Format All Cells In All Sheets To Protection Hidden On Visible And Hidden Tabs

Feb 28, 2014

I am trying to format all cells on all sheets (hidden or otherwise) as "Locked" so when the sheets are protected the user can't see the formulas. This macro individually selects every sheet in the book and applys the formatting. Is there a way to modify this code to accomplish the same thing without having it actually select every sheet? The only reason it is an issue is that after running the macro you end up on the last sheet in the book.

Hidden/Visible Sheets In Listbox

Sep 22, 2009

I'm trying to create a userform that allows the user to swap sheets from visible to hidden status. I've made it to the point where all the sheet names are populated based on their current status in their respective listbox, but I am stuck on using the results of any swaps to newly set their visible property. the code I have in the userform is as follows:

Visible Sheets To Be Hidden With The Exception Of The Sheet Called "open". Then Is Saves The File

Sep 9, 2008

i am using the macro below to get excel to hide all sheets but the one called "open"...

Sub savemini()

ActiveWorkbook.Unprotect "letmein"

  For Each sh In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
       If Not sh.Name = "open" Then sh.Visible = xlVeryHidden
   Next sh

End Sub 

So the workbook is protected with the password "letmein", and the VB code above in theory should unlock the workbook, allowing all visible sheets to be hidden with the exception of the sheet called "open". Then is saves the file.

Now heres the odd bit... it works for certain people, but not for others. I have made sure those it wont work for are not doing anything weird and they are not.

The workbook i am using has a code that only opens certain sheets for certain users. I as a master user have access to all sheets. I can go into the users sheets and click the button that activates the macro above myself and it works fine, but for some users it wont work.

Very Hidden Sheets Are Very Hidden

Jan 2, 2007

i have an old spreadsheet that i created about a year or so ago.
i managed to make some sheets "very hidden" as opposed to just "hidden" or "visible".

the problem is i can't find them ! i have tried "format, sheet, unhide" but that is greyed out.

i do have passwords for them, but i can't find them to put these in!

LastRow Needs To Select Next VISIBLE Row (not Hidden Row)

Jul 19, 2007

I'm having a problem moving the cell cursor 2 rows down once I find my LastRow (see LastRow code below). My problem is I need to move down 2 VISIBLE Rows down and I'm running into it moving 2 Rows down whether they are Visible or Hidden? If Row 50 is my LastRow, and I have it move 2 rows down, if Row 52 is Hidden, it still moves to Row 52 which can't be seen by the user after I do my stuff to that row? I can't unhide any hidden rows for other reasons. Is there a way to have the cursor move down 2 VISIBLE Rows instead of 2 Rows regardless?

The code I use to select the LastRow is:

LastRow = Cells(4000, 8).End(xlUp).Row
I move down 2 more rows using:

Cells(LastRow + 2, 8).Select 'Then I do some stuff here for the user, so it can't be a hidden row

Spreadsheet Open But Not Visible. Hidden

Nov 8, 2006

I was working on a multi-tab spreadsheet (7 tabs to be exact) and I went to hide one of the tabs and all of a sudden the worksheet went away and I was left with my empty personal.xls spreadsheet. If I go into tools and visual basic I see my spreadsheet listed as VBAProject (Durex Sales Oct 1 to Oct 28 06.xls) with the 7 sheets listed below it within a folder called Microsoft Excel Objects, but I can't get it back in spreadsheet form.

Protecting Hidden Tabs

Jan 6, 2012

So I have a hidden tab I want to keep hidden. I know how to protect a sheet/workbook but I also have a Pivot tab I want people to be able to double click to get the background detail. Unfortunately protecting a workbook doesn't allow new tabs to be created. Is there anyway of making this happen? Essentially, keep my tab hidden and allow a new tab to be created once pivot data is double clicked.

Hidden Tabs And Passwords

Oct 13, 2007

I have been doing a lot of reading on the forums here on hiding tabs and passwords for my current project...and suffice to say I am completely...totally...stuck.

Basically, I have 11 different tabs that need to remain hidden until, the person clicks on a commandbutton which brings up a userform that asks for a password.

Now - I have it set up that the user prior to this stage chooses thier location and it populates a label1 field on the password request userform.

My biggest problem is this: I cannot seem to figure out how, in using a userform, to get the password to be recognized as is the
Private Sub TextBox1_Change()
a = UserForm12.TextBox1

If a "password" Then
MsgBox "Wrong Password"
Sheets("RatesII").Visible = xlSheetVeryHidden
End If
End Sub

Now, my idea is that once the correct password is used, the userform dissmisses itself, the correct sheet is activated and unhidden for viewing and the user goes about doing what they do on this sheet. I will also have a button on the sheet itself titled something like "Update" which will save the sheet, and re-hide it and call up the userform once again...something I am a little scetchy on at this time though I immagine I will figure it out.

VBA With Hidden Sheets

Dec 5, 2007

i've an excel file where a final presentable sheet is linked to some hidden sheets which i dont want the user to see. Thru VBA, i'm performing some format related stuff in those hidden sheets, using: Sheets("Historical1").Visible = True. later, VBA sets it back to FALSE. But, i want to get rid of this hiding/unhiding, if its possible. My code has the following structure:

Sub tame_blph1()
Sheets("Historical1").Visible = True
Dim coll As Integer
Dim startcoll As Integer
Dim endcoll As Integer
startcoll = 25
endcoll = 124
For coll = startcoll To endcoll Step 2
If Len(selection) > 0 Then Call Macro1
Next coll
Sheets("Historical1").Visible = False
End Sub

In other words, can we perform the above without hiding and unhiding the Sheet called "Historical1"

Hyperlinks To Hidden Sheets?

Jun 15, 2013

I have a worksheet with 28 sheets. I want the first sheet to be the only sheet displayed when opening the file and then want people to have the ability to click a hyperlink to unhide a particular sheet. Then when they go back to the main page (via another hyperlink), the sheet that was unhidden will be hidden again. I was able to put together some code from [URL]. When I click on a hyperlink on the main page, I get a "Subscript out of range" error and it highlights Sheets(strSheet).Visible=True from the Worksheet_FollowHyperlink code. I made a basic spreadsheet with just 3 sheets and plugged this code in and it worked fine so I'm not quite sure what the error is. I attached the spreadsheet I'm using.

Copy Hidden Sheets

Oct 17, 2007

I have 5 sheets in a workbook. Three are hidden. My code allows user to make as many copies of the hidden sheets as needed and place them at the end by means of a macro button. This works fine, but after multiple copies (4 to 15) it crashes! Don't know what I did wrong.

Sub CopyWs()

Sheet8.Visible = True
Sheet8.Copy After:=Sheets(Worksheets.Count)
Sheet8.Visible = False

Sheet9.Visible = True
Sheet9.Copy After:=Sheets(Worksheets.Count)
Sheet9.Visible = False

Sheet10.Visible = True
Sheet10.Copy After:=Sheets(Worksheets.Count)
Sheet10.Visible = False

Maximum Number Of Hidden Sheets?

Feb 25, 2009

I tried to Google this question but cannot find the answer. What is the maximum number of worksheets that Excel can hide within a workbook? I have a macro which hides all worksheets with the exception of the active worksheet and it has never failed. But this morning I had started working on a workbook containing many sheets and when I ran my HideSheets macro a maximum of 14 sheets hides every time. Is it my code (see below)?

Sheet "data2" is unprotected. I have tried "calling" the macro from the sheet1 module but it loops. I know it's simple but it's kicking my ***. data2 is hidden and workbook is unprotected as of now.

Table Of Contents For Hidden Sheets

Jan 3, 2012

I have to review work papers with 50+ sheets. The users often hide the sheets they do not use. As part of my review I have to review all sheets, even the hidden ones.

What I would like to achieve:

To create a list of all hidden sheets with hyperlinks so I can go directly to the hidden sheet. This would be the same as a table of contents but for hidden sheets.

Use Userform And Hidden Sheets At The Same Time

Feb 1, 2013

Is there a way to use a userform and hidden sheets at the same time?

I want to limit the access to the information through a userform but my userform requires me to unhide the userform to show. Is there a way to go around this? Because the information might be misused if the user can simply close the form and have access to the information in the sheet.

Macro For Selecting Hidden Sheets?

Dec 26, 2013

I have spreadsheet with 13 sheets the first of which is a title page, what I wish to do is hide the other twelve sheets and somehow be able to select them from a drop down box (or similar what ever works with a macro)on the front page, the selected sheets would then appear unhidden.

I am OK with formulas etc but macros are beyond my ability even trying to follow examples & tutorials online has me lost.

The sheets all have specific but different names and none need to be selected more than once (although if possible it would be good). I understand where to put the macro in but as to how it is written ......

Code To Show Very Hidden Sheets

Does anyone know how to modify this code so it will list all sheet including very hidden sheets? And is there a way to make the sheets appear in alphabetical order? I've tried to play with it, but I don't know enough about VB....
