Hiding macros

What is the best way to hide macros created in an Excel 97 modules ? This should include not allowing unauthorised access to the macros. Also is it possible to hide what macro was assigned to a command button ?

you can hide a macro that is assigned to a command button if you protect the sheet where it is.
You can hide macros that you created in Excel, preventing that users can't access the Visual Basic Editor.

I hope this helps.
Hi again,
as i'm going on weekend and before you ask more things about what i've just wrote, i'm giving you some more explanations.
About the command button, the protection only works if the button have his "Locked" property checked.
About preventing access to VB editor you can disable this item from Toolbars option of View menu and intercept the Alt+F11 that opens also the editor, or in last resource you can create a new menu bar that you can control.

You were definately right about blocking access to the macro through a command button. I however found out the only fool proof way of blocking access to the code itself is to go to properties of the module and password protect the code.

Appreciate the contribution.
