Unprotect Macro Not Working

Feb 2, 2014

It gives me a error and says my password is wrong. I have user names set to return the password so that it is unlocked for certain people. It works for unprotecting the sheets. I modified it and added it back in to try to do it for the workbook.

[Code] .........

I realize that they " and () around the password are differant, but that's how I last left them. I have tried several combinations and it just gives me more errors saying expected end of statement, etc.

Macro: Protect & Unprotect Sheets

Nov 9, 2006

Is there an easy way (using a macro) to unprotect and protect sheets?

Most sheets in a certain workbook are protected except a few cells that are open for manual entry. Because I have links to other cells in other workbooks, I must unprotect those sheets/fields before I can edit the links. And I MUST ensure all sheets are protected again when I'm done with my work.

Also, is it possible to password-protect that specific macro so I'm the only one who can run it to unprotect and protect?

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

Unprotect Form Control Button With Assigned Macro?

Oct 9, 2012

So I have a sheet with a lot of formulas and form control buttons that have been assigned macros.

When I go to protect certain cells and lock them and the activate sheet protection, suddenly my form control buttons with the assigned macros don't work.

I still need to protect some cells with formulas and don't want to leave the whole worksheet unprotected, but in order to allow the form control button macros to run, it appears that's what I have to do....or, is there another way to do this?

Would it be possible that the button (first) works (second) understand whether or not protect / unprotected and do the opposite?

Sub Protect
Activeworkbook.protect password:="password", structure:=FALSE, Windows:=false

Excel 2003 :: Unprotect And Protect Multiple Works Sheets With Macro?

Feb 25, 2008

I have an annual leave (vacation) work book with a summary page work sheet and separate work sheets for each month i.e. Jan, Feb, Mar.....to......Dec. In order to protect the formulas I have protected them by allowing only access to the input cells on each work sheet and the protect each work sheet.

When someone either joins or leaves the team I have to manually unprotect each sheet and protect again when I have completed the amendments to each of the 13 tabs.

macro code I would need to unprotect all the works sheets in one go (as I use the same password for all the sheets) and reset the passwords (protect) the sheets with more macro code.

I will be running the two macros from my own personal.xls file and ideally they would be fully automatic i.e. I would not need to input the passwords in to unlock or lock the work sheets as the password would be written in the code already

Excel version 2003

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.

Sub PART_YEAR()

Sheets("2012 Calculator 1 week").Select
ActiveSheet.Unprotect "taado"
Range("D20:D23").Select
Selection.Locked = False
Selection.FormulaHidden = False
Sheets("2012 Calculator 2 week").Select

[Code]...

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

Protected Sheet - Macro To Unprotect, Refresh Sql Query & Re-protect Fails

Feb 21, 2007

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.

Sub AgedStockParameters()
nmb = ActiveWorkbook.Name
ndx = ActiveSheet.Name
Workbooks(nmb).Activate
Worksheets(ndx).Activate
ActiveSheet.Range("A1").Select
WkshtQryCon = Workbooks(nmb).Worksheets(ndx).QueryTables(1).Connection
ActiveCell.Value = WkshtQryCon
Range("A2").Select
WkshtQryFld = Workbooks(nmb).Worksheets(ndx).QueryTables(1).CommandText
ActiveCell.Value = WkshtQryFld.......................

Macro Not Working On Other Spreadsheet

Feb 7, 2014

The attached workbook contains a macro ("Transfer_Data") that copies values from one cell to another when the "Update Progress" button (near cell A3) is selected. It works perfectly fine in this workbook but when I try the same code in another workbook, which looks and operates exactly like this one, nothing happens.

Is this due to a security setting or missing code line items?

One Macro Stops Another From Working

Dec 2, 2011

I have this macro which sits in the workbook module:

Code:
Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Static OldRng As Range

On Error Resume Next
If Application.CutCopyMode = xlCopy Or Application.CutCopyMode = xlCut Then
OldRng.EntireColumn.FormatConditions(1).Delete
OldRng.EntireRow.FormatConditions(1).Delete

[Code] .......

It's used to highlight the selected/active row.

But, as soon as I run another macro, it simply stops working entirely and I'm left with a row permanently highlighted until you manually remove the conditional formatting. All formats and cell colours controlled in the other macro stop working as well. This is the other (edited for publishing) macro, which is used to send an email, and is found in a module:

Code:
Sub Send_Mail()
'this sends an email that sends a text message

Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object
Dim MyButton As String
Dim strTo As String

[Code] .......

I didn't write the first macro so I'm not sure where the problem is? I'm guessing there is something in the code that is stopping it from working (i.e. running conditional formats) as soon as another macro is run? Is that was is happening?

Subtotal Not Working In Macro

Jan 15, 2009

I've got a semi-recorded macro to format a report I run, and towards the end it deals with sorting, subtotalling, formatting text etc. The main function of the macro is to split a large report into several smaller reports defined by whichever manager name appears in the relevant column. The smaller reports need subtotalling by 2 different columns so I have the following macro code :


Cells.Select
Selection.Subtotal GroupBy:=2, Function:=xlSum, TotalList:=Array(5), _
Replace:=False, PageBreaks:=False, SummaryBelowData:=True
Selection.Subtotal GroupBy:=1, Function:=xlSum, TotalList:=Array(5), _
Replace:=False, PageBreaks:=False, SummaryBelowData:=True

For some reason this only subtotals by the second column and not the first. I tried swapping them over so GroupBy1 then GroupBy2 but it's still the same. Anyone got any ideas why this might be? I appreciate it's not the smoothest code I could use but I don't know enough about code to do any better.

Ctrl+down Not Working In Macro

Jul 22, 2009

I've got a column that auto-populates from anther column depending on what's input, and that's working fine. I also have a button set up to select and copy the auto-populated data. I just recorded myself select the top cell and hit shift+ctrl+down to select just the values that are populated. What it does, however, is selects the blank ones too. I know the counta() function would work, but I don't know how to input that into a macro.

The macro I have now is:

Sub Copy()
Range("B2").Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
Selection.Copy
End Sub

The column is only 25 rows tall.

Save As Macro Not Working

I have a macro to export two worksheets and save as, but the save as part will not work, it just exports to Book1.

Ive checked the directory and everything is fine.

I want the value of a cell in one of the exported worksheet to be included in the save as name.

I'm just wondering if the code needs to somehow specify the worksheet to get the cell value from or will it default to the first worksheet. but either way my code is still not working and i can't tell why.

Should i just create a seperate macro for the save as?

IF Function Not Working For Entire Row While On Macro

May 10, 2014

I got a problem with a macro i'm working on. I got column D which contains text as "Figures", "Toys", "3DS", "PS3" etc. I also got column N where i need the macro to display "Toys" if it's a toy, figure, etc; or "Games" if it's "PS3", "PS4" etc.

I'm using the following code, to also select only blank rows (so to ignore row 1 which is table header). Problem is that the result shows only "Games".

VB:
Columns("N:N").Select
Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).Select
Selection.FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(RC[-9]=""*toys*"",""Toys"",""Games"")"

If i am correct all the rows with a value less than 1 should be hidden right? However, some rows are hidden when they shouldn't be.

Im working on a quotation with different products in it. And the rows with a 0 in it should be hidden and that's pretty much working. But it also hides some of the subtotals(which i dont want) and some stay unhidden.

Saving As Stops Macro Working

i have a worksheet named for example 'allocation 1' this is a master document and is opened and modified and 'saved as' under a customer name. This then stops a few important macros working properly because they refer to the original title and not the new saved title. Is there any code that will let the macro recognise any new title it is saved under?

Workbook_SheetChange Evet Macro Not Working

Mar 5, 2008

I found the following code elsewhere on the net, and have attempted to use it in my workbook to change the names of all 31 worksheets when a certain cell's (C7) value changes. The code looks good to me, so I cannot understand why it is not working. I am not getting error messages, just no changes to the sheet names.

I believe this may be due to the value of C7 on each sheet being dictated by a formula, so the value is not being changed with the sheet active, but indirectly with a formula that pulls the value from a cell on another sheet, and then adds.

(i.e. =TEXT('Populator Tools'!$C$25+1,"mm-dd-yy") )

Am I completely off base with this assumption, or on the right track; and if I am on the right track how do I fix this so it works?

Code Below.

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:
