Password Protect: Unlock The Worksheet, Autofilter It, Print It, Unfilter It, And Password Protect The Sheet Again?

Jan 12, 2007

I have a sheet that is password protected. I have this code attached to a command button. It will unlock the worksheet, autofilter it, print it, unfilter it, and password protect the sheet again. However it is protecting it without a password. I need to have it protected with the password so that someone will not be able to just go to tools to unprotect the sheet.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
ActiveSheet.Unprotect "rainforest"
Selection.AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=">0", Operator:=xlAnd
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, Collate:=True
Selection.AutoFilter Field:=1
ActiveSheet.Protect DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True _
, AllowSorting:=True, AllowFiltering:=True
End Sub

Password Protect Multiple Sheets With Macro

Jul 12, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with over a hundred tabs, each of which need to be password protected (same password).

I found code on that got me half way there. It protects all the spreadsheets, but it does not password protect the macro itself, meaning that anybody can step into the macro and unlock everything at the click of a button.

The code looks like this.

Sub ProtectAllSheets()
For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
ws.Protect Password:="secret123"
Next ws
MsgBox "All Worksheets Protected"

[Code] ....

What can I do to prevent people from stepping into the macro, or prompt a password to actually use the macro itself?

Password Protect/Unprotect Dialog Macro??? !

Mar 4, 2007

Stumbling over syntax on what should be easy. I want to password protect the active sheet using plain vanilla user input box; and then unprotect ALSO via an input box. Doesn't matter about masking the input with **** or whatever. Based on responses below, here is macro code I used:

To protect the sheet:

Sub ProtectSecurity()
Dim pword As String
pword = InputBox("Enter Password", "Password")
ActiveSheet.Protect pword
End Sub
To Unprotect the sheet:

Sub UnprotectSecurity()
Dim pword As String
pword = InputBox("Enter Password", "Password")
ActiveSheet.Unprotect pword
End Sub

Macro To Unprotect Sheet Unlock Cells And Protect Worksheet With Same Password

Jan 23, 2012

I have been really trying to get this sorted myself and I can get it to work with one exception. I can't get the sheet to lock with a password. It locks, but if I try to unlock it again, it does so without prompting me to enter a password.

Essentially I am wanting to unprotect two sheets, unlock the cells that were previously locked (so users couldn't enter data in them when the sheet is protected), then reapply the same password to protect the sheet, but now they will be able to enter data in the unlocked range of cells).

The second macro is to reverse the changes made in the first and 're-lock' the unlocked cells) (and again apply the same password to the sheet).

this is the code I have used.


Sheets("2012 Calculator 1 week").Select
ActiveSheet.Unprotect "taado"
Selection.Locked = False
Selection.FormulaHidden = False
Sheets("2012 Calculator 2 week").Select


I am assuming I have superfluous code in there, in addition to my mistake with the reapplication of the password.

Password Protect Worksheets

Feb 5, 2009

I am seeking a method of password protecting worksheets in a workbook. The users would all start on a sheet that has their names (A1 - A10) next to their names would be where they type in their password (B1 - B10). If their password is correct their assigned worksheet (Worksheet2) would be unlocked for editing.

Protect The Sheet With Password

May 12, 2009

1) I need to have code to protect the sheet that my user form is writing to. In other words, when the information from the user form is populated to the sheet, I want that sheet protected by a password that I set where I can unlock it, but no one else can.

2) I need to protect my VBA code with a password, I do not know how to do this, I have looked everywhere. I do however think this is something simple and I will kick myself once I find out where it is.

Protect Workbook No Password

Jan 11, 2010

I have a workbook that contains a series of macros designed to compare various reports and spit out a report. I don't want my users to have to insert a password, but I want to keep my workbook protected. I've already protected the macros in the VBA Properties, so those are pretty safe, but the worksheets in the workbook are susceptible to changes that will hose my macros.

Setting the workbook to "Read Only" in Properties on our shared drive helps, but any user can change that at will. Within Excel, going to Options, Security, I can set a password so no-one can modify that workbook, but that pops up a password box when they open the workbook. I'd like to NOT have the password box pop up unless I need to make changes. Is there a way to do that? I've looked on the internet but can't find a solution on this one.

Protect The Worksheet With Password

Jun 7, 2008

I had the thought that maybe it would be possible to have a worksheet that is not protected when saved but when it is opened there would be a sub-routine under Sub_Workbook Open that would step through each sheet and assign a random password. And when the workbook is saved it is saved without passwords again.

In this way there would be nothing for a password cracker to pick at. The only flaw I see would be that the password to open the VBA module would need to be static and this would open up the programming to change and remove. But wouldn't this be effective against most users who would only know about the utilities to open the passwords and not the programming behind excel.

Password Protect Tabs

Mar 23, 2004

I have one workbook with different Tabs that are tied to a master sheet.

Can this be done?

Password Protect W/ Expiry

Jun 18, 2006

We are making a complex financial calculator that we will let licensees use for a limited time.

The calculator could be an online php form, however we decided to go with excel for its ease to program the code required.

Question is:

Since the licensees are allowed to use the calculator only for a short period of time, we want to be able to password protect it with an expiry date.

Meaning that if they want to use it pass their time limit, they would need to re-enter a new password that we would provide them.

Is there such an application made for excel worksheet?

Set A Password Under The Permissions Tab But All It Does Is Protect The Structure?

Dec 3, 2012

I have set a password under the permissions tab but all it does is protect the structure and not the content. I want all users to be able to view the file, but have to have the password to edit any of the sheets or data on the sheets. I can still protect the individual sheets, but that doesnt quite do what I want.

No Password Asked When Using VBA To Protect Sheet

Feb 21, 2008

This question is related to my post here:

When you protect a worksheet via VBA then unprotect it the conventional way via: Tools>Protection>Unprotect Sheet. Why is it when you unprotect a worksheet in this way Excel does not ask you for a Password. You simpy only have to select Unprotect Sheet and the sheet is unprotected which for me kinda defeats the object.

Protect Sheet With Password In Workbook

Mar 15, 2012

I'm looking to password protect the sheets in my workbook (using vba) but I can't seem to join this up with allowing users to edit scenarios.

If I record the protection I get this:

ActiveSheet.Protect DrawingObjects:=False, Contents:=True, Scenarios:= _

I normally use:

ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:="password"

I just need to combine the two. Adding the password before 'DrawingObjects' or at the end doesn't seem to work.

Password Protect Each Sheet Within Workbook?

May 23, 2012

I have 5 sheets in my work book.

Sheet Names:
1) PasswordPage - - I would like this to be the page where a user needs to type in their password. If it is correct, their own worksheet would display.
2) Sally - - Hidden and protected, unless Sally types in correct password. Sally's password would be Summer
3) Vanessa - - Hidden and protected, unless Vanessa types in correct password. Vanessa's password would be Pluto
4) George - - Hidden and protected, unless George types in correct password. George's password would be Carpet
5) Alexander - - Hidden and protected, unless Alexander types in correct password. Alexander's password would be Lampost

I would like to ensure that noone else see's anyone else's sheet unless they know the appropriate password, as each individual sheet contains sensitive information.

I also plan to "protect" each sheet also, so that the Sally, Vanessa, George and Alexander cannot make changes to the formulas, etc. - - this I already know how to do.

My question relates more to, How do I hide/ password protect each sheet as outlined above? I assume I must use visual basic, however I am not very familar with it.
