting the sheet first. If you choose not to run the macro, filtering will work without unprotecting the sheet however the outline feature will not. what I need to add and where to make both the outline and filter features to work without having to unptotect the sheet?
I've got a work book with numourous password protected sheets which i quite often have to update (as i use around 10 of these with at least 10 sheets in each its time consuming). I've had several goes at creating 2 macros to unlock and then lock the sheets (with my password). I've managed to create on that unlocks the sheets using the password but i can't get a macro to lock the sheets up again using the password.
I have a Workbook that I use to log invoices and credit notes and it is password protected so that the cells that contain formulas are locked and therefore not selectable.
What I wanted to know is. Is it possible to lock other cells depending on what values are in certain cells?
Let me explain. I have Columns G & H which contain the heading 'Credit Note Number' & 'Credit Note Amount'. Now in columns I & J I have the heading 'Invoice Number' & 'Invoice Amount' respectively.
What I have done is to make a condional formatting so that If I put a value in cells in column G it will change the colour of the adjacent cells in columns I & J, likewise If I fill in cells in column I the conditional formatting will change the colour of adjacent cells in coulumn G & H. This helps me to see whether a row contains a credit note or an invoice.
What I would ideally like is for a Macro that would automatically locks cells G & H in a particular row that I am currently working on if I enter data into the cell in column I. Likewise if I am entering data in column G in the row I am currently working on for a credit note, then lock columns I & J in the row I am currently in.
Any Ideas how this can be done? Also can locking and unlocking of cells be done in VBA while the sheet is protected or would the macro need to temporarily unprotect sheet, lock the cells then protect sheet again?
PS: I have uploaded a Jpeg of what my conditional formatting does to try and illustrate what it is I need.
I have a protected worksheet containing an SQL query. I have two cells on the worksheet unlocked so that users can enter fresh parameters to feed the query. Because I have to use MS Query to interrogate our SQL server (current IT decree), the query won't support parameters directly when the query cannot be represented graphically - so I have to manually edit the sql command text and then refresh the query - or at least that was why I wrote the code below
The problem: My macro won't unprotect the sheet before it calls the SQL.it therefore won't update the sheet to detail the DSN, command text and number of parameters (latter should be 0) - info just used to verify queryit won't run the query / return the data as the sheet is still protected Comment: I have had to remove sheet protection in order to allow the sql to execute and return data. If protection is removed, the query does execute and return data ( changes in the "parameter" cell contents do cause the query to be correctly modified) I could comment out the debug info but the query still doesn't return data if the sheet is protected.
Activesheet And worksheets(ndx) where ndx has been defined As ActiveSheet.Name I apologise If my post Is difficult To follow - especially the code.
Dim ws As Worksheet For Each ws In Worksheets ws.Protect Password:="test", UserInterFaceOnly:=True Next ws
As I understand it this should allow macros to work. What is happening is that on firing the first macro (which involves a sheet change), a small message box comes up asking for a password. However, if you hit 'cancel' in this box it carries out the macro anyway. What is going on here?
I have used for some time the technique of having the worksheets protected and the (through buttons) call macros that Applicatition.Unprotect the sheet do something not allowed while sheet protected and then Application.Protect. They work. Then I read about UserInterfaceOnly and I wanted to use it. I tried unsuccessfully a sort of testing
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Dim wSheet As Worksheet For Each wSheet In Worksheets wSheet.Protect "aPass", UserInterfaceOnly:=True Next wSheet End Sub
Code for three buttons on the same sheet. Very simple code to try whether previous code behaves as expected.
Sub FillValueActive() Dim activeNum As Integer activeNum = ActiveCell.Row Range("A1").Offset(activeNum - 1, 0).Value = "This text shows filled" End Sub .........................................
I have a workbook that i am trying to make a shared workbook.
Shared workbooks have all kinds of functionality limitations. The one specifically giving me problems is the ability to protect workbooks.
Once a workbook is shared it's protection cannot be changed.
I protect a workbook prior to sharing and set the UserInterfaceOnly property = true (this allows my code to do whatever it wants but still maintains protection in the user interface).
Once i share and excel makes me save, everything works super and all the code in my auto_open macro works perfectly. But as soon as i close and open the file it seems that the UserInterfaceOnly property i set to true turns off and my code stops working.
Because it's a shared workbook i cannot turn it back on in the auto_open because that functionality is disabled.
I have a large file of data and the data looks like this repetitively, however, there are also useless data. But I figure out that the repeat data looks the same compare to the useless data. I need to extract the data that I only need. Is there a way to set a macro to search for a String from the beginning of the excel file, when the string is found, it will keep the 2 rows above and 56 row below it, then loop.
Here is an example of it:
A1 USELESS DATA A2 USELESS DATA A3 USELESS DATA A4 USELESS DATA A5 GOOD DATA
The macro will start from A1 then go down till find STRING, then will keep 2 row above it which is A5+56 row below it which is A63.
Then continue at A64, then find STRING at A66 and do the same which is copy A64 (2 row above)+till A122 (which is 56 row below), then continue.
Since A123 to A155 does have any STRING, they will all be deleted..
Is there anyway to change the security settings in Excel 2007 using VB macros? I have tried to record the macro as I change the settings but nothings is recorded. Basically I have two workbooks, and I want to run one of the macros within workbook 1 from workbook 2. This is straight forward, however why I try to run it, excel says that the macros are disabled in the other workbook, but I know they are not, they are all enabled (bottom option)
I was hoping to find some way of fooling Excel into thinking the macros were enabled by changing the security settings (actually keeping them the same, but making excel think that i've changed them) before I try to the macro from the other sheet. I don't know if i've explained myself very well here, I hope I have, if not let me know and i'll try to go into more detail.
I have a range of cells ( C2, C5, C8:N1007, P8:P1007 ....) on a worksheet that I want to be able to clear the contents of through a macro - worksheet is entitled Database
I have 3 additional worksheets all of which have summary information on and some of the formulas are huge.
I've inserted a module and produced this code;
Sub ClearContents() Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual Range("C2, C5, C8:N1007, P8:P1007, ....").ClearContents Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic End Sub
Because of all the 3 summary page formulas the code is taking a few seconds to run.
I'm new to VBA and just wondered whether I could switch the calculation setting for the entire workbook onto manual at the beginning of the code and then switch it back to automatic at the end of the code? Think this might speed things up.
I have spent ages creating a work diary and have protected the sheets using VBA however on finishing the sheet one important thing that needs to happen is the ability to copy and paste information from the boxes to another worksheet. i.e MONDAY - SUNDAY
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?
I am having trouble disabling the "Preview" button when calling Application.Dialogs(xldialogprint) in XL2003. I have an xlSheetVeryHidden worksheet containing a form which is made visible programatically when the user wishes to print a copy (code below). I want the user to be able to have access to the functionality of the xlDialogPrint dialog (i.e. select desired print destination, number of copies, pages per sheet etc.) but I also want to prevent them modifying the page setup of the protected worksheet by initiating a preview from the print dialog.
