All of the following cheats require you to hold [Left Shift] down and then press the [Numpad - (minus)] button. Then let go and type the appropriate cheat code (capitalization doesn't matter). Nothing is displayed as you type however the key strokes are being recorded.

ENDMISSION 
Ends the mission.
CAMPAIGN 
Unlocks all campaign missions (This must be entered in the appropriate campaign screen you want unlocked. Unlocking one campaign will result in other campaigns that are unlocked to be re-locked.)
MISSIONS 
Unlocks all single player missions (This must be entered in the appropriate single missions screen.)
SAVEGAME 
Saves the game in your current mission. Can be useful as a quicksave function.
TOPOGRAPHY 
Generates a map in EMF vector format. The file is (not) always created at the root directory of the C: drive (Windows 7 with UAC might put the file in Virtualstore, "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Virtualstore" ). The output file is generated when the map is next viewed in game. German Users: Enter TOPOGRAPHZ instead.

Unlocking Missions

To unlock stand-alone mission, locate your ArmA profile first (it will be named (username).ArmAProfile, and will be either in My Documents\ArmA or in My Documents\ArmA Other Profiles. Open it in a text editor and change the section

activeKeys[]=
{
};

to

activeKeys[]=
{ "M00", "M01", "M02", "M03", "M04", "M05", "M06", "M07", "M08", "M09", "M10", 
"TT01", "TT02", "TT03", "TT04", "TT05", "TT06" };

In a more simple way just go to the mission screen press Left Shift down and then press the Numpad - (minus) button and type MISSIONS then revert the last mission.
