how to protect excel work sheet with visual basic?

the macro code of protection is:
    ActiveSheet.Protect DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True

PS: I open excel with the following code:

    Set objExcel = GetObject(Source)
    objExcel.Application.Visible = True
    objExcel.windows(1).Visible = True
    objExcel.sheets(1).cells(1, 1).Value = "hihi"

........ after that I want to protect the workbook
