I have a protected sheet with the options below and this sheet contains some hidden rows / columns.
ThisWorkbook.Sheets(ws.Name).EnableOutlining = True ThisWorkbook.Sheets(ws.Name).Protect password, _ AllowFormattingColumns:=True, _ AllowFormattingRows:=True, _ userInterfaceOnly:=True, _ contents:=True, _ AllowFormattingCells:=True
And I use this code to block sheets but I want to allow users to also copy only visible cells (using alt +; for example).
I saw the Microsoft website with the documentation (already posted by @Mech), but I tested the options and none worked except the option Contents:= False, but this option set to False allows the user to copy only visible cells edit the contents of the cells (which I don’t want to happen).
Does anyone know any other way?
Thanks in advance!
This code should do what you are looking for based on unprotecting the cells for copying purposes.
ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:="password" Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Select ActiveSheet.Protect Password:="password", DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True
