I have is that the code does call the spell-check up and it goes through the motions.
However, when you perform this manually (as in from the toolbar), the spell-check accepts the items as you put in the text bar at the top if you change it.
When doing it via the VBA macro code, it will not accept the user amended-suggestions unless you highlight the (top) text bar area/row/cell to get it to accept some things - otherwise it just accepts the suggestion the checker gives n the section below - not the text you have amended.
I have a set of text boxes in my sheet. I was wondering if there is a way to perform a spell check on the textboxes only (not the cells in the worksheet). I have tried searching the code on the forum, found some which are using 'MSForms.TextBox', dont know why I am getting error.
I need to make a excel costing model to calculate various products prices. I am using Excel 2010.
I have many products and do not need all of them displaying at the same time, therefor I inserted a Checkbox (ActiveX Control) that hides my columns that I do not need. I did that by inserting the following and it works fine :
The problem is I now need to lock certain cells so that they can remain fixed and the recipe cannot change.
Once locked my checkbox no longer works and I get the following error :
"Run-time error '1004': Unable to set hidden property of the range class"...
We're setting up a test for candidates in an Excel 2010 workbook and want to get a sense of their native ability to spell. We'd like to disable spell check for the entire workbook. I've looked in Options>Proofing, even tried removing the dictionary, but haven't found a way to completely disable spell check from working. Is it possible to achieve? We'd settle for being able to disable spelling within a textbox.
I just noticed that if you already have a workbook protected and then run code that will protect it, it will become unprotected! (I have a line of code to protect the workbook in the workbook_open event; incase the last user unprotected the book on the last use). Apparently it doesn't work like protected worksheets, where if the sheet is password protected and you have code that tries to reprotect it with a different password nothing will happen. I can not find a way to check if the workbook is protected (and if so skip, but if not then protect). Worksheets have "activesheet.protectcontents" to tell you True/False.
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 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 have a workbook whose worksheets use protection (don't want my calculations stomped on).
When the Protection is on, the search function does not work. You call it up, write what you are looking for, it accepts it, and then when you tell it to search it ignores you.
When you turn the protection off, the search function works just fine.
HOWEVER....Other workbooks I have with protection on its sheets do not share this problem, just this one workbook. And the problem is on all sheets in this workbook. The problem is not on any of the sheets in the other workbooks. I can't see anything different between them, but then I may not know what to look at.
Q1. How can we insert new rows in a protected sheet?
For example: In the attached sample protected excel sheet "insert rows.xlsx" , if for Employee ID and Name fields, the user has more no. of records than provided, how can he insert new rows considering the fact that Company ID and Name field are locked.
Or any way to address this issue via some other method like adding a scrollbar,etc.
I've locked certain columns on my worksheet so that users cannot overtype target dates etc. I've password protected the worksheet.
The password protection means that for some reason the users can't use the autofilters that are on the header row.
Can someone help me solve this problem; I still need the locked cells and password protection on the sheet but the success of the sheet depends on users being able to filter for specific rows using the autofilter....
When I protect my sheet and have the option to allow the users to autofilter the sheet, how come it doesn't work? I want to allow people to autofilter the data in the worksheet but not modify the contents of the cell.
I am looking for VBA code that will unprotect the Workbook, prompt the user for the number of rows to be added, find the last row in the Worksheet, insert the requested number and reprotect the Worksheet. I would like the location where the rows are inserted to NOT be dependent on the "active" cell.
I have a protected sheet to avoid delete of functions. In a specific area, however, i have merged cells of five columns in rows. Because in these lines i have write some text and overcomes the rows, after, what i do is: i unmerge the rows and choose 3 rows from 5 columns together and merge. Thus, the text is in one framework. In fact, every time, i want to merge different regions, but always i want to merged any areas who have marked with the mouse. Then, i delete the text and i need to redo the context of three lines, three separate lines. I hope you understand what i need.MergeAndUnMerge.xlsm
I am working on an excel table in my worksheet contains formulas and locked cells. lets say table range is from column "a" to "f" and there is formula on cell in columns "c" and "f". I just locked cells in column "c" and "f" to prevent people changing the formula accidentally. but when the sheet is protected i am not able to insert or delete rows as the rows has locked cells in columns "c" and "f".
I tried the below macro to unlock the sheet, insert row and lock the sheet again:
So by running the macro it asks the password and do the job but the issue is it needs password and i do not want people to know my password. I don't want them able to unlock the workbook and make any undesired changes. I want them to be allowed insert or delete rows and input data in unlocked cell. I want the sheet to be locked all the time and only when people want to insert or delete a row it be unlocked and be locked again after inserting or deleting whit no need to insert password in this case only.
